Aliens come to ruin an already-ruined earth.. which also already has aliens.

Quite an excellent game.

The Koreans invade the United States, and you are a freedom fighter who hides behind invulnerable cover in an on-rails playable cutscene.

alt-F4 as soon as I was placed in a "home base" which forced me to RP-walk everywhere. Inexcusable.

A combined first-person shooter and tower-defense game.

Seems pretty cute, but I hate tower defense games which have multiple entrances.

A space simulator fps thingy.

While it looked quite good at a glance, when actually trying it it fell flat. When a game cannot lean on cutting-edge technology, it has to have solid gameplay. It didn't feel good at all to me. I guess No Man's Sky - (2016 game) spoiled me.

Explore, survive, gather and trade while making your way to the galactic core.

Every single described goal of this game has failed. It is a bad flight-simulator, with bad crafting, bad technology, and bad survival mechanics. It is set on procedurally generated planets so vast that nothing matters, in a procedurally-generated universe so vast that nothing matters. What's worse is that it is so godawfully crowded with hand-holding that it becomes both easy and repetitive. Being ugly and with abysmal performance, it's not even an exploration time-waster.

Perhaps in some years they will change/fix many of its issues, but I believe it has a fundamental casualness to it that anchors its core gameplay problems. This is not a game made for gamers[doesn't exist].

2017-05-07 update: I tried it again, and it just isn't worth it. If its graphics were the same as before (they're busted now) then maybe. I have another video card but I'm not going to swap things around or fiddle with installing an old version of my card's drivers. I just don't want to bother any more.

Shoot stuff and things.

I played the open beta. I found it fun, but not worth money. When I was given it for free a while later, I didn't find it all that great.

A zombie-survival first person shooter that I played the hell out of until late-2015. It still had a very active player base.

A terrible FPS semi-roguelike game.

Procedurally-generated levels. Extraordinarily unfairly unnecessarily hard. Not fun at all.

I ended up getting a refund.
