CSI: NY
 – 

Bit Disappointing

This game is very linear. Quite boring and far too easy. Mini games are repetitive and for the main part it's just a glorified hidden object game. Graphically very basic and the objects are way to easy to find. I'm sorry I paid so much for this game - it's certainly not even close CSI: Hard Evidence - now that's a game worth every penny. Sorry guys but this isn't what I'd expect from a sequel.

Agatha Christie: Peril at End House
 – 

Fun, Interesting, and a Good Buy

I admit, reading reviews helps me make up my mind to buy or not buy a game.

I am a mystery and suspense buff so this game interested me. This is the first Agatha Christie Hidden Objects Game I have played. I did try the demo on the others, but they were not as good as this one. The graphics are very nice, clear and interesting. I especially enjoyed finding rocks-in-a-line at the Seacliff steps scene, putting eggs in a bowl, toys into a basket, papers in a drawer, letters on the gate post, etc. - very nice touch. A little "game" within a game.

I had difficulties finding objects at the Seacliff steps and Challenger's Yacht, which gave me a bit of a challenge (sic). The lighting in the Lawn screen at End house was also interesting, one was a night scene and the other a daylight scene. It was a test to find objects during the night scene and a relief to find them during the daylight scene; a very good mix.

The mini-puzzles between rounds were fun; finding pieces of newspaper articles in the hidden objects search and then having to put them together in the next mini-puzzle. Finding the parts of a dismantled radio in a search and then putting it back together. I could go on, but suffice to say, I enjoyed them as a little extra in the game.

My only complaint was that it was too short. I have played it twice and will leave it for awhile before playing it again. I am the type of person who likes to have my games for a long time. I hope there is another Agatha Christie coming soon!

Europa Universalis: Rome
 – 

Only for fans

This is not a review but an observation of selling policy by VP. The game itself is difficult to play, but is by far the easiest of the EU series, and not to everyone's taste.

I have purchased other VP programs and have always found them difficult but fascinating. I guess I continue to buy them because I crave strategy games and they are sorely lacking on the Mac platform...I will correct myself... They are non-existent on the Mac platform. Therefore anything is better than nothing at all. However EU: Rome presents a problem like others in the VP series: The cost is too high for what you get.

The Windows versions are significantly cheaper, and by significantly, I mean $19.95 per game. Though I am willing to pay the Mac premium, the difference in price is far too great. I recently bought the EU: Rome boxed version for Windows. Like other VP Games, VP products quickly enter the game remainder market at discount prices and I bought at at a remainder house. My EU: Rome game contained a printed manual, a CD disk, a large map of the Roman empire, and a hard shell plastic case. When I compare this purchase to a digital download, I cannot justify the higher expense of $40.00 for a digital download. If EU: Rome was a more reasonable $20, I might buy it, burn a disk, and add it to my already purchased windows version package. At least I would also have a readable manual and map from my windows package. By the way, the remainder price for my windows version of EU: Rome was $6.00.

Something Special
 – 

Jade Empire: Special Edition
 – 

Runs well, some problems though

Pros:
-Nicer graphics than xbox with hi rez and anti-aliasing
-Minor "Special edition" features
-Overall, runs nicely.. so nice to not have to restart into Windows

Cons:
-Not very much new.. and nothing new specifically for the Mac version to justify the cost
-Some features missing from prefs (you have to edit the prefs file manually)
-Manually enabled Mouse Look can do some funky things
-Also FSAA can cause stability problems
-Game controller buttons need to be manually edited, and not all buttons work
-Some features missing entirely (like the rotation during pause)
-The hoops one must go through to use the Windows-based saved game editor on this cider version are many
-The "Master" mode (once you complete the game) is exceedingly difficult

Could use work

Good game, but I think it would have been way better if it had online play, statistics built in, and other goodies to make the game not get stale after a while.

I played this game when I had a windows computer and really enjoyed it. I was excited when I found it was available for mac. However when I download the game it never comes up all you can hear is the music to the game and that is all and in order to stop the music I have to shut down my computer. I have no idea why I was able to use the windows version but can't play the mac version.

The programmers have done a great job on this and it is quite challenging. Shooting colored balls off the ceilings and walls...if I thought this game was challenging before, ha! I've yet to get a Mac Intel, and this shows how well my old beastie still runs! Thank you!

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Hard Evidence
 – 

OK.. but game was way too short and too easy..

This game had great graphics and a good story line to it, but I found the game to by way to short. It takes a few case to get the hang of moving around, and but the time you do, the game is done.. I was able to finish this game in one sitting, from start to finish in one night.. and I found it to be way to easy to solve the crimes. After finishing the game, I was able to unlock the "hidden" stuff cause I did so well..

Yep.. I'm a master CSI. :P ..but really great graphics and story line.

This is not a game it is a disfuntional load of rubbish

This game does not function properly - it is badly written and however cheaply it may be priced it is not worth a penny of anyone's money.

Very Entertaining

Exactly like the old game but because it takes place in space it has all these cool new features that wouldn't make sense for the old game like the ability to control gravity! Amazing!
