If you’re viewing this, you’re probably thinking, “what is this?” The answer: it’s everything and it’s nothing. The alpha and the omega. The review and the anti-review. Actually, it’s just the review, THE review. Stating our opinion.
We use a five-point system with no half points, using numbers and words. We can’t reiterate enough that our reviews are the reviewer’s opinion. Thus the final score given to the game reflects their opinion on the game and not anyone else’s. This includes you, me, and anyone else that might be on the Twinfinite staff.
The words are there to be clearer about what the numbers mean. We hate what the point scale for game reviews has become and don’t intend to abuse it any more than it’s already been abused. However, we also understand that it’s a futile attempt which alienates ourselves by ignoring that scoring exists at all.
We simply won’t write about something if it’s not worth writing about. If the sound is adequate, if the menus are functional but not amazing, literally no one cares.
We also have a final breakdown section that looks a little something like this:
The green will be for positive points, while red will be for negative. Pretty simple.
Although you should really read the entire review, if you insist on skipping to the bottom, the score plus the final breakdown should give you an idea of how we felt in a super concise way.
Without further ado, here are our scores and what they mean:
