At Always Nintendo, we strive to review the best (and the worst) games that are offered on Nintendo’s portable and home consoles! We score our games based on: Enjoyment Did we have fun while playing it? Was the gameplay tedious and repetitive? This is what gets summed up in the enjoyment category! Controls Clunky Controls are definitely a bummer. Smooth Controls are great to have! Challenge At Always Nintendo, we enjoy games that offer a challenge, but games that go overboard with the difficulty, or games that are too easy shouldn’t expect to get a great score here… Replayability Replayability shows that a game has tons of fun and unique content to bring to the table! It’s definitely something that we keep an eye out for in our reviews! Game Design & Mechanics At Always Nintendo, we love to see new and fresh game design! This will definitely play into how we score our reviews! Visuals/Cinematics Although graphics in games that we review don’t have to be high-detailed 3D models, we DO like to see some polish in the games. A game that’s visually appealing makes itself THAT much easier to review! Sound & Music Finally, Sound & Music! Great music and ambient sound can make a game more immersive (and in some cases even makes the gamer come back for more). If music in a game is ugly, don’t expect a great score here… Always Nintendo’s reviews are based off of these gameplay elements because they can either make a player’s experience with the game completely amazing, or absolutely terrible! Have an issue with a score that we’ve given a game? No problem! Just send an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can do a second opinion review!
