It's hard to recommend FIVE: Guardians of David to anyone. Fans of action RPGs have literally dozens of better games to choose from.

3 / 5.0 - SimplePlanes
Jan 6, 2016

Although its toolset is robust and allows for the construction of both imaginative and real-world aircraft, and the community has provided a huge library of pre-rolled classic planes and inventive designs, SimplePlanes is a bare-bones product.

2.5 / 5.0 - Herding Dog
Jan 14, 2016

Ultimately, what's disappointing about Herding Dog is that its aspirations, demands, tasks and ideas are simply too small scale.
