Here at Geekisphere we pride ourselves on bringing the most objective reviews as humanly possible.
That’s what John Heatz, Geekisphere founder, is always trying to get, with his most common phrase:
The fact that you like something doesn’t mean it is good. If you don’t like it, doesn’t mean it is bad either.
In order to accomplish this goal, our reviews go through a filter before getting published. Every review submitted by the team gets checked for quality by any of our senior staff. What do they check? Well…
Geekisphere reviews consist of some basic (and minimum) requirements that you’ll notice as you browse through our reviews’ catalog. These include:
- Product description
- Specs (for PC games)
- Cinematography (for movies, TV shows)
- Final Verdict
What do we cover on each one of these?
Most of these are self-explanatory; however, it may be a good idea to go through them to get a better understanding about each category.
We’ll try to let you know what the product is all about. Throughout our story coverage we may have some spoilers; however, we’ll let you decide whether you want to check them or not by using a “spoiler” tag that will hide them until you click on them. Like this:
This is a key part for movies and TV. The visuals used to get the viewer to a specific moment in time or location is important. We will check for camera angles, movements, vibration. We check for the image’s quality. Also, make sure the focus is where it should be.
What about scores?
We got you covered with scores! We use a base 10 scoring procedure where 1 is really bad and 10 is perfect. The scores are done on a per-category basis so you’ll see each of the before-mentioned categories being scored.
As far as the final score goes, that’s measured automatically based on the category scores.
Pros & Cons
We do give you some short ideas about what’s good and bad (based on the writer’s judgement) with a short list of pros and cons at the end. These are all up to you to decide whether you agree with them or not.
