Runkle Plays Games Testimonials

The following are a few kind words from the creators who I have worked with over the years. I have always been upfront with them that my goal is to bring their product honest reviews and feedback. In each of these reviews, the companies were kind enough to provide me a copy of the product they were producing with the understanding that Runkle Plays Games would give them a quality Honest Review. I thank each and every one of you for both the opportunity to have worked with you as well as your kind words!


Dog Might Games

“I have worked with a lot of reviewers over the years and Shane is among the best of them. He is honest, thorough, and his reviews are well written. What I like most is the importance he puts on getting to know the features of the product. Every time I ask him to take a look at a product for us, he asks a number of clarifying questions so he is sure to get it right. Shane is also unafraid to point out flaws, an attribute I respect in any reviewer and a quality that the gaming Demands.”

“Shane’s reviews are in-depth, thorough and honest, and include both the good and the not-so-good of the games he reviews, and that’s just the way it should be. Otherwise, how would we publishers grow and make better games all the time? We need top-tier and reliable reviewers in the industry, and Shane is one of the best.”

I’m always excited to read what Shane thinks of our work when I send him review copies. Even though we are friends, I’ve always received honest reviews of my products. He does not pull punches on what he likes or dislikes, neither does he write puff pieces to make my products look better. I’m proud to share his reviews with potential clients.
