Here at TruePCGaming, we present our reviews differently than other media outlets. While reviews of any kind are the subjective opinions of one person, we believe the current scoring system used by the video game industry does not accurately reflect the true value of a game. TruePCGaming will base its “score” on one simple premise: Is the game worth your money. With the recent trend of big development studios increasing their PC price point to $59.99, the current US economic climate, along with the conversion rates in Europe and Australia, it is as important as ever to get the best bang for your buck.
In the video gaming world, PC games are simply a different animal compared to its console counterparts. We will dig deep to offer technical analysis of how the game plays and feels on the PC. In our Technical Summary section, TruePCGaming will offer information specifically geared towards PC gamers.
The following is a list of areas each review will present:
Widescreen Support – Was widescreen support properly implemented. We also mention FOV if deemed necessary.
5.1 Audio Support – Was proper 5.1 surround sound support available.
Bugs/Crashes Encountered – What, if any, bugs or crashes the reviewer experienced.
Control Scheme – Mouse/Keyboard or Gamepad
DRM – The type of DRM used.
System Specs – The systems components used by the reviewer to play the game. Video, RAM, CPU, Driver Version.
Game Acquisition Method – We will always let you know how we received our games whether it be a review copy or purchased by a member of TPG.
Saved Game Location – Backing up your data is important and many developers use different folders. TPG will let you know where exactly your stored saved game files are located.
