  Review Score Definitions  

When reading or writing a review for/from RPGamer, use this scoring chart to evaluate the context of each numerical score. If you should find any error in the presentation of the text of a review as it relates to the number scores the review gives, please report them as you find them.

1
Any game that receives an overall score of '1' should be considered extremely poor in almost all regards. Any individual item score that garners a '1' represents an aspect of the game that is very badly presented or otherwise shows an obvious lack of effort on the part of the developers.

2
Any game that receives an overall score of '2' should be considered moderately bad in many ways. Any individual item score that is given a '2' represents an aspect of the game that is not up to par with expectations or otherwise shows that aspect to be difinably worse than the majority of the games contemporary competition.

3
Any game that receives an overall score of '3' is - by and large - harmlessly average; these games should make up the majority of all games. Any individual item score presented as a '3' defines an aspect of the game that serves its function and is neither extremely bad, nor extremely good; individual item scores of '3' can also be used to define an area in a game that is particularly unmemorable or bland but is of - otherwise - good design.

4
Any game that receives an overall score of '4' should be considered fairly good as compared to most other games. Any individual item score that garners a '4' represents an aspect of the game that is done particularly well or that shows a concentrated amount of effort by the developer.

5
Any game that receives an overall score of '5' should be considered extremely good, and as close to perfect as the reviewer can possibly imagine the game being. Any individual item score that is given a '5' represents an aspect of the game that is fantastic, very memorable, groundbreaking, or is simply so well demonstrated as to help define the entire game through its effort.
