Not much here you need a powerful PC for. If you enjoy flight sims I'd go for Wings Over Flanders Fields version2. Online multiplayer, realistic FPS, then Red Orchestra 2, ARMA 3 or Verdun. Graviteam Tactics Mui Front for a tactical wargame that looks great to.

Here your PC's cpu will be the thing that will get some work. Gary Grigsby War in the East or War in the West I expect like good CPU's.

Matrix has a pretty vast library of games available, so we need some background on what kind of games you've played before (board and/or PC), and more importantly what kind of games you enjoy the most. Also are you a beer and pretzel gamer or do you like the massive campaigns that can take months or years to complete.

Welcome to the forums, if you're an old time board wargamer settle in and make yourself comfortable, you've found your new home online.

Jim

First off, Matrix Games is known for computer war games. Typical Matrix war game has hex map and some counters on it that represent units. If these sort of games are new thing for you, I recommend you following games:
Battle Academy series - relatively simple tactical scale combat in Second World War
Panzer Corps & Unity of Command - operational scale war games, both are quite easy to learn and get into
Pandora - colonize & conquer alien world far away from Solar System

Mentioned War in the East/West are expensive, heavy end monster games. I don't dare even touch them. Matrix offers other sort of games too, but those are dwarfed by war related games. If you want more info about given games, click on products link upper-right, enter game title on the search field, and you'll find game related page on this site. YouTube has videos for many of the games. Simply type let's play * where * is game title.

If you want a great tactical WW II game, get combat mission: Final Blitzkrieg.

If you are looking for something a little different without a lot of study Quadriga is a trip back in time to chariot racing.

+1 ... Nice review Jim.

CMFB is very enjoyable and stable so far ...

If looking for lower spec games but very fun - check out TOAW 3 and / or Field of Glory ... I am liking them a lot lately ...

We are a publisher and only sell our games. If you're looking for web games you're in the wrong place ;)

I'm guessing you don't have any interest in military or strategy gaming.

No need to post links to irrelevant web games if you find them as they would only be deleted.
