Great Monster Trouble
 – 

It needs some polish

The game is very nice to look at, but the controls are clunky. Moving the arrow to the edge of the screen doesn't keep scrolling your view smoothly, so you have to keep "bumping" it to look around at the edges which I want to do constantly to see which enemies are coming. You can also scroll out to get a bird's eye view, but you can't easily snatch the coins in the middle of battle from that view. The game doesn't let you move your men and build buildings while paused either, so you have to scramble to do that while playing. I understand that is part of the challenge, but I want a challenging game, not challenging controls, and I'd rather have time to think out my strategy and see if works, not lose a scenario because I'm not up to click-fest standards.

For instance to move a man you have to move your cursor to the bottom of the screen, select Move, then grab the guy, then pick his destination. That's fairly straightforward but if your destination is off the screen, like with the island map, then you have to bump the screen a few times to shift your view, or scroll out and scroll back in while doing all this. Hitting the "m" key for move would help make this faster (along with "w" for water!).

Similarly, I tried instinctively double-clicking a guy to grab and move him faster on multiple occasions, but that just selects him to show his health bar. Given the damage the guys were taking, along with fire damaging my buildings, I wanted at times to see which of my guys/buildings was most damaged. That'd be easier if a single key showed me all the health bars when I held it down or toggled it on & off.

BTW, I was playing on the difficulty setting it defaulted to, medium or whatever. Overall it's somewhat fun but I found the controls?well, clunky and at times non-intuitive. I think it could be a very fun game but right now I'm upset I spent $10 on something that feels unfinished.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena

Excellent game, works great on 2008 Macbook 2.2ghz

Wow what can I say, awesome game. Very well done, great graphics. Not to mention you get 2 games, pretty lengthy gameplay well worth the money on this one.

Very nice on a fast Mac

This game is running fine on my iMac 27 i7. Along with my wireless 360 gamepad (rumble effects fully supported), it's a lot of fun to play.
I use the maximum resolution of 2560 * 1440 with the details on high, and the game is still very fluid. Great purchase if you have a fast Mac with a good video card.

City of Heroes Going Rogue: Complete Collection
 – 

love the game not the players!

I was obsessed with this game for months. i wasn't working and had the time. then as i hit the higher lvls of play, people became pricks. they would boot you from teams if you got distracted for a sec. God forbid real life need your attention for any bit of time. then the upgrade was done that doesn't allow leopard systems to work. it became allot of trouble.

it's no torchlight!

when it came out i suggested it to everyone i knew. now that torchlight is out for the same price it's kind of pointless. torchlight is much more polished and in depth.

Mystery Legends: Beauty and the Beast Collector's Edition
 – 

Outstanding!

From the opening screen to the end of the bonus chapter this was an exceptional game. The artwork, the story, the game play, the animations - top notch. No - not the most challenging game, but a pleasurable several hours just the same. It was fun, the puzzles were original, it just flowed along. I must say, IMHO, the bonus chapter lived up to the core game and in some ways even surpassed it. Yes - only another hour, but in no way fluff filler. Rather it was a stunning presentation with a lot of thought behind it. Other than the strategy guide and the extra chapter, the CE's only additional content is the text of the original Beauty and the Beast story. Some may say that's not enough to pay more for, but in this case I was quite satisfied.

Gambling

I have had this game for a good year and it is good not the best but you don't win all the time as some of the games out there do on some slots.

It is worth the money so try it you might like it is the old saying.

Steel Storm: Burning Retribution
 – 

innovative and loads of fun

I find myself playing this most every night for an hour or more to unwind. Unlike other shooters, you can edit this game extensively making it extremely challenging or removing any item you may not wish to use. I've actually created new levels since the makers thoughtfully left many levels with empty sections you can fill with various types of the adversaries-and their are many.
I believe there is a second version in the works-I am most excited about this. This is one game I've not been disappointed with!! My thanks to the makers of this game!
Respectfully, Dr.K

Nice variety

Besides the H.O. scenes, there are also games where you spot the differences between two pictures, find matching objects, find the item that doesn't match the others and jigsaw type puzzles. It's a decent length game for the price. Worth getting if you like these kind of puzzles.

Penumbra Collection
 – 

would be great

If it weren't for the bugs, dont get me wrong the game runs smooth as ever on my mid mbp 2.53ghz 9400m, but all of them, including amnesia, have bugs that stop me from completing the game. In my case its always a missing item that halters my progress. And starting the game over to see if the item reappears is just a waste of time in my opinion. So its fun while it lasts, but frustrating in some aspects.

Horrible

Just bought this game, started it and don't like it at all. The cards are fuzzy and I can't see what the numbers are very easily at all. Wish I could get my money back.

Mystery Legends: Beauty and the Beast Collector's Edition

beauty and the beast

Great graphics and the hidden objects are not too difficult to find (but still challenging). After awhile hidden object games tend to repeat the same type of puzzles to solve, Beauty and the Beast offers some original puzzles. Love the music, and like the original Beauty and the Beast novel.
