The Three Musketeers Icon
I liked the Windows version!
by RJ, USA - Jan 28th 2010

This game is a lot of fun. They do a nice job of turning the book (although I admit to not having read it at all recently) into a game. I really liked being able to own and ride horses as well as equipping weaponry, armor, etc. in traditional RPG manner. I have only played it on Windows but assuming the Mac version is up to the same standard, would recommend it.

Avernum 6 Icon
Another great installment in the excellent series
by John Michael Croft, USA - Jan 28th 2010

Jeff Vogel has been creating CRPGs for more than a decade. Avernum VI is the latest installment of the long-running story of young adventurers exploring a unique underground world in crisis. Avernum is where the despotic empire long stuffed those people it did not want or could not control. In past installments one could fight the wars between the Empire and Avernum or the underground races and the struggling people. In Averum VI, the lizardlike Slith race is attacking while at the same time Mushrooms, the staple foodsource of the underworld, is falling to a blight.

Can you stop these twin threats to life underground? You start as simple soldiers and guards amd can either develop into the heroes of Avernum, or die.

Vogel's detailed, logical storylines, gigantic, highly detailed world and challenging tactical gameplay shine through and make this a game you can't finish in one sitting, but look forward to returning to play as soon as work, school and sleep allow.

Avernum 6 Icon
An excellent and very detailed game
by istara, Australia - Jan 28th 2010

Avernum 6 is an incredibly detailed and in-depth role playing game. You play as a party of four members, which you can customise as you like (all fighters, all spellcasters, or a mix). You have to solve dozens of quests as well as numerous optional side quests.

There is masses of treasure to find all over the extensive game world. The storyline is really unique.

Guns of Icarus Icon
Pretty Good
by Joel R. Porte, USA - Jan 25th 2010

Cool game and concept. In my opinion, the hard levels are too hard. I couldn't get through them. It would be nice if there was a little more balance to some of the guns...

Shaman Odyssey - Tropic Adventure Icon
Beautiful but Disappointing
by GoBecky, USA - Jan 23rd 2010

I was excited to see that the game let me play in full 1920x1200 resolution, and in the hour demo made it seem like each level would be increasingly challenging.

Unfortunately, after purchasing the full game, I saw that the rest of the game, after the tutorial lessons, was extremely repetitive. The levels did not increase in difficulty, and I didn't have to replay a single level to move on. I finished the whole game in about 4 hours, and replay value is virtual nonexistant. You can replay levels to try to get a gold medal on each, but unfortunately, there's absolutely no guidance on how to get a better medal - is it time-based? point-based? - and no indication what kind of progress you're making towards the goal while you're playing.

FATE Icon
Fate
by Joe Slavinsky, USA - Jan 23rd 2010

I love this game, and play it on a mini, and I've had very few problems. The one exception, is that I cannot "map" spells to my "F" keys, or anywhere else. I've got a new Apple keyboard, and I've looked on the web, and in the reviews here, but I don't find any mention of this problem. If anybody has any ideas, I'd appreciate some help. Other than that, I've played more than 35 hours, and I'm at level 44, and getting my butt kicked by the swarm surrounding the "boss". I'd love to be able to use multiple spells, but can't.

Shaman Odyssey - Tropic Adventure Icon
Good Fun for the price
by David Moh Yii Tah, Singapore - Jan 22nd 2010

Quite a complete game, with cute graphics and some very unique potions to mix.

The things you do may be repetitive, but the variations within each activity and the number of levels keep it going.

Wishlist: Expansion set!

Hidden Wonders of the Depths Icon
I got a little bored
by Millner, USA - Jan 22nd 2010

Downloaded this game and only got half way through the second level. The mini games were repetitive and I lost interest. Some might like it, but just not for me. You stay within the same screen the entire time. Not my preference.

Fantastic Farm Icon
Enjoyable
by Millner, USA - Jan 22nd 2010

Very enjoyable. Game play was fast and decent graphics. The whole "magic" doesn't really interfere with the farming which I liked. Good music. You also get to have animals and different machines to turn your crops into food. Try it out!

Mystery Case Files: Madame Fate Icon
Love love love
by Millner, USA - Jan 22nd 2010

I love this game. It's one of the best hidden object games out there. The graphics are amazing which allows you to really get into the story. The different side show freaks along the way are very well done. The game is a little bit eerie which is a nice change from the cheesy seek and finds you normally get. Bottom Line: play this challenging game. It won't disappoint.

Azada: Ancient Magic Icon
Weak
by Larry McDonald, USA - Jan 21st 2010

The challenges are repetitive and, unlike the original, they don't actually get much harder as the game continues. Not even in the ballpark with the original... worth maybe half the price.

Azada Icon
Great Variety
by Larry McDonald, USA - Jan 21st 2010

The variety of challenges is excellent and the increasing levels of difficulty are welcome and worth the work... and let me just say: thank god for online cheats!
