Limited appeal
by David LM McIntyre, USA - Jun 30th 2007

Interesting variation on many older buy low sell high free market games, the story line runs out pretty quickly and one is left with nothing to do but travel from port to port buying and selling - which loses its appeal very quickly

Hearts of Iron 2 Icon
Thought it was something it wasn't!
by Chad P. Coady, USA - Jun 30th 2007

The screenshots and description lead you to believe that the game is similar to the old 'Axis and Allies' setup. The design and flow of that interface was easy and didn't require a textbook to figure how use it! If you're not looking for a college education on idiot game design then I suggest you look elsewhere!

It's a harsh judgment, but as an avid strategy gamer I can't believe how poorly put together this was...

this might be a fun game if i could get past the first level - it freezes and does not allow me to go to next task!

Diablo Battle Chest Icon
Just Plain Awesome!
by Jonathan Larson, USA - Jun 24th 2007

I've had this game since it first came out and it never gets old. If you're into a good RPG game, this is a must have!! Even though it's almost 7 years old, people are always playing online. The community is great! I highly recommend this game.

Brain Boosters Icon
Brain Boosters
by Eric Bulmer, USA - May 26th 2007

Choppy graphics, and instead of reading the questions, the "professor" just jiggles around while his speech appears in comic style bubbles as text. The interface was non-intuitive, allowing control of a large piece of chalk on a chalkboard, when the missing letters actually had to be typed via keyboard. All this game boosted was my boredom, and I wouldn't inflict it on kids.

Nanny Mania Icon
Not really a challenge
by Donna Fischman, USA - May 26th 2007

Three characters, ten levels each and yet they are all pretty much the same. If you are looking for a game that gets harder as you progress, this is not really for you.

Fish Tycoon Icon
As Relaxing as the Real Thing
by Eric Bulmer, USA - May 26th 2007

As actual "brick and mortar" fish tank folks, we love Fish Tycoon. The Realtime aspect is great. You don't so much "play" this game as set it up and check in occasionally. Variable gamespeed insures that you won't kill off your fish, and the quest for the 7 magic species keep the intrigue going. That said, the inventory system needs tweaking-if you've already some ich medicine in your inventory, you can't buy fungus medicine without its displacing the ich medicine you already own, and vice versa-that's odd-why can't you stock both medicines at once? This sim is great for kids, and for adults who don't want to (or don't have the time to) deal with the minutia of more complicated fish sim games.

Jewel Match Icon
It Was Nice!
by Paula McLeland, USA - May 26th 2007

Jewel Match is a lot of fun. The only complaint I have is I think the trail should be a lot longer on this game. I never had a crash, and it runs very smooth.

My Review
by John Hunter, England - May 26th 2007

This is a very nice game to look at. The graphics are good, colourful and bright. The problem is with the gameplay. Basically the game is just way too repetitive. Each level is essentially the same, just in a different location and it doesn't get any harder. You have the same time limit - 5 minutes - and have to find the same amount of objects - 15 - at both the beginning and end of the game.

Difficulty settings would have been good, decreased time limits as you progress, more objects to find per level the further you get into the game, thinks like this would all have enhanced the gameplay and stopped it from being quite dull.

And what exactly is the benefit of getting a gold star? You can progress to the next level by finding only 10 of the 15 items on a level, and there doesn't seem to be any advantage I can make out to getting all 15 and a gold star, other than the satisfaction of knowing you'd found everything.

So to sum up, a nice, if ultimately, boring game. Good to while away a couple of hours, but there are better games on this site (Kudos, for example) for the same money.

Tradewinds Legends Icon
Good Joss!
by HappyPig, USA - May 19th 2007

I loved this game - it reminded me of playing Taipan on the old Apple ][s with the trade and ship battles. Five stars just for that!

Prey Icon
Awesome Twist on Traditional Shooters
by Martin Graham, USA - May 9th 2007

I downloaded and played the demo on my iMac 17" 2.0 Core2Duo with a gig of ram, and it was awesome! Graphics are fabulous and the gameplay is great! The story line is pretty intriguing as well. Sound is great! I love the Native American twist on the music when you go into "spirit mode" during the out of body experience. In fact, I love the way the game incorporates some characteristics not previously found in FPS games. Great concept for a game.

I will warn you that the language is pretty offensive, but the nice thing is that you can turn the profanity off in the game options. That is a great bonus considering that I have a 6 year old in my home and I don't want him hearing the "F" word in every scene when I'm playing. Not to mention the fact that I hate foul language myself. All in all, if the full game is as good as the demo, then I think this could rival some of the mainline FPS games on the market. I think this will be a homerun based on what I have seen thus far.

Hearts of Iron 2: Doomsday Icon
for those with plenty of time
by Ubermaximus, Canada - May 4th 2007

Granted, this game is not for adreneline junky, the frag king, or the Orc commander. But for those who thought Hitler, Stalin, Rosevelt or Churchill could have done things differently this game is for you. Yes, with the millions of calculations it is running all the time the game can lag, but I still find it manageable with my macmini 1.2ghz. If you know some ww2 history and want massive scale strategy this game can be the cat's pajamas.

Ouba: The Great Journey Icon
Bugs add to gameplay challenge!
by Nathalie Baldwin, USA - Apr 22nd 2007

This is not an easy game. The goal is to match blocks to free the cute little boogying Ouba's but to do so you must also avoid causing the blocks to freeze or the game itself to crash entirely. Addicting and annoying. Would be a super game if it didn't crash and was less laggy.
