Tremendous strategy game with very unique mechanics and high addiction factor. Once you have played through the missions, there are tons of high-quality fan-made maps. You don't need Creeper World 1 or 2 to enjoy this game. Linux-friendly.
 
All the adorable little graphics of evil gap-jawed aliens were great. Many many different things to upgrade and try out. However, the core tower defense thing was pretty ordinary, and the game is way too unforgiving of money mismanagement.
 
Fairly fun indie game, though I wish the Princess Rush game mode didn't allow players to steal from each other - it changes the tone a bit. Aside from that it's a surprisingly difficult, yet enjoyable play. Does suffer from some crashing issues.
 
This is a weird mix of MMO leveling and FPS, and in a certain aspect it works okay, but at other times it can be frustrating.

The beginning of this game includes a lot of scripted sequences, which can be a bit annoying if you play through multiple times, as was intended (you reach level 35 or so on the first playthrough, 50+ on the second). The first time playing it seems incredibly smooth and well paced, teaching you all your necessary skills painlessly.

The game itself isn't hard - I was level 13 before I died the first time - but after a while it gets annoying to take headshots and not actually kill the enemy, like a normal FPS. This is due to the level mechanic - killing an enemy one level above you is difficult, and two is nearly impossible. The exception is playing the tank/melee character, who has a special ability that flattens higher levels with ease.

There is also a melee enemy class known as Psycho that has an annoying tendency, when injured, to run full tilt at you holding a hand grenade above their heads. Many times when this happens they are inescapably close, which results in your instant death.

Lastly, the bosses tend to take 3-10 minutes for a solo player to slowly tear through their massive health pools - almost like fighting an MMO raid boss on your own. Almost every boss also has a group of annoying normal enemies to dispatch during the beginning of the fight as well. These encounters are probably much more suited to the co-op gameplay.

Overall a mixed bag, fun in certain aspects, but also one of the few games that makes me feel angry when I play it. That's a sure sign the enemies aren't quite as balanced as they should be.

Why use Truth In Gaming?
Unique Search
Multiplayer with friends
Want to play a multiplayer or co-op game with friends, but don't know which ones you have in common? Friend search will instantly show which games everyone in the group already owns - and even filter them further by genre!
Play your games
Have a big game library, but can't find anything to play? You can limit your searches to just the games you own, while still using all the fancy search filters.
Steam Holiday Sales
Have you noticed the Steam Summer/Winter sales constantly feature the same games on the front page year after year? We let you easily filter by year, discount, and rating, blocking unwanted items with a single click.
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!
Convenience
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!
Good games
Our goal is to help you find the best games for you, supporting good devs whether they're huge studios or nimble indies. We don't play favorites for the big money publishers.
