Default Snowfire Games Reviews Page + Formula - 08-12-2011, 12:13 AM

Since my reviews are getting so popular I'm going to make this post. I figured if jedi had one it wouldn't hurt me to have one... ;D I won't be posting links to my reviews yet but here's where you will request your game to be reviewed. Please note that I don't review models.

Also, here's my revewing formula:

First I play the game, to enjoy it. Next I play it a second time, thinking about the technical aspects, being picky, and trying to find things that are wrong with the game such as poor environmental detail. After that I give the 4 categories a score out of ten. The categories are:

Presentation
This involves the GUIs, Tutorials, Cutscenes, and Story
Audio/Video
The graphics, environments and their variety, animation quality, sound effects, music, and voice acting (if any)
Gameplay
The gameplay, is it repetative, is it fun, does it's difficulty progress at the right pace, or is it to complex and horrible
Replay Value
How long is this game going to last you. How hard is it, different difficulty modes, acheivements, easter eggs, and different modes

Than they are scored out of ten (as stated) and decimals are included. Scoring ranges include a word that describes them:

0.0-0.9 Won't even get Reviewed
1.0-1.9 Horrible
2.0-2.9 Poor
3.0-3.9 Bad
4.0-4.9 Iffy
5.0-5.9 50-50
6.0-6.9 Decent
7.0-7.9 Good
8.0-8.9 Great
9.0-9.9 Impressive
10 Masterpiece

(Yes most of these words are ripped from IGNs rating system but I try to review games like IGN would except keeping in mind their alice games)

Than all 4 categorys scores are averaged and I round it off to:

X.0/10
X.25/10
X.5/10
X.75/10

Games I've Reviewed:
(In Order)

Halo: The Generator (Halo In Alice) by Jediaction/Chrome Games
Sky Warrior by zero00
Sky Warrior Returnns by zero00
Flight Simulator by Dj Tech42
Resident Penguin by (who else?) x2495iiii

Hey, do you care if it is a 2 player game instead of just a 1 player game?

Do you review beta versions of games?

I also made a fighting game, Alice Fighters, but it is in version 0.5 at the moment. And it's mostly a 2 player game too.


Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.

I tried that a little. I will do a full review on it soon. As for alice clash. v0.3 sounds a bit to beta, are you sure you don't want me to perfect it? Usually I don't give a second score to a game unless it had a really good patch applied.

I know that Alice Fighters will definitely be very different by the time 1.0 rolls around, so you could review it again then.

Welllllll, AC v0.3 is all it is going to be if I don't decide that makeing AI to be in it (also might tweak damge ratios a bit but thats not enough for a new version), I want to make the AI look like a real player playing but it will take either : Awhile to make a good AI, or Less to make a bad one. But if you play with your friend, I'm pretty sure it won't change the gameplay (probally* will be better, it was made for 2 player).

On another note, review Alice Fighters, I liked that game.


Thanks, I/N.

P.s. My game has no sound, so its nothing when it comes to that.
