I think It might have benefited from some scenario missions. Something contained and scripted. But, still worth a purchase.

An actual Pay-to-win model. They have fucked it.Reply

This is probably a bit hasty in fairness. Yes, it crosses a qualitative line into microtransactions affecting gameplay, but unless the impact of these mods is massive - which I doubt, given their descriptions - I wouldn't call it 'pay-to-win'.

It really REALLY reminded me of SWTOR. Everything was cookie cutter and designed to waste time. It really is a shame.

Tropico 5 review snippet Does Tropico 5 reward political manouvering?
Shifting which political factions had ascendancy over the various time periods was the only time I felt that politics were involved at any meaningful level.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim review snippet Is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim grindy?
I wouldnt say so. The levelling up process is just an invisible byproduct of doing things. I was barely aware of the level up system.

Total War: Attila review snippet How well does Total War: Attila portray ancient Rome?
The absolute chaos of the time is perfectly portrayed. The world is so up in the air and you cannot predict whats gonna happen. In my game the Elba (Irish) ended up holding most of Spain. The Vikings went on a crazy rampage through to the Ukraine. Britain remained in the hands of Romano-British upstarts and then to top it off, The Vandals just hung out in Egypt for the entire game. That was just the first game i played...

Team Fortress 2 review snippet How good are the graphics in Team Fortress 2?
Style and longevity over Hyper realism and poor coding. They are great, but not in the traditional sense.

Game Dev Tycoon review snippet How does Game Dev Tycoon run on your PC?
Smooth as butter. Almost a mobile game. Will run on a calculator. Window mode is perfect, UI scales with window resizing. Zero loading times.
