Armado Icon
A Good Try
by MasterK, USA - Jan 20th 2007

I really appriciate what Tricky Software is trying to do with Armado, however, I wish they had taken some more time to work out it's implementation. Tricky Software is trying to bring a classic platformer to mac, and it succeeds in many ways. However, it's gameplay is marred by several shortcomings. In the gamplay department, Armado is a jump and run side scroller-except that it is in 3D. This may sound good, and it is, to a point. Stomping enemies is great fun, but the combat is slow and erronious. You have to jump about a second too early in order to hit an enemy. Another low point is that it doesn't take full advantage of its 3D engine. Instead of taking the time to make a full 3D platformer, Armado can only move forward and backward, taking a lot of depth out of the game, and I was fully unaware of what most of the power ups did. Although there is combat, most of my deaths were caused by the slow erronious jump system. The level design is boring and repetitive do to the lack of possibilities afforded by the simple circular climbing aspect of the game. Ditto goes for the graphics, the 3D engine makes good colorful backgrounds, but going around in circles isn't veryfun to watch. The sound is, once again boring and repetitive, with a few effects and a quiet tune playing in the background. Overall, I am glad this game was made as a forray into mac. platforming, but for a real jump n' run, download Supertux absolutely free at mac game files instead of spending money on something worse.

Diner Dash 2: Restaurant Rescue Icon
Disappointed Again
by Jan St. John, USA - Jan 20th 2007

The original Diner Dash is lots of fun, but this is such a disappointment. The graphics are poor at best - heads, ponytails in white squares floating on their own. The action is sluggish and jerky. I can see why this was bundled with "Diner Dash-Flo on the Go" (equally as bad) and the original. This needs to go back to the designers for a makeover!

Diner Dash - Flo On The Go Icon
Disappointing

The original Diner Dash is lots of fun, but this is such a disappointment. The graphics are poor at best - heads, ponytails in white squares floating on their own. The action is sluggish and jerky. I can see why this was bundled with "Diner Dash-Restaurant Resue" (equally as bad) and the original. This needs to go back to the designers for a makeover!

Prey Icon
If the game is as good as the demo...
by Jeff Hellman, USA - Jan 20th 2007

Played the demo on a MacBook Pro and I have to say it is awesome in all respects. Adds some new ideas for both weapons and navigation. While there are some times when things get a little far afield of the gameplay itself, it does help to take a break now and then and let some blood circulate back into my hands.

Card flip
by Janice, USA - Jan 20th 2007

After upgrading to OS10.4.8 game action slowed remarkably. Card flipping sped up even after trying some mouse adjustments.

Age of Empires III Icon
Amazing, thrilling, creative
by Ann Deane, USA - Jan 20th 2007

Age of Empires 3 is a great game and has a basic story line taking you through 3 ages of fun and adventure. even when you beat the game you still can play in skirmish mode and play as the: turks, spanish, dutch, russian, england, french ect... the only bad part of this game is that it takes 64 VRAM to run and most people may have this but some people only have 32 (you should check under system profiler what your VRAM is). but if you had a chance between age of empires 3 and some other game you should chose this one!

Mystic Inn Icon
A diner dash with something extra
by Shanna Flaschka, USA - Jan 14th 2007

This is just like Diner Dash, but for the Harry Potter fans among us. Instead of just taking the order, you must fill it for the correct potion. One thing I LOVE is that you can queue you moves, up to four places.

The only thing I would like is the ability to choose the upgrades to the Inn, a la Diner Dash 2.

The Movies Icon
Beautifully Done
by Grant Schenk, USA - Jan 13th 2007

Yet another perfect port from Feral Interactive. The Movies will keep you entertained for many months to come as you quest for the perfect movie. If you are at all a lover of "Tycoon" type games, this one is for you. Download the demo and you will be hooked.

Diner Dash - Flo On The Go Icon
Sluggish action
by Katmacgamestore, USA - Jan 8th 2007

Somebody tell me it's not just me! I love this first Diner Dash and was excited to see this next version, but I'm about to ask for my money back because the movements become unbearably sluggish by the third round. The whole reason I can't continue is because Flo won't GO!! She's missing steps like throwing away dishes, so every step thereafter is for naught because her hands are full. It's frustrating.

Postal 2: Share The Pain Icon
Missing Level Editor
by BU2B, USA - Jan 8th 2007

It's true the game is only as violent as you play it... but it would be nice if the advertised LEVEL EDITOR "PostalED' was actually included! Once again... you own a Mac, you pay the same for the software as the PC version but get less! ARRGH!!!

Styrateg Icon
A Nice Strategic Game
by Mariah Turner, USA - Jan 8th 2007

Not the most challenging game on the market but, it's good game. The game itself is easy to understand and is pretty fast paced. It offers 3 levels of play (easy, average, and challenging) as well as a tutorial. For a novice gamer, it's an excellent choice. A more experienced player might not find it challenging enough.
The graphics aren't fantastic, but they are clear and easy to see.
Overall, I recommend this game for beginning gamers, but not so much for video game veterans.

Civilization IV Icon
Great Game, Needs Power
by MasterK, USA - Dec 28th 2006

Civilizations 4 is a wonderful, fun, immersive, addictive game that is a highly reccommended buy, if you have the system to run it. In this game, you run your civilization down to the nitty gritty. You can negotiate with leaders, explore on ships, discover science and settle the world, from the dawn of man to the space age. Every feature works perfectly, and the interface is great. Expanding borders is great fun, and although war is a key feature, this is also a simulation. However, this game has one big problem: system requirements. At first, I was knocked off my feet by its requirement of 3.5 GB of hard disk space, but I decided to order it anyway. To those with full disks, it actually only takes about 2.9 GB if you only drag the civ 4 folder to your hard drive. However, the game also requires a 64 MB graphics card. Although the graphics are decent, they are somewhat lacking in detail, and my 32 MB card was abe to handle almost every game I threw at it. However, if you really flip for this game, I found that my 32MB card could handle it, at the cost of scroll speed on the map and warrior animations in battle. I wouldn't approach it with a 16 MB. If you can run it, get it. If you can't, dont, but either way, this is a great, addicting, fun, easy to learn game that will appeal to everyone.

The Gimmicky Money Puzzle
by MasterK, USA - Dec 23rd 2006

Although the "cute" and "money " aspects are mostly gimmicks, the game is a lot of fun as a puzzler. You must match up rows of the same color and shape gem to blow them up. There is a generous distribution of power ups, and the push of the gems gives it an action-packed, fast paced feel, and makes it challenging and fun.
