How We Score Our Reviews

The scores that OK Games provides to games try to accurately represent the quality of the game. All scores we give are representative of the total sum of the game. They take into account everything from gameplay to audio, and the visuals to controls.


The cream of the crop

Games who earn scores from 7 to 10 are titles that have proved themselves to be well built, enjoyable and perfectly suited for their audiences. Games are rarely perfect, but these games often hold something special. The 10th point on our review scale will be reserved for games that we believe have come as close to perfect as possible. Scores of 10 will not be given lightly and, if a game receives one, means we have absolutely no reservation suggesting that all should play it.

10 – represents games that are not only close to perfect, but are also revolutionary in some form or fashion. Their gameplay, content and graphics should all be as close to flawless as possible.

9 – represents games that are virtually flawless. They will be held back from a 10 by the limited revolutionary scope of design or gameplay features.

8 – represents games that only have a couple of minor issues with either their gameplay, setting or quality. Overall these issues will not greatly impact the experience the game delivers.

7 – represents games that will have issues with either their gameplay, setting or quality. The issues can occasionally be noticeable and may impact the player’s ability to fully enjoy the game.
