Reader Reviews

Midtown Madness 3, Freak Out, the PS2 itself and someone's opus on ICO.

Bags of submissions this week, but we felt it best to limit ourselves to four given the sheer size and girth of the final entry. We don't normally go about our 300 word limit, but in this case we made an exception because, as anybody who's played it can attest, the game in question is quite simply a work of art. Rest assured if you've submitted a review we will read it and probably run it. If we haven't so far, we're probably just worried it will outshine all the rest...

This week's prize, for those who have been keeping track, is, well, let's be honest - we've run out of things to give away. We shall endeavour to find something lying around the office which the winner might be able to take advantage of, and once we do, he can rest assured we'll email him.

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! Your word limit is 300 although we'll tolerate a bit of overflow if you can string words together nicely, and please try to keep it clean and legal. Just 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.
