Fun, but diminishing returns

This game is a blast for the first few hours. The music is enjoyable, the artwork is beautiful. By hour two or three, you'll be contemplating quitting your job and moving to somewhere tropical to see if you can be a real marina tycoon. The flaw with this game is not that it becomes more complex, it's that there's no way to automate or delegate low level tasks and it becomes unmanageably hectic. You literally can't navigate to the things that require your attention fast enough.

Best game ever!

I'm not kidding! This is my ultimate favorite game. It's a pure classic that has multiple endings and ways to play. You can become a captain of a gigantic trading fleet, pirate, politician, slave and/or soldier for one of the many races. There are many space ships available and much more downloadable along with hundreds of ship outfits and weapons.

As a bonus, when you download this game, which is the third in the Escape Velocity trilogy, you can download the first two games for free as expansions. Also awailable: user made total conversions of the game for free online (new systems, plots, ships, weapons, endings... everything new). Everyone can add to this one. Have fun!

Really?

Is this the best the platform has to offer?

Gamehouse, make sure that you have those all ages splattered up against the game,

PS. also no over 13's allowed, bad rehash of a classic

Zuma's Revenge

I was excited to try this new release, as I've enjoyed Zuma Deluxe very much. However, Zuma Deluxe will only run from an Administrator's account, even though it wasn't released until 2007! So, if anybody other than the Administrator wants to play this game, they can't!

Zuma's Revenge goes one step beyond that by only being written for the Intel processor, thereby eliminating my computer's ability (I have a G5) to run it. I'm glad I downloaded the trial version first, as I didn't see the machine specific requirements right away, and I almost bought it!

What a shame that they don't simultaneously write this for both platforms.

Good for the price

This game was fairly engaging and took me about 8 hours to finish. At $10 that is worth the price! Some of the puzzles were really easy and some had me completely stumped. Overall a good game.

Pretty good!

Like Christopher, I bought this game for I really liked Aerobiz back in the day and I too was not disapointed.

Learning the ropes in this game can be pretty tough but you'll get the hang of it soon enough.

For me the cartoony style of the game is a necessity because running an airline and dealing with breakdowns and sabotage incidents can be very frustrating at times - the comedy reliefs the player of that frustration.

It's also a big plus for me that this game has low system requirements - I can play it on my 2002 Mac Cube G4! :)

Righteous Kill 2

A good introduction to this genre of play

I have never played the original and thought this game looked fun. The storyline is engaging and the different locations and mini games are good and break same of the monotony of repetitive tasks. If you've never played this sort of Hidden Object (HO) game, I think this game makes a great introduction to the genre, but more experienced players may find it too short and the challenges not as complex as other titles in this genre.

Righteous Kill 2

Nothing new

This was just like the first Righteous Kill, just a basic HO game. The storyline is more engaging, and the way the game moves from location to location on the map is nice, but too much of the same activity over and over.

I've never been motivated to write a review before, but this game was great! Warning....very addicting! This was a challenging game and just a lot of fun. Even after you finish, you will want to go back and do it again.

Good fun game - but needs Intel Mac

I bought this game to run on my old PowerPC G4, and it was OK - a little stuttery due to the processor speed, but playable - but there's a bug that means that after a while saved games cannot be restarted, which is terrible news after spending a few hours battling bugs and baddies! However, I've now bought an Intel Mac and it runs like a dream - smooth and clean - and the old saved games will now restart.

So, buy the game ... but only if you're running an Intel Mac!
