Review Score Framework v1.2
Posted by: Sam Tree | 4 March 2017

Here at Glacier Gaming, we strive to offer honest reviews and to score games consistently on both their merits and their flaws. In order to achieve consistency, we all work to the same scoring framework on a scale of 1-10. The score takes a number of factors into account including – but not limited to – graphics, plot (if any), longevity, playability, replayability and much more. Here’s how our scoring system works:


Nintendo Switch UK hands-on
Posted by: Joe Perrin | 26 January 2017

I was one of those lucky enough to win entry to the UK hands-on premiere for the Nintendo Switch. Turning up there, I quickly discovered this was a less exclusive affair than the competition aspect implied, as it drew a large crowd. After waiting some time for the event to open (check-in took longer than anticipated), and walking through a small exhibit of Nintendo’s previous consoles, I got into a room where multiple games were available to try, and you would queue up to have a go – a similar arrangement to what you’d expect at EGX (or as I call it, The EGX Queuing Experience).

New 3DS Review - Part 2 Games
Posted by: Joe Perrin | 15 January 2015

So now that I have my New Nintendo 3DS unboxed and set up, I’m going to do a system transfer from my Nintendo 3DS XL, and I’ll play a few games. Let’s see if there’s any differences worth mentioning.


New 3DS Review - Part 1 Unboxing & Setup

Its boasts of an extra C-Stick and improved processor dedicated to one game I know I won’t have time to play properly weren’t enough to excite me for the console, nor distract me from thoughts such as “here we go again”, “I suppose I should’ve seen this coming given Nintendo’s history” and “Nintendo and Apple seem to have the same guys naming their devices”. (‘New iPad’ anyone?)
