Our scoring system explained
00%-09% Broken or offensively bad; absolutely no value. Example LeisureSuitLarry:MagnaCumLaude 10%-19% We might be able to find one nice thing to say about it, but still not worth anyone’s time or money. Example Gettysburg:ArmoredWarfare 20%-29% Completely falls short of its goals. Very few redeeming qualities. Examples FamilyGuy:BacktotheMultiverse 30%-39% An entirely clumsy or derivative effort. There’s little reason to play this game over a similar, better one. Examples TrialsoftheBloodDragon 40%-49% Flawed and disappointing. Examples Aliens:ColonialMarines 50%-59% Mediocre.
