This doesn't bode well for Dead Island.

Techland is very up and down. Call of Juarez was (apparently, didn't play it myself) decent, and Xtreme Rally was good.

Is Armada 2526 any good?
Meh.
I like Distant Worlds a whole lot better, but it is real time. I've heard Star Ruler has gotten better with patches.

Sad that a game with no redeemable qualities sells so well, and so many awesome games never break even.

Yeah, the demo is single player only. What I mean is that in the full game, the skirmishes that in the demo are single player only are really designed for co-op.

Does this expansion offer anything new for singleplayer gamers?

You can do the skirmishes as a single player, but they are intended as co-op. Download the demo and see if you like it; what it offers is what SP will be.

Most people don't even know what draconian means.

It's one of the neutral races in Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic, duh!
UbiSoft's DRM will turn you into a neutral race! Run!

Hey, your money!

I just felt it didn't add enough stuff: the campaign is linear and the same each time.

which would seem to fall in the 5/8 range, or a "Buy it if you REALLY like the genre).

I debated the score for longer than I should. You can certainly argue that it could/should have gotten a 5, but when I compared it to some recent games I did that got a 5, I enjoyed it less, so I scored it less. Don't let the score matter too much: just read the review and decide for yourself, as you did. Too many people put too much emphasis on scores these days, gamers and publishers alike. I just hope I put enough detail in the review so that people can say "what the hell...by what you said it should have gotten a 5 or 6!" and reach their own conclusions based on content, balance, and personal value.

My biggest decisions are usually between a 6 and a 7, since the latter gets you put on the 8/8 games page.

I'm surprised you haven't received offers of employment yet from some of the industry leaders

Not industry leaders, but every once in a while I get contacted by a smaller site asking if I want to work with them. Honestly, getting the games for free and setting my own schedule is worth not getting paid. I like playing new games and I like writing, so it's a win-win, though of course it'd be even better if I made money off of it

The first two or three levels of the campaign serve as a tutorial in the full version. What's in the demo?
