How we score

Games Master - - Reviews The Final Verdict -

0-39 Aw­ful Avoid it as you would a bul­let with your name on. 40-59 Poor Ma­jor is­sues here that won’t be solved with a hug. 60-69 De­cent A mixed bag filled with sweets and sharp stones. 70 -79 Good Some flaws, but still a very en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence. 80-89 Ex­cel­lent Buy it, love it, thank us when you’re done. 90-100 Out­stand­ing A rare and es­sen­tial piece of bril­liance.

The small print: We rate games in com­par­i­son to what else is avail­able on the same sys­tem, in the same genre, and for the same for­mat at the time of re­lease. So this year’s FIFA might score less than a FIFA from three years ago, but still be a bet­ter game. Be­cause time, and our ex­pec­ta­tions, move on. Hey, you’re smart, you get it…

Not awarded based sim­ply on score, but rather given to games that pos­sess a spe­cial blend of qual­i­ties. For in­stant clas­sics that you won’t re­gret own­ing.
