The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom

Great game... when it works, which is where the problem comes in. For the first week I couldn't play it all, it simply would not connect to the server, and without a constant internet connection... TO THE SERVER, the game will simply exit. That issue appeared to have cleared its-self up, now after playing 4 levels of the campaign, all I get is a message saying Server Error: Failed to load Map - the game then has to be force quit as all that is available is a black screen and a cursor. When it does work, it is amazing. Great graphics, good sound, classic Settlers play with lots of options. HOWEVER, as it doesn't work for single player campaign anywhere close to reliably (it has been 5 days now and I still get the Map Failed to load and black screen of death... I will have to say give this one a miss until UBISoft works out some of it's server issues. When it does, then go for it you won't be disappointed, until then, give this one a miss. You will only end up being frustrated and feeling ripped off at not being able to play the game you payed for.

terrific and absorbing

This is a game that will make your brain happy! The peaceful, gentle music, lovely atmosphere and the challenge of these puzzles make time pass unnoticed. Well worth your time and money.

Eden's Quest: The Hunt for Akua

original and fun

nice challenging puzzles, nice graphics and pleasant guiding through the game.

Not too easy but help when you really need it. A bit too expensive though, but i'm not sorry buying it.

Fishdom - Frosty Splash
 – 

just clean fun

I coulnd't stop playing this game. I agree that it is a pity the backgrounds on the aquariums don't change.

But it is just a lot of fun, well, I just really like aquariums I guess. And the fishies are so cute.

Fun!

I enjoyed this game so much. Took me quit some time to finish it. Then played it once more. I don't often do that with these kind of games. Worth every dollar.

yawn

I had no patience to finish this game. it looks nice and has a lot of humor, but the system to play it is terrible.

I resent that I coulnd't try out this game (no demo version) and paid way too many $$ while I don't even like it anough to finish it. grmbl.

Dream Pinball 3d

I agree with the other reviews on this game. It doesn't run at all on my macbook and there is no explanation why. I was able to get it to run on my Imac but it is bulky and I was acutely aware that this was not the best pinball game available for macs. Don't waste your money on it.

Empress of the Deep: The Darkest Secret
 – 

Flawless adventure. Best adventure iHOG in ages

Assumed this would be like all the others. Wrong. THis was a journey. The music and graphics the mystery. Awesome. Played with my boyfriend for 4 hours and simply loved it. Adn when it comes down to it we are there for the hidden objects and puzzles and we loved them both. We only wished it had been longer.. but that is not worth less than 5 stars. Keeping an eye out for the next one. (We both were very happy to see those words to be continued)

very dissapointing!

Nice graphics. But That's about all the nice i've got on this game. not challanging, the mini games are no fun at all. the story is lame and with a frustrating end.

World War 2: Time of Wrath
 – 

World War II: Time of Wrath

Version 1.61 was released in February, and it seems to have fixed the freezing bug reported earlier by others. At least I did not experience the bug, and I completed the ten-turn Poland scenario. This is a good addition to the small number of hexagon-based, my-turn your-turn games available for the Mac. All of the elements that WW II buffs look for are here: decisions requiring tradeoffs between upgrades, replacements, and technology; different types of land, sea, and air units; and supply, production and weather rules that must be factored into decision-making. There are tactical tricks to learn depending on terrain, weather, and types of units. The map can either be realistically rendered, or rendered in the colors and grid of a classic hexagon-based board game. The unit sprites are muddy but the optional NATO-style symbols are clear as a bell. The interface is not as user-friendly as the Slitherine/Freeverse release "Commander: Europe at War," but unlike CEAW the map in "Time of Wrath" does allow one to zoom very close in as well as to zoom way out. Naval warfare is abstracted; fleets are assigned to various types of missions and the computer resolves encounters depending on the types of enemy fleets, convoys, etc. that a player's fleet encounters. Fans of the genre will like "Time of Wrath" - assuming that the freezing bug that others experienced earlier really is a thing of the past.
