Game Reviewer Wanted


ENTERPRISE
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello EHW,

 

We are looking to branch out into game reviews. This has been on the agenda for some time, but we feel it is now time to move forward with this. We are looking for applicants who feel they have a flare, dedication and attention to detail as well as a love for gaming.  Prior experience is not necessary. 

 

The position

We will have access to games across several platforms, Xbox, PlayStation and PC.  So, if you own any of these then you are in the right place.  For those who would like to carry out game reviews on PC, there are a couple additional stipulations that will be covered below.
 

The successful applicant would be expected to be unbiased and cover the following in each review.
 

  • Game Overview (What is it, what it is about & intended audience).
  • Gameplay (Mechanics, Game Engine used, Graphics & Audio Fidelity).
  • Game Screenshots.
  • In- game video.
  • Any let-downs and improvements that could be made to make the game better.
  • Game Performance Metrics (Benchmarks). This realistically this can only be done vie the PC platforms.


**Position Notes**

 

*If the successful applicant is going to be a PC based reviewer, they would need to have a PC capable of running said titles at 50-60FPS on at least the high settings in order to better showcase the game featured, so depending on your system, not all games will be available to you if you cannot meet the requirements of more demanding titles*

*All reviews are showcased on our Review Site and promoted over our Social Media outlets as standard.  

*All articles are written via our review platform based on Wordpress.

 

Benefits

This is an unpaid position, however there are some perks to the job
 

  • You get to keep the game you review and where possible you will get a choice of game/can request titles (However this may not always be possible)
  • You will get a free lifetime premium membership on the forums. Perk list can be read HERE.
  • You have a chance to show off your reviewing prowess and develop your skills moving forward.  
  • Plus additional perks as they become available. 

 

How to apply 

Simple, If you feel you would be good for the position, please send me a message and let me know why you feel you would be a good fit. Feel free to send on any previous work you may have done for article writing of any context, however no prior experience is necessary.

Good luck !

How often do you want a game reviewer to put out reviews? I'd be down to write an occasional review especially if it's for a game I'm already playing but I wouldn't want to do it all the time. 

 

I bet a lot of people here would enjoy writing a review once in a while for games they care about. Have you thought about establishing a general format for game reviews and allowing anyone to submit them? I think that would potentially work well here.

Generally speaking we are looking for individuals who are happy to do it from time to time or all the time (depending on what is made available to us). So yeah we are flexible on that. The titles we will get would vary a fair bit. So we are talking AAA to your smaller indie games etc.  

 

I have a general format so far as what we would want to be covered in each review, so that everyone has the same hymn sheet to sign off of so to speak.

I would be interested but not convinced my hardware would be up to task. 

With your rig, it would depend on the title mostly. So that does not necessarily count you out. The latest AAA games may prove to be an issue but other game titles/indie titles are sometime far less demanding.

Oh interesting. Are you being sponsored or something? What do you mean by "have access to? 

Not sponsored. However as a team we are getting game keys...but no time to make use of them in a productive way (Reviews). Currently we are sent them at random but we *should* also be able to make title requests as well.
