Fun throwback to games like Commander Keen and Duke Nukem. The weapons are very fun. It's a little short but the length feels right, and a good price too.

A fun puzzler, especially if you're tired of boring old Euclidean space.

This is the first Anno game I've played. I used to play Pharaoh and Caesar way back when, and this game brought back a lot of memories of hours spent building ancient cities. I had a lot of fun with Anno, it's city building but more technical than SimCity, with more complexity within your control.

Mostly comes down to supply chain management, which the game does make rather difficult to maintain. Still a fun game, but weird to think that most of the challenge is created by the lack of a good visibility into your supply chain. I used to work on supply chain management software, so I understand the importance of having good visbility into your resource availability, which lets you leverage your vertical synergy across your extended enterprise. Or whatever.

Really enjoyed the story in this. A lot of opportunities to direct the course of events. While I didn't like the setting as much as DC, there are still plenty of interesting places to explore.

This game is really fun and surprisingly addictive. It's kind of like a card game, but at the start of each game 20 cards are selected from your collection and those cards are the only cards available for that game. There's no drawing involved - all 20 are available to cast provided you have enough mana. There's a lot of variety as your deck will change from match to match, but also lets you do a lot of strategic planning during each duel as you don't have to rely on luck to draw the right card.

Great sequel. The combat is mostly unchanged (that's a good thing) but there are a few nice improvements, and more variety in the enemies. This game is a lot bigger than the first, but I do feel like the locations in this game were a little less memorable. The new flying/gliding mechanics are fun, some cool new gadgets & gadget features, craftier riddler challenges, side quests, and a lot of excitement.

Good game. Cool weapons, physics stuff to play with, and fun maneuvering techniques.
