The Count of Monte Cristo
 – 

count of monte cristo

I bought this game just two days ago after I tested the demo product. Have I read the reviews first, I should have not bought this game coz all the reviews I read, I experience them too. Sadly, my sisters also bought the game. I just hope that the author/creator of this game could find ways to help us who have bought this one. I'm sure he has enough profit already to use to fix this problem in any way he/they can.

hope they could refresh the product and will notify us after they fix the problem coz my wife loves the game very much.

If you want to play, never sleep.

This game could be lots of fun if you could save your progress. Unfortunately, you can't. This is what happens: the next time you load the game, you're told that your character needs to sleep, BUT the sleep icon does not work, and so you cannot progress to the next day. I even tried to stop and save the game when my character still had (according to the game) two other activities to participate in, but when I opened that game, those activities were no longer available, it was time to sleep, AND the sleep icon did not work.
The result is that your character remains miserable, never progresses to "fulfill" his/her dreams, and you can only play one character-that is, if you wish to play eternally.
Very disappointing, because otherwise I would have really enjoyed this.

I have also downloaded this game from other sites, and encountered the exact same problem: it's a problem with the game, and not with the download site.

Fun!!

I downloaded the demo because the graphics looked great. The gameplay is fast-paced and fun, and the story and addition of different food items as you progress keeps it interesting. The only drawback is it's nearly impossible to score a perfect rating after the first couple of levels, and there's an awful lot of wrist action as you scramble to fill orders as quickly as possible. Despite that, this addictive little game is incredibly fun!

Lots of fun, but some problems

Downloaded this game on April 1st (may have been a clue there!) and played until I had to purchase. I purchased and continued, then after about an hour the sound died, then about 10 minutes later, the program quit. I uninstalled and downloaded again, same thing. The game is fun and has lots of levels and good play as long as you don't play too long. Once you restart, it works for.... around an hour. If it wasn't so much fun - the hour at a time - there wouldn't be a problem, but it is fun. I would recommend buying this game, maybe you won't have the same problems I do.

Jeopardy! Deluxe
 – 

Multi-player vs real opponents doesn't work!

I loved this game right up until I tried to play against two real (i.e. human) opponents. Each player has an assigned key on the computer for "buzzing in", specifically: the "control" key on the left side of the computer for player 1, the space bar for player 2, and the "control" key on the right side of the computer for player 3. That's fine- except that neither control key responded at all! Only the middle player could buzz in because only the space bar caused the computer to respond! On top of that, the three "buzz in" keys are not customizable, meaning there's no way to assign a different key for players 1 and 3! Not being able to play live opponents just kills the whole thing. Playing solo is far too easy, and even playing against two "hard" computer opponents means I'll only win maybe 98% of the time.

If you are *only* interested in playing in the "solo" or "computer opponents" modes, then this is a fantastic game and the best computer version of Jeopardy! ever (the total absence of Alex Trebek's likeness and voice notwithstanding). However, if you want to play aginst "live" opponents, this is a waste of money until such time as there is a bug fix for the "human opponents" mode.

Not worth $19.99

Game is too short, paid full price and received half of the game. This game states more parts of the world will be added later? This puzzle could have been so much more. Very disappointed.

Kult: Heretic Kingdoms
 – 

Way better then reviews will let you think.

First of I was not considering the game due its bad reviews. Glad I did give it a chance some months later.

The game use a 2d map for play with 3d for character, mobs, npcs and effects. As a devoted Lineage player I need to point out 3d isn't everything. The maps are well designed and still detailed even when zoomed close. Like Diablo 2 and Lineage the game use a 3rd person isometric view. As for the musical scores I have to mention that they are well composed and fit always to the storyline. The storyline itself is interesting and got me emotional involved.

Overall:
From the gaming experience Kult is comparable to Diablo 2 and Lineage. For me it was very addictive. I played it on a Sawtooth PowerMac G4 with 2GHz CPU upgrade, Radeon 9800 and maxed RAM. Cant complain about any bugs.

Dream Chronicles 2
 – 

Worth the Wait!

The Eternal Maze picks up where the first Dream Chronicles left off. (read about first one for story) There are many logic puzzles, some memory puzzles and mazes mixed in with the story of helping Lilith rescue her family. It can be quite challenging finding all 138 gems. It will certainly keep you entertained. The only real con is that it is a little on the short side, about 4 hours if you really have at it, six if you take your time. The was a great added feature and the most challenging for me. I definitely forsee a 3rd version am looking forward to it, I just hope it is longer!

