Grim Tales: The Heir Collector's Edition Icon
Creepy
by rosemary jean dyer, United Kingdom - Sep 6th 2017

This series never tires! Just when you thought the story could not twist more it does and expands and extends to offer more in the future. One day we may say enough of the Greys and the difficult (sometimes) puzzles, but not yet

Twist in this tale
by rosemary jean dyer, United Kingdom - Sep 6th 2017

I worked out this storyline quite early on but still enjoyed it. Puzzles are good too

Mystery Trackers: Paxton Creek Avenger Icon
Bit disappointing
by rosemary jean dyer, United Kingdom - Sep 6th 2017

This was not the best efforts from this storyline and the art work was very flat and weird in places, especially the MT people who seemed mis-drawn..puzzles ok.

Dark Strokes: Sins of the Fathers Collector's Edition Icon
Better than expected
by rosemary jean dyer, United Kingdom - Sep 6th 2017

Although I worked the plot out quite fast, I wasn't disappointed in this tale and the ending wasn't abruptly finished either.

Obduction Icon
Bored
by rosemary jean dyer, United Kingdom - Sep 6th 2017

While others (including my son) think this is a great game, I gave up because I was bored. Yes, it's well drawn, yes, it's a twisted plot and yes the puzzles make you think but I lost the point and my interest which saddened me. It is, I won't deny, a step up from the usual and certainly a welcome addition to the Myst family which many will enjoy but sadly, not for me.

A bug at the start of chapter 2 causes a crash to desktop. Don't waste your money until it's fixed.

by Simone Brightstein, Canada - Sep 5th 2017

Most disappointing that our Classic Scrabble can't be used on my Mac. Is there anything comparable that will?

Sid Meier's Pirates! Icon
Live the Swashbucklin' Life!
by Daniel Steven Oles, USA - Sep 5th 2017

It's a charming, fun, breezy game but it has depth and character. You end up doing A LOT of the same thing but there's been attention paid to make you advance to new challenges, uncover new secrets, and have multiple paths to victory. I like loading up and enjoying a little sailing, dueling, dancing and treasure hunting!

Hearts of Iron IV: Cadet Edition Icon
Very Good
by eamon360, United Kingdom - Sep 5th 2017

Grand strategy, lots of good mods, alternate history simulator, play as nearly any country you like. Fascist Ireland? Communist Australia? it can be done.

Wargame: Airland Battle
by Daz D., Australia - Sep 5th 2017

Not really my type of game. The unit models are nicely made, very real. I only bought it because it was on sale.

Kerbal Space Program Icon
Tinkerers Dream
by Milos V.1, USA - Sep 5th 2017

Such a well crafted gem for what it is, a space program sandbox. Transcends even PC gaming - everyone would like this game as long as you are using your imagination, are prepared to fail a few times before GREAT SUCCESS, and don't expect your hand to be held the whole time.

Europa Universalis IV: Common Sense Icon
Highly recommended
by Cristi P., Romania - Sep 5th 2017

This is one of the "tier 1", highly recommended DLCs for the game, according to reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/eu4/comments/5et9si/which_dlcs_should_i_get_a_help_for_people_new_to/

Good to get with a discount, one star deducted just for the ungodly number of DLCs that Paradox released for the game, and the fact that recent patches made it more-or-less mandatory to have Common Sense (the free base game apparently had new "challenges" introduced that can only be addressed through mechanics introduced in paid DLC).

Europa Universalis IV Icon
Brilliant strategy game
by Cristi P., Romania - Sep 4th 2017

I won't lie, this game is hard to get into (I tried picking it up several times it the past, but got annoyed with losing too much), but once you do, you can easily sink hundreds of hours into it. The world is richly detailed, the geography and history are largely accurate, and you get a significantly different experience depending on your starting nation and the goals you have in mind (near-endless re-playability in my mind).

On the fence as to whether or not to detract a star (eventually elected not to), because of the ridiculous state of the DLCs. You need to do a heck of a lot of research to figure out which DLCs are worthwhile, and a lot of DLC packs are largely useless (containing mostly unit texture packs). Otherwise, the base game has a ton of content for the price anyway, but you will very likely feel the need to get the expansions once you get a taste of the original.

Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit Icon
Nice to have, but not super-important
by Cristi P., Romania - Sep 4th 2017

I very much like the idea that they're still doing work on this game, and expanding it with great features (though some of them already existed as mods). It must be costly to keep the dev team working, so I don't mind spending the ten bucks every now and then if it keeps attention on the game high.

I'm going to give it five stars though, because I also *very* much like the approach of releasing some of the features as free updates. And indeed, I consider some of the free updates to the base game to be quite essential quality-of-life improvements.

The new transit options look good, and it's always fun to tinker with diverse options, but they're not really super-useful (if you're a really mechanics-oriented player). I ended up not using monorails all that much, because the stations take up a lot of space, generate noise pollution AND cost loads in upkeep. It's much more efficient to use something like trams instead.

Haven't used blimps or cable cars yet, but I can't imagine they help much with elimination gridlock (though I might be proven wrong). They seem more situational than anything else.

Cities: Skylines Icon
Fun, but a bit easy
by Anthony G.9, Canada - Sep 4th 2017

This is a great game, the graphics are great and it definitely scratches the creation itch you might have. That being said I feel the game doesn't have a lot in the way of a challenge. I'm by no means a great city creator, but my city is thriving and I haven't put much thought into it to be honest. It's my first trial by fire run and I'm killing it...kind of takes away my motivation to start a new city. All that being said, there are a ton of micromanagement options for those who like delving deep so it has potential to eat up your life. Fun game but be weary of the longevity if you're a casual. 8.5/10

Hard West Icon
Old West tactical rpg with a twist, what?
by Tapiwa N., Canada - Sep 4th 2017

Simply put, it's cowboys-and-Indians-and-demons-and-zombies X-Com 2. It's hard, if fun and it's got it's own flair that I thoroughly enjoy.

Used to love this game
by Stefan Bjarni Gudnason, Denmark - Sep 3rd 2017

This game is AWESOME, but this port is shit.

I have an iMac with an i7 3,4ghz processor, 8gb ram and a graphicscard with 2gb of video ram, but this game doesn't run smoothly at all.

it is simply unplayable

Militia Icon
Excellent tactics game
by andregurov, USA - Sep 3rd 2017

For a very simple ruleset and equally simple boards, this game is a delight akin to chess with fewer moves and quicker play. The ladder method of "moving up" rewards each victory as hard-earned and makes losses truly hurt; highly recommended.
