Early Access Review
I'm a long time fan.
I will change this to positive review the first thing when they fix these (or most of):
1. steam rolling AI
2. endless loading screen rumba
3. shop / economy inbalance issues

I'm absolutely confident that they DO fix these, but I cannot recommend this game with a straight face until they do...

Dawn of man is a polished product and even though it has it's problems, I got my moneys worth.

Only major things I found problematic were:

I feel like there should be more control. Game has been designed automation in mind - which is good - but sometimes I feel like it's done a bit sloppy. You have no control over for how many citizens you assign to mines for example. I feel like a "low priority" setting for tasks would solve a lot of the control problems, hence now there is only 2 priority settings: normal and high - and it's common to run into issues where your citizens prioritize their tasks wrong with nasty results (such as starvation).

I'd like more progression. Now the game goes from sticks and stones to compound bow / steel sword. I felt like a little bit more would be nice, such as crossbows, churches and muskets. I wouldn't mind to buy an expansion pack for this.

I honestly appreciate the fact that they launched a complete, polished game instead of early access rubbish. Respect.

Excellent game overall
Same quality if not even better as in their previous game 'FTL'.
No bugs, great graphics and audio. UI is clean and intuitive. Everything just seems so polished and deliberate.
No performance issues either, I bet this game can run on a toaster...
These are traits every game should have, yet so many fail to do so. Fortunately there still exists developers like Subset Games.

For a seasoned strategist the game might feel a bit short. I completed the game already after 5hrs, when compared to FTL it took me at least ten times as much. That being said there is a lot to unlock by replaying the story. Completing it on hard difficulty is probably something I ought to do.

Didn't feel unfair in any point. It's difficult yes and luck is a factor but it's all manageable with skill.
Luck only comes into play on what items you can buy. In all my playthroughs there was enough useful items available, but sometimes you have to think a bit more outside the box. Some items are a bit easier to use effectively than others I find. There is also a hit roll when enemies attack civilian structures, which is a interesting mechanic, but almost always you can avoid it completely with clever tactics.

What caught me offguard is that the game is almost more a puzzle game than a typical fighting game.
There is a big focus on moving enemy units and positioning in general.
This works fantastic in my opinion.

Good old classic.
Wesnoth was one of the first games that really got me into PC gaming.
Steam doesn't show it but I have completed all the official campaigns released before 2018, and I have countless hours in multiplayer.

Solid puzzle game with suprising amount of depth to it.

It will test your patience, curiosity and creativity. In return it will give you a mysterius story, satisfying moments of discovery and a very unique atmosphere with some peace, strangeness and secrecy to it.

Xenonauts is an old schoolish strategy game made to honor the original x-com series.
I strongly recommend to download
x-Division mod[www.goldhawkinteractive.com].
The mod fixes some the games most fundamental flaws.

I continue to have huge respect for modders.

War of the Chosen is a solid DLC. It adds a lot of great stuff to xcom 2, so much that it could almost be a standalone game of it's own.

I would like more realistic and grim atmosphere like the XCOM Enemy Unknown and the older XCOM's had.
And while the chosen and the factions are a bit gringy at times, I can't say no to them since they add so many fun gameplay elements.

Couple of things I really disliked though.
There is a lot of enemies now who can mindcontrol your units. A lot. It wasn't unusual to fight against 4 mindcontrol able enemies at the same time. There is a counter for this though: Carry a lot of flashbangs in each mission. A LOT. But it kinda forces you to. Or focus on psionics I guess.

The "balance" between chosen is ridiculous I feel. The first one you encounter and suspect to be the easiest, is actually by far the hardest. Other two are actually pretty enjoyable to fight against but the first one just seems unfair at times.
There was also no information on how ridiculously hard the first chosen assault mission was.

Word of advice: do not try ironman in your first WotC game like I did.

NEO Scavenger is a very unforgiving survival game. It's addicting too. But you must endure failure.
Because once you die, you'll need to start all over again.

The game has a lot of dialog, oldish graphics and no animations so it demands some imagination from the player. It's safe to say that it appeals more to a strategian than to an adrenaline junkie.

Being too greedy will lead to you dying, being too careful will lead to you starving.
Dialog options may have serious consequences, sometimes helping someone will cause more harm than good and sometimes bad choice of action will lead to you actually dying, so be thoughtful.
Surviving is all about calculating your chances and avoiding unnecessary risks.
