They way it was meant to be

Wow, geeze this game is excellent. The graphics are exceptional, the story is fine, though, not deep, and about the same story you might remember from Diablo 1 and 2. The gameplay is very much like Diablo 2, only there is more detail in the items and smarter segregation of stores and shops. I like that when you die you get to have 3 options and you have all your gear and body immediately, unlike Diablo 2. The skill trees are simple, more graphic than Diablo 2 but don't seem to have any synergy skills that Diablo 2 is really good at. The pet is a very nice feature similar to the mercenary in Diablo 2 only the mercenary is extremely limited, where as the pet at is more interesting and can hold gear, not just wear it. The pet casts spells as well! Rings and amulets are socketed, unlike Diablo 2. The monsters are more varied than Diablo 2 and the "prettiness" of the gameplay graphics is far superior to Diablo 2-basically the special effects of spells and such is very well done. By all comparisons, Torchlight is basically a Diablo 2.5 if not 2.9. It will be interesting to see how much better Diablo 3 is than Torchlight and I suspect when Torchlight 2 comes out in Spring 2011, it might just be better than Diablo 3 in some ways. I will buy both, unless Blizzard requires a monthly subscription to play Diablo 3, in which case I won't buy the game and get Torchlight 2 instead. I am using a Macintosh (of course), which is a Mac Mini 2010. It is a 2.66Ghz Intel Core2 Duo with 2GB RAM and a nVidia 320M integrated processor and I can run the game with full settings on high. There is an occasional 1 second lag when in large enounters but this probably the game accessing info on the Mac Mini hard drive which is VERY SLOW (a SATA 1 with a 5400 RPM drive and 8MB cache), but it is very rare and not really noticable. I am planning on upgrading the RAM to 4GB or more so that might help since 2 GB in Snow Leopard 10.6.4 is really not enough. Considering the Mac Mini is seriously the SLOWEST Macintosh you can buy today, the game runs flawlessly on it, smooth and clean and very pleasing to the eye. That is really good programing! I recommend this game 100% if you enjoyed Diablo 2 at all. At least it will tide us all over until Diablo 3 comes out (or Torchlight 2!)

Guns of Icarus

Great game, with terrific concept, good programming on the front end, less good on the back end. As a first person shooter, I like it a lot. But...

The demo might be the end-game. It seems to be another 'hook' for gamesters that has nothing to do with decent video games.

Nice Concept BUT....

Graphics are bad and I hope they tested this before it was put out. You can't play properly. Graphics becomes blury once you move your mouse across the screen. Fix it and I will change my rating and review.

BORING!!!

I have never been that keen on hidden object games, however this has to be one of the most boring I have seen. The graphics are great, but the story line is very ordinary and the listening to the same music throughout the game is exhausting. The game is far to easy to play and then if you choose the advanced option there is actually no difference at all. Truly a waste of $9.95

Excellent Value

I cant believe how good this game is for the price. It's very Diablo like, and excellent Value for the money.

Buy it you will not regret the purchase and if you buy 3 games you get one free which makes it even cheaper.

When you don't want to log into WOW and need a quick fix look no further.

It runs under 10.6.4 with no worries. with Torchlight on my Mac and Dungeon Hunter on my Iphone I should survive until Diablo III.

Anyone who's ever played Diablo will feel right at home with game. Yes they could make more chracter types etc but you have several to choose from and for the price i dont think anyone could argue that it is not good value for the price.

Plants vs. Zombies Game Of The Year Edition
 – 

GOTY Edition??

I finished the story mode well over a year ago, and I still play the "JarBreaker Unlimited" all the time!! I'd be worth it just for that.

Not sure what you get with the new edition. . .some kind of Zombatar?? Not sure if it's worth buying twice just for that.

But if you don't own the game, just buy it. . .it's the perfect mix of addicting, lite, funny, and challenge.

By far, the best computer game I have ever played. Plants vs. zombies? Are you kidding me? Whoever came up with that idea is a GENIUS.

Fun and sexy too!

Terrific game - graphics and story are excellent, and nicely adult. Very good puzzles. Well worth your time and money. Don't waste your time worrying about unlocking the "Extras". They aren't puzzles, just extra stuff.

Great puzzles, anticlimactic ending

I really liked the puzzles in this game but I have to say the ending left much to be desired. It was like they just got sick of the game and decided to just end it. ?? weird.
