About Our Review Scores

abacus for review scores

What’s your review scale?
We operate on an “out of 10” system with .5 decimals for “8.5” etc, just so that we can say that something we reviewed is close to the higher score, but not quite close enough. Don’t worry, we won’t ever publish an 8.9 or something stupid like that.

Here’s the way we work it out:

1. The absolute worst
2. Awful
3. Not good
4. Below average
5. Average
6. Alright
7. Good
8. Great
9. Amazing
10. Almost perfect

Nothing’s perfect.

What if I am interested in writing for you and want to include a score?
Send along less than thirty words with your thoughts and score at the bottom of your submission. Find out more on our write for us page.

Do you do affiliate marketing?
Yes, but only through Amazon. We earn a small percentage of money if you buy a product through an Amazon link you use on one of our reviews/articles. That being said, all reviews remain impartial, so whether the next big game/album/book gets a 1 or a 10, we will include a link.

Album reviews
Book reviews
Game reviews

We also try to include whether we are reviewing something provided by the publisher/PR people. However, our editor is a useless cretin, so if you don’t see it mentioned, just assume that it’s a review copy.

What if I disagree with the score a reviewer gives?
Erm, well, tough. It’s their opinion. Any hateful feedback won’t be tolerated. It’s as simple as that.
