Reader Reviews

Rock 'n' Roll Racing, the Game Boy Player, Star Wars: KOTOR, James Bond 007: EON and something called Samorost all caught your eye this week.

Spelling. Grammar. Punctuation. Brevity. What? Oh we're not lecturing you, gentle reader, we just thought we might put those words up there as we admire them greatly. Moving on - this week's reader reviews seem to swing between the surreal and the controversial, with semi-regular contributor Virgil Scott picking up the "Star Review" award (a copy of Whiplash for the PS2, if he wants it) after inadvertently reminding us of something funny we saw on the television last night. Meanwhile, a chap called Robo_1 extolls at length the supposed virtues of James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing (for the record, our problem with the "freefall" sequence wasn't a lack of signposting, but a complete lack of any guidance whatsoever). Perhaps most interesting though is marilena's dissection of Knights of the Old Republic, which says, in short, that it's a bit empty and boring (despite awarding it 7 marks out of 10). And of course there's this week's contribution from the ever-prolific Kami. Expect more from him next week. And us.

The Rules

Reader Reviews should be submitted to, and can be written about anything you like - hardware, games, peripherals - even if we've already written about it. In fact, that's kind of the point! Also, thanks to lobbying from various long-winded people, there is no word limit! Just please try to keep it clean and legal - like we do for you! The best candidate each week will receive a random bit of game-related tat (possibly even an actual game) as a prize. Lucky, lucky you. And of course, your work will be displayed for all to see.
