Since August 2010 Nukezilla has used the Five Star scale for reviews. The more stars a game gets, the better the reviewer thinks it is, up to a maximum of five stars. Simple.
As expected / average:
Before August 2010 the site used a 0 to -10 scale (continuing the heritage of the site’s old name; Negative Gamer). Those scores translate to the following descriptions:
This game is perfect. There is not a single blemish on it. It does everything you want it to do and does it perfectly. If this game was a cake, you would never once get tired of eating it, or wish it was a different flavour.
The game’s only problems are those of preference. The issues found in the game are manageable, trivial and few. You would have to try hard to find problems here.
The game is mostly perfect, however a few minor issues do arise. Although these issues exist, they do little to damage the game.
The game has fewer issues than expected, but is held back by some unfortunate problems which arise every now and again. Nothing too bad, but definitely noticeable.
Overall the game does a little more than expected. Problems which are present will hinder your enjoyment from time to time.
The game has about as many problems as you would expect the game to have. It neither impresses or depresses the player (or it does both in balance). It is average.
This game could have been good, if it wasn’t for all the niggling little issues. The problems are either persistent and small or few and large, either way they are impossible to ignore.
Even an optimist would struggle to get away from the issues this game has. The problems are clear, needless and annoying. Although you can finish the game, you will wish you hadn’t.
The problems are ever present and make you want to stop playing. The only fun you have is by accident and even then it’s a rare occurrence. Rent at best, but only if you really have to.
The list of problems with the game is near endless. The game fails in nearly every way possible.
The game is crap, there is no way to get around the fact. The problems found are game-breaking and take all the fun out of the game. Playing this game will make you hate all videogames.
