Nintendo Reviews Game Scores
Contains how we come up
with the overall score and
the five categories.
Besides reviewing Nintendo games, the most fun is seeing how good or bad they turn out to be! We score video games equally
on five levels: Sound, Control, Graphics, Replay and Design! The link above explains more. Here we have compiled scores for
many games, even those we don't have a review for! Below we have a quick overview of our grading scale.
NOTE: If you're wondering why there's so little scores for older systems, it's because our company started in 2003. There are no reviews for Nintendo
systems before Game Boy Advance and Nintendo Gamecube because we started in 2003. We provide scores based on what we would have scored if we
had a review for the game. Because we focus on the future, we will not be spending time on reviewing old games, but we at the least score them for you.
NEW: Nintendo promises a download service for older Nintendo games which means that it is possible that we may add more scores to those
lists, and a slight possibility of some reviews for those games. We'll have to see what the new Nintendo systems has for us.

NOTE: There is currently only one game
under this category. This means that when
considering the best games for that system,
please do not consider this completely. We do
believe that Ocarina of Time is better than
Metroid Prime on GCN,
HOWEVER that is
somewhat biased considering it was a
previously released with no changes, except
for resolution and progressive scan.
Therefore, the best games for GCN are the
two that are tied for first place, which is
Metroid Prime and Star Wars: Rogue
Squadron 2: Rogue Leader.
Also note that Super Mario World and
Donkey Kong Country are under their
regular categories, because although they are
based on remakes, there are enough
differences to place them with other games for
their platfrom.
