What makes a great Game Review

Overview: Begin with a brief overview of the game, including its genre, setting, and general gameplay mechanics.

Storyline: If the game has a storyline, provide a summary of it without giving away any spoilers.

Gameplay: Discuss the mechanics of the game, including its controls, difficulty, and any unique features that set it apart from other games in its genre.

Pros and cons: Summarize the game's strengths and weaknesses, and offer a balanced critique that highlights both.

Personal experience: Share your personal experience with the game and how it impacted your enjoyment of the game.

Conclusion: End the review with a final verdict and recommendation, based on the game's overall quality and value.

Remember, a good game review should be informative, honest, and objective. It should provide readers with a clear understanding of the game, its strengths and weaknesses, and whether or not it is worth playing.

Platform Game News

Platform games have been the most popular games ever since video games were created and many of the early games have remained some of the best.

The first games of this type were very limited as graphical content was hard to portray on the systems of old as their capabilities were very limited but this did not take anything away from the enjoyment of the game play. One of the first platform games we remember was Jet Set Willy which was available on the Toshiba MSX computer which dates back to the early eighties. We absolutely loved this game and it has given us hours of entertainment. Out of all the platform games we have reviewed the best one to date is of course Donkey Kong.

We have a wide selection of game review categories from Adventure game reviews, Basketball game reviews and many more.

This game was based on you controlling Donkey Kong through various levels and jumping over barrels and other dangers as you worked your way to the end of the level. This may not sound that interesting when compared to the games of today but we can tell you this was one of the most fun and entertaining games we have ever played.

Some of the most popular games that we have reviewed are mermaids millions, crazy frog racer and of course a wide variety of Football game reviews.

With all these facts we have decided to list below some of the best and most recent platform games on the market and I hope you like them as much as we do.

2. Rayman Origins
3. Sonic the Hedgehog Unleashed
4. Donkey Kong Country Returns
