@Gantic This is harder than I thought... What is there left to explain though? I told you what I think it needs to get a perfect score. Therefore explaining myself... What do I need to explain? :P

Never mind Sonny: I've just done an essay-sized comment-review on Army of Ages. Here we are (sorry if the paragraphing's weird; it's formatted for the comment box):
Okay, this is quite fun. I like the improvements it makes on Age Of War. For a start, I like how you have the 4 buildings behind your fort that auto build units.
It means that you can leave the screen for a few minutes and come back with enough money to buy Switzerland.
That said, it does seem a bit silly that a pile of tank parts in your back yard can magically cause a tank to pop out of your bunker's garage.
And one fundamental flaw it fails to improve upon is the way it DRAGS. You can't really lose without going through a lot of difficulty, but can't win either.
This means that you have a loooong period of just sitting there with nothing to do. Which sucks. I know about grinding, but this is just too much.
The music is fun for a few repeats but quickly becomes immensely tedious. Far too repetitive. The audio for the intro is laughably out of sync.
There's no room for upgrades until the Space Age; everything gets replaced. The specials are useless until you can't advance further.
The Space Age is also the longest part because you simply stagnate. What I loathe with all these games is that there's only one future age. More ages would be sweet.
The turrets suffer the same issues as the upgrades: they'll just have to be replaced, so why bother?
All in all, focus the content around the future a bit more, add different music for different ages and you have a deal. I rate it 8.5/10.

I give this game a solid 7.
I like how this game gives a positive piloting experience!
The fun is wrapped into flights and the terrain shows the wide spread places your plane flies. The hardness of the game helps the thirst for the GREAT touchdown. The game gives troubles like gears jam and it helps bring the great thrill for adventure trying to land! The game gets better as you upgrade your plane and make it easier to control. I think this game should be one of the Top games on this site and I believe that because of the difficulty it has a lower rank. I highly encourage everyone to experience this epic flight simulating game and I hope you can touchdown. Keep trying and have fun in this 7/10 (for me) GAME! It is very difficult because most flights end in disaster because the p,lane is so hard to land so that brings it down 3 notches.

The controls: are easy to use and if you are in a pinch hit p for pause The great thing is they are spread far and wide, but they are easy to use! This contributes to the realness of having a real dashboard!

This game truly sucks you in because It keeps you wanting to fly and earn your pay! The game graphics easily sweep you into the realism of the game and epicness of the plot to get your passengers to safety and not having them all dead or hurt which is hard to do just makes the plot even better. The smoke and the great sounds make the experience very awesome. To really experience this game you need to spend a good deal of time on it! great game and Play on.

I know what it means! I saw it on his bio, checked out the previous episodes and loved it, so I remembered it. Oh yeah, I guess you might want to know what it is then, very well. It stands for: I Want To See Your Mental Poop

@Nerdsoft Format it like normal.
@Blackbeltr0 You have a comma in plane for no reason.
P2 L1 I don't know why you added the colon after "The controls".
P2 L1 You're missing a period.
P3 L1 "It" is capitalized for no reason.
P3 L5. Capitalization is all wrong in the last sentence.

@Blackbeltr0 Coolio. I think you're good to go.
@Mickeyryn First thing you have to do is to pick a game that is not under the MMO category and play it. When you finish playing it write your opinions about it. Write about what you liked about the game and why, what you didn't like and why, and how the game could be better.
