Alright, I decieded to do this after seeing Yoda's review of my game.. It was one paragraph long and said NOTHING about the game.
Thats NOT what a review should be like.
If you can't type long things, then DONT REVIEW. A review a few words long is not a review.
How should you review a game you ask? Well..
Split up the review!
This should be obious, but talk about whats good (and in some cases what's bad), dont just say "Th33 GraPh1(5 w3r3 P00p!!11!!", what is bad about them? Is it the style? No shading? No animation? And what is good about them?
This part can be quite short. Don't just say... THE SOUND FX DIDNT WORK LIKE THE GAME!!1! (i've seen someone write that.. i aint saying who or where) Did the sound FX suit what they were meant to do? Ie, you can't have a butch guy get hit and have a long SCREAM, can you? Or a HUGE gun which sounds like a water pistol?
Did the music suit? Did it fit in with the pase of the game? IS IT FROM GFACTORY?!
Alright, I admit, my games have crud Title screens, I admit.
How easy is it to get around the menu? Does it look good?
Now here you can talk about the bugs and stuff the game has, Ie, my Knights game used the "basic" platform movement, so you can stick in the wall.. maybe a shoot em up game you can't fire for some reason? Enemys kill you instantly when their not meant to?
Ooo.. easy, how long did the game last? Did you even bother finishing it?
Now, YES i do sometimes go back to click games to play them again, is the game addictive? Or is it that bad that you want to delete it?
Sum up what you think of the game, what could be improved? And such like..
Hopefully people will read this and write PROPER reviews from now on.
This should help, I hope.
