2017

„I love how it adds more RTS sensibilities to the mix, and even if the Early Access state is a little rough (there's placeholder art, and some pathfinding issues) I can see the potential.“

"Dropzone Preview – A Twist in the MOBA Formula", cgmagonline.com

„All in all, the whole package sits on a good engine with a large amount of challenge, meaning that it won't get old anytime soon.“

"Dropzone Preview", KeenGamer

2014

„Orcs Must Die!: Unchained feels promising. It’s lighter – more slapsticky – than some of the other games in the genre. [Read]“

Orcs Must Die! Unchained Closed Beta Impressions - Rock Paper Shotgun

„Orcs Must Die! Unchained doesn’t actually feel like it’s piggybacking, though. It feels more like an evolution of ideas Robot has been developing for years. [Read]

Orcs Must Die! Unchained Closed Beta Impressions - Rock Paper Shotgun

„But just looking through my starting hand it instantly became very clear that Hex is like nothing we’ve seen, especially as far as digital TCG’s go. Each ability and description had me more interested than the last. The cards in Hex are limited only by the creativity of the team making them. Which means there are no limits for Hex. It’s a new game with entirely new and unique cards made specially for the game.“

First Look: Hex: Shards of Fate, Connected – Digital World

„The title is still a work in progress, but on its current trajectory, Robot Entertainment has the potential to make a splash in the crowded MOBA space.“

“Orcs Must Die Unchained”, gameinformer

„At first glance though I'd say I'm cautiously optimistic that Sigils: Battle for Raios can pull off its lofty goals. [Read]“

“Hands-on with Sigils: Battle for Raios”, Pocket Gamer

„The game shows great visuals. Furthermore the mods and maps are a great deal for a weekend with friends and clan mates.“

Evonity-gaming.de about S.K.I.L.L. - Special Force 2

„SKILL provides rapid shooter gameplay with a large arsenal of weapons.“

Com! Das Computer-Magazin

2013

„S.K.I.L.L. - Special Force 2 is a valid free-to-play shooter which puts a lot of emphasis on community and clans.“

"S.K.I.L.L. – Special Force 2 Exclusive Review", F2P.com

2010

„Grown ups, though, should be prepared for that sceptical look when they start a quick game of Elsword during their lunch-break. But it might also happen, that their colleagues turn out to be secret teammates who would love to join. It’s tons of fun, playing together with others!“

Martin Deppe, GameStar.de

„[...] the company Gameforge that has its home in Karlsruhe has increased its revenue by 6000 percent in the last five years. Today more than 400 people work at the south german headquarters developing, operationg, marketing and supporting the browser games.“

Stephan Freundorfer, Spiegel Online

„One of the most successful German publishers of online games is Gameforge AG from Karlsruhe.“
