Slow but solid gameplay, though there are some major balance/difficulty issues - and to counteract those you need to grind quite a bit. The graphics are similar to a space RTS, though you have far less units than a normal RTS.
 
Third-person shooter MMO with odd aiming and repetitive missions. The teams are often completely unbalanced and the mission goals sometimes are as well. Turtling many times wins the match.
 
Simple, but enjoyable. I find the enemies more distracting than fun - but love the collecting aspect of the game. It reminds me of the gameplay from N64 titles like Donkey Kong 64
 
Decent mechanics but disgusting theme. Enemies can shoot diagonally, you can't. The bad hit-boxes on arrows are frustrating, making yours regularly miss enemies and allowing enemies to occasionally hit you through walls. Made with Flash, low res.
 
An interesting mix of music and gaming - enemies generated by songs. Disappointing that they charge extra for multiplayer (DLC - BH Ultra).
 
The survival mode is fun co-op but it has huge flaws - can't join mid-game, and people who disconnect can't rejoin. You also can't heal - have to suicide while your friends kite. There's also a huge disparity in the usefulness of the guns.
 
This slick looking puzzle game is simple, but enjoyable. As the game progresses you unlock six special abilities and more complex puzzles to go with them. Aside from the simple 'normal' puzzles, there are also 'hard' and 'bonus' levels.
 
Reminds me a little of Crayon Physics Deluxe - though the AI of the bugs you're transporting is poor at times. They really shouldn't hop constantly, it makes it difficult to extract them from tight spaces. Other than that, a decent puzzle to pass some time.
 
I didn't enjoy this nearly as much as Trine - it felt like less of a puzzle game and a lot more platformer. The wizard's triangle is gone, and all the characters swim the same now.
 
A fun co-op experience. The latest AI patch made it much easier to play without all four players being human. Enemy AI still has nearly perfect aim, but the body armor balances nicely if you use cover. You earn new guns and upgrades as you play.
 
A game for people who want to pretend to be hackers. Unfortunately this is only slightly more authentic than Hollywood movie representations of hacking.
 
The tone of this game is somber. The primary goal in most game modes is to cause the greatest loss of life in your opponents as possible. There should be more freedom in unit selection, and a more detailed scoring system that rewards strategy.
 
Slightly dated graphics, but quite fun. A successful combination of World of Warcraft and Team Fortress 2, with a lot of thoughtful features. There are some bugs and oddities, but overall a free-to-play game that feels complete without paying for upgrades.
 
The casting system is reasonably intuitive, and the gameplay itself is as fun as Torchlight, though the heavy corridor feel of the levels detracts a bit. There is a smattering of story and humor throughout, but I wouldn't call it story-driven.
 
Much better and scarier than Dead Space, good atmosphere. The camera isn't sluggish and not as close. Combat also seems more responsive, and melee is somewhat possible. The 'Force' is useful, though sometimes the item you're holding disappears.
