About Our Reviews
GameCloud has experimented with several approaches since it’s initial foundation, and while it is very important for us to deliver an unbiased perspective, it also proved crucial to develop some form of rating scale to surmise our reviews if we were going to be relevant in the industry. Over time, we have evolved with the help of reader feedback, and as such, we have chosen to use a numerical scale that is broken down by several categories.
We chose to use categories because we understand our reader’s time is valuable, and thus, wanted to make it easier to locate information that was most relevant to the individual in the quickest way possible. We appreciate that each person will go into a game with different expectations, based on their own unique interests, and this is why we feel breaking up a review works best. Ultimately, it allows us to rate several core components instead of just the game itself, and essentially, provide a greater perspective to our audience. Additionally, we use a decimal scale because our overall score is the average of the categories, with the final sway at the discretion of the Editor.
We stand confident that our values define our words as honest, while our rating system and structure provides accurate scoring that helps readers locate the information that’s most important to them in an efficient manner.
