[iF THIS IS IN THE WRONG FORUM, KINDLY MOVE IT TO DYOM: MISSIONS PLEASE]

 

DYOM WRITTEN REVIEWS

As you may already know, I am Chips237; DYOM reviewer, player and ex-designer since November of 2012.

I created this topic mainly for one reason: reviews.

As you may already know, there is an existing DYOM Reviews topic by AznKei, but that has been long inactive and only a few people still review it, so I have decided to create one myself.

Here is how my rating system works:

e9d5d95f_o.png

Each star represents the criteria the mission achieved a good score in. At least the "good" criteria must be achieved to gain a star (in the "Length" and "Difficulty" criteria, at least Hard/Easy and Decent have to be achieved).

This is the criteria: (huge credits to AznKei)

Writing

Focused on the mission dialogues/instructions.

Could be Better>Decent>Good>Very Good>Excellent

Presentation

Focused on the mission visual/storyline quality.

Could be Better>Decent>Good>Very Good>Excellent

Length

Focused on the time the player spends on the mission.

Long>Decent>Excellent<Decent<Short

Difficulty

Focused on the difficulty of the mission.

Too hard>Hard>Medium<Easy<Too easy

Variety

Focused on the amount and uniqueness of contents on the mission.

Could be Better>Decent>Good>Very Good>Excellent

Writing [/]

Good

Noticeable mistakes in the missions, but good enough to be followed.

Presentation [/]

Very Good

Really nice work in the cutscenes, the story was unexpected but good.

Length [/]

Very Good

Mission time is around 6-7 minutes in some missions, depending in your skill.

Difficulty [X]

Could be Better

The intro was too hard. The succeeding missions were okay, but still hard sometimes.

Variety [X]

Decent

Same use for a lot of animations, vehicles and actors; but not too much.

No offense, but i think the old review system is much better. It's very detailed, explains everything, gives you reasons and things to improve plus rating. I prefer the old one. To me, this look like playing with stars. I suggest you to keep everything from old system with colors and stuff and add your star rating.

I agree with him, usually they used to put a rating in the mission and reviewed the whole sections writing like an entire description of it. I'm not saying this method is awful, but it can be more specific and descriptive.

This isn't a copy of AznKei's rating system. If I add everything from her/his system, I would have to ask for permission which is likely not be given. I can add the reasons why I gave those stars, but you know someone is going to be pissed off again.

That is, Target13

 

 

Edited main topic and added reasons.

No, a review is gonna consist more than that, You should point out the good stuff, bad stuff, make them more detailed on which one you're talking about, and make advice on how to make it better.

Yes that's what i mean. Don't worry, you won't be killed because of copyright and T13 won't touch you. You're doing a good thing, making review system alive and bringing new reviewers up. I suggest everything to be like it used to be (Reasons, colors, details, feedback, opinions, spoilers etc..) plus your stars rating. Review is not review without those things as i said IMO.

Fine, fine. I'll implement all these things in my review for "The Thunder Hawks."

Sorry for double posting. Anyways, I reviewed the first mission of "The Thunder Hawks".

This review contains spoilers. Do not read if you don't want to be spoiled.

b421abd0_o.png

Writing [/]

Very Good

Amazing writing. Basically since this is focused on bikers, a few slang words are found. Almost no spelling mistakes except for the word "explode" misspelled twice. Clear instructions.

Presentation [/]

Very Good

Excellent cutscenes and animations are right in time. As this is a biker mission pack, most cutscenes involve bikes, shooting and many other stuff.

Length [/]

Good

Mission time is around 5 to 6 minutes, depending on your skill. This time is only impacted by the shootout with the Vietnamese gang (Da Nang Triads) and also during the drive to the deal site and back.

Difficulty [/]

Medium

The shootout can be a challenge, with only limited ammo and stuck in one place without getting shot. The other parts of the mission were easy, though.

Variety [X]

Could be Better

A biker mission pack seems overused, also; it's hard to tell the bikers apart as they almost look the same as each other. The weapons weren't varied, too.

Very Thanks for your Review and liked it. yes i know there are only 3 type of biker ped models but only 2 of them are used as main characters in story, the other 1 is used as their soldiers of they Club. and also yes you are right, i'll use weapons like sawn offs and AK's for them.

I will update this post once I finish my review of "Left Alone" by DragonWarrior.

Played and rated the first three missions of "Left Alone".

Again, this review contains spoilers.

 

b421abd0_o.png

Writing [X]

Decent

Amazing writing at the first mission, but in the preceding missions grammar went downfall. A lot of mistakes in the next two missions. I hope this would improve.

Presentation [/]

Excellent

Amazing story and cutscenes. The MP name implies it as being apocalyptic, but it is entirely something else. Good work by the designer here. Also, the cutscenes and animations were very well timed.

Length [/]

Decent

Mission time is around 4 to 5 minutes, depending on your skill. The boat race and the shooting contributes to the time.

Difficulty [/]

Hard

This MP is easy in the first mission, but became instantly hard in the preceding ones. You need to be fast, as the next missions involve shooting and stealth.

Variety [/]

Very Good

This is a good concept. Revenge is overused though, but still a good use of actors, vehicles and animations.

No need to. Chips already started another one, you better join him, or if you have to suggest something about his system do it.
