Scaling and Review Notes

Personal Hours Played: 240 (Thundergodeneru)

Every game ranked was played, but also scaled based on research, talking to developers & your feedback. The priority with the scale's initial design was to compare similarity on relatively objective features - so it doesn't claim to include reviews of the depth and clarity you'd get at a games journalism site, nor the intensive time played you might get from player reviews on steam. We try to incorporate and link all of that along with a 'review scale' that checks for bugs. See the heatmap and breakdown! Time played noted so you can take any notes with a big grain of salt! I can't get to high level gameplay in 850+ games so I heavily research every game. Over 80 game creators let me interview or survey them! I Hope to go back and refine. Please argue or submit your own scores and reviews to be incorporated with credit into the notes and score numbers.

Scale scoring from scorecard submitted by player reviewer. Once evaluated after a couple hours play and some research, will be adjusted and moved up into the ranking proper.

Review Notes by Thundergodeneru: "This game is a rogue lite like many others, such as Wizard of Legend or Enter the Gungeon. The difference is how much it leans to Chinese cultivation, where it has moves and monsters that would be foreign and interesting to most people who aren't familiar with this trope."

Thundergodeneru: "The mechanics are fairly unique, taking a lot from the Chinese xianxia trope. You age one year when you enter each room, if your lifespan reaches 0 you die with there being many ways to increase your lifespan."

"This is only one mechanic as there are skills and weapons that can be matched into combos, changing their animation and how they work. A main function of this game is how you collect chi, which empowers anything that uses its element and how you can pick cards that synergize and make you much stronger like uncapping your crit rate so you can crit twice in one attack. The main focus is to synergize in this game."

"Playing this game is a blast, especially figuring out how the game works on your own as if does not tell you. The guides are scarce and figuring out a combination and obliterating an enemy with your new-found power is a very enjoyable experience." - Thundergodeneru

Cultivation Story: Reincarnation Review Scale Heatmap

- +

The review scale is judged from -1 to 1 in 10 categories, with 200 possible "points" earned. Steam review positive percentage is worth another 100 points, and a "ten point" pure vibe review number adds extra subjectivity. Converted into points, that's 400 points total. The points aren't used directly in the ranking, though, which averages the three number scores for the final review score listed in the game line above.
