User Review Guidelines

The GameAgent Blog

The intent of the User Review portion of the GameAgent Blog is to provide gamer feedback on Mac games.  Old, new, independent or studio-developed, the only requirement is that it must be a Mac game.  We’ll do our best not to censor as long as you do your best to write like your momma’ raised you to (you know what we’re saying – no potty mouth).  Reviews used and published on the Blog are eligible for discounts and free games from GameAgent.com.  For every 100 words, users can receive 10% off any Aspyr game of their choice via the GameAgent Store.

If you’re a Mac gamer and you’re ready to review there are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Keep it simple.  The most important thing is to have fun!
  2. Sorry kiddies, you must be 13 years of age or older.
  3. NO SPOILERS.  Remember, no matter how old the game, there are still folks who haven’t played it yet and may be thinking of playing.
  4. The review must be a .doc (word) file.  If you cannot provide a .doc file, then just copy and paste your review in to the body of your email upon submission.
  5. We like screen shots that coincide with reviews but they are not required.  If you choose to provide screen shots they must be a jpeg.  A maximum of 3 screen shots can be used.
  6. Reviews will be selected at Aspyr’s discretion as our featured review, and as thanks you’ll get a discount or a free Aspyr game of your choice from GameAgent.comOnly reviews selected are eligible for discounts or a free game.
  7. We’re not going to post anything that’ll get us sued ;-)

You’ve played, you’ve reviewed, you’ve written and you’re ready to submit, so now what?

  1. Send your review to gameagent@aspyr.com
  2. Write “Review submission for [NAME OF GAME]” in the subject line.
  3. Make sure to include your real name and a valid email address to contact you at.  If you do not want to use your real name in the review, then provide a nickname that you prefer.
  4. Give the game a “Star Rating.”  You can rate each game in half incriments up to 5.
  5. Last but not least, send a photo of yourself so we can put a face to the name!  If you don’t want to provide a real photo, send us your Avatar!

That’s it!  So please, go have fun as it will only help your fellow Mac Gamer.

Reviews are subject to editing to fit within the format of our Blog system and will be used at Aspyr’s discretion.  Should you want to revoke your submission after it has been submitted to us before publication of the entry, simply send an email to gameagent@aspyr.com with your request and we will immediately pull your submission from review.
