That's the whole point. Games don't get popular unless there's a reason for it. Of course, scores should always be taken with a grain of salt, since everyone's taste is different. But personally, I think "other's recommendations" + "your own rating after the trial version" reduces your chance of buying a landmine the most. All eroges own much of their sales to kuchikomi (word of the mouth), after all. In the end, it's all about popularity.
I don't know about the others here, but I buy my games legally, so I certainly don't have the courage or money to buy games just because they look interesting or pretty. H2O, for example, was a landmine for me. To be realistic (financially), I'd rather let good games slip by due to bad reviews than to trust my senses and step on a landmine.

Quite a busy server, it is now.
It's not a demo (as in trial version), but a 13-minute game introduction movie featuring Celes and Madoka.
