Mini Review Ratings

I need a rating system for my mini reviews. So here goes.

Everyone knows that percentages are rubbish, because you can’t easily hold yourself to using the full range. For the same reason 1-10 scales don’t work, they just avoid the unnecessary precision. So I thought I’d split it by sentiment. (I may come up with some more amusing graphics at some point.)

This page will also automagically build up into a review index. Now all I need to do is write some reviews.

This game is awful. The more you play it, the more you will hate it. In order to review this, I played the whole way through and I almost wish I hadn’t bothered.


This game is pretty good. Everyone should play it through at least once.

A classic game that I play over and over again. If you haven’t played this through at least once then shame on you.

Well, I’m not really getting around to reviewing these games (I’m trying to play though games I haven’t played before, which kind of automatically excludes these). So here’s a short list off the top of my head...

  • Alex Kidd in Miracle World
  • Castle of Illusion
  • Krusty’s Fun House
  • Land of Illusion
  • Micro Machines
  • Prince of Persia
  • Wonder Boy III
