Unity Indie

Amazing A+

Unity is the be all and end all of indie game development on the Mac. No other environment delivers the ease of use, powerful tools, and slick interface for designing truly amazing games. The graphical capabilities are awe inspiring and the programming has been greatly simplified without any loss in raw power or control over your game. If you've been thinking about jumping into game development, look no further than Unity.

Star Wars: Empire At War

Passable Mac Game

EaW leaves a lot to be desired. The graphics are mediocre by today's standards even for a game of this age. If Aspyr is going to constrain us to Intel-only chipsets then we'd better be seeing some MIND BLOWING graphical capabilities and unit caps.

If you're looking for good space combat, go for Homeworld 2. If you want good ground combat (Star Wars style) get Galactic Battlegrounds. Old games, but both deliver on fronts that Empire at War fails.

I absolutely loathe some of the gameplay elements here, especially the artificial game barriers that the game imposes. For example, why can't I land my entire army during a ground invasion? No, in order to land my full force I need to capture reinforcement points scattered across the map. WHY? It makes absolutely no sense.

I should never be scratching my head and chaffing at gameplay barriers. If you can't make a game without these idiotic elements, then don't make the game at all.
