After reading our in-depth analysis of a game, you're probably left wondering if you should actually pick up that particular game or not? Well, that's why we provide a score out of 10 at the end of each review.
The score is based upon the opinion of that particular reviewer and will most certainly be different according to everyone's tastes. Here's a break down of our scores...
10 - This score represents true perfection in video games and is as high as we are able to score titles. Despite personal likes, dislikes and tastes, this game is a great package and well worth picking up for anyone's gaming pleasure.
9 - A game scored with 9 is considered by us to be an all round excellent package, that final mark may only be knocked off because of a slight few flaws, but it's most the time, worth picking up nonetheless.
8 - The score of 8 is still awarded to fantastic titles, that are more than worth your consideration. However, they contain nothing genre defining and are often simply what's been done before.
7 - Titles awarding with 7 are still more than fun in their own right, they certainly won't make a big impact when it comes to shifting consoles, but they can often be a heap of fun. Games awarding with 7 are still going to need some consideration when picking up though.
6 - Let's not forget that a game awarded with a score of 6 is still above average and technically a "better" game. It's going to feature a fair few flaws, but if you're a fan of the series of genre, you're most likely still going to enjoy this title.
5 - To problem is, most readers often perceive 5 as being a bad score and it's actually not, it's average. At the middle of our scoring spectrum, 5 represents a title that contains a vast mix of both good and bad features. Whether you buy it, that's up to you.
4 - This is when things actually do start going down hill, a game scored of 4 really does present a good few issues and is probably worth while avoiding.
3 - A score of 3 represents a game that has most likely been shoveled out without any due care or attention. We're not impressed in the slighted and we'd most likely imagine that you'll be far from impressed when you pick this one up.
2 - Here we have a title that we have no idea how it managed to pass through Nintendo's quality tests, with nothing but flaws around any corner, this title represents something that's barely playable. Don't be wasting your precious bells on this pile of junk.
1 - What can we say? We won't be held responsible if you for some reason, decided to pick this car crash of a game up! We dis-own you!
