Reviews

Extra fields for magrow are required if there is a review - this will help generate an average score for a game.

| versioncomments=
| rating=
| ratingcomments=
| awards=
| awardscomments=
| ratingsystem=
  • version - the version of the game being reviewed - NTSC-J, NTSC-U, PAL (or "NTSC-U (BR)", "PAL (UK)" etc.
  • rating - the value printed in the magazine. If it is 83%, enter "83". If it is 5/10, enter 5. If it is "B+", enter b+ - the template should do the calculations for you.
  • awards - any special awards given by the magazine. List in Template:AwardImage.
  • ratingsystem - override the default rating system, as defined in magazine pages. You should only have to use this if the magazine is doing something clever. Typical values are "1-10", "0-100", "A-F" etc.
  • the comments fields are for relaying extra information, e.g. if the version is a prototype, the rating was misprinted, or if something wacky happened.
