Full of bugs

I purchased this game months ago and it is basically unplayable. It has a bug in it that won't allow me to save my game. I contacted the publishers and they have yet to provide me with a patch.

Great Until you play master

Agreeing with one of the other posters, I've found that you are definitely not playing a fari game when you get up to the higher levels.

I started at Intermediate and worked my way up, trying to find the perfect computer opponent. Elite was close, but I was beating him (her?) too often and wanted to really challenge my brain, memory, math skills.

Wow, I didn't realize that being a Master at Scrabble meant that you drew all the best letters every time, using all your tiles on nearly every turn. Meanwhile, I get EEEIIUC to work with.

To test my theory that the Master cheats, I tried a little experiment where I would click the "Best Play" button every time. So I was supposedly getting the same computer brain advantage that he has. But he still beat me by at least 100 points most of the time.

I'm still playing the master, because I like a challenge, and it feels really REALLY good when I beat him once every 10 games.

THIS IS FOR ALL THE GARDNERS!!

I really lovveee this game. I like planting plants, but mostly herb plants. Well, I have found this game so exciting. I work six days a week and I found it to take my mind off of working so much and to enjoy nature. The best part of it all is that you can pollinate your own plants. So it keeps you guessing on what type of plant you can make. This is awesome.

Never play this in the dark with headphones on...

Else you'll never be able to sleep again. Trust me...

Doom 3 is a sweet game with a great story line, including the back story. I love these games that took the time to go the extra mile and include back story and details like that.

When you are done with this game, you'll never look at a floor or wall the same again...

Shocking standard for a game on the market in 2007

I played better games (graphics, storyline, interface) in the late 80's and 25 years later... something like this is being sold? I can't believe that I just paid $30 for this; wouldn't pay $5 if I had to do it over again. I played for 20 mins and am likely to never again load the game. Disappointed in macgamestore for not screening this out of their inventory.

This game was so boring I can only think it is someone's idea of a joke. You don't have to work anything out. I can't believe anyone would call them four different levels. Game play identical in all with a different lame backdrop. I'm so embarrassed I paid for this please don't do the same.

Loved the game when I played it. Could not discover how to play again until I read a review. Very sorry that all of the objects are the same the second time. Fix this, and the game would be perfect.

The graphics are cute, the game is fun amd addictive, but some technical issues make it highly unpleasant. On my Mac Intel it crashes very often, usually on launching the app. The really ugly bit is that it does not run in full-screen mode on my mac, even after having installed it again... so the game is fun, i just haven't enjoyed playing it because of the technical quirks which made it useless.

X-Plane Deluxe 8

Absolute waste of $$$$

I bought this a few months ago for $60 to help me learn to hover in an R22 helicopter. I also bought MSN Flight Sim 2000 for $20. The sys req on the box matched my system, but I couldn't get the game to play very well. Every time I got into a helicopter, the thing rolled over to the right and crashed every time, then would either freeze or play a replay of the wreckage. Then my mac crashed so I bought the latest mac a few weeks ago and guess what? Even though my system far exceeds the requirements of this game, it tells me I need to update and buy a new computer! Even on the lowest frame rate and details settings. And I'm still experiencing the same problem - as soon as I get into the helicopter it drives itself into what seems like dynamic rollover and destroys itself....and it's not my flying that is doing that!

MSN Flight Sim on the other hand, is worthy product if you are looking to experience flight in the safety of your armchair. It accelerated my training and saved me big $$$$ in repeated hover lessons. A very realistic and excellent tool for instrument training, too.

DON'T BUY X-PLANE GARBAGE!!! POS!!!

Modern take on a classic

Great version of Monopoly. Definitely recommended for those who love good ol' board games on their Mac. Well worth the $20.
