Review System

Every video game site or blog has their own system and criteria when it comes to reviewing games.  When determining how I would be reviewing games here on “The Exclaiming Gamer”, I decided to go with a simple, yet elegant system that will allow you to quickly tell how I feel about a game before even reading the review.  All scores on the site will be given out on a 1-5 scale as follows:

1 – The game has too many glaring faults to recommend.

2 – The game has a good deal of problems, but some people may still find some enjoyment here.

3 – The game is average and will probably serve you well enough if you are looking for something to play.

4 – The game is above-average and you should definitely consider buying it.

5 – The game is great and if you like games, you should get up from your computer and buy it now.

Now, even though you will clearly be able to tell what I feel about a game from the very start of the review, it will really benefit you to read through the entire written review.  It is there where I will make my case for why the game deserves its assigned score.  You will be able to see why I think a game is good or bad.  The written review will give you the breakdown of the strong and weak points of a game, including its best features and biggest issues.

Remember, at the end of the day, I am trying to help you make good choices with your hard earned money.  I know what it is like to get burned on a game and I want to help you cut through the hype and the spin that is all around the Internet so that you can be an educated consumer.
