    "The exploration and building game Colonization is my all time favorite! Once I started playing I could not stop and thought I would never find something I enjoyed as much. However, on the recommendation of a friend I decided to try Alpha Centauri and I am SO glad I did. This game is amazing! I even got my husband, who is a self-described game hater, hooked on this game because it is so addicting and so much fun! A must try for both game and nongame lovers!"

    "Eufloria HD is a fun little game to play around with, but it couldn't keep my attention for long. There was plenty to explore and building was fun, including the level of customization you have in deciding where to place everything, but after a while it starts to feel repetitive."

    "World of Warcraft is a classic MMORPG that I have played and loved off-and-on for years. Unfortunately, it's not the kind of strategy game that I have been looking for. This is simply does not satisfy my desire for building and exploration."
