Scoring systems[edit]

Original scale[edit]

The original idea for review scores on Attack of the Fanboy was to do away with numerical ratings and instead score games with an emotional score of "Loved, Liked, Meh, Disliked, and Hated. The score was arrived at by judging all aspects of it, including traditional metrics like graphics, gameplay, fun-factor, performance, and others.

Current Scale[edit]

Attack of the Fanboy currently employs a dual-scale for reviews, where critics on the site score the game with both a objective numerical score on a five star scale and a subjective emotional score. Games can also be given a review score of "in-progress."
