Revamped Review System Incoming

VGBReviewChange.jpgI have big news to inform you about regarding our review rating system. In a move to streamline our reviews and provide a more personal format unhampered by the frequent inconsistencies that come into play with a number-based scale, we have now decided to adopt a straightforward “Buy It,” “Try It,” or “Skip It” three-tier rating scale. The idea was actually tossed around early last year, but never took off (mainly because I was against it at first). After a hectic holiday season left us well behind on the review front, though, it became apparent that a change needed to be made, and now that the change has been made we hope it will enable us to share our impressions and recommendations on all the latest titles with much more consistency and frequency than before.

A few minor details are still being ironed out, but the new format will be going into effect this week, at which point our Review Scoring System page will be updated to reflect the changes and we will begin to venture back into our archives to update past reviews to fit the new scale. Once officially in place, watch for a much more consistent review flow to follow. In the immediate future, I’m personally wrapping up reviews for Beautiful Katamari, NFL Tour, Soldier of Fortune: Payback, Link’s Crossbow Training and Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice to name but a few (my stack of games to catch up on here is far too long to list), and I believe Greg is cooking something up for Mass Effect, so stay tuned for those and plenty more very soon.
