    Of all the current space strategy games Sins of a Solar Empire is my favorite.

    For a first game it's surprisingly complex, challenging and motivating.

    Rise of Venice hasn't been built from scratch but compared to Port Royale 3 it comes with added politics, a 3D map and adjustments in all the right spots. It's a classic trading sim where everything works together extremely well and it will keep you busy for weeks.

    The interesting characters and the thrilling story were worth the wait. Now let's hope the second episode can keep up this kind of quality.

    It's rare to find a game that deals with topics like depression in such a mature way. If you want to experience an experimental artistic adventure, you're in for a journey you won't easily forget.

    I have waited 19 years for a worthy successor to Battle Isle 2 and it was worth it. Well animated units, simple to understand, tricky to master, challenging AI. The presentation could be better though.

    The singleplayer campaign is a failure, but the multiplayer is worth it. Looks great, almost perfect sound and it's fun. The levolution feature improves the atmosphere of the game, but has with little consequences regarding game play.

    The magic word is perma-death and makes looking around for food and trying to survive thrilling. Technically it's mediocre but if you like zombies you need to play State of Decay.

    It may be overwhelming for beginners, but it offers months of fun for veterans of the genre. It doesn't change a lot compared to the first installments, but why change good things that work?

    It's a magical 2D RPG you just have to love. The art style and the fitting characters create a visual highlight.

    Extremely addictive despite some weaknesses. A captivating world of model railroads.

    I'd be lying if I said that I did not have fun with Shadow of Mordor, because it kept me entertained for 30 hours. Not on a superior level, but on a good, technically flawless one, whose objective quality one must be soberly recognized. But it has never affected me emotionally in that time, never surprised me, never gave me the feeling that I'd just played something special, something unique, something remarkable.

    Buy recommendations rarely fall so easily like this: If you want just more Borderlands, buy the Pre-Sequel.

    Hopefully the game grows as well as Civilization 5 with future patches and add-ons for the game that satisfy my inner Jean-Luc Picard.

    A modern retro platformer that plays in the same league as the classics.
