PC and other console games are great fun and can provide you with hours of entertainment, but when they first hit the shelves, they are definitely not cheap. Sure, you can jump right in and spend $50 or $60 on a new game that you like the look of, but what if it does not meet your high expectations? Well, it means that you have wasted your hard-earned money, which is something that could have been totally avoided had you just spent the time reading some game reviews first – if only you had come across our website. Oh well, there is no point crying over spilled milk, you have found us now, that is the main thing.
What Do We Do Exactly?
To put it simply, we review all of the biggest and newest games that come out, whether for PlayStation, Xbox, or PC, to help you decide whether you want to go ahead and buy it or not. If you like what you read in our review, then go ahead and buy the game in question. If you do not like what you find in our review, do not buy the game or do some more research elsewhere before you commit to it. For example, if you are thinking about buying Call of Duty Black Ops 3, then read our review of it before you do. It only takes a couple of minutes to read and could save you a lot of annoyance in the long run.
Why Reviews Are Necessary
We always tell people to read game reviews before purchasing an expensive game (they keep getting more and more expensive) and while many listen to us, we are sure that there are plenty who ignore our words of wisdom and just go and buy a game without knowing much about it. Then, a couple of days later they are telling their friends that Stealing the Diamond, or whatever game they bought, is not to their liking. However, just for the record, everybody should like Stealing the Diamond as it is a highly entertaining game.
Below we are going to highlight the key reasons why all games need to read reviews before buying a game.
You Get Valuable Data
If you want to get a better understanding of a game before buying it, you need to read reviews because they will discuss all the valuable information such as the experience, comparisons with other games, the characters in the game, and what the gameplay is like. There are some reviews that tell you how much the game will cost, but we do not include this information because it will vary depending on where you are buying it from. All of the other important information stays the same wherever you are buying it from.
You Can Save Time and Money
Many players do not bother to read reviews, go ahead and buy the game, and then come to a sudden realization that it was not worth it. It is at this moment that they realize that they have just wasted their precious time and hard-earned money. If they had just visited a site like ours and spent a few minutes reading some reviews, they would not have ended up throwing their money down the drain.
You Can Find out the Genre of the Game
There are many different genres of games out there, and it is only natural that there are some genres that you do not like. For example, Don’t Escape 3, as you can guess from the name, is an escape game genre, while Batman: Arkham Knight is an action-adventure game. If you do not like either of these genres, and you go ahead and buy one of these games without reading a review, guess what? You are not going to have a very good gaming experience because you are not going to like either game. So, and we know we keep saying it, but it is really important, read reviews and you will quickly find out the genre of a game that you are interested in buying.
You Can Find out Whether It Is an Easy Game or Not
By taking the time to read a review, you can get a good idea as to whether a game is too hard or too easy. Some of us are hardcore gamers, while others are more casual gamers. Hardcore gamers will be looking for games that are complicated and make them have to think a lot while playing such as Fallout Shelter. On the other hand, casual gamers will just be looking for fun and entertaining games that can help them kill a few hours whenever they have some spare time.
You Can Find out about the Gameplay
By taking the time to read a review you can get a clear idea about the characters in the game as well as how to play it. Games obviously all have different gameplay in order to ensure that players do not get bored, so a good review will tackle the gameplay of the game that is under review.
Some Things to Consider When Reading Game Reviews
Below are some things that you should take into consideration when you are reading game reviews.
Read multiple reviews: There will be game review sites out there that will tell you that their reviews are the only ones worth reading, but they are not telling you this for your own benefit, they are telling you it because they do not want you to use other websites. We are not that type of site, we want what is best for our readers, so we recommend you read a number of different reviews before making your final decision. Have a set of questions that you want to be answered about a game, and only buy the game when you have satisfactory answers to your questions.
Pay attention to the good and bad points: Some gamers will read a review and only pay attention to the good points, but if you are going to do this then you might as well not bother reading any reviews. If you find out the good and bad points of a game, you will be able to weigh them up and decide whether it is worth buying or not.
Simple language is important: Sometimes you will come across a review that has complicated language and you will get confused. If you come across a review that you do not understand, simply ignore it and go and find another one, of which there are plenty. You will not have that problem with us as we make sure that all our reviews on this site are simple to understand.
Why You Can Trust Us
Before we start to write about a game that we are reviewing, we will spend time getting to know that game by playing it for a considerable length of time. When we are playing, we will pay close attention to every detail and will note down everything that we think is important so that we can add it to our review. There are many review sites out there who just reword other site’s reviews, but we guarantee that this is not what we do.
Another reason why you can trust us is that we will always be honest with you. We are not being paid to promote these games, like some sites are, so we have no issues when it comes to telling our readers the good and bad points. If we say that something is good, it is because we truly believe it is and not because someone is paying us to speak good words about their game.
