Jewel Quest 4: Heritage

This Jewel Quest has e few very exciting new variations in the game. The first round, 'till the top of the tree, is very nice, surprising sometimes and not that hard. In the second, expert round it gets really challanging.

Garantees many many hours of fun, sometimes frustration, and victory!

Loved it!

It took me almost 6 hours to get through the whole thing but I could have made it last for days. Cool story and a good variety of puzzles. More sophisticated than the average object finding game. Even the music didn't bother me and I almost always end up turning the music off in games. No voice acting but I can understand why. It's a Russian game and it probably would have cost a fortune to do voice acting in other languages. I was also surprised at how good the English text was. Really like this game and it's definitely worth the $10.

Commander: Europe At War

The price of war just got lower

I fell victim to paying $50 for this game only to have the price drop to $24.95 very shortly there after. That aside, the game is quite addictive but as mentioned in a previous review, the replay value isn't all that high. You'll find that after you complete the game once, the second time you play it you will be able to complete it, under the same settings, in half the time. The learning curve is low compared to say... Hearts of Iron and will have you enjoying yourself rather quickly. However, for all the military strategists out there - the absence of actual commandable artillery units and paratroopers is somewhat undesirable and leaves gamers, especially those that are looking for historical accuracy, feeling like something is missing. All in all, yes, Commander: Europe at War appears to be an updated version of Panzer General with a few added features, such as rail transport and the dreaded Soviet Winter and also a few things missing as I've mentioned earlier. When the game was priced at $50 I would have said "Give the demo a try" but for $24.95 what do you have to lose except for maybe Moscow or Berlin.

Jewel Quest 4: Heritage

This is a great game that gives you hours & hours of game play. It does go up the family tree from easy to medium to difficult & you can't skip ahead if you haven't beaten that particular game, but this is one of the things that makes it challenging. Like previous Jewel Quests, upon completion of all levels in normal mode, Expert Level is unlocked & you have the entire family tree to do again with different game boards that are quite challenging, but if you get stuck here, you are able to skip around and play any game you wish & go back to the others when you please. I have yet to complete Expert mode, but am really enjoying playing. Well worth the money!

Fun little game

I enjoyed this game. The challenges are balanced, and it contains a number of elements that make the "Build-A-Lot" formula more interesting (citizens to help, monsters to kill before they damage your buildings, food to collect). The story and characters are cute but be warned - the plot does not contain any real ending. It is a flagrant set-up for a sequel, with a cliffhanger ending. I always find that kind of annoying, as I did here. Also, the grammar and spelling are terrible; it is as if no one ever proofread the game at all. However, gameplay is smooth; I didn't experience any bugs or anything. Overall, glad I bought it.

Heartwild Solitaire 2

So addictive, have never tried any card games but this is fantastic. Can see it keeping me busy for a long time so well worth the money. Not like other games that you finish in a couple of hours then never use it again.

Don't Like This Game

Well I guess I will have to be the one to spoil this game's 5 star rating. I play HO games to relax most of the time. I don't play them to get frustrated. I never even made it in the gate. I spent the 1st 28 minutes of the trial trying to get in the gate. I just gave up. I didn't appreciate the fact that when I tried to skip the puzzle when that kept coming up, it wouldn't let me do it. When I was finally able to use the hint again, It just kept giving me to same information. I'm glad I played the demo so I glad I didn't waste my money on this.

Warbirds: Dogfights

If you enjoy crashing...

I also wish I had read reviews. I have asked for a refund and, thankfully, purchased through PayPal - so there's hope. About the game:

It was just the flight sim I was seeking as a WWII airplane buff. But this game is a piece of c*$p. Extremely complicated controller setup and menus. Even though it recognizes my controller (Logitec ATK3) it will not work. Plane won't even take off. If you use auto mode, plane takes off, but will suddenly fall into spin and crash. Very frustrating. What a waste. Don't buy this game.

I'll be seeking refund through PayPal.

Bummer.

Its all right but not worth $10

It had some good ideas for a game of this type with multiple types of puzzles but was not worth the $10 paid for it. It was little too short having beat it in about 2 hours.

Sam & Max 201- Ice Station Santa

Boring

Not a whole lot of thinking in this game. You only do a couple things, and 90% of it is just dialoge. It's basically like watching a cartoon. Not recommended for anyone over the age of 10.

The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes 2
 – 

The 1st one is better

I bought the 1st Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes so I thought I would give this one a try. It's ok but the first one was better in my opinion. In this one you don't have Sherlock's hat hidden anywhere. There seem to be more mini-games. I found some of them annoying because most of the time you had to rotate pieces to make them fit. I also didn't like the fact that unlike the first game when you found the clues for a certain suspect, the clock stopped so you could read their information. In this one the clock does not stop. They also used some British terms sometimes which made it a little harder for an American like me to find some of the clues. The cases also don't start out easy to hard like in the 1st one. Some of the early cases were hard, and some of the later cases were quite easy. I thought the graphics of the 1st one was better too. Especially when it came to eliminating the suspects.
