A clever spiritual successor to Civilization full of both novelties and big ideas.

Spacebase Startopia is a missed opportunity to meaningfully build on a classic, but it's still an entertaining management sim.
A smart, hypnotic city builder that won't leave you tearing out your hair.
Empire of Sin's many bugs, balance issues and competing systems undermine what could have been a novel mob management game.
Not quite as novel as its predecessor, but the co-op is still bewitching.
The stuff that made Crusader Kings 2 so enduring has been pushed to the front even more, while some of the bloat that accumulated over the better part of a decade has been chipped away. It's a very sensible sequel.
Refreshing tactical changes and some of the best maps in the series make this an experiment worth checking out.
Desperados 3 turns the Wild West into a brilliant tactical playground that will fill you with lead over and over again.
A mountain of issues gets in the way of the gratuitous monster murder and engaging customisation.
An exceptional RTS let down by a very disappointing remaster.
