Build It Green! Back to the Beach Icon
FATE Icon
Diablo-lite
by Brian Marsteller, USA - Jan 18th 2011

If you are a fan of Diablo or Diablo II, you will like this game. It plays nearly the same, with some improvements both graphically and in terms of some features, which just seem more refined here. It will definitely give you the Diablo fun you need while waiting for Diablo 3 to come out.

On the downside, the amount of character customization suffers somewhat as compared to the Diablo games, with simpler types of skills, and without any class-specific skills (there are no skills at all, in fact), and starting characteristics that favor a fighter type. In addition, the levels do start to get a bit repetitive, and are often too tightly packed with enemies, even close to the entrance, so that you can be attacked by an unbearable swarm of enemies before you have a chance to react.

On the plus side, the pet (either a cat or dog) is a big improvement to the Diablo formula, which can fight alongside you as well as return to town to sell extra gear you find along the way. They also work as a nice extra storage space as you explore. The game also features a relatively simple mini-game of fishing, where you can find rare gear as well as an assortment of fish that can be used to shapechange your pet into fearsome beasts that can fight for you in different ways. The gear you can find through fishing is often much better than you find otherwise, so you might find yourself sitting for hours just fishing at some spot you find deep in the dungeon.

Overall, the game seems like the first Diablo with some enhanced features from Diablo II, and some new ideas all its own. It's a great fix for any Diablo fan, although the repetitive and overly populated levels can make the game drag after awhile. Easily worth the $20 entrance fee.

by Molly, USA - Jan 16th 2011

This is a beautifully illustrated game, and it's easy to learn the game mechanics right away. Even if you don't consider yourself "a gamer" and you're looking fora fantasy escape, similar to Myst (not as challenging) then this is it. I demand a sequel!

Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove Collector's Edition Icon
Another good MCF game
by Sky Yoshimura, USA - Jan 16th 2011

I enjoyed this Hidden Object/puzzle game. This was probably the most well produced MCF game I've played. It had a nice little story and some actual video footage. Figuring out what to do next wasn't always obvious. Since several scenes are searched multiple times, I spent a lot of time running around town, revisiting rooms whenever I got stuck. Luckily a journal, walk through and hints were there to help me out. The H.O. part of it wasn't too difficult; the morphing objects were much harder because you don't know what you're looking for. I finished the game in under 6 hours (using only a few hints). But if you take the time to actually hunt down all of the morphing objects, I could see how it would take you much longer. The behind the scenes extras were a nice touch.

Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove Collector's Edition Icon
MCF is always fun
by SDaugh, USA - Jan 15th 2011

I always enjoy MCF games. While I have my favorites like others, they are always a fun time. Dire Grove is a good offering. Not my favorite in the series, but still better than most other hidden object type games that I've tried.

Build-a-lot 4: Power Source Icon
Pretty good game
by SDaugh, USA - Jan 15th 2011

I got this game in a bundle pack, and since I had played one of the earlier games in this series before, I thought I wouldn't enjoy it much. Turns out though, that after giving this #4 a try, I wound up playing it for a very long time. Plenty of challenges so far, and I'm not finished yet. I think the best part, is that I haven't gotten frustrated with it, even when I've failed levels and had to redo them.

Even Better!

I thought the 1st one was great entertainment but this is even better. You learn to be organized in a short period of time. The graphics are a laugh. Now I tip my hat to ALL in the Service industry! Way to go....

A Gypsy's Tale
by Angela Petro, USA - Jan 15th 2011

I am able to play the game which is enough of a challenge for me but yet not to difficult for me to figure out what to do next. I loved the scenery. I would like to play more games like the Gypsy's Tale.

Delicious - Emily's Holiday Season Icon
The #1 best game I have tried.
by Dawn Wheat, USA - Jan 15th 2011

I bought this game last year and played it again this year. My sister also enjoyed it. Each level is different and challenging. I let some kids play this game and it frustrated them too many things to remember, so this is a game that may be better suited for adults and older children. The graphics and art is amazing, and it has an interesting story line. Very challenging. I still have not made it all the way through and finding all the mice, meeting all the challenges 100%. This is my favorite game of all the games I have bought.

Great game!
by Dawn Wheat, USA - Jan 15th 2011

Wonderful graphics and art. This game really help my attention and my sister loved it too. Unlike some games, when you are done, you don't want to play it again. But with this game, it is still fun on a second or third round. Great for all ages but older kids and adults will probably enjoy it more. I let some kids play it and it frustrated them, because there is just too much to remember.

Cool game
by George D Johnson Jr, USA - Jan 15th 2011

This is a really cool game that my kids love. Much like the Disney game "Bugs Life". A must buy for kids. It is rated "E" I think.

Always come back to this game
by Kevin Vaughan, USA - Jan 15th 2011

Great word game. I love to see how many ruby and diamond tiles I can get on the screen at one time...not an easy task by a long shot, but doing so helped me get over 1,000,000 points. Wondering if there is a sequel on the way?

BioShock Icon
Amazing atmosphere and gameplay
by Wumpus, USA - Jan 15th 2011

BioShock is a revelation among shooters. A completely immersive and gripping world filling with themes and visuals you haven't seen before. Throw in great combat, RPG elements and excellent dialogue and characters and you have one the best FPS games ever made. Do yourself a favor and pick this up for yourself or a friend. Would you kindly?
