Created in 2016 by student Adam Beddall, Project PC is a news outlet for unbiased PC gaming news, reviews and guides.
Currently the editorial staff consists of one author (who also maintains the website), but over time you may see other authors post articles.
Great question random reader!
On the home page you should see the latest gaming news articles and reviews we have posted. Just below these you will find modding guides and the archive, which holds older articles. On every page are navigation links to PC game release dates, in-game screenshots and our early access stars. Included in the footer are links to our support pages.
You should visit back regularly to find new articles and interesting discussions!
We prefer to keep our review guide small and effective. You should find a breakdown of the review score underneath each review.
We score games out of 10 or 15 per the below criteria and then calculate that number as a percentage:
|Story||Strong exciting plot? Good controlled player progression? Interesting characters? Exciting player choices/decisions? All games generally feature a plot or player progression.||Out of 15|
|Gameplay||Fun mechanics? Easy controls? Well laid out UI? Does it feel right? All games should be enjoyable with fun gameplay mechanics and controls.||Out of 15|
|Graphics/Artwork||Exciting unique artwork? Detailed graphics that fit its genre and setting?||Out of 10|
|Value||Does it hit the pound to hour ratio? DLC/micro-transactions/expansion packs? Pre-order bonuses?||Out of 10|
|Replayability||One play through or multiple? Are side-quests/missions/puzzles interesting and fun?||Out of 10|
|Atmosphere||Always immersive? Are the settings with rich and filled with lore or great locations? Is the atmosphere special?||Out of 10|
|Soundtrack||Good, varied and well composed music? Are the ambience sounds immersive or fitting? How good are the item/weapon/interaction noises?||Out of 10|
|Performance||Is the game optimised? High minimum/recommended specifications? Are there lots of display options for performance? Reports of exclusive optimisation and settings?||Out of 10|
|That Special Something||Is the game innovative in any way? Will this game revolutionise the genre or gaming in general? Does it feature any uniqueness?||Out of 10|
Not every game fits the above criteria. For example, early access games. These games will be scored with one of these emblems; Early Access Star, Recommended and Avoid.
Below are the retrospective emblems:
