Review Policy

Rock Paper Shotgun publishes regular reviews of PC games and hardware. These reviews can be text or video, and appear on our website and YouTube channel respectively.

Our reviews are written to deliver criticism, analysis and information to help inform you of the writer’s professional opinion about a game. These reviews are subjective; although the content of reviews is discussed with the Editor-in-Chief before publication, the final judgement remains the author’s own.

Games and other products are selected for review on the basis of their relevance and interest to the Rock Paper Shotgun audience; quality; notability or content.

Reviewers are expected to spend enough time with each game to be able to give a considered opinion based on their comprehensive knowledge of the game. Due to the vast number of ways in which games can differ, this is not a pre-defined number of plays or hours of playing.
