Writing a Videogame Review

Due Date: 6/27

Note: This is an optional assignment that you can complete in partial fulfillment of the A or B contracts.

If you are not familiar with the style and format of game reviews, I suggest that you take a look at the following sites.

Here are a few salient features of video game reviews:

  • review a current game (released this year)
  • indicate the platform on which the game is played (e.g. xBox, PS, iPhone, PC, etc.)
  • describe the game without spoilers
  • consider a range of qualities (graphics and sound, storyline, characters, playability, replay value, etc.)
  • summarize their findings

If you are going to do a review, you will need to have access to, and play, some recent game. That doesn’t require you to lay down $60 for new console game. You can choose a cheap or free phone game instead.

As stated in the syllabus, your review should be a minimum of 1000 words. You should post it to this website in the “game reviews” category.
