Review calculator spreadsheet

Review calculator is a spreadsheet file to help reviewers when scoring their reviews.
It allows you to predict the overall score given certain individual category scores.
You can try out category scores to see what effect changing them has on the overall score.

I use this when I write a review. I tend to decide on an overall score that I think a map
deserves (I am always mindful of being fair to maps I have reviewed before and I try to be
consistent over time). I can find out what combination of scores allows a particular overall score. I can then write my review to support my opinion.

I hope you find this useful.

The zip contains:
1) review calculator.xls - an excel97 workbook spreadsheet file (with areas pretected to prevent accidental changes)
2) review calculator.wks - a works1-2-3 spreadsheet file (with protected areas as above)
3) readme - review calculator.txt - description file

Sorry. As yet I do not know how accessible these files are for those who do not have Excel or Works. I suspect that Open Office will open at least one of them, if not both.

Timballisto I downloaded this without reading much of the descript, so I thought maybe it was a formula based calculator to decide what the score in each category would be. It wasn't that of course, but it gave me an idea. Maybe try your hand at something like that? I might give it a go even.

I can't see that working out. It would be too objective. A player's review must, by nature, be *sub*jective. Indeed how could a formulaic review be any good as an opinion to suggest it's download-value to other players? Hey! Maybe you should start a thread in the SD forum about that idea?
