Crusader Kings II: Horse Lords Content Pack Icon
My OCD with DLC kicks in
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Nov 18th 2015

Bought this because I bought the horse Lords expansion. It's a case of going for the whole set of DLC on this title as It's cheap and I have the other content packs, you can see where I'm going with this...

R.U.S.E.: Pack Of The Rising Sun DLC Pack Icon
Worth it if you like RUSE
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Nov 18th 2015

Japanese infantry and armour and quite a lot in total, Makes a nice change to play with, especially in skirmish mode and not expensive, pick it up in a sale, well worth it.

BioShock Infinite Icon
Must Own Game
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Nov 18th 2015

Really stylised world, great graphics, great story, absolutely love this game.
Lot's of reviews online rave about this game and possibly overhype it. Don't get me wrong, when you play it you will know that some things have been overlooked. But I also get it!
It's so immersive and such an adrenaline rush while you are in the game world that it's all about the feeling you get while you are in Columbia.

Crusader Kings II: Horse Lords Icon
DLC addiction
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Nov 18th 2015

This is a case of buying it because you have all the other expansions. All the expansions in this series add something to either the dates you start your campaign from or encompassing new areas of the world historically, If you are into this game it's a case of getting the full set of DLC as it's not that expensive and who wants a bit that's missing?

BioShock Infinite: Clash in the Clouds Icon
Infinite on steroids
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Nov 18th 2015

This is a mini wave based FPS game based in the Bioshock infinite universe. Take the combat from the main game, start with some base powers, complete a level, get rewards, build your character up, rinse and repeat. Fun really, well I enjoyed it!

BioShock Infinite: Columbia's Finest Icon
Worthwhile DLC at last
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Nov 18th 2015

I thought it would be a good idea to play BioShock Infinite on hard as I knew that this DLC when picked up in game might be overpowered. Glad I did. Doesn't make the game easier, just helps you decide your early vigour and weapon builds sooner, like planning ahead in one go rather than in bits. I definitely think this enhanced the game for me and made me enjoy the early game more.

Glowfish Icon
Sedate and relaxing but...
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

Sedate and relaxing but gets boring and repetitive very quickly. A time waster but more for the iOS platform than a mac.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Icon
Got bored very quickly
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

Ok game but the story really lets it down, so cliche and unbelievable how gullible and stupid some of the main characters are. This really did not bode well as I started to pick holes in an old game that was probably highly rated in it's day.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast Icon
Quite enjoyable
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

Old game and boy does it look it. Get past the first few hours till you get your light sabre and you will start to enjoy this game. Pick it up on sale though.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition Icon
Why do I like this game?
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

Really enjoying playing this, even after the pretty average reviews I've seen. Nice enough graphics for the age of the game, runs really well and what can I say about Darth and the first level. So overpowered but a taste of what's to come. Just enjoying hacking and slashing using the power of the force...

Star Wars: Empire at War Icon
RTS with that Star Wars feel
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

Bought the Star Wars Starter pack just for this game. I knew the game had problems with the newer operating systems, but I thought for $5 dollars the other games will soften the blow if it doesn't work. Well it does work on Yosemite 10.3 and have checked out the save problem and I think it's been fixed as I had no problems. Am enjoying this game so far and this in my opinion is the best Star Wars game released.

Airport Madness 4 Icon
So addictive
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

Got this game free and thought I'd quickly give it a go. well what can I say?
A flash game with an iOS feel and that one more go feeling, where does the time go?

Star Wars Starter Pack Icon
No Brainer
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

Can't believe that all these games cost $5 in the sale. Even if you only really want one game in the collection It's like buy one get four free!

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Icon
Overrated, but still good
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

Let's face it, it's an old game and RPG's have moved on a lot since this was first released.
Playing it gives that good old nostalgia feel and it does have that Star Wars vibe that makes you want to see more. The hook with this game is really the story. So if you can see past the dated graphics and combat system it's really worth playing

Endless Legend Emperor Pack Icon
Interesting...
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Jun 28th 2015

I really like this game. Interesting take on the 4x strategy game graphics wise and I like the hero system, a la endless space. The thing I really can't understand is why the mac port is still 32 bit and not 64 bit, like the PC version after all this time. Also not sure about the combat system which I think should have been more like Age of Wonders 3 as the fights are really not that in-depth.

Journey of a Roach Icon
Ok little game
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Dec 2nd 2014

Got this free and was pleasantly surprised with it. Enjoying playing this with my son, he thinks it's great, not sure I would have bought it though. Passes the time.

Door Kickers Icon
What a Gem of a Game
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Dec 2nd 2014

Got this in the sale and I can't put this down. It's got that one more go factor in spades as you develop your squad to do everything perfectly. There's even a talent tree in there! This game is one of the best I've bought in ages, I really can't recommend this enough and the Devs are constantly updating it with new data. No brainer buy this.

Warlock 2: The Exiled Icon
Enjoyable strategy light game
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Dec 2nd 2014

I'm quite surprised how critical some people have been of this game. Too many comparisons to other 4X games for my liking. Just take it for what it is, a fantasy war game with a light smattering of building structures to balance your gold, food and mana income so you can go to war...

Warlock 2: Wrath of the Nagas Icon
DLC overpriced
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Dec 2nd 2014

I bought Warlock the Exiled as well as this in the sale. Adds the Nagas plus new units and characters into the game, but the main thing is it adds water to the land mass as well which requires different strategies. Good addition to the base game. The thing is I would never have bought this DLC if it was full price.

Warlock 2: Spectacular Spell Pack Icon
OK but not necessary
by ack5ter, United Kingdom - Dec 2nd 2014

Got this in the sale, adds new spells which expands your repertoire but in my opinion, doesn't add much to the gameplay...
