Measuring System

Item Level Gaming is a publication that publishes reviews for all things video game-related. This includes games, accessories, hardware, and other products that may interest its readers. To provide a comprehensive review, the site uses an overall score measuring system.

The overall score, ranging from 0-5 stars, is determined without any personal bias or opinion. It is solely based on the reality of the product at the time of publication. A game or a products’ overall score gets calculated based on 3-6 subcategories. These subcategories are unique to each game or product being reviewed and are chosen by the critic doing the review in question. This is to remain objective to the type of game or product in question.

Review Samples & Other Information

Item Level Gaming receives review samples from video game publishers, PR companies, and other parties within the industry. However, we do not accept products with conditions, stipulations, or expectations attached to them. The reviewers keep the products beyond the initial review period to keep up with the many updates and online patches and fixes that a product may receive over the course of its life.

Item Level Gaming does not profit from the sale of video games.
