Terms Of Use

Review Policy

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 will disclaim anything that we feel is warranted with regards to reviews, as well as which platform(s) the review was based on.

Review Grading

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- = Abysmal
  • F = Unplayable
