I've spent a fair amount of time with my PS Vita now (mostly with Rayman: Origins) and WipEout 2048 is being cited as one of the must have launch titles. Is this a fair evaluation? Reader Review regular Ben Latimore investigates...


Sometimes it's good to get a reader review of a lesser known game, just to raise awareness and to get a viewpoint on a game you may otherwise have ignored. So we'd like to thank Chad Lennerts for taking the time to write about Combat Mission Battle for Normandy.


I'm always happy to let someone else take the reins here at Kotaku and write a reader review or two - especially when that man is Adam Ruch, who has become a bit of a regular contributor here. Adam is currently writing a PhD on the subject of video games, so it's safe to say that he knows his stuff.


Well, Sucker Punch isn't technically a video game, but it's clearly inspired by video games - it's for this reason that I'm allowing a movie review on Kotaku - just this once! Especially given that it's as well written as this one - great job AmbroseIV.


I haven't had the chance to play Shogun 2, despite being heavily impressed the last time I checked it out during development, but Dean Henderson has, and he's wrote up this spiffing reader review.


I haven't had the chance to play Deadly Premonition, despite the fact it's been out for a while, but it's attracted quite the cult following. Jonno Phillips is on hand with this reader review to help guide you through one of the strangest games ever conceived.


Despite the fact that it's hardly a blockbuster release, I've been hearing good things about Tropico 3 - a recently released dictator simulation - so when Adam Ruch, PhD candidate, and sometime Kotaku contributor offered to write a Reader Review on the game, who was I to say no!


I consider myself a bit of an Xbox LIVE Arcade connoiseur, but I totally missed out on Monday Night Combat when it was initially released. Now that it's been released on Steam, we've had a review sent in from Grandmaster B-Funk to get us all up to date on this overlooked gem.


Weirdly enough, I had forgotten about the release of Dead Nation, despite being interested when it was first announced. Thankfuly Ben Carey didn't - he's played it, and written a reader review for your perusal.


Jenn Christodoulou, always does good reader reviews. She also has a surname that I always have to copy and paste. But most importantly she has written another reader review - this time on Rockstar's recent DLC, Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare.


It's been too long since we ran a reader review, but don't worry I haven't forgotten about you guys! We have a bunch in stock, and I'll be dropping more over the next couple of weeks.

First up is Benjamin Golightly, with his review of Super Scribblenauts. I enjoyed the first game, but somehow found it difficult to muster up any interest for the sequel. I figured plenty of you guys would be in the same frame of mind, so perhaps this review will inspire you to give it a second glance.


It's been far too long since the last reader review, so here's a new one for your perusal. This time it's Mitch Alexander in the hotseat, with his review of Blood Bowl: Legendary.

Let's hear it Mitch and, as always, let us know what you thought of the game in the comments below!


You've heard what Kotaku had to say about Call of Duty: Black Ops, but now it's the turn of Justin Robson, who has written up a reader review on the Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer section.

Take it away Justin...


We've been doing Reader Reviews for a while now on Kotaku, but this may be a unique entry. Alastair Christie, having mad Japanese reading skills, decided to import a Japanese copy of the upcoming Okamiden, sequel to cult classic Okami on PS2, and was kind enough to write up a reader review on it.


We haven't done a Reader Review in a while, and we certainly haven't done a PlayStation Move reader review, so it seemed like a good time to kill two birds with one stone with Ben Carey's review of Tumbler on the PSN.
