This is merely a template to show how game reviews should be posted on The GCN. Simply copy all the content within the code tags, and then adjust accordingly.

Note: Ratings can often be quite tricky, considering our way of rating games. However, I'm going to explain that. Now, each half a star is worth 1 on a scale of 10. So, 5 gold stars is a 10/10, 4.5 is 9/10 and so on. There are also two special rating icons that you can use. To simplify it, here's the entire list, as well as the filename to use in the rating image (minus the quotes, of course).
Rating Score Index 0/10 - - "cross.png" 1/10 - - "0-5star.png" 2/10 - - "1star.png" 3/10 - - "1-5stars.png" 4/10 - - "2stars.png" 5/10 - - "2-5stars.png" 6/10 - - "3stars.png" 7/10 - - "3-5stars.png" 8/10 - - "4stars.png" 9/10 - - "4-5stars.png" 10/10 - - "5stars.png" 11+/10 - - "platinum.png" The cross is reserved for games that are downright atrocious, and nobody in their right mind should want to play. The Platinum 5-stars are reserved for games that are not done justice by a simple 5-gold stars. Anyway, now that you know how to do this, I hope we'll be seeing some more reviews.
