The Games Cabin prides itself on providing accurate, trustworthy information. That is why any game review written by staff is not only extensively researched but can only be published when the reviewer has had enough hands-on experience with the title in question. This allows for a holistic review to be written, covering gameplay, story, mechanics, soundtrack, depth, and much more.
The game reviews that are conducted on The Games Cabin are scored on a 10-point scale with 10 being a ‘greatest of all time’ contender and 1 being one of the worst gaming experiences possible. While our game reviews are written to inform consumers about upcoming titles, these scores are of one person’s opinion and your experience may differ, so we always recommend keeping an open mind if you are excited about a specific game release.
Here is a short breakdown of how the writer would describe a game being scored at a certain number:
- Unplayable, broken
- Playable but offensively bad
- Consistently unenjoyable, unoriginal ideas
- Some good ideas but poorly executed
- Boring, uneventful, and done better elsewhere
- A few aspects that shine amidst an otherwise mediocre experience
- Worth playing but not revolutionary or innovative
- A very good game with original ideas but a few technical hitches or aspects that don’t work as well
- A fantastic game that rarely falters
- The best of the genre that will be looked back on as iconic for years to come
The majority of reviews that The Games Cabin publishes are written utilizing game codes that have been provided by the publisher. This does not impact the score the game will receive in any way and is instead judged on the writer’s experience within the game. To further this, The Games Cabin takes no payment from publishers, developers, or their public relations companies in exchange for reviews.
