Purchased this game down loaded it and can not open it once it was installed. I got an IMac and this is the first one that has done this for me.

Don't waste your money
by DaveF, USA - Nov 28th 2011

Good up to a point, then the game play is seriously flawed (plus I think the game has a few bugs). Glad it was on sale for $2.49, otherwise I would have been ticked.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Icon
Fantastic!
by Rimon, Netherlands - Nov 28th 2011

Lion 10.7.2 compatible on two MacBooks! Played on a MacBook Pro 17 inch i7 8GB RAM and on a MacBook Air with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13 GHz with 4 GB RAM.

Grand Theft Auto Vice City is a great game, hands down. This game is not better than GTA San Andreas, but it is still a great game.

The one thing that makes it great is that it is very fun to play. The storyline in Grand Theft Auto Vice City is also very memorable. All the characters in the game are very funny and cool.

Vice City takes place in the 1980s. The surrounding area is gorgeous and really gives you a feel of how 1980s Miami really was.

Would I recommend this game well yes and no. Yes if you like this kind of game and are not sensitive to the violence level. No if you are not a fan of this type of game and are very sensitive to the violence level in the game. But if you are looking for a long lasting action game then you couldn't go wrong with GTA Vice City.

Grand Theft Auto 3 Icon
A fantastic almost open environment game!
by Rimon, Netherlands - Nov 28th 2011

Lion 10.7.2 compatible on two MacBooks! Played on a MacBook Pro 17 inch i7 8GB RAM and on a MacBook Air with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13 GHz with 4 GB RAM.

Overall, this game is awesome and was awesome back in 2001. It has withstood the test of time.

It's basically counter strike with only 4 or 5 guns and vehicles.

Cave Quest Icon
I'd recommend it
by Dawn Johnson, USA - Nov 25th 2011

For the price, this little game delivers. The match three portions of the game are cleverly embedded as responses to clues about the story line, but hints are available if you get stuck. Although I finished the game in just a couple of days, I really enjoyed it! Hoping to see another like this from the developer.

Great Monster Trouble Icon
Great Game
by AlterEgo01, - Nov 25th 2011

If you like a 3D games where must to defend your village from different kind of monsters this is the best game around.

It's different from all other defense and strategy games because here, there is real action and wonderful graphics.

You never play in the same way each level and positioning and movement strategy is important.

This game is "my choice" and I'm sure it will be loved by most game players. 5 Shiny Stars.

The Tiny Bang Story Icon
Worth Every Penny
by Admin Account, USA - Nov 25th 2011

I admit this is basically a happy version of Machinarium, but that makes it even better for my 8 year old son. One reviewer mentioned that it wasn't anywhere near as good as Machinarium because he was just finding parts and he couldn't find them all. Although this game does have a lot of "I SPY" in it, you eventually use the parts you find to assemble puzzles that you have to solve. These are generally a bit easier than Machinarium's puzzles which is good for my son since we had to solve many of the hard puzzles for him in Machinarium.

So, if you're looking for something as involved as Machinarium, this will disappoint. But if you just want some family game time that's not mind-numbing, you couldn't ask for more!

Hearts of Iron 2 Complete Icon
Massive
by Ophelious, USA - Nov 25th 2011

Overall, I enjoy this game. In some ways it has a lot of repeat play value, but the reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it's not particularly exciting. In the end, there is no other thing to do than continue attacking until you can take over the whole world. There comes a point in the game where either you have a shot at doing it or you know you can't. At that point, the game become boring.

THE GOOD
1. Great level of historical detail for the major players
2. Many options for controlling your countries economy, military, and technology
3. Grand scale,
4. Many playable nations,
5. Real time

CONS
1. Hard to figure out (though once you do, it's not hard to play.)
2. Not as fun if you're not one of the major powers.
3. Complicated to manage air, sea, and land combat at the same time.
4. Many events are "locked" historically and affect things. For example, Poland is always going to get attacked by the Germans at some point.
5. Some countries, such as Poland, are not winnable.
6. It's possible to flush a huge amount of time into this game.

