Total War™: ROME II - Blood & Gore Icon
Disappointing
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Oct 2nd 2017

Not as gory as shown in the trailer.I thought of buying this hoping to add some realism

and terror effect to my game.

The Sims 2 Super Collection Icon
Always a fun game to play
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Sep 16th 2017

Sims 2 Collection is more awesome to play because all the dlcs are in the package.While

original stand alone Sims 2 by itself has already so much to offer this pack packs more

fun than ever.Sims is a simulation game that is one of the best in its genre.

Total War™: ATTILA Icon
Very immersive game
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Mar 3rd 2017

I bought this on Steam while it's on sale.The game plays really great when I subscribed to the many mods it has.Very excellent and exciting.Reason why I'm not playing any other games for months now.One of the best ever that I've played.

Deponia - The Complete Journey Icon
Its ok
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Jan 15th 2017

The game is really with a good sense of humor and a beautiful graphic work but I find it very difficult to solve the puzzles which is basically what the game is all about.Maybe it's just me but the game could have been more fun if the puzzles are not so difficult and one could move along the storyline with the sense of humor and very beautiful graphics to enjoy.

Call of Duty 2 Icon
Good but not the best
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Jan 17th 2016

Still exciting but not good enough to beat the original CoD.Graphics are better though.

Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror Remastered Icon
Beautiful animation with an interesting story
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Jan 17th 2016

The graphics are very good with a funny sense of humour.Could have given this a 5 star rating if only I can solve the puzzle near the end to solve the mystery.

Atlantis Evolution Icon
Fun with very beautiful graphics
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Dec 27th 2015

The game is filled with mysteries which makes it very compelling to play.Together with the beautiful graphics this makes me rate it as very excellent.

Memoria Icon
Excellent game
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Dec 27th 2015

The game story with its complex gameplay stopped me short of giving it a five star.I actually found myself stuck because of the difficulty of finding the right move.Nevertheless I still find it very compelling to play if only I can get the mood to play.

GL Golf Icon
Very enjoyable game
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Aug 3rd 2015

I had this in my old power pc mac and the various golf courses are really fun to play.You will get to play in such courses,of course in animated form,such as Augusta,Torry Pines etc.,where golf's most prestigious tournaments are held.Plus periodically new courses are added.And game controls are great too.Plus effects such as the wind.Not kidding but I even got an eagle,a hole in one.

Legion Arena Icon
Great but very expensive
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Jul 12th 2015

I've played a demo of this game in my old mac and I would have bought it had my mac meet the requirements.Had a resemblance to the original rome total war but not exactly.Because legion arena is more tactical than strategy.Nevertheless the joy is immense in seeing the battle play out in detail plus it is more on building up your army rather than your cities.I would have purchased it if the price is more reasonable.

R.U.S.E. Icon
Great strategy game
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Jul 12th 2015

This is a very enjoyable game to play.The only reason I didn't rate it as a five star is because you can't view the battles in detail but other than that it is as immersive as the best strategy games come.

Expeditions: Conquistador Icon
Very engaging game
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Jul 6th 2015

Once I started playing it I can't stop playing for hours.Maybe not in the league of the most awarded games but still very exciting and hard to put down.

BioShock Infinite: Columbia's Finest Icon
Bioshock Infinite
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Jul 1st 2015

Definitely one of the best games I've played regardless of any genre.The game is filled with action as any fps game is but the thing that caught me by surprise is the mysterious storyline in the game.Sometimes I wished more of the story progress than the shooting part which is very repetitive as any fps game is.But the unravelling of the mysterious plot kept me hooked and sometimes feel creepy.Kept me always in suspense on how the game would end.

Empire: Total War™ - Gold Edition Icon
Excellent
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Mar 31st 2015

The game is very excellent although not as good as Rome Total War which to me is the best strategy game I've played.This could have been as good as RTW but Creative Assembly deviated from the graphic style and gameplay of RTW though not as much.The rest of the TW series I'm having second thoughts about purchasing after the very disappointing Rome 2.I hope Creative Assembly would return to making games with the RTW style graphics and game play.After all it would not look the same if it is a different historical period like,say,about the crusades or world war 1 or 2 or the medieval period.

Sid Meier's Pirates! Icon
Awesome gameplay and graphics
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Nov 29th 2014

I like this game very much.It is actually a strategy and rpg game at the same time.You play the role of a member of an indebted family that was oppressed by its creditor and scattered to different locations.You can choose your own path whether to rescue them or go on your own as a pirate.

When you choose to be a pirate you can also become an agent of one of the colonial powers and receive promotions.

What blew me away in this game is the awesomely beautiful and colorful graphics which is better than most animated and cgi movies and games.And the gameplay won't let you down either as you can engage in individual swordfights or with your men or battle warships and capture treasure laden ones in the high seas.Plus you can even capture the heart of a settlement governor's daughter;just master those dance steps at the ballroom when you get invited.How about that getting treasure and fame when you defeat fellow pirates the more notorious the more famous you become.And fill your coffers with captured treasures but also keep your men happy.And finally meet seductive barmaids at the tavern as well as get information from a mysterious guy and the gossipy bartender.

This game is very entertaining and amusing to play.Leaves me feeling glad and cheerful after a game.

Total War: ROME II: Emperor Edition Icon
I love to have this game
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Sep 29th 2014

I don't have this game yet but based on my previous Rome Total War game this one will definitely outshine its predecessor by a mile if only the controls will work well and the Steam account requirement is not needed.I have a not so pleasant experience with Steam.That's the only reservation I had about purchasing this game.Please Macgame store omit the steam account.Just let it be purchased on a stand alone basis just like RTW.Thank you.

Rome: Total War™ - Alexander Icon
Alexander expansion pack to Rome Total War
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Jun 22nd 2014

Eversince I bought this and installed it my RTW control settings went bonkers.I could not save the game after a battle has been won on the battle map.It only saves after a battle is fought automatically or has been lost.I just want my old point and click settings.Playing this now is like using a computer with the old MS-DOS rather than the modern point and click system.It feels not like a Mac OS is installed in my computer whenever I play this game.I will gladly return a few bonus points just to get the old version of RTW that runs smoothly.

Rome: Total War™ - Gold Edition Icon
Rome Total War Gold Edition
by ronaldo S. Ortiz, Philippines - Feb 28th 2014

The best game I've ever had. I played this game continuously last Dec. I almost collapsed from exhaustion because I played it straight for more than twelve hours. It is that addictive. I could have carried on if the game had not finally stopped due to continuous play. There were so many options to conduct the campaign mode. You could become an armchair general playing this game. It is not just about battles but also about governing wisely which will enable you to become the Roman emperor. Plus when fighting battles especially the big and decisive ones you could get the feel of how confusing a real battle is.

The Barbarian Invasion expansion is just as immersive as the original game is. Playing it even in the easiest mode requires a lot of patience and skills so that the result is immensely satisfying. This is not the game for the faint of heart who easily gets discouraged after meeting a lot of defeats. This is the most challenging game indeed that I ever played.
