We Want Your Reader Reviews

And we’ll publish them, too. And - even better - we'll now be giving a cool Madman Entertainment prize pack to the best reviewers.

That’s right, we want you to share your views on the latest games with the rest of the Kotaku community.

It’s easy. Just write a review of a (fairly) recent game and send it to us.

OK, it’s not quite that easy. Your review must conform to the standard Kotaku review template, meaning it must contain:

* A brief introduction detailing what the game is about * A description of the things you LOVED (using titled bullet points) * A description of the things you HATED (using titled bullet points) * A brief conclusion detailing your overall opinion

And you must do all this in under 300 words.

Check out the reader reviews we’ve published so far of Ghostbusters, The Sims 3, and Tales of Monkey Island. Follow that format and you'll be fine.

We’re looking for sharp writing, keen analysis and interesting views. Include your name and of course the name of the game you’re reviewing and email it to us with “Kotaku Reader Review” in the subject. We’ll be publishing the best ones as we receive them and we’ll be offering a prize incentive for the very best.

madman-logoA prize? Yes, a prize. Thanks to the very kind chaps at Madman Entertainment, purveyor of all kinds of cool, indie and esoteric film, the best reader review we publish each month will win a DVD pack containing ten of Madman's latest releases.

We'll be announcing the first winner at the end of August. Everyone who's had a review published to date will be eligible to win. Everyone who hasn't had a review published, you've got three weeks from today!


    Kinda sucks that i only tend to review older games...

    Prizes you say? Woohoo for added incentive!

    Margaret and David. Such a high and worthy standard to live up to. Viva 'At The Movies'!

    Nice, if only i had more games to review

    Oh wait my UFC review is in the running YAY!!!!

    Sounds awesome. I've already got a review published, but am I allowed to write some more to increase my chances of winning or is it only one review per writer?

      You can submit as many as you like. Only reviews that get published will be in the running to win, however.

    I haven't bought a recent game in ages...
    Damn. I need a job >.>

    Hmm I'd review more but you guys always review the games that I consider doing; Harry Potter, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Dark Lord, Wii Sports Resorts... there are only so many games that I can bother playing! -_-
