User Review Contest: Who Was The Most Skilled Critic?

Okay, it's time to select another winner in our ongoing So You Think You Can Review Video Games user review contest.

The latest was a little more restricting, as we wanted you to write a review of one of this fall's titles. There are plenty of games available for autumn, of course, but we usually let you write a review for any game you wish. That's just too darn easy!

Seven of you stepped up to deliver an entry and now it's time for the community to decide: Who wrote the best analysis? Here is each user and his review; check 'em out and then vote in the poll on the right. Who impressed you most?

Gorilla Biscuit, Assassin's Creed III: Liberation

Mdash009, Borderlands 2

TGSA, Borderlands 2

Temjin001, Dead or Alive 5

Dirt, Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Cartrite12, Okami HD

dmiitrie, XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Whoever receives the most votes this week will a free game and trust me, I have a goodly selection. I can't guarantee I'll have exactly the title you're looking for but hey, it's free. Can't go wrong, right? Good luck!

You mean my review of IdolM@ster2 was not eligible? ;)

Ah well, I'll have to find something more contemporary in future... :P

Well, no, but only because it was submitted well before the competition started. I probably could've put it in then, though...sorry about that.

lol, no problem Ben, I somehow missed the actual start of the competition anyway otherwise I'd have written an entry. Besides, The Idolm@ster 2 was release about a year ago in Japan, and never here, so it probably doesn't qualify as a fall release in any case. :)

Surprised at the lack of Dishonored.

I'm buying it soon. I have such a backlog that I need a good deal to justify it thus I'm (hopefully) getting it on Black Friday from walmart for $25

If I was a billionaire I'd buy tons of copies and sell them on ebay at a loss.

Bah, I never got around to it. I was at a work conference all week last week, and I just didn't have the time. Ah well, maybe next time! I'll give everyone's reviews a read, though!

Great that you linked to the reviews this time Ben. Mucho appreciato. :)

But I got the same problem here as I did the last time around: There is this odd tendency of the best written text having the most misplaced rating scores!

There are a couple of reviews I think were well written, but I *strongly* question the rating. Can that be called a good review then? Should it receive my vote over a rather dull review text, but much more precise validation?

It's not easy!

Welcome to the wonderful world of video game reviews...which is never as straightforward as some seem to think. ;)

I found myself having a hard time choosing too because I thought they were all well done in their own aspects.

I finally had to settle on cartrite12's Okami HD, because not only is the game itself very colorful, Cartrite12's review was actually able to colorize it in thoughts as well.
