Sid Meier's Pirates! Icon
Enjoyed it once
by Neil Walls, England - Jun 26th 2009

Loaded and played the game once - looked good. Second time MacBook just ejected the DVD and haven't been able to play since. Feral were good in trying to solve but finally gave up and recommended re-installing OS.

Simplistic & boring
by Marc-Julien Verfuerth, Germany - Jun 22nd 2009

This game is indeed easy to learn and step in quick, as some others commented, but those are already the only two advantages of it - overall, it's just very boring, and I wonder how anybody could dare to sell such a simple game which becomes routine already after ca. 1hr, for 39 US$??? I can not recommend this software to anybody. Even doing nothing is more interesting that playing this game!

Fashion Finder Folly
by Lynn Peterson, USA - Jun 21st 2009

I have to agree with the other review. This is nothing but advertising wrapped in "game" which isn't really one. Not only that, but I was appalled that they even had a "find the furs" area! I decided to check it out to see if it was perhaps "faux fur" but no. What a horrific turn off. Into the trash it went after that.

Compelling Graphics, Easy Play
by Cathleen Cooper, USA - Jun 20th 2009

I enjoyed the visual effects but the puzzles were simple and repetitive, and I finished the game in an evening.

Jewel Match Icon
Nice, Relaxing Play
by Cathleen Cooper, USA - Jun 20th 2009

I play this in relaxed mode to unwind after a stressful day at work. The graphics are attractive, the wind chime sounds of the jewel sets breaking is lovely, and the sound track with peaceful garden sounds (and, I swear, the background sound of someone in deep, relaxed sleep) is very nice. After a while, the puzzles and strategies are repetitive but that does not take away from my enjoyment of this game.

Azada Icon
Easy with one Reservation
by Cathleen Cooper, USA - Jun 20th 2009

I enjoy seek-and-find games, so Azada fits the bill there. Is rather simple, but that is OK because I play these kinds of games to unwind. However, one problem for me was a stressful little session with a robot that required quick responses-not relaxing at all, and I probably would not have purchased this game if I knew there were any quick play items in it.

Not worth it
by Linzy Elliot, USA - Jun 18th 2009

This game has great cartoon stye graphics and music but was too easy and way to short. It was like a rip off of Age of Empires with much less freedom. You cant do anything but complete scenarios. Play the demo its kinda fun but not worth the price at all.

It never gets old
by Sybil McDonald, USA - Jun 16th 2009

This is one of the few Time Management games I've played that never gets old. I've replayed the career mode 5 times now and there are 2 other modes that are just and entertaining. The music is just as good (if you're into jazz). The graphics are simple but unique which add to asthetics as well.

Terrible
by Marlon Souren, Netherlands - Jun 16th 2009

Did anyone test-play this? Its impossible to get any further than the fire-ball stage (which is practically at the beginning). Thank you Mac Games Arcade for allowing us to try out a game before buying. Don't buy!

So much fun for 34 year old dad
by Daniel Phillips, USA - Jun 16th 2009

As an adult, must games I purchase are only played few times and I give up from boredom after that. They just don't hold my interest. This game is different. I thoroughly enjoy playing this game. I just wish this was a native app on Mac and not a Cider port. But, nevertheless, it was a fantastic purchase.

Fashion Finder folly
by Heather Cuthill, Canada - Jun 16th 2009

Don't bother. The game doesn't offer anything high-level in the way of graphics, game play or difficulty. And besides that, it's pitching products to you on every screen. How many MARIE CLAIRE magazines can you find? How many CARESS BODY BARS are in the scene? (Any guesses who's behind the development of this one?)

Please! If you're going to create a game that is nothing more than thinly disguised advertising, you shouldn't have the balls to ask people to pay for it.

Relaxing, Simple, Entertaining
by Faisal Haji, Canada - Jun 15th 2009

The title implies everything. The game is relaxing, simple, and easy to pick up. It is enjoyable too, especially if you work or go to school all week and you want to enjoy a nice game. The beauty of this game is that it still runs even if the game isn't. Try the demo before buying, your taste might be different than mine.

Civilization III Complete
by Robert Hiltner Jr, USA - Jun 15th 2009

I liked the gamed, but I've stopped playing it because the game editor didn't come with the Mac version. I owned a PC a number of years and found that I got many more hours of entertainment from playing scenarios I created with the editor that came with the PC version of the game. I'm not happy with the lack of support for Aspyr's games.
