    "Well Hawken has one thing going for it, it is technically free. The problem is that it is a FTP game where you pretty much need to pay to win, it's in early access meaning it is unfinished and may never be finished, and I lost all the things I did pay for in an update. Annoyingly the developer is ignoring my pleas for help so I cannot recommend you play this."

    "This is a pretty fun first-person shooter game. You have nine tactical classes to choose from which gives it a lot of variety and keeps it from becoming redundant and boring. I think the graphics could be a little better but overall I really enjoy it and it can be gotten for free. "

    "This is a terrible game. The graphics are terrible and you will feel very clunky trying to play the game. You can customize your character which is nice but you will get annoyed real quick with the game play itself."

    "Wow, it's been awhile since I played StarCraft. When I saw that I could download StarCraft Anthology for free I jumped all over it. It's one of my favorite classic games and can't be beat."

    "Honestly, PlanetSide 2 used to be a good game. And it's frustrating, because nothing about the game changed to make it less of one. But I really can't recommend it for newcomers. Having played it for a long time, I'm used to the meta in the game, but it's overwhelming for new players. Older competitive games become dominated by long-time players with years of experience, and if you're just starting out, the game unfortunately can feel quite impossible. You run facefirst into a vertical learning curve and don't really get the chance to figure out what you're doing wrong or learn from experimentation what does or doesn't work. Sorry, but if you're not into it already - find another free FPS."

    "Quake is one of the best PC games around. It has both single player and death match levels and you have to fight the fearsome Ogre and other monsters."

    "Spellweaver is a beautiful, interesting card game reminiscent of Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering, but does little differently from its predecessors. It may prove popular among those with lower-end machines or who want a newer game to try that can truly be played for free. "

    "If you pay money for a tank, they nerf it, which is what they did to the tanks i bought,not worth spending money on. Not to mention the game use ate up with hackers. Waste of time, enjoyable to start but still a waste of time. "
