User Review Contest: Impress Your Peers, Win A Free Game!

Update: We'll let this run for another week and by the way, feel free to submit a review for any game in the PlayStation realm. I'll remove the 2013 restriction. :)

Original Story:

It's the triumphant return of our popular So You Think You Can Review Video Games user review contest!

Last year, we handed out quite a few prizes to those who wrote the best reviews for high-profile video games. And now we've added a few important titles to the list of available prizes, so it's time to give you guys another shot at winning a free game.

Click through the link above to see how this works, if you aren't already familiar. Just submit a review to us through the User CP section of your PSXE account; this particular contest is calling for any 2013 game. That means that any title released on a PlayStation platform between January 1, 2013 and now is eligible, and you can write the review any way you see fit. It will only pass through a brief approval process on our end for the sake of preventing spam. There will be no editing; if it has misspelling and other mistakes, they'll be included in all their unfortunate glory.

Next Sunday, we'll post up the user reviews in our poll and ask which amateur critics wrote the best analysis. If we get more than 10 submissions this week (which is more than a little likely), we'll trim it down to the 10 best. Then it's all up to the community to decide the winner. Remember, to be eligible to receive a prize, you must be a US citizen, as we won't ship outside the country.

And here's an updated list of games we've got available; the winner will get to pick whatever he or she wants:

  • Dead Space 3 (PS3)
  • MLB 13: The Show (PS3)
  • MLB 13: The Show (Vita)
  • Gravity Rush (Vita)
  • Sorcery (PS3)
  • Ridge Racer (Vita)
  • Ridge Racer Unbounded (PS3)
  • Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice (Vita)

I also have more Vita games, along with some soundtracks and t-shirts, so if you win and nothing you see here catches your eye, I'm sure we can work something out. :) Lastly, don't forget that the winner's review will be published on the site as a special guest review.

I was contemplating entering the contest until I saw the games that are available to be won. No longer interested.

Can't think of any game I'd review that isn't really good so it'd be me gushing on and on about how awesome a game is. Do you accept non Playstation reviews? I could really sell someone on xenoblade chronicles and a wii purchace all in one review.

It has to be for a PlayStation platform so it can fit in one of our channels.

Hey Undertaker, what is your website? - I'd love to take a look as I have just started my personal reviews on my new website myself. Would be great to see other peoples reviews.

Hmmm, haven't picked up a game that released this year, although I'd like to try the new GOW at some point. Also Ben, typo in the article, it says 2012 game where it appears you meant 2013.

Damn it Ben, You know I can't review a 2013 game without a 2013 game! Kidding, but as always dirt broke college student status for the win, haha. I made finalist in my last round so I eagerly await your next contest.

The PSXE user review contest is back! Pick a game that released in 2012, write your very best analysis, and you might earn yourself a free game!

Ben, FYI I just noticed this from the blog page. It says 2012, not 2013. Probably nothing anyone would've noticed anyhow.

I made a submission today, hopefully I got it in soon enough to be considered, but if not, best of luck to the qualifying entrants.

Between work and college, just didn't have the time during the week.
