The Game Noch mal! has two ratings: 9 and 6.
The average rating is 4.250

Seems not so close to me...

Ok, thank you. I searched for something like this, but couldn't find an answer.

But I still don't understand what's happening here exactely and why other games have the "correct" avg rating (like Mission Impractical: two rating: 10 and 8, avg is 9).

The 9 rating was only just entered today, so the site hasn't recalculated the proper data. It only does this once per day, sometime around 2am EDT (GMT-5).

This is the reason. It's the geekrating that includes the dummy votes, not the average rating.
