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.

User Review


Great Promise, Merely Good Game
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.


aReview: inFamous
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 Revelations
The 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

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 V: Skyrim

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.

Honorable Mentions

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.
