We Want To Review Your Games!
If you would like Velocity Gamer to review your game, don’t hesitate to ask. Just contact our Editor-in-Chief at email@example.com or our reviews editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. We always do our best to review the games we are sent. The Velocity Gamer team values honesty above all else. If your game isn’t one of the best, we will give you our complete and honest feedback. Sometimes we take a bit longer than other sites to get our review up, but that is because we play the games in-depth and make sure we know everything we need about that game before we give it a final score. We pride ourselves in having unbiased and very informed reviews.
We don’t usually review MMOs, unless they’re on consoles. MMOs on the PC are more fluid than their living room counterparts, and usually what you get on Day 1 is the final game. We also don’t change our review scores after the fact, because the current over-reliance on patches should not be encouraged. The only exception is if we receive a pre-release copy, write the review, and then a day one patch significantly changes some technical issues we took umbrage with.
Velocity Gamer Scoring Rubric:
100%: Amazing. No game is perfect, but everyone should consider picking this one up, even if you don’t particularly like the genre or series.
90%: Excellent. The best of its kind, but still lacks a certain universal appeal. Highly recommended.
80%: Great. There’s a lot to like and this counts as a recommendation, although there are some aspects that could stand to be improved before it becomes an excellent game.
70%: Good. The developers are on the right track, but work still needs to be done before it can be called a great game.
60%: Above Average. Not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but not easy to recommend either. If you haven’t already found something to like, you probably never will. There are many things that should be fixed before it can be considered a good game.
50%: Average. A game stuck in this limbo is possibly sadder than any traditionally “bad” release.
40%: Bad. There may be a few things about this game that are good, but they’re few and far between. What doesn’t work overwhelms what does. Needs serious design changes or a ton of patches before it can be considered average.
30%: Real Bad. Oh man, is this one a stinker. Somewhere along the line, any chance this game had at quality left a long time ago.
20%: Terrible. Don’t buy it for anything. Needs to be rebuilt from scratch.
10% A war crime. You should purchase the game just to set it on fire and watch it burn.
