Top 100 Reviews

Deus Ex: Human Revolution
gbrading [8.5 - Great] Human Revolution is not revolutionary, but it is an evolutionary step in the right direction.
Shadows of Undrentide
Gelugon_baat [7.0 - Good] Shadows of Undrentide is a decent expansion that offers a few new things to the main game.
Pac-Man Championship Edition DX
AK_the_Twilight [8.5 - Great] Dizzyingly presented and addictively frantic, Pac-Man's latest XBLA title is an absolute rush and by far his best yet.
And Yet It Moves
c_rake [6.0 - Fair] Though none of its elements truly come together, And Yet It Moves is a solid platformer.
Worms Ultimate Mayhem
DraugenCP [8.0 - Great] Above anything else, this game made me realize I've been missing out as a newcomer to Worms.

Top 500 Reviews

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
gamefreak197 [9.0 - Superb] With friends to enhance the experience, All 4 One makes for another great entry in the series.
Duke Nukem Forever
loopy_101 [6.5 - Fair] A curious but tainted piece of video entertainment history: comparable to Daikatana or the Atari 2600 version of Pac-Man
Espgaluda II
NeonNinja [9.0 - Superb] Espgaluda II is a landmark shooter from a development team known for being one of the best in the genre.
Nintendo 3DS
YearoftheSnake5 [8.0 - Great] The 3DS is a solid handheld that is worth owning despite a few flaws.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
ZanarkandTidus [9.0 - Superb] Amazing Blade Runner style atmosphere and a good mix of cover shooting and stealth gameplay make this game awesome.
Sid Meier's Civilization V
akhorahill [8.5 - Great] Great strategy game but lacks the awe inspiring greatness and soul of its predecessors.
Nuclear Dawn
bowlingotter [8.0 - Great] The learning curve is painful, but the payoff is worth it.
Touhou Youyoumu: Perfect Cherry Blossom
Cloud_765 [9.0 - Superb] Perfect Cherry Blossom delivers on many levels.

Crysis 2
adit942 [8.5 - Great] Maximum Review, engaged.
BioShock
bugbag [8.5 - Great] BioShock sinks you into the very depths of it's incredible story and creepy atmosphere.
Dark Souls
cronosblaster [7.5 - Good] You're hardcore!
Deadly Premonition
der_spudmeister [7.5 - Good] Good, bad and ugly mix in this ghostly goofball adventure.
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
gamefreak197 [9.0 - Superb] With friends to enhance the experience, All 4 One makes for another great entry in the series.
Rage
skratchmasta [7.0 - Good] Lush visuals and solid shooter elements stand out in what is ultimately a shallow experience.
Batman: Arkham Asylum
siberian142 [9.0 - Superb] Arkham Asylum is one of the best action adventure games you can get, even if you are not a fan of Batman.

Platform Battle: Battlefield 3

For this week's platform battle, we have a special three-way edition where we take a look at the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 and the PC.

Honorable Mentions

World of Tanks
Ricoxs [8.5 - Great] The main reason why a lot of people complain about the game is because it requires intelligence to master.
Batman: Arkham City
super_tails [9.5 - Superb] Arkham City stands out alone as a awesome Batman game, but also a fantastic follow up from 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Kirby's Return to Dreamland
rushiosan [9.0 - Superb] Kirby's Return to Dreamland marks the return of a classic Kirby game on a home console and the end of the Wii era.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon
Darrt_Feld [7.0 - Good] While it's not the same as traditional Ace Combat game, it has some decent new concepts.
X-Men: Destiny
DylanWirta [7.5 - Good] You can clearly tell this game was rushed but it is still a very enjoyable X-Men game!

Wow, I've been mentioned in two articles now. Thanks GameSpot. Maybe it's just coincidence but both my mentioned reviews comment on fanbois...Let's not read too much into it. Here's hoping to be mentioned many times in the future! Congrats to all other reviews as well, it's always an honor when somebody takes notice of your meek review.

More ace combat reviews would be good! @parkurtommo I think you either have to be the to be able to submit your review or get featured, something like that.
