Review Ethics

All members of the team may have a hand in reviewing games. We’re all different people with different interests, and so that means that one member of the team may score a game differently than another person would. Games are always reviewed fairly, and the final number given in a review is always representative of our thoughts on the game as best as it can possibly be.

We review a game based on our experience playing that game. We do not let external issues impact the score we give a game.

Reviews are always impartial. We have never and will never accept payment for reviews.

Our review scale

We review games on a 10-point scale, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best a game can possibly get. Our scale is as follows:

  1. Unplayable
  2. Awful
  3. Bad
  4. Sub-par
  5. Mediocre
  6. Decent
  7. Good
  8. Great
  9. Outstanding
  10. Phenomenal
  11. What games we review
