We Want Your Reader Reviews

This is just a friendly reminder to get reviewing. (Because I've run out of decent reader reviews to publish.) You could even win a cool Madman Entertainment Blu-ray/DVD prize pack.

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 500 words.

Check out the reader reviews we’ve published so far during June, May, April, March, February, January, December, November, October, September and August. 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 Blu-ray and/or DVD pack containing ten of Madman's latest releases.


    Hopefully the reader reviews won't be as mediocre as the reviews of the persons pictured.

    Well, okay, I find the chick amusing at least.

    Does this just for game reviews only?

    Sorry for stuffing up the question.

    Are the reviews for games only?

      As long as it's relevant, hardware and accessory reviews will be considered.

    Hey DW, I sent you a Reader Review, but promptly forgot to include "Kotaku" in the subject line. Should I resend with "Kotaku Reader Review" for the sake of your email filters?

    8 or maybe more reviews, no review of the month yet, sob.

    Well, after my uni term starts next week, i'll get back into the groove of getting recent games. I'll try to review and send in what i can.

    I dont think Valkyria Chronicles (that is totally awesome so far) is really recent enough.

      A review of Super Mario Bros. (admittedly written in a very clever way) won a month or so ago, so why not!

    I just received Bayonetta today (and, once again, thank you so much. The whole pile is beautful!) so I'll get to reviewing that soon :)
