What is this Shortgamereview thing anyway?
Shortgamereview is basically a blog with really short, straightforward video game reviews. We mostly write about new releases but essentially review any game we stumble upon.
Why so short?
There are zillions of pages with game articles but these are usually longer (at least 400 words). Sometimes people don’t want to read through all of it just to know why that game is so awesome so we post our opinion in compact writings that give you some insight on the games and score them on a 1-10 scale.
We rate games on a scale of 1 to 10. There’s also a Something Special badge for those titles we found unique or surprising (note however, this has nothing to do with a high rating). It is impossible to give a video game a fully objective score and different authors have different rating styles but our scores may be interpreted like this:
10 - An exceptional game. Go and get it!
9 - This game is among the best. Give it a try!
8 - A good game worth playing, though it’s not perfect.
7 - Still pretty good, might have some smaller issues but it’s enjoyable.
6 - The reason may be some major bugs, boring gameplay or other issues. You may like it, or maybe not.
5 - Average game, if you haven’t got any better you may give it a try.
4 - Below average, a bit of a disappointment.
3 - This game has some serious issues. Not recommended.
2 - If I were you, I wouldn’t play that…
1 - No, just no. Avoid at all costs.
We’re a bunch of gamers who enjoy writing about games as much as playing them. If you have thoughts on the posts, feel free to comment. We hope you’ll find the information you’re looking for and enjoy reading this short game review blog.