I play the Mac version. DON'T rely on the specs given here. I use a G4 1.67 with 2GB of RAM and this game runs adequately to poorly. There are no 3D elements or real animation to speak of, and the graphics blow, so it's either poorly coded or just that plain massive. There specs of a G3 500 seem just plain insane to me.

Duke Nukem Forever Icon
Hail to the king, baby!
by Anarath, Germany - Nov 24th 2011

Like Jorge Cabral already described it in his review the game is fun and its also what I did expect of it.

Hell, its been in development for over a decade now. They began from scratch four times (or more, I didn't remember). Also developers switched constantly. Its a wonder that the game really has been released.

Sure, the graphics are lacking behind but thats something I don't care about. We all knew something like that would happen as a result of being in chaotic development for ages. In the end I'm just grateful that it was not going to be vaporware.

On top of that the game got me the second Duke said the first sentence and it felt like before. I had fun like I did playing Duke Nukem 3D the first time. Hunting down aliens, saving the world (and its babes) and laughing about Dukes way of commenting things.

The Settlers 7 Paths to a Kingdom: Deluxe Gold Edition Icon
Good game, bad DRM, non-optimized RAM usage
by Anarath, Germany - Nov 24th 2011

Overall its a good game. The gameplay is fun, the graphics are good, the campaign is well made even though its predictable. Multiplayer works well too, but it lacks a massive community like Starcraft 2 has for example. So its no bug if you have an empty session browser sometimes.

A real drawback is that you aren't able to play while being offline because of the strict DRM. So no settling if theres no internet connection available.

I also run into a problem where the game slows down and memory errors occur leading to a crash of the game. This seem only to happen on very long games and probably is caused by the Cider port. I'm on a Mac Pro with 8 GB of memory and I got the message there is not enough memory remaining and the game will quit after playing for a long while. Felt like a bad joke. On the other hand: Which game doesn't have bugs? (And its the only one I run into so far.)

Anyway, I would definitley buy it again.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Icon
Minor errors but overall excellent.
by Andrew L., USA - Nov 23rd 2011

I can second some of the other reviewer's complaints (Luiz) and offer insight on those errors. The sound does in fact bug if the sfx/music is meant to be more ambient or heard through a building. For example standing out the doors by the Malibu club, the music from within the club sounds really "bit crushing" and unnatural. Everything else sounds fine (radio, gun shots, etc), it's all good.

As far as flying the copters, you can adjust the controls to make it less frustrating when using a laptop. For example put the "lean forward" and "back" commands on mouse buttons, so you can click those while using up/down/left/right with keyboard keys. Sort of balances it out but still takes getting used to. It is possible with some clever reassigning.

What else can I say? It's otherwise the same great classic with the updated Xbox edition graphics and runs flawlessly on my mb running Snow Leopard. My fav of the PS2/Xbox1 era of GTA games.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Icon
last but not least
by gihaddd, USA - Nov 23rd 2011

The mother of all Gta's, san Andreas has a lot to bring to the table. Out of the trilogy this one has the most variety, but compared to gta3 and vc it's not as smooth. People have complained about slow framerate issues and bugs, but the only problems i've noticed is texture load in, which is expected in any free roam game especially as large as san andreas. Other than that game runs perfectly fine on my mid 09 mbp 2.53 ghz 9400m. 150+ vehicles, boats, planes, helicopters, bikes, jetpacks, and a whole lot of weapons is what makes this a must buy. get it while its cheap.

Grand Theft Auto 3 Icon
Reminds me of childhood
by gihaddd, USA - Nov 23rd 2011

Gta 3 was a masterpiece of a game back in 99 and I still cant seem to put it down today. Out of the trilogy this is personally my favorite. It runs relatively smooth on my mid 09 mbp 2.53ghz 9400m, but out of the trilogy vice city runs the best on mac. Irregardless this is a game no one should turn down. Controls are intuitive and simple enough to grasp and the vehicle physics were, and are still, amazing. This one is personally my favorite because it created a whole different genre of gaming and the open world really gave the player a sense of freedom compared to most the linear titles released around the same time.
