    "The game is okay - it allows you to play with your favorite NBA teams, but the players need to be updated. As in updated to their current team! The controls and game play are great, playing H2H is awesome, but I just cannot get past the rosters being left behind for so long. "

    "Minecraft has come a long way from the old days but this edition does what it does best and immerses the player into worlds that only your mind can limit you how far you want to take it or create the way you want to. Full of options and upgrades if you want more. Both of the versions are pretty spot on with gameplay but i feel the mac version is a little smoother but not by much. "

    "Fun game that I totally get lost in when I'm playing and lose track of time. Reminds me a bit like City Skylines, but underground. You have to lay tracks and maintain a subway system as your commuter population grows. Seems simple but it's so in-depth."

    "Monument Valley has surreal architecture as well as fascinating lanes to traverse. In addition a number of secret places to visit, but it doesn't have 2 player capability sadly. If you wanna play solo though, it's worth the look."

    "I am a big fan of racing games on the Android. I typically stick to the more traditional racing games where the games are based on real cars. With Riptide GP, it provided a pleasant change for me. The game was so good that my best friend and I play it together a lot. You won't find a multiplayer experience like this in the racing game genre or in other arcade games. I am on the edge of my seat while playing this game."
