It has some interesting concepts, if you like turn-based fantasy strategy games.

The only game I can think of offhand that was recently released that was even a PC exlusive is Shogun 2.

Just looking at Steam and Gamer's Gate for five minutes, I spy:
Shadow Harvest: Phantom Ops
Dawn of War II: Retribution
Fate of the World
Men of War: Assault Squad
Cities in Motion
1... 2... 3... KICK IT! (Drop That Beat Like an Ugly Baby)
Theatre of War 3: Korea
Europa Universalis III Chronicles
Revenge of the Titans
Atom Zombie Smasher
SpaceChem
RIFT
Darkest Hour
Dinner Date
Dungeons

Actually, if there wasn't a demo, you'd probably want the opposite of what you asked: "are there any people who haven't played Dungeon Keeper who played this?"

I didn't play Dungeon Keeper, and I did not care for Dungeons.

Out of Eight gives Atom Zombie Smasher a 5 out of 8 because he sucks at it?

Plus lacking online multiplayer and the randomized units and the small unit upgrades, but basically, yes.

I would, except I feel kind of bad about it because that's somebody's game.

But here is my only 1/8 score (I have had three 2/8 scores).

I try to avoid playing crappy games and I get to choose what I review, so usually most of my scores are on the high-ish end.

Trapped Dead review throwdown!

P.S. I might have been generous with a "3".

Who the hell buys a computer for $1500? A decent motherboard, CPU, RAM, and video card upgrade cost me under $500.

Actually, it registered a 9.0-9.1 on the moment magnitude scale (Mw), which is what they use now, since the Richter scale is inaccurate for large or deep earthquakes. The media just latches onto the "Richter scale" name even though it hasn't been used in years.

Moment magnitude uses three main factors: strength of the rock, surface area of the rupture, and amount of displacement. The amount of displacement calculation involves a triple integral, for those with Calculus 3 experience.

And now you know!

Based off the comments I've read here (not exactly the most fair and balanced place in the world, but still a sample size), methinks the PC Gamer review is a bit off.

Thanks. An 8/8 score does not denote perfection, just maximum enjoyment
Despite the issues you mention, the game is a heck of a lot of fun; the ArmA of RTS games.

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.
