Excellent!

Love this game! Takes me back to my Mario playing days! Just challenging enough to not be a bore but not too challenging as to make me want to quit.

Deep Blue Sea Icon
Doesn't work with Lion or Mountain Lion
by ryem, USA - Jul 26th 2014

This was one of my all time favorite games. Lots of quick boards with great sound effects and fun icons. Unfortunately it does not function with operating systems past Snow Leopard. You can play, but it does not save your progress. I'm giving it 3 stars because it was a truly great game, but I'm not able to play it any more.

Civilization V: The Complete Edition Icon
A great strategy game
by LordofRutland, Canada - Jul 26th 2014

A great classic strategy game with many facets which results in complex decisions and outcomes. May be a bit hard to navigate and use at first but it is all learning.

Since the game is Steam, it will run on man platforms. I am running the game purchased here on a Win 7 laptop.

The Walking Dead: Season 2 Icon
It's still awesome
by GameGamer020, Australia - Jul 26th 2014

Season 2 starts a little slower than it did in season 1, although by the time episode 4 comes around, it becomes reminiscent of the first season with many gruelling decisions to be made. I highly recommend this game to anyone, it's an emotional rollercoaster adventure.

Great Game!
by Emily Brazel, USA - Jul 25th 2014

I love this game, honestly. It has a great plot, but it didn't earn five stars because once you complete the game (and it can be done rather quickly), there's nothing more to do. Granted, I've gone through 3 times and found journals the second and third time that I didn't find the first time I played through.

Overall, a great game. I highly recommend you buy it.

Europa Universalis IV Icon
Everything they said...
by PACKATK, USA - Jul 25th 2014

Is true, this is a solid game. The learning curve is a little steep. I've been playing it for a couple days and I've found, at times, I'm trying to figure out what to do next. Paying attention to the advisory tabs in the game help nudge you in the right direction, and luckily there is a ranking system so you know about how well you are doing as compared to other nations. Plus, just like any good strategy game, nothing that is done can't be undone by going to a previous save. If you're into evenly paced games that you can play on your terms (when you want to not when you need to) this is probably a pretty good choice. Not as much level of detail as Crusader King but more than CIV5… kind of has a not too hot, not too cold, but just right kind of feeling about it.

Oh, those of you wondering if your integrated video card will work… I have an Iris Pro on my iMac desktop with 1.5GB of VRAM… Mac Game Store says the game won't work on my computer… it works just fine at the highest video settings. So there's somewhat of a benchmark for you if you're on the fence because of that.

SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition Icon
About time this game is back!
by 1stMac, USA - Jul 25th 2014

This hands down is by far the best EVER Sim City game! It's not dumbed down to where all you do is plop buildings like some of the previous versions. It takes skill and planing. Now all we need is the fine folks at Simtropolis.com to start making more Mac compatible buildings.

Nightmare Realm: In the End... Icon
Great Graphics
by Mary Selle, USA - Jul 25th 2014

This game was a mixed bag for me. Some things I liked, some I didn't.

Although I usually hit 'skip' through the talking and action scenes, I didn't with this game. Parly because there was no skip function, but partly because the graphics were something else! Amazing colors and a bit of variety in the styles of the graphics, to boot.

The game itself was too short. I played by myself, in the most difficult mode, and still was done before I knew it. (Hit the blog only a coule of times.)

Very few HO scenes, which is probably why this is in the 'puzzle' genre, not the HO genre. The mini-puzzles ranged from yawn-done-this-before to, and I hate to admit it, a couple I had to skip.

So if you like storylines, graphics, and the opportunity to use a 'difficult' mode with no hints or sparkles, this is the game for you. If you like HO scenes and a good, long time of playing, this game isn't for you.

I really wanted to like this game...
by Kiah Beeman, USA - Jul 25th 2014

However, while the game itself is decent (not the best or most engaging tycoon sim I've ever played), the set-up is confusing, When I played, one of the buttons to exit a certain menu and progress with the tutorial was stuck behind the bar at the top left. I am pursuing a refund.

Farm For Your Life Icon
Pretty Fun, Unique Game
by Kiah Beeman, USA - Jul 25th 2014

This game is pretty fun, however once you find a cure for the zombies, they just keep coming. I was hoping eventually the population would all be cured or something. Luckily, you can turn zombies off, which I did to reward myself for curing them. This game is sort of like a mix between Diner Dash and your basic farming game, but with no time limits. You also have to barter with various characters.

Hypnosis Icon
Meh...
by Kiah Beeman, USA - Jul 25th 2014

It gets very old after a while, although the concept is pretty neat. I haven't actually finished it yet because it is so repetitive.

Best Virtual Villagers to Date
by Kiah Beeman, USA - Jul 24th 2014

I love the Virtual Villagers series and this one doesn't disappoint! It has great puzzles to unlock while you try to get the "heathens" to believe in you. One annoying thing is that red masked villagers, especially children, will frequently get in your way while you are trying to complete a task but you can usually use another villager to distract them and pull them away or use your god powers.

Virtual Families 2 Icon
Not as good as Virtual Families 1.
by Kiah Beeman, USA - Jul 24th 2014

This game is fun, but imo not as entertaining as its predecessor. The idea of renovating the whole house and having to buy basic furniture makes me think they went too much to the Sims side of things.
