The RPG elements of this game are really well done - exploring the galaxy, meeting and interacting with other races, finding random items and trading them, or showing them to alien races in an attempt to discover what they do.

But the lander mini-game to harvest resources to repair and refuel your ship is more of a nuisance than a pleasure. It's fairly challenging to get right at first, but once you get used to it there are still planets where you come in way too hot and get unavoidably damaged due to the gravity or terrain. And even once you're good at it, it isn't enjoyable, just a chore.

So while a segment of the game is good, there's far too much of the rote lander upkeep missions to make the entire experience appealing to me.

Very intriguing, immersive, and "different". There was definitely love put into this game's world. The sequel takes the lore and "weirdness" even further. I definitely have a few favorite characters (including enemies who never speak).

Very addicting at first. Also, challenging until you get the hang of how the airport operations work. It's certainly worth a try if you're a fan of sim / management games.

10/10 If you have a pc you need this game its a classic you've never heard of.
Despite being categorized by critics as mediocre at the time of release, Mirror's Edge truly is a modern classic. The way you move through the game world by itself is engaging on its own. The game popularized first-person platformers on its own.
This game was truly fun - alas it suddenly stops as it was (possibly still is) unfinished. The developer promised to fix, more then a year later I've given up hope. Which is a pity, because the first half was a fun and unique experience.

For me this game fell somewhere between Legend of Grimrock and Legend of Grimrock 2 - not quite as good as the open-world of the second game, but Vaporum's voice acting made it more of an engaging experience than the original Grimrock.

A really beautiful, cohesive world which gives you very little of interest to do. There are elaborate systems for cooking, item construction, and such, but in practice they're just grinding; the same is true of combat. Not enough variance.
I don't know why so many people rag on this game. Great single player campaign, and a fantastic multiplayer experience. Holds up wonderfully years after its release, which is more than I can say for a lot of games.
Wonderful single-player mode as expected, and a surprisingly strong co-op mode as well. Great expansion of the universe from the original game. Strong design throughout. This game is frankly just about as close to flawless as any game can be.
One of the most unique games that you'll ever play. A wonderful blend of story told through an always-present narrator and beautiful music. There is just enough action to keep things interesting, but it's really not the main focus of the experience.
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.
I really wanted to like this game; it has an interesting setting and not-bad graphics, and the voice acting is decent. But the constant barrage of interrupting cutscenes, cliched characterizations, unreliable controls, and trite gameplay killed it.

Diablo II clone that is more grindy than fun. Endless repetitive enemies, slow progress, mountains of useless loot, and and terrible inventory system conspire to bore the player to tears. Setting is nice, but not enough to save this mess of a game.
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.

No Censorship
Uncensored tags
Steam reviews are becoming a closed and heavily moderated system. There are only ~300 tags shown to the general public, with anything they think is problematic for sales (like "Mobile port") vanishing from public view.
Full Steam game list
Steam hides store pages if there are copyright or other disputes surrounding the game (which is more frequent than you might realize), preventing you from curating these titles. We unhide and allow you to comment on them!
Stable platform
Over the past few years of Steam curation I've had hundreds of reviews just vanish without notification, and it often takes weeks for Steam Support to restore them. The 3rd time it happened was during a holiday sale, making my reviews useless for subscribers while the games were deeply discounted!
Easy import
Import your game library and friends directly from Steam in one click!
Easy filtering
Steam "deal" sites focus on prices, not on helping you find the game you really want before you look for a good price! Take our search page for a test drive!
