PostSubject: Review Section - Rules   Mon Jul 05, 2010 10:26 pm

Read these before posting reviews:

•Reviews must be written by yourself. Any reviews from other websites (GameSpot, IGN, etc) will be immediately removed.
•No biased reviews. Reviews should focus both the good and bad qualities of a game, not one or the other.
•Reviews must have substance to them. A one-paragraph review stating how Halo kicks butt, without any reasoning, will be deleted.
•Reviews must adhere to the SBC rules. No advertising outside competition, no '1337' or 'txt'-talk, and no swearing.
•A review's title must follow this style: [SYSTEM] Name of Game - Author of Review (ex: [PS3] Killzone 2 - GlidingGoose). If a game is on more than one system, use the system you played it on, but note the fact that it is available on more than one system in your review. Here are the tags for the current-gen systems: [NDS], [X360], [PS3], [PSP],[PC]
•A rating system must be presented at the end of your review. The rating system will consist of a summary of Presentation, Graphics, Sound, Gameplay, and Lasting Appeal, just like the IGN reviews. Each section will be reviewed out of 10. In addition to this, each review must have a total. The total will be the sum of the sections previously mentioned, and will be out of 50.

No get reviewing!

Here's a template based on those rules. Under summary, write a quick paragraph about what the game's about, and a few facts about it. Under gameplay, write how the gameplay is, under Presentation, write how the game presents the story, objectives, etc. Under visuals, write about the colors and graphics of the game. Under sound, write about the music and ambient noise of the game. Under replay value, write about why you keep playing the game even after the story is finished and all objectives are done.

The ratings are self explanatory.

Code:
[b]Summary: [/b]


[b]Gameplay: [/b]

[b]Presentation: [/b]

[b]Visuals: [/b]

[b]Sounds: [/b]

[b]Replay Value: [/b]


[u][b]Ratings[/u][/b]

[b]Presentation:[/b] -/10
[b]Graphics:[/b] -/10
[b]Sound:[/b] -/10
[b]Gameplay:[/b] -/10
[b]Lasting Appeal:[/b] -/10

K, I think this thread got its point across. If there's anything else that needs added, put it in the Help/Suggestions section.
