Do you like short or long "video" reviews of your PS3 games?

Short reviews for me.



Long reviews tend to mix in their opinions too much to the point that it's more than what is necessary. Short ones are obviously concise and the reviewers won't bother wasting your time with too much special effects.


Anything beyond 10 minutes is too long for me. Angry Joe is an example of this. His review shows are too long for their own good.

I don't care how long or short it is as long as it tells me what I want to know.

Long reviews. Like how Angry Joe does it.

Classic Game Room short.

No BS, and telling me if the game is fun.

Don't need to know anything else, as my mind is made up prior to any review. I just like watching short reviews that get to the point.

I like long videos describing gameplay, and little to no emphasis on a useless score.

Long reviews.

But I tend to favor written reviews and look up gameplay separately. Why? Because I'm fairly impatient and can get to the points important to me faster in a written review.

That said, if a video review uses gameplay footage well to enforce the points the reviewer talks about, I very much enjoy watching that. Basically, if there's a problem, the video shows that. If something is entertaining, the video show that. At the same time as the reviewer tells us about it.

That's one of the reasons why I do watch Gametrailers reviews, in spite of their tendency to spoil some plot events. You know, with their tendency towards editing in in-game dialogue to agree with the points made (Or otherwise comment them), after or before showing the thing spoken about.

Bugs? Show bugs. Poor controls? Falling off a ledge. Good combat? Rapid fire montage of enemies being blown to bits. Gorgeous environments? Stand in a good spot and pan the camera across the environment. It's entertaining to watch.

I feel the same way, but I generally prefer if the video review is around 5-10 minutes long than 20+ minutes. I just need to know the basic things after all. No need to go into too much detail.
