About our Ratings System
Games Xtreme employs a simple method of scoring games based on a numerical scale, which ranges from 1.0 to 10 in 0.1 increments.
We do not score each part of a game such as the graphics and gameplay, the score reflects the reviewers enjoyment of the game as a whole, including all elements of the game such as sound, gameplay, graphics, multiplayer, etc. This means that a game does not have to look like a supermodel to score highly if it is a really enjoyable game to play.
This game rules, nothing else beats this game and everyone should just give up now! - Not many games get this score and those that do should feel privileged.
9.0 - 9.9: Excellent
Par Excellence, this game deserves to be in anyones collection and you need to play this at least once in your lifetime. A game that screams out quality and knows it!
8.0 - 8.9: Great
Most games seem to fall into this category... Most people will love it, a few wont, but you should give it a go.
7.0 - 7.9: Good
Games in this category have had the time spent on them and are quite fun to play but the faults are very noticable. While it is a good game, you will find better.
6.0 - 6.9: Above Average
Games in this category are quite good, just not good enough, its weaknesses outweight its strengths. It could be playable just approach it with caution.
5.0 - 5.9: Average
Most of the games that fall into this category do have some playability... you just cant find it.
4.0 - 4.9: Below Average
A game that just didnt get the attention it deserved. Probably with more time it could be made better but someone decided they didnt want to spend it.
3.0 - 3.9: Poor
The begining of a slippery slidey scale downwards.. games here just didnt have enough time spent on them and are just not fun.
2.0 - 2.9: Bad
A game so bad we just had to tag it. Probably worthy of a play to see how things can go wrong but not much else.
1.0 - 1.9: Mediocre
Whoever decided this game should be released was having a laugh. The game does not deserve the space we give it except to say "Avoid at all costs". Not many games get this, thank god!
