This was a great week for user reviews. I'm happy to say that this week featured the most user reviews written since User Review Herding started (I know it hasn't been that long, but that is still a great achievement on the community's part). This week also has the most user reviews herded since we started. On the actual user review front, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was definitely at the top of peoples' lists this week, with Bastion also climbing close to the top. Keep up the great work guys.

Batman: Arkham Asylum
The Dark Knight Returns in Spectacular FashionWith all the buzz of Arkham City it’s only natural to want
to go back and play the one that started it all. Blaze6106 gives us their

sometimes, according to one of our users. Luciablee not only reviews Ratchet
and Clank: All 4 One, but also introduces us to the ups and downs of their
relationship with this title with the most detailed look at the game I’ve seen.
Crysis 2 Review - More than just pretty graphics?According to Candle_Reviews, Crysis 2 is more than just
spectacular graphics. In their review, Candle_Reviews explain that even though
the game can be a little buggy and the story a little out there, it is a big
step up from its predecessor, and an enjoyable gaming experience.

with near universal scorn and negativity, markus1142’s review shows a
different angle to this title. Though its flaws are there for all to see,

that’s well worth it.
