Solution: Only allow verified owners to review games. Next, for the overall score of a game assign increasing weight to scores given by people who have played the game longer. Thus, bombers who don't own the game can't review, and bombers who've played the game an hour count far less than those who've played for ten or twenty.

Their approach isn't bad, but I think mine is better.
This is pretty much the only viable solution: Limit reviews to people who actually own and have played the game.

Amazon has the "verified purchase" tag, but Valve should take that a step further. If you don't own the game, you really shouldn't be reviewing it.
