Review of gaming rating sites GameDev

Every year the video game market is filled up with dozens and even hundreds of new projects, and that makes it hard for gamers to keep track of all the novelties and to choose what really deserves their attention. Moreover, a lot of games, especially the console versions, are available for sale, so before you buy them, you’ll want to get the reviews from experts and other gamers.

This situation has led to the emergence of rating sites for games, where each gamer can find an objective assessment of each project or share their own impressions of the gameplay. Let’s consider a few resources that are most trusted among players.




To form the main game rating the site uses its own patented Metascore technology, which collects together the opinions of the most respected critics and uses them to form a numeric score on a 100-point scale. Visitors can also rate each project on their own, and Metacritic has a separate user rating system for this purpose.

Due to such a versatile approach, a gamer gets the most complete and objective assessment of the game and can make a decision on its purchase.


By the way, the site is already connected to Amazon, so you can make a purchase in just a few clicks.

In addition, Metacritic publishes ratings, reviews, trailers and project announcements for different platforms, as well as compiles game tops in different categories, such as “Game of the Year”, “Top Games by Genre” and others, which makes it much easier to find interesting new titles.

Rating game sites




Is a video game review aggregator that collects review data from a multitude of online publications, blogs, and channels, bringing them together on one user-friendly platform. The portal helps gamers make informed decisions about purchasing games by providing them with a transparent and objective assessment of the projects.

OpenCritic’s peculiarity is that it provides the most up-to-date and complete information by using innovative technologies. The service’s search bots scan authoritative resources every 10-25 minutes, extract important metadata from them and place them on their site.

OpenCritic also has a handy game release calendar, which helps you keep track of new releases and add them to your favorites list, if necessary.




A popular portal with reviews for a variety of game projects – from small, to AAA class. In addition, reviews, guides, game industry news, and moderator reviews are published here on a regular basis.

Each game is assigned a rating, and all the features of gameplay users can discuss on an internal forum, so that one has the opportunity to get the most honest and objective assessment.




Another popular portal dedicated to the video game universe. Here the user can find the latest gaming news, which is updated daily, articles, guides, trailers and much more. The rating system here is quite subjective and is set by the site administration based on the opinions of critics and their own preferences, and the users can express their opinion only in comments, and in the evaluation process does not participate in any way.


Nevertheless, it is worth adding that before putting a certain number of points, the editors describe in detail the gameplay, graphics and features of passing each game, so the established rating looks quite reasonable, and in most cases, and it really can be relied on.

Destructoid ranks the game projects on a 10-point scale, based on its own scoring system that takes into account many factors. In addition, the site provides a forum where players can share their personal opinions with each other.





A relatively young service, which appeared on the market only in 2020, but has already earned the trust of the world community and was nominated for the MCV Develop Awards 2022. Here gamers will find all the relevant information about video games – news, articles, reviews and guides. But in addition to this the administration of the site has implemented its own rating system.

However, at the moment it reflects subjective, though justified, opinion of the administration, and the users are not allowed to vote.
