App/Flash reviews are no longer allowed, recently there has been a large influx of low quality app reviews and it has degraded the quality of the section.
Welcome to Game Reviews
So you've come to check out the Game Review forum but noticed one small thing missing - you can't create new threads. How on earth are these members getting official review publication threads when I can't even make a new thread, you ask!?? Here's what you need to know...
Getting your own Review Publication Thread
Only staff and members with the 'Game Reviewer' rank may post threads in this forum. Members that want to get their own review thread published should post their review in the designated sticky thread so it can be checked by a member of staff. All reviews will be checked to ensure they are original work (any copies from other sites will be ignored) and of a decent quality.
The game I want to review already has a thread - now what?
If a game you want to review already has a thread then post your review as a reply to that existing thread - each game will get only 1 thread.
How do I know if my game has already been reviewed?
Instead of looking through all the pages in this forum, you can quickly and easily find out if your game already has a thread by checking here.
How do I make my review a 'decent standard'?
To ensure your review meets some basic quality standards check out this tutorial on review writing here.
Good luck to everybody, and happy reviewing!
Copy and pasting reviews from other websites where the content does not belong to you will make you ineligible for the 'Game Reviewer' badge, we can find you out!
This section is designed for user created reviews and that only.
New features added for Game Reviewers!
Game Reviewers can now post their reviews without going through the sticky. It may say that only Moderators are allowed to post topics in this section but Game Reviewers now have the special privilege to post new topics (Game Reviews) in this section. Game Reviewers can now post without restrictions in this section, this is a very neat feature for those who have earned it. Game reviewers have earned this because they are trusted and known not to plagiarize. This is very useful for those who love writing reviews and do not like waiting!
As of Feb. 2018 we will be allowing members with the game reviewer badge to give their approval for a review. By using our Upvote system a Game Reviewer can upvote a review submission and a staff member will then add it to the section thanks to the badge holders recommendation. Staff will still have final say in this situation and if a user is found to be abusing this system, the review will be deleted and the Game Reviewer will have their badge removed.
Post your own reviews here - If a review is good enough, and if the staff agree with it, it will be published as an official TTG Game Review.
Rules to follow if you want your review made official:
1. Users are permitted to copy only the manufacturers description of the game (synopsis).
2. You must have played the game.
3. All review parameters (gameplay/plot/graphics/controls/etc) must be your own words.
4. Reviews must contain a rating from 1 to 10 - again this must be your own rating.
5. All video games that contain a Story Mode/Campaign mode must have a Plot, if not then your review will be declined. The synopsis is not the plot!
6. You must provide example images/gameplay videos to back up your opinions when you are talking about the Graphics/Art of a game. This is to add more visualization to the review, instead of just having a review that says "Game looks really good".
We are looking to create a wide selection of game reviews - but we want our own, not the reviews of other sites. We would far prefer your own reviews (regardless of size/quality) over that of one which has been copied from another site.
WARNING: All reviews will be checked prior to use - Any official review that is found to be a copy and paste from another website will be deleted. Any user that is found to be stealing reviews from other sites repeatedly will be ignored as a future reviewer. While we will be checking these reviews before making any of them official, one may slip past our radar now and then.IF YOU SEE AN OFFICIAL REVIEW THAT HAS BEEN COPIED FROM ANOTHER SITE THEN PM US WITH THE LINK TO THE ORIGINAL SOURCE AND WE WILL REMOVE IT AS AN OFFICIAL REVIEW.
*Note that this doesn't matter for unofficial reviews posted in this sticky.
Read before making a review :
Check HERE to see if a game has been reviewed before reviewing it, if it has been reviewed then don't post a review on that game.
Save a copy of your review in a notepad in case it gets declined.
You are only allowed to copy the Synopsis.
Browser games are not allowed to be reviewed
Games in an allotted time beta/alpha cannot be reviewed until their full release. Developmental alpha and beta reviews can still be submitted.
You are allowed to review a game that has already been done ONLY if the author has been suspended from the website, the new review must be better than the previous as well. If the user is inactive that does not give you the right to re-review a game.
