Reviews @

Welcome to the reviews section at Emuparadise. I am the Editor and chief, Magus, and a writer along with my staff of review writers. Here at Emuparadise, we feel that our game reviews are competetive, not just with other emulation sites, but also the top gaming publications like EGM and Gamepro. Every writer expresses his own opinions on the game in the areas of gameplay, graphics, and sound. You will find each review to be thorough, well written, accompanied by several screenshots, and fair to the game's repspective creators. We generally rate games on a scale of 0.0 - 5.0, but you will find some that use a 0.0 - 10.0 scale (which scale will be noted in the review). Take a note that any game shall be rated in comparison to other games of the same platform. If you see a NES game with a 5.0 in graphics, don't be surprised because that rating will be based on the graphical quality of other NES games.

If you would like to write reviews for Emuparadise, please email me at As you can see, we already have several writers, but I am always willing to accept more. If you have good grammar, spelling, gaming experience, and are a fair writer you will definitely be considered, but I can't promise anything. If you do not wish to become a full time writer, you may still send in reviews. Anything is up for review as long as it hasn't already been reviewed by another person. Hardware reviews are very rare, so if you have any old joysticks, controllers, or a console, please write a review for it. Note: Writers on my staff will not be paid. They only receive respect in return for their gaming knowledge. :)
