This week, User Review Herding hit a bit of a slump. The
number of reviews are down as well as the number of reviews herded. However, that
does not mean that the few that made the cut aren't worth your time; far from
it. This week gives us a bit of variety in our reviews so I hope you guys enjoy
the hard work from our community. Read on.

Great Promise, Merely
Haiiro89 takes a look at Rochard, a recently released downloadable platformer.
Though decently praised all around, Haiiro89 talks about their slight
disappointment with the title and details the small hiccups that caused the
game to falter in their eyes.
Soren Hough takes a trip back a few years and reviews Infamous. Though they
enjoyed the game, they discuss how the story was mediocre at best and how the
gameplay is what kept them coming back for more.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations
The Good vs Bad when
it comes down to Assassins Creed RevelationsThe most recent entry in the Assassin's Creed franchise has met with lukewarm
to positive reviews. That_sterlin_kid talks about his good time with
Revelations and how, despite a couple of downers, this title inserts some well
needed additions that keep the game fun.
Portal 2 - A New
Standard of Creativity in Gaming
Portal 2 continues to garner more than favorable attention from gamers several
months after its release. Pyrostech gives us their opinion of Valve's
spectacular first-person puzzle platformer and explains why they hold the game
in such high regard.
The Elder Scrolls
I Didn't Know A Game
Could Be This Awesome
Skyrim never dies. Still on many peoples' radars, Skyrim makes its way back
into the herd with a review by ManManDoo. With Skyrim as their first Elder
Scrolls experience, ManManDoo's short but sweet review touches all that makes
Skyrim a great game.
A Nightmare On Elm
Street (2010) Dual Review And Discussion
Though not a video game review, I believe this interesting premise deserves
recognition. Veteran Member Mray901 reviews the latest Nightmare on Elm Street film. Not only that, Mray901
adds a review from another member to establish a different point of view, all
to set up the second part of the blog/review, the discussion. The review is
well written and the discussion in interesting. Don't miss it.
