Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
 – 

Minor errors but overall excellent.

I can second some of the other reviewer's complaints (Luiz) and offer insight on those errors. The sound does in fact bug if the sfx/music is meant to be more ambient or heard through a building. For example standing out the doors by the Malibu club, the music from within the club sounds really "bit crushing" and unnatural. Everything else sounds fine (radio, gun shots, etc), it's all good.

As far as flying the copters, you can adjust the controls to make it less frustrating when using a laptop. For example put the "lean forward" and "back" commands on mouse buttons, so you can click those while using up/down/left/right with keyboard keys. Sort of balances it out but still takes getting used to. It is possible with some clever reassigning.

What else can I say? It's otherwise the same great classic with the updated Xbox edition graphics and runs flawlessly on my mb running Snow Leopard. My fav of the PS2/Xbox1 era of GTA games.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
 – 

last but not least

The mother of all Gta's, san Andreas has a lot to bring to the table. Out of the trilogy this one has the most variety, but compared to gta3 and vc it's not as smooth. People have complained about slow framerate issues and bugs, but the only problems i've noticed is texture load in, which is expected in any free roam game especially as large as san andreas. Other than that game runs perfectly fine on my mid 09 mbp 2.53 ghz 9400m. 150+ vehicles, boats, planes, helicopters, bikes, jetpacks, and a whole lot of weapons is what makes this a must buy. get it while its cheap.

still just as fun!!

I currently own a mid 09 mbp 2.53 ghz with a 9400m graphics card and this game works flawlessly. Sure there are some cutscenes where the audio is a little static, but this is unnoticeable. Compared to all three of the series this runs the smoothest and is personally my second favorite of the trilogy. Controls are intuitive but i suggest you purchase a mouse for finer aiming assistance. This is definitely a title you'll want on your computer or laptop forever.

Just playable, not optimal

Has minor but annoying sound issues sometimes, the controls aren't optimized for mac keyboard (specially controlling helicopters) among other things; I would say it is just playable.

Two Worlds II
 – 

Nice graphics, klunky gameplay

My major gripe with this game is that there are no written instructions on how to use the interface. So as a beginner I'm left to trying random key combinations to try to get a result.

Then there were the constant cutscenes; I felt I was always being interrupted in my explorations. The landscape does not appear contiguous, the player is always being snatched away and put in a different location.

At the point I left the game I had been transported to a sort of crypt and had to face a boss, but the weapons I had were inadequate to defeat him. There was nowhere to turn for any hints and I couldn't escape the crypt. Perhaps if I spent a great deal of time on the internet looking for walkthroughs or forum posts that would help me find my way. But at that point I gave up on the game.

OK game

I bought this game with high expectations but the game really disapointed me. It has a great story and sounds like a really cool game. But the interface and handling of the game is horrible. The camera glitches up a lot and the animation is horrible. Save your money and buy a real time strategy game. Dont buy this game, trust me.

Coyote's Tale
 – 

One of the Best!

I'm a snob, I admit it, and a fan of really beautiful hidden object games - something about them is like doing artwork, as you keep looking deeper, you get that same meditative high - really, I think that's what drives the genre. As far as anything good, of course, which a few classics, as far as I'm concerned. Coyote's Tale not only gives you a beautiful game, the gameplay is interesting and cool - a rare combination. Awesome stuff, the kind you keep and go back to, just hope they do a sequel.

Serious download trouble

I tried this game on my other computer and it never ran. I put it on my newer computer and it ran for about 25 minutes and then stopped abruptly. Then, when I went back in, all the progress I made was not saved and I had to start from the beginning again. I really enjoyed the first installment of this game but this next one has been frustrating. FIX THE BUGS!!!!
