Proposal for Video Game Review for Vibe Productions
Henley College Student
I am creating a Video Game Review for the recent release BioShock: Infinite. I am using the
PC copy for my review. Not a console version. I have chosen to produce a review so that I
can show content and gameplay for people to then decide if they believe the game is worth
buying for them or not. This is important because when paying out £40 for a game, you will
want to know 1) It is worth the money and 2) that you will enjoy it.
I will be creating between a 10 – 15 minute video game review detailing different aspects of
the game such as Characters, Storyline, Weapons, Combat, Vigors, Setting and Transport.
The way I plan to set these out is have myself use a screen recording software called
Bandicam to record my screen as I play through the game in full. With this 10-12 hours of
game footage I will then edit it down to the parts that I will be talking over. I will be recording
myself read out a script in front of a green screen where I can then change the background
into the gameplay footage. This makes the review more interesting and personal then just
my voice. The age rating for my review is age 18 because I will be using in game footage,
the age rating of the game is 18 because of violent and graphic nature. The USP of my
product is that I will have high quality footage, informative information and also I will try keep
it fun. I am the only talent for my production as I am the presenter.
During research I have found the video game reviews are not something that a lot of people
produce, but it is something that a lot of people have said that need. Sites such as PC
Gamer, IGN and Metacritic have reviews on games but these are text based. This is why I
have tried something different. Other highly known reviewers like Angry Joe are known
because he is informative, funny and still has great quality. But he is one of the only ones
I’ve seen with such excellence about him. The review is important to let people know if it is
worth them spending their money on and also if they will enjoy it.
