Photo Mode Reviews – Coming Soon!
Help us lock in the criteria for our Photo Mode reviews
There are a lot of websites out there doing game reviews, and a lot of sites doing camera reviews, but there are NO sites doing Photo Mode Reviews!
Arcade Geographic will start doing in-game Photo Mode reviews for games released on current gen consoles and recent PC games.
But we need your help!
We need a criteria that we can apply to all Photo Modes that come out. I have scoured camera reviews and camera app reviews for relevant metrics to review against and have added a few of my own. The aim is to have a comprehensive review of the Photo Mode and its features, and an overall rating for the Photo Mode so that people can compare them quickly.
Having a criteria helps even out biases towards a game, and helps come out with a closer comparison even when different people are doing the reviews.
The review will NOT take into account whether the game is good or not – you can get those reviews elsewhere.
Let me know what else we can add, or anything that maybe we should re-think:
