As part of the data transfer to the new RapReviews.com website, we have built a database to store all the review content. Currently, the website is thousands of HTML pages, so this was a long and painful process, but alas, we have done it! Shout out to Matt Jost for the support on this.
Given the current site design doesn’t have a search function (CTRL+F isn’t the same!), I thought it would be nice to pull together all the highly-rated reviews from the team. There’s bound to be some gems in here that you may not have checked for upon release.
The list is over 1,000 strong so I’ll be posting these day-by-day, grouped by year of review. It’s worth noting that these are sorted by the date that the review was posted, so we may have covered a record years later.
Keep an eye out for more information on the new RapReviews, and thanks for your continued support!
