  1. Great Game
    by Marcel P.4, Canada - Jun 3rd 2019

    Another well thought out game by Paradox, although not designed by them directly. It's not a game that requires a high level of focus like EU4 or CK2, but is fun and interesting on different maps. Especially on sale, this is a must have especially for strategy fans.

  2. Best City Building Simulation of the Decade
    by Armaan S., Canada - May 28th 2019

    Cities Skylines is said to be what Sim City never was, an excellent game, excellent graphics, and does not require much fps (20 is plenty) to be enjoyed. I highly reccommend this to anyone who likes city building and management!

    Great game with huge mod base, makes it endless. Hours of fun for cheap. Not too easy so you don't get bored of it.
