Puzzle Agent 2
 – 

Almost has good at the first

I loved the first game. It was in one of those bundle buys and didn't know what to expect but I would have paid full price easy. So when I heard a 2nd was coming I was excited. And after playing and finishing I would have to say I wasn't disappointed. Sure its not as good as the first. But far from being a bad game. Loved it almost as much. Hope to see a 3rd :)

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
 – 

The Greatest game of the GTA series!

Lion 10.7.2 compatible on two MacBooks! Played on a MacBook Pro 17 inch i7 8GB RAM and on a MacBook Air with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13 GHz with 4 GB RAM.

Great game because of the great depth and the perfect difficulty level i.e. not too easy nor hard. Love it!

The graphics are amazing, for a game from 2005! It is a big, big game! It takes place in "San Andreas" (a country I suppose), which has three main cities : Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas. It's a huge map!

The main character is Carl Johnson, which came back to Los Santos (West Coast) from the East Coast, to bury his mom that has been killed by the ballas gang.

So should I go for this game?
If you are mature then absolutely you should. You simply can't ask for a game better than this.

The Good : Great storyline & dialogues. Variety of missions/objectives. Long hours of intriguing Gameplay.

The Bad : Strong use of language, nudity, etc. Radio voices of DJ's can be irritating.

Final Verdict : This is one of the rare Masterpiece in gaming. You simply can't afford to miss it. Highly Recommended.

Purchased this game down loaded it and can not open it once it was installed. I got an IMac and this is the first one that has done this for me.

Don't waste your money

Good up to a point, then the game play is seriously flawed (plus I think the game has a few bugs). Glad it was on sale for $2.49, otherwise I would have been ticked.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
 – 

Fantastic!

Lion 10.7.2 compatible on two MacBooks! Played on a MacBook Pro 17 inch i7 8GB RAM and on a MacBook Air with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13 GHz with 4 GB RAM.

Grand Theft Auto Vice City is a great game, hands down. This game is not better than GTA San Andreas, but it is still a great game.

The one thing that makes it great is that it is very fun to play. The storyline in Grand Theft Auto Vice City is also very memorable. All the characters in the game are very funny and cool.

Vice City takes place in the 1980s. The surrounding area is gorgeous and really gives you a feel of how 1980s Miami really was.

Would I recommend this game well yes and no. Yes if you like this kind of game and are not sensitive to the violence level. No if you are not a fan of this type of game and are very sensitive to the violence level in the game. But if you are looking for a long lasting action game then you couldn't go wrong with GTA Vice City.

bad idea to make it

Silly game! You even don't take part in it, don't control the game and there is no action!

Not worth the money

It's basically counter strike with only 4 or 5 guns and vehicles.

Cave Quest
 – 

I'd recommend it

For the price, this little game delivers. The match three portions of the game are cleverly embedded as responses to clues about the story line, but hints are available if you get stuck. Although I finished the game in just a couple of days, I really enjoyed it! Hoping to see another like this from the developer.

Great Monster Trouble
 – 

Great Game

If you like a 3D games where must to defend your village from different kind of monsters this is the best game around.

It's different from all other defense and strategy games because here, there is real action and wonderful graphics.

You never play in the same way each level and positioning and movement strategy is important.

This game is "my choice" and I'm sure it will be loved by most game players. 5 Shiny Stars.

The Tiny Bang Story
 – 

Worth Every Penny

I admit this is basically a happy version of Machinarium, but that makes it even better for my 8 year old son. One reviewer mentioned that it wasn't anywhere near as good as Machinarium because he was just finding parts and he couldn't find them all. Although this game does have a lot of "I SPY" in it, you eventually use the parts you find to assemble puzzles that you have to solve. These are generally a bit easier than Machinarium's puzzles which is good for my son since we had to solve many of the hard puzzles for him in Machinarium.

So, if you're looking for something as involved as Machinarium, this will disappoint. But if you just want some family game time that's not mind-numbing, you couldn't ask for more!

Hearts of Iron 2 Complete
 – 

Massive

Overall, I enjoy this game. In some ways it has a lot of repeat play value, but the reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it's not particularly exciting. In the end, there is no other thing to do than continue attacking until you can take over the whole world. There comes a point in the game where either you have a shot at doing it or you know you can't. At that point, the game become boring.

THE GOOD
1. Great level of historical detail for the major players
2. Many options for controlling your countries economy, military, and technology
3. Grand scale,
4. Many playable nations,
5. Real time

CONS
1. Hard to figure out (though once you do, it's not hard to play.)
2. Not as fun if you're not one of the major powers.
3. Complicated to manage air, sea, and land combat at the same time.
4. Many events are "locked" historically and affect things. For example, Poland is always going to get attacked by the Germans at some point.
5. Some countries, such as Poland, are not winnable.
6. It's possible to flush a huge amount of time into this game.

I play the Mac version. DON'T rely on the specs given here. I use a G4 1.67 with 2GB of RAM and this game runs adequately to poorly. There are no 3D elements or real animation to speak of, and the graphics blow, so it's either poorly coded or just that plain massive. There specs of a G3 500 seem just plain insane to me.

Duke Nukem Forever
 – 

Hail to the king, baby!

Like Jorge Cabral already described it in his review the game is fun and its also what I did expect of it.

Hell, its been in development for over a decade now. They began from scratch four times (or more, I didn't remember). Also developers switched constantly. Its a wonder that the game really has been released.

Sure, the graphics are lacking behind but thats something I don't care about. We all knew something like that would happen as a result of being in chaotic development for ages. In the end I'm just grateful that it was not going to be vaporware.

On top of that the game got me the second Duke said the first sentence and it felt like before. I had fun like I did playing Duke Nukem 3D the first time. Hunting down aliens, saving the world (and its babes) and laughing about Dukes way of commenting things.

The Settlers 7 Paths to a Kingdom: Deluxe Gold Edition
 – 

Good game, bad DRM, non-optimized RAM usage

Overall its a good game. The gameplay is fun, the graphics are good, the campaign is well made even though its predictable. Multiplayer works well too, but it lacks a massive community like Starcraft 2 has for example. So its no bug if you have an empty session browser sometimes.

A real drawback is that you aren't able to play while being offline because of the strict DRM. So no settling if theres no internet connection available.

I also run into a problem where the game slows down and memory errors occur leading to a crash of the game. This seem only to happen on very long games and probably is caused by the Cider port. I'm on a Mac Pro with 8 GB of memory and I got the message there is not enough memory remaining and the game will quit after playing for a long while. Felt like a bad joke. On the other hand: Which game doesn't have bugs? (And its the only one I run into so far.)

Anyway, I would definitley buy it again.
