At One Hit Pixel we aim to publish our reviews as soon as we can once they are up to the standards we set. A key difference between our reviews and the majority is that we do not use the traditional and widely used 1-10 scale. Instead we opt for a graded scale to attempt to avoid the overuse of the top end of the scale. By stating a ‘C’ rated game as average, it is in keeping with the same standards that everyone follows whilst in education – and hopefully is more appropriate to the ‘scoring’ of games. It therefore also means that the top mark of ‘A+’ is not equal to a ‘perfect’ game – just one that came very close.

We use a graded review scale as we feel it provides a more evenly spread criteria – it’s also to help maintain a sense of perspective from writers and readers alike as to their feelings towards a game rather than assign it a numeration score. Below you can see the worded equivalent for each grade.
- A+ = Unmissable
- A = Exceptional
- A- = Excellent
- B+ = Very Good
- B = Good
- B- = Quite Good
- C+ = Just above average
- C = Average
- C- = Just below average
- D+ = Poor
- D = Bad
- D- = Very Bad
- E = Abysmal
- F = Unplayable
