    Just add platforms as reviews roll in, no need to clutter the OP up with 30 platforms when there is reviews for like, 4 ><

    What about a review that doesn't include the multiplayer portion of the game if there's one?

    I for one don't like going into multiplayer modes, and also this portion of the game is subject to change based on the user experience.

    That's the only thing that stopped me from reviewing games back in 2007.

    In the review formula, by story and multiplayer, I mentioned "if it has one". You can only write about these elements if they are present.If not, simply leave em out.

    Ideally though, IF the game does have one...at least a small mention of your initial impressions should be there imo.

    I don't see anything wrong with acknowledging it has MP, but not playing it ie if the MP is dead or no interest. Just make it clear that it hasn't influenced the review

    Agreed.

    I think I need to clear some of these things up in the OP before we go live.

    Spyrde did an amazing job with those graphics. They look gorgeous and fit into the forum very well.

    I agree. Picking the final set is going to be damn hard.

    Question, in the review template, do you think graphics & presentation should be above gameplay?

    Like you talk about how nice it all looks and stuff before getting into the nitty gritty.

    Just a thought

    Yeah I thought that the order could use some adjustment when I wrote it up, just forgot. I'll do that.

    No, I wanted to.It looked unnatural whenever I looked at it. I've put graphics and sound before gameplay and controls.

    Sweet, seems better since I'm sure the majority of review content for most of these reviews will be in the Gameplay section

    So this template:



    Is that the template everyone should use? Meaning that they shouldn't be changing the fonts, italics, colors? Is there an image size limit or requirement? If so, should they be inline? You mention consistency, which is important to me like it is you, so I was just curious if every review will be consistent in the physical layout, making it easier to read for everyone.

    Yeah, I'm going to submit the first review as a demo to show the font styles and such. I haven't really thought about images...What do people think?

    I think the OP would look better with images instead of text for each platform. Like, instead of having the Sony banner then Playstation 3, Vita, etc. in text you'd have a thin image the same width as the header, but keep them simple so future platforms can be easily added by anyone
