Battlefield 2142
 – 

Fantastic, despite the bugs

Very fun game! The game play is very similar to Battlefield 2, but players of Battlefield 1942 will probably be able to figure things out pretty quickly too. A few problems with freezing (and not being able to force quit out, forced restart) but the game play is about as fun as it gets. Try the new Titan game type maps, it's a lot of fun.

Travelogue 360 Rome: Curse of the Necklace

I played the game in its entirety, assigned a new "user" then had to locate the identical objects all over again. I expected unlimited play with oh so many objects to locate. Was fun the first time around. Boring the second try. I'm disappointed that I bought the game.

Reel Deal Card Games
 – 

Needs work

With Texas Hold 'em I had hold cards Q,10. At the turn card there were two more 10's on the board (i.e., I had 3 of a kind). When the betting was done I lost, because the game didn't recognize that I had 3 of a kind; it did not acknowledge my 10 hold card! Yes, it's only an inexpensive game, still what's the point? The programming is off! Sorry...

Project Nomads

Save your money

Interesting concept but poorly implemented. You're a first person player in what they're trying to make a RTS battlefield. The problem is this accentuates the clunkiness inherent in RTS, the inability to multitask effectively. So you wind up moving your island, then stopping and shooting. Boring.

To make it worse, you can't remap the keybindings, which should be a basic feature in any game you plan on charging people money for.

Postal 2: Share The Pain
 – 

Let your Id out to play...

Excellent substitute for those days when you feel like going out and doing the real thing. Postal is a lot more fun for everyone involved than actually going on a shooting spree.

Cold War

Meh.

Awesome graphics, but the game mechanics felt awkward at best and the voice acting was really bad. Didn't hold my interest past the intro level.

Professor Fizzwizzle
 – 

The Professor is for All Ages

This may be a more brief review than you wish, but it hopefully answers any questions not taken care of by playing the demo version, which I recommend you download and play.

Professor Fizzwizzle is a game that is challenging, yet not frustrating for players of all ages, from toddlers to great grandparents. The game has four difficulty choices, from beginner to advanced. The concepts remain the same on each difficulty, yet the obstacles encountered are more mentally complex to challenge even the most skilled player. Since my grandchildren and I all enjoy the game play on both Windows and mac platforms, I have only praise for the design of the game. My only dislike is the background music, which I turn down the volume on so its repetion does not annoy my wife.

Prey
 – 

I get that Marathon feeling at times

Or what it should have evolved into.

This game is for mature gamers. If you don't like Alien, Predator, Terminator or the likes of any sci-fi/space action you might not think this game all that.

The rest of you will bond instantly to it. Blood, crude language, carnage... and with a storyline also. Walking upside down, on wall ramps, flying... it's dizzily awesome. Great concept on the spirit walking.

Even with the graphics on low, it's really amazing compared to other shooters that have the same system requirements.

The storyline does seem to get lost as you get further into the game. As usual, you get 'bigger' weapons as you go along and it can be a bit disappointing. And while the weapons look (and may feel) different from the typical shooter, it's still the same ole pistol, grenades, shotgun, BFG etc.

Also the game at times, despite the awesome graphics, suffers from the "Halo repetitiveness". Loading times can disrupt the flow of the game.

Still it's a good game. And having missed Marathon so much (and after being denied the first crack at the pre-MS Halo), it's great to have a shooter like this.

Fairies
 – 

A Deliciously Addictive Arcade Game

At first glance, Fairies sounds as if it has a very simple premise - perhaps even too simple: drag colored rows of jars over a grid to create lines of three (or more) like colored jars, which then release the fairies trapped inside. However, Fairies is wickedly addictive despite this easy premise, because to add to this simple idea it sports wonderful graphics filled with fairy dust and beautiful art-deco-esque fairies, a relaxing sound score which doesn't get easily repetitive, and four different versions of gameplay, including a classic arcade, which is timed, a non-timed version, an "endless" version, in which jars keep replacing ad infinitum, and a sound and color matching game. Because of its inherent "arcade status" most gamers will probably not play this title for hours on end. But the game is refreshing, filled with eye-candy, and presents a good challenge to return to for many weeks of enjoyable play.

Great Fun game

I love these puzzle games. This one is really a lot of fun, puzzles are no too difficult or too easy, and it makes no pretense to be anything other than a pure puzzle game. The only negative for me is the choice between full screen (too big) or windowed, which just a tad too small. Definitely worth the money.

Scrabble Classic
 – 

Not Perfect by a Long Shot

As the game progresses it becomes apparent that the opposition is not playing from seven pre-selected tiles but is playing from a choice of all remaining tiles. This give the opposition the advantage of selecting whatever tiles are necessary to score better than the player. It is fun but too predictable.

Slow on Intel

I played the demo of this game. The global screen scrolling was deathly slow on my MacBook Pro...

Liked it, but was too short.

I loved this game. I am a hairstylist and I really enjoyed the gameplay. The problem was that I finished it in just a few hours. I wish there would have been more challenges and upgrades. But overall, it is a great game. Lots of fun!

Perfect!

This game has the same objective as diner dash, so if you are a fan of that then you have to try this game! You get upgrades to help, and they actually have a purpose, there are enough game levels so that you won't bore easy and you can see how the hairstyle has changed the person!

Virtual Villagers - The Lost Children
 – 

Really cute and fun

I don't have a lot of time to play on the computer so, for me, this little sim game is just time consuming enough. When I have time I can figure out puzzles and work with the villagers. When I don't have time I just check up on them. The villagers are really cute. They build huts, farm, fish and climb coconut trees. When all is going well they swim in the pond and enjoy the beach. The little kids run around playing "tag". It's cute!
