Do Reviews Really Matter?
Depending on who you ask the answer could go either way but for me reviews are about discovery, and I will read reviews about games that interest me to whatever tipping point has me thinking 'Ok, I need to buy into this,' as anything more will be telling me too much, and could possibly make my own experience not as entertaining.
Some friends I have will specifically follow certain critics, and will purchase the things that are recommended to them, but this could mean that they actually avoid games that they might enjoy. What is apparent though is that all of my friends do read reviews, even if it is not for exactly the same reason.
Reviews are important, it's a fact. We read them when we are buying new home or car insurance, or when we are changing our power suppliers, reading them for games, is for many, just as important. They get a collective view together, something that can be used, a tool of sorts to help us make a choice, but more so, to make that choice informed something that is important in our busy lives.
If we take as an example mobile casino reviews we can see at a glance which sites are offering the best bonuses and promotional offers, all in one place. Review sites can be used by both seasoned players and new players alike to find a mobile casino that will suit their needs the best.
Just like any other comparison site a good mobile casino review will tell the potential player all they need to know about the site that they are contemplating including who provides the software, what the customer support framework is like, and whether the games choice is broad enough to keep you interested. Sites will then be rated and ranked.
Of course, there will always be some who believe that the 'purist' approach of not knowing anything about a site or game before trying it out, but for me that simply is not the case, especially if I am going to eventually invest some of my own hard-earned cash into the game.
I would recommend anyone to read reviews, ok don't overdo it but just take on board the view of the majority before deciding.
