About Us

NEWB – A term used to describe a inexperienced gamer/person/etc. Unlike a noob, a newb is someone who actually wants to get better.

This is the story of one man’s dream to create a site that didn’t opt for the elitism you find on other gaming related sites. After all, just because we want to know more about what’s going on in the video game world, doesn’t mean that we know everything about the video game world.

In light of this, Steve “Kamiza” Garrett decided that there should be a place where people can enjoy gaming news and reviews without feeling excluded because they’re “newbs”. From the brain of this one man, newbreview.com was born.

newbreview.com employs the one-two punch of great content and the assault on the eardrums that is The Newb Review Podcast.

We will strive to bring news, content, reviews (for both old and new games) to the common gamer so you don’t feel out of place just because you don’t know everything about games. Why?

Because we’re not all hardcore!

Our pledge

To further secure our reputation as a provider of reviews you can rely on, every one of our reviews written after 10th May 2011, whomever it’s written by, stands by the following star definitions:

1 star – Dreadful / Borderline unplayable
2 stars – Flawed. Buggy, dull, or just plain bad
3 stars – Fair. An average-good game
4 stars – Excellent. Well-polished gaming experience
5 stars – Genre-defining. Adds something new to the genre and raises the bar for future competitors
