FATE
 – 

Not yet ready for prime time

Do not buy this game yet - it looks good, but still needs some fixes. Here is why:

a) In any text and in front and/or at the end of any number you see a very annoying \010 appearing. This makes it impossible to see how much gold you just need to buy something and annoying to read e.g. the intro.

b) When you quit the game, it will *not* restore your desktop icons. You have to reset them yourself and that is a no-do for any app on the Mac. Did they never test it on their machines?

c) The sound quits abruptly for a few seconds if you level up or another action comes up. IT sounds like one speaker gone and is defenitely a very bad interruption of the game atmosphere.

A promising game which was -again- released too early and had not seen any final testing. The customers have to pay for the shortsight game management. Buy it when the bugs are fixed. Then it will definitely shorten your wait for Diablo III.

Love this game

It was challenging and fun with only one player at a time. It continued to get harder. As it got harder you had to figure out what would get you to the next level; like breaking all the ice and making long chains before your time ran out.

Mystery Case Files: Prime Suspects
 – 

Love this game

My husband and I play this game for hours together. The seek and find items change when you repeat a scene which keep things exciting. This game is challenging and things are cleverly hidden. Can't say enough good things about this game. We've had it 1 1/2 to 2 years and aren't tired of it yet.

Timed or relaxed play. I am still playing it!

G2 - Geeks Unleashed
 – 

Are you kidding with this game?

I'm an avid casual game player. You might even say I'm a geek. And I have never been so disappointed in a game purchase as I was with G2-Geeks Unleashed. First, obviously made for 5 yr olds, which is cool, if you say that in the description. Second, this game was SO SHORT that if I hadn't let the hour trial run out because I was distracted and left the game up on my computer for an hour...I would have beaten it in that hour. My bad. But the game makers and the Mac store should really try to be less obvious when making a very shallow game that isn't even close to a $20 value. Don't bother with this game, trust me. You'll just up angry!

Blood Ties
 – 

So-so...

Not quite up to par with releases "James Pattersons Women's Murder Club" or "Agatha Christie's Peril At End House". Both of which are the high benchmarks for games of this type.

Object finding is far too easy as items are virtually sitting out in the open. Little effort is required by the player. And sorely missed in Blood Ties are the fun 'mini-games', which transitions as bonus rounds in the other two games mentioned.

Also, there's really no story to support the game. Each level is identical to the previous with no sense that the player is 'moving forward' to gain or work toward a substantive resolution.

I suppose watching the tv show enhances the enjoyment. But as a standalone game, far too pedestrian with little payoff for the time spent.

The Cursed Wheel
 – 

Game is ok, but crashes after awhile.

The game play and everything is fine, nothing spectacular. But the game constantly crashes after a few hours of play, very annoying. The demo did not do this. Only lasted an hour, so of course it wouldn't. Contacted the publisher and developer, no response, so consider yourself warned.

Women's Murder Club: Death In Scarlet
 – 

Way too short

The graphics and puzzles were pretty good, but the game was too short. I finished it in a couple of hours. I am really disappointed - a wasted of my money!

Brave Dwarves: Back for Treasures
 – 

They picked Dopey to get the treasure?

The other dwarves are too smart to waste their time in this "adventure" because they realize that the they'll die of boredom long before they can get out of the mine with the treasures. So, Dopey must be the poor sap stuck in this game. Dopey and, of course, us. The keyboard interaction is clumsy and awkward, causing you to die (a lot!) from fumbled fingers. The monster movement is jerky, which only adds to your character's death rate because your weapon is equally erratic. And, of course, when you die, you appear at the start of the level, very frustrating as the levels get longer. So, when you finally realize that you don't care if Dopey is stuck in the mine forever, give yourself a break and quit out of the game.

It's too late for me but save yourselves from this torture. It's not worth wasting your bandwidth on.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
 – 

This is the best game I have ever played

I bought this game for my birthday because I am a HUGE Starwars fan. I have played World of Warcraft, Runescape, Final Fantasy, Everquest, and any other roleplaying game imaginable. I have also played all the star wars games (Jedi outcast, jedi knight jedi academy, etc.) This is the best game I have ever played.!!!!! Period.No. Exclamation!!!!!!!! If you like to play computer games, like Starwars, or like roleplaying games, then this is a must have.

Features
Create your own character, including class, appearance, light or dark etc.

Your actions affect whether you are light or dark

Amazing re-playability, so many options, so many decisions.

Choose your force powers depending on alignment, create your own lightsaber

Fun tutorial

Immersive gameplay

Great graphics, gameplay, and sound

Requires thinking, not just button pressing. You have to choose your actions before a fight, and if you begin to lose the edge of the fight, just choose different actions! So much strategy involved, not just luck or how fast/how many times you can press a button.

Once again, this is will be the best game you have ever played. You will never EVER regret buying this product. A MUST HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) :-) :-)

Miriel the Magical Merchant

Challenging game with great animation

interesting story line with multiple endings and real recipes to use. The advanced levels can be quite challenging and require quite a bit of memoization. The graphics remind you of older high quality cartoons. At least 6 hours straight gameplay with good replay value, 60 levels in all. If you like time managent games with puzzles this game is certainly worth buying!

Ancient Quest of Saqqarah
 – 

Fantastic Game!

A well crafted game with 7 different play types. Excellent graphics and the type of game you will play for weeks. There has to be at least 500 different levels with lots of different ranks and bonuses to earn. The most difficult part is the curved pathways. The most original MATCH 3 game I have ever played, but you have khufu the magical blue monkey to guide you lol! It sets a new standard for the "match 3" genre!

Escape from Paradise

Marvelous, beautiful graphics, addictive as can be... When can we expect a sequel ? With maybe forming couples, wedding parties and/or other parties to dance, have fun, have babies, see the latter growing up, why not gardening also etc... in case they'll have to stay ? or maybe built a boat to escape ? find a new island with a treasure ... or discover different types of animals to interact with ...

Burger Shop

Very addicting game!

If you're the organizing type that likes games like Diner Dash or any of the other service oriented games, you'll probably like this one. Your goal is to serve all of the customers their special (and sometimes weird) orders in a timely fashion. I've been playing since April trying to get perfect scores on both the Story and Expert levels. It's not impossible, but it does take some practice. Each session is relatively short so it's great if you only have a little time available to play.
