This paper presents an evaluation methodology to reveal the relationships between the
attributes of software products, practices applied during the development phase and the user
evaluation of the products. For the case study, the games sector has been chosen due to easy
access to the user evaluation of this type of software products. Product attributes and practices
applied during the development phase have been collected from the developers via
questionnaires. User evaluation results were collected from a group of independent evaluators.
Two bipartite networks were created using the gathered data. The first network maps software
products to the practices applied during the development phase and the second network maps
the products to the product attributes. According to the links, similarities were determined and
subgroups of products were obtained according to selected development phase practices. By
this way, the effect of development phase on the user evaluation has been investigated.
