Our review policy

Here at Nintendo Village we have a range of people from all sorts of backgrounds reviewing games. It's important to remember that any review is ultimately a reflection of the reviewer's own personal experience with a game, and as no two people are alike, no two reviews will be either.

Despite this we always try to offer as unbiased an opinion as is humanly possible, whilst still maintaining the personality and style that makes each writer unique.

Similarly, while we do receive complementary copies of some games in order to report on them for you, this has no impact whatsoever on our approach to the review, or on how we score it.

Not a complete waste of time, but you probably deserve better.

Nintendo Village Shield

Very occasionally a game will come along that absolutely knocks our socks off. For those rare occasions, we'll award the game both 5 stars and a Nintendo Village shield. If a game gets one of these, you know that it's an absolute masterpiece.
