Victoria Complete Icon
Huge
by Ophelious, USA - Mar 31st 2011

The first time I played this game I turned it off after about 5 minutes because I had no idea what was going on. There is no tutorial and the instructions, while accurate, were not comprehensive. I waited a few days and tried again, this time getting about an hour into the game.

Each time I played I learned a little more about what I had to do to be successful, and now I feel like I know about 75% of the game's "secrets". Overall, it is very detailed and gives a wide choice of countries to be. The only trouble is that many countries are no fun to play because they have so little money all you can do is sit and watch time go buy.

Expect a big learning curve with this game, unless you have played Hearts of Iron (which is similar.) It is not much like Rome or EU3 in mechanics.

The graphics are basic and options for modifying the game very limited. For the Mac version, I have heard legend of a patch to improve performance but have never actually found it (other than broken links) so I think this game has been taken out to pasture.

The best parts of the game are the great level of control one has over history. The worst part of the game is that, as your empire grows, managing it becomes a bit tedious. Also the fact that it takes about 10 hours to really get the hang of the game.

Gratuitous Space Battles CE Icon
Simple and very fun
by Brian Wilson, USA - Mar 30th 2011

The game is a variation on classic tower defense games, and takes you out of the pilots seat and into the admirals war room. There's no worrying about whether or not you have quick hand-eye coordination, rather it's all about your ability to adequately plan for a battle, exploiting your opponents weaknesses and taking advantage of the environment to (hopefully) enhance your own ships capabilities.

One negative note is that once the battle commences, you take a very back seat to the action and can only watch as your fleet either crushes the enemy, or is destroyed as they blast you into pieces.

Mystery Case Files: 13th Skull Collector's Edition Icon
Excellent game!!! Took me about 7.5 hours to solve completely.
by Heather Macpherson, Canada - Mar 30th 2011

And when I thought I was done... I wasn't. I was very happy with the length of the game.

Excellent value for the money! Graphics are beautiful, story is engaging, and it's a great mix of puzzle solving and HO.
Only caution would be that it may be a little scary (and occasionally inappropriate) for younger gamers. But little kids aren't their core audience anyways, so it doesn't really matter.

I think this was the best of Mystery Case Files yet... by far!

Supreme Commander 2 Icon
Very good successor to TA
by Shaun, USA - Mar 28th 2011

Very good successor to TA but I did like haveing lots of different types of units to choose from where SupCom2 puts more emphasis on just a few unit types that can be upgraded.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction Icon
Infinitely Frustrating.
by ChemicalPony, USA - Mar 27th 2011

After 17 hours of straight downloading, and 10 hours of installation issues, this game just doesn't want to work. I've gotten more errors than any other game I've ever played. And after countless hours trying to fix them I still can't play. Oh well, it looks amazing. I can't wait to play.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction Icon
Fantastic Game
by gaminghero, USA - Mar 27th 2011

The Only problem with this game is the lag, so put the quality on low, BUT DON'T WORRY IT STILL LOOKS FANTASTIC! This is definitely worth buying, considering the fail of Assassins Creed 2 for the Mac. Any other questions or want a full review? Email me at demonwithinproductions@gmail.com. I'll also be making a full playthrough on my youtube account: DemonWithinStudios.

Medieval Battlefields Icon
4 Elements Icon
4 Elements
by Nory Saltman, Canada - Mar 26th 2011

This game has beautiful graphics and is a joy to play, until the last two levels. It seems unfair that up until that point the gameplay is adequately challenging but doable. Then all of a sudden the last two levels are ridiculously difficult. I was able to finally pass the second-to-last level only to be confronted by the last level which I found impossible, at least with a laptop computer using a touchpad. It seemed as though the designers out-sourced the last two levels to an evil imp with lightning fast fingers. I had to start a new game without finishing the first one, so sad! If you don't mind missing out on the end of the game, then buy it, you won't regret it.

Won't run on MacBook Pro w. 4 GB RAM!
by HKG, USA - Mar 26th 2011

This game looks like it might be fun. Lucky for me I downloaded a demo before buying. This *will not run* on my MacBook Pro w. 4 GB RAM, running Leopard. It crashes before opening. Beware!

Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water's Edge Icon
Loved it!
by Adventure Lover, USA - Mar 26th 2011

Loved this game. The setting was beautiful and interesting and really made me crave Japanese food! The storyline is interesting and at times makes you really wonder what the conclusion will be.

The game also includes a lot of Japanese puzzle mini games like filling out sudoku and nanograms. These can be pretty complicated and take a lot of time but I still really enjoyed them.

Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill REMASTERED Icon
Awful and Short
by Adventure Lover, USA - Mar 26th 2011

The other Nancy Drew games are fun and interesting but this one had puzzles that were not intuitive and the game only took about an hour to play! Don't buy it!

Midnight Mysteries: Salem Witch Trials Collector's Edition Icon
Great Game
by Mya Storey, USA - Mar 25th 2011

This is an awesome game and is one of the few that I have had the patience to play the story mode multiple times to get all the awards. My only problems are that the full screen mode does not fill the screen and the third or fourth time through the story mode I have hit a glitch in the game that won't allow me to progress to the next task. This would not be so bad but it seems that I am going to have to loose all of the awards and unlocked features that I have accumulated to reset the game. Other than this it is an awesome game.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Hard Evidence Icon
Glitch in last case
by livystar, USA - Mar 24th 2011

In the last case "The Peacemaker" there's a glitch when the evidence folder is open and your task is to remove the cell phone from the pants with the gloves, but once you click on the gloves as your retrieval tool the glove won't let you click on anything and you can't get out of the folder. You're stuck. I can't get past that and thus can't finish the game!
