    Is it possible to add a new field (option) in reviews.

    For my site http://www.delhi-fun-dos.com I'd like to have a place to enter the venue. How can I achieve that?

    Just like place to enter rating, the good, the bad I want an option to add venue and would like it to show in home page.

    You could hand code it yourself, but I don't reccomend it unless you fell comfortable with php and know your way around WordPress templates.
    Is it really very important that venue is not just a part of the post content but in separate field? Couldn't you just type it with the rest of your content, at the very beggining or at the end?
    If not, you could try Advanced Custom Fields plugin. Never worked with it myself, but it looks promising.

    No, I'm not comfortable with PHP, so no point of hand-coding

    NO its not very important, because this site is just a personal blog i write with a friend of mine. Not a clients project. So yes I can write it in the review itself. Since game-press is made for game reviews I can understand it doesn't have venue field but for a site like mine where we review events in and around city venue matters to an extent. In fact we have a page called fun-do venues (and we have a venue of the month as well)

    Ya I'll try Advanced Custom Fields plugin. I hope it works the way I want it to.... let me check and I'll get back to you.

    I tried Advanced Custom Fields plugin. Didn't do anything for me. I saw the training video on their site. Not my cup of tea.

    Then I installed "Types - Complete Solution for Custom Fields and Types"

    It actually created a custom field in my game reviews-"venue" where I can add the venue...

    see snapshot here: http://delhi-fun-dos.com/venue.jpg

    The only hitch is it doesn't show in my review anywhere... neither on home page (Where ideally I'd like it) nor in the actual review page that comes after clicking the post title.

    So now it seems all fine in backend there is nothing on site - on frontend

    I've never worked with Types plugin, so I don't know why your custom field is not visible. Did you read their documentation? At the end it talks about displaying custom fields.
