The Mini Game Review Scoring System

We have been debating for a while now dropping the review scores completely, and creating a 3 tier scoring system where all games would be put into one of 3 categories: Good, OK & Bad. But with some games, this just wouldn’t work, so instead I have decided to try to explain the scoring system we use at Mini Game Reviews.

7,8,9 : These are the good games. Games with these scores do things well, or are great fun to play. It could be that a game in this section has a great story,  or brilliant gun play, great atmosphere or all of the above.  Any of these games are good value for the money at full price, and if you find them cheap, then really you can’t go wrong.

6, 5, 4, 3 : These are games that are fun to play. At full price you would potentially feel  disappointed with them, but if you see them cheap you could easily find a good amount of entertainment from these titles.  You have to judge for yourself.

2,1,0 : This is where the worst games live. These are games that I really can find no incentive to finish, play, or even put into my XBOX360 again.  I tried to play these games, but just: NO!

I hope this clears up the scoring system that we use on Mini Game Reviews and helps you understand that just because a game didn’t get a 9, it doesn’t mean it isn’t a good, fun game.
