@Synthia - wait, then who is that woman behind the curtain? and what are all these flying monkeys doing in my office... and this blog is 'rage-ful' :)
The "Honorable Mentions" have evolved into the Top 1,000! Congrats reviewers.
dark_being [7.5 - Good] Rage is a fun first-person shooter, but some gameplay limitations and the various visual bugs mar the experience.
bowlingotter [7.0 good] Rage might not be what we'd hoped, but it's a solid ride. That said, the PC is not the platform to play it on.
nutcrackr [6.5 - Fair] Fails with narrative, variety, replay value and ambition. Technical problems at launch didn't help.
-Tomb Raider: Underworld
JustPlainLucas [6.0 - Fair] Lara Croft is beginning to feel as ancient as the relics she hunts for.
Gelugon_baat [8.5 - Great] Galactic Civilizations is the beginning of a surprisingly excellent space-empire-building franchise.
-Garshasp: The Monster Slayer
Domstercool [5.0 - Mediocre] God of War style Persian mythology? I'm up for that, just a shame that Garshasp has too many problems to be good.
-Sideway: New York
asian_pride69 [8.0 - Great] Sideway is a unique, creative take on the platforming genre while managing to still feel familiar.

@Synthia Thanks again. Congrats to all of the other people mentioned as well. There are a lot of great writers here.
Oh my, my humble little Harvest Fishing review got mentioned. I'm blushing. Thanks, @Synthia. Also, @Gelugon_baat: Galactic Civilizations was a pretty terrific game for the very fact that it is so elaborate, so good job.
LOL! I had no idea I was mentioned until I actually edited my review a little after noticing a few things I missed. Thanks for the mention. It looks like I will lose the battle though, LOL!
@Synthia That would be a bit pretentious :P Are small reviews aloud? My recent ones are pretty small.
wow, always amazes me what great writers are hiding here on gamespot. particulary enjoyed the Okami review by stephenage, really well written. oh and I vote for the 360 DR:OTR review
wait, are we voting on which review is better, or which review says which game is better? Either way, I feel like I have to vote XBOX since I have DR2 on XBOX, that makes sense to me :) and thanks for the shout-out :)
