Review Round Up: Micro-reviews Are Back From The Dead

It was a week infested with zombies and micro-reviews, the smaller format reserved for Kotaku reviews of downloadable video games and downloadable add-ons. It was also the week that featured our first massive-review.

That would have been Mike Fahey's review and four week long log of massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Trek Online, our first experiment with a new review format for games that are harder to judge in just a few days time. What do you think? Was it informative?

Get caught up on all our little reviews of big games and more.
