    World of Warships?! Pff, try Steel Ocean 🙂

  2. Nathum_AF 17/06/2016 at 11:35 -

    steel ocean is a bit broken due to u-boats
    so WoWs is better

  3. Cleru 18/06/2016 at 20:16 -

    RC @ 1 is fail due to “epic loot” update screwing with the progression of the players!

  4. RoboCraftSuxEpicTrash 21/06/2016 at 01:26 -

    How much did the devs at robocraft pay for this biased nonsense? Hell this entire list seems off. Well if you want to see just how horrible Robocraft is, check this out.
    http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198061736988/recommended/301520/

    If that is not enough, check all the recent reviews, the game is garbage, like 3 month old garbage and some hobos are sleeping in it, named freejam devs.

    I am sorry but I have to comment on the Robocraft article. How old is this article, you mention numerous things not even in the game anymore. This review looks to be at least a year old of an article yet you have it posted for June and Robocraft in first place? Anyone with the internet can examine these claims to readily see they are false and disingenuous. The game is actually in quite bad shape at the moment, in fact just yesterday there was a massive hacker fest, pushing the few straggling robocrafter holdouts, out and away from the game. Now I have to ask you, are the other reviews for these other games false and disingenuous as well?
