Mission Statement

So, what is ReviewHaven, anyway?

The easiest description is that it’s a video game review site built by someone who just loves games.

I don’t believe in using a numbered score system as I feel that they detract from what the review is really for – giving the user a description of what to expect within the title, and whether or not they might derive enjoyment out of said title.

A numbered score has a tendency to destroy that, as most people end up looking at the score and making a snap judgment on the game before even reading the review.

What good is that? How does that help the user in the end? What even is a 7.2/10? What makes it worse than a 7.5 or better than a 7.1? It often feels arbitrary.

Sure, that reviewer gave Metal Gear Solid 4 a 10/10 or a 5/5 – but why did they give it that score? That’s what I try to get across in my reviews – why the game should, or shouldn’t be played.

Therefore, you won’t be seeing any numbered scores on any reviews around these parts.

That said, there are ratings – which you can read about here: Our Ratings

I hope you enjoy your time here, and I especially hope you enjoy reading our reviews!
