This is my first review and I will try to define 4 areas and give scores from 0-20 and the grand total sum of 0-100. Since such a large scale demands a few pre-defined value areas, this is it:
0-4 Really awful
21-25 Very Good
Meaning that a medium is about – 55-75 for a decent OK game.
So what are they:
Graphics: Not only DX11 effects, but does the graphics do the job? Is it it ugly, or is it functional, is it downright ugly or perhaps too breathtaking and stealing attention or too many effects to actually benefit game-play?
Sound: How good is the sound, speech, voices, voice actors and musical score. Positional etc.
Game-play/Story: How is the gameplay mechanics. How fun is it to play, and how is the game? Inventive, or giving same ol same ol? Perhaps the game-play is easy but genius? Does the game.play and story make you intrigued to continue playing? Is the story good enough or not?
Controls/Quality: Is it a lousy port? Yes or no, does it support a controller as well as mouse and keyboard interface? Can you bind the keys as you want? Does the game key bindings recognize thumb-buttons and multiple mouse commands? And of course, is the game buggy or well made?
I hope that this will work pretty well and give a fairly good criteria to evaluate a game on.
