"Plunging headlong into Chinese politics and intrigue will easily entertain would-be emperors for days on end."
"Anno 1800 is a magnificent game to look at and a testament to what an accomplished large studio can achieve."
"The biggest sin committed by Tropico 6 is that it's buckling under the weight of its own history."
"Without a serious UI overhaul and retooling some of its core mechanics it's hard to see At the Gates soaring to new heights."
"Vampire Coast boasts a rather unique take on the campaign and it's a good addition to the expanding Warhammer roster."
"The mercenary life and its constant decision making, money issues, and tactical battles kept us nailed to our seat for hours on end."
"Bright and a bit quirky, it's a co-op focused brawler with some nice touches to character development and storytelling."
"You'll still get plenty of bang (or hours) for your buck, and several just-one-more-turns."
"All in all, it's an excellent addition to the ever-expanding TWW roster."
"Imagine Gang Beasts, but you've got puzzles to solve while being harassed by others."

"There are only a handful of big-budget open-world games with campaign co-op as good as this."

A departure from the norm for Guerrilla Games.
"The early notes were promising, but this sixteenth game in the series couldn't quite maintain its strong start."
"It's oozing with personality, has an excellent soundtrack and top-of-the-line platformer graphics."
Sixteenth time's the charm, it would seem.
"As a whole, Master of Orion 2016 is a great, if familiar, game for veterans of the hallowed series."
"The race is just about different enough to warrant the opening of your wallet, especially if you're into hyper-aggressive tactics."
Relic's return to 40K is all about WAAAAGH.
"It has revitalised the slightly worn series in the right places, but without damaging the core gameplay."
"This is a decent spiritual successor to an all-time classic but it stands on its own two augmented legs."
Check out our captured screens with almost maxed out settings.
"All in all, Act of Aggression is not half-bad in its attempt at bringing back the days of the classic RTS."
"The old tried and true 2.5D felt cleaner and better-suited for the puzzle sections but 3D is right at home during combat."

"It's still a fun game to play with friends, but it's not the new-gen update and spectacle we expected or were hoping for."
