It's the first User Review Herding of the year. Excited? I know I am. Sadly, with coming off of the holidays, the amount of user reviews was quite low this week. It was difficult to pinpoint which games were reviewed the most since none were reviewed more than twice. In that case, I decided to skip that particular state in order to save space. However, there were a few great reviews to find and here they are.

entry in the series is quite possibly the epitome of survival games.
Crysis 2: The Story of a Super SuitCrysis 2 is quite a game with many great game mechanics, but
as Jack, The Quixotic Gamer reveals, it is anything but perfect. Jack explains
how the different methods of approaching situations in the game keep the
gameplay interesting, but can’t keep some of the flaws concealed.
The Force Unleashed
The Force UnpolishedMany gamers had a great time with the original Star Wars:
The Force Unleashed. However, markus1142 shows us that it isn’t always a blast
to go back and play old favorites, as he details the “mess” that is The
Batman: Arkham Asylum
My Arkham Asylum ReviewIt may be a little short, but Josh gives a well written
review of Batman: Arkham Asylum as well as a good explanation of why he awarded
Arkham City’s predecessor a perfect score on the Game Informer scale.