Dream Chronicles 2
 – 

Great Sequel!

I bought both games 1&2 together and played them one after another and was hooked. They added some new types of puzzles to the 2nd that I really enjoyed, esp. the maze. You must collect many articles to solve the mystery and each level has numerous brainteasers. I found both games a little on the short side and that is my only real complaint. Great graphics, play and puzzles. I don't think it is the type of game I would replay. I would rather wait for a 3rd. I Recommend both Dream Chronicles 1 and 2.

Diablo Battle Chest
 – 

Masterful game that has yet to grow old

There is very little about Diablo II and its expansion that would be detrimental. This classic RPG helps define modern RPGs even today. The wonderful story, the sheer amount of content, and the amazing music and sound design help to weave an atmosphere of nerve-racking horror. If you have not played this game, you are missing out and should play this game!

NEAT DIVERSION

To be honest the story never has much bearing on just searching for objects. But, this game had the most cleverly hidden objects I've seen so far (and that's a lot). What I really enjoyed was the relaxing ending. YOU COULD EMPTY A ROOM! Something very satisfying about that when you've been pressured by the clock and then you can wind down with the epilogue and just enjoy yourself. I really commend the artists who created this game!

Fairway Solitaire

An excellent game!

I must say that I was quite surprised by this game. There are even commentators - one of whom's accent is Australian - but so are his comments. It's really quite amusing. The mini games are a lot of fun and the main game itself is very addictive. If you like Golf, you will likely enjoy this game.

Horrible graphics

I enjoyed playing this game for all of 5 minutes. The graphics were so horrible that I could not find many of the hidden objects and the cut scenes were horribly drawn. I would not recommend this game at all.

Brave Dwarves: Back for Treasures
 – 

Needs a LOT of work!!

I'm generally forgiving when games don't come across as "my cup of tea". However, I suspect the other 5 dwarves left the job rather than being associated with this effort that falls way too short.

Although they do mention that a gamepad/joystick isn't implemented, it's one glaring omission from the old 8-bit games that this game presumes to pay homage to. Too often you get killed because the keys don't work as responsely as they should. For some reason, the 1st level bad guys are just a square masking out the shape of a crocodile?/lizard?/who knows since you can't distinguish them. The instructions seem easy to understand, until you start the game.

Usually, I'd suggest some more work on the game but it seems that the programmer doesn't have the knowledge/desire to complete this unfinished program. Overall, a total embaressment for all involved who put out even this demo. Come to think of it, I still recall typing in by hand and saving on cassette tape (on my old Atari 400/800) games that looked worse but I can't recall any with this bad of playability.Better luck next time!

NOT ENOUGH

THE PUZZLES WERE TOO SIMPLE AND THE GAME LEADS TO BELIEVE YOU ARE OPENING UP OTHER WORLDS. HOWEVER, THERE ARE ONLY THREE SO THE DEMO IS REALLY ENOUGH. I COULD PLAY THE WHOLE GAME IN HALF AN HOUR. IT'S NOT THE KIND OF GAME YOU WOULD PLAY AGAIN BECAUSE THERE'S NOT ENOUGH TO CHALLENGE YOU. I HOPE THE SO CALLED ADDITIONS TO THE GAME ARE FREE BECAUSE IT'S NOT WORTH THE MONEY. LOT OF POTENTIAL WITH THE GRAPHICS BUT THAT'S IT.

Build-a-lot
 – 

It leaves you in two minds...

I decided to give this game a go because I like community type games that involve building houses or society management type stuff and after the demo hour I'm still not sure whether I want to buy it or not.

Don't get me wrong its a pretty good game to play, nothing really gripping about it but if you like this sort of game it's ok. It's main drawbacks for me though was that it took FAR too long to load. This is especially crucial when a time limit is imposed on the demo time. 6 minutes to load up and then I had to force quit because it wouldn't adjust to window view without freezing my computer.

In regards to control I think this game has a little too much digging power into my preferences. I understand that finding the name of the user is a neat trick so it can say the player name at the start but it also managed to change my background picture to the default setting so I'd like to know what other preferences it had access to.

Despite the slowness of loading and slight lag in gameplay between levels I really liked it, which is why I'm in two minds. I like the game for what it is but I don't think it has been executed well overall. I'm interested to see how everyone else felt about it.

Cars Radiator Springs Adventures
 – 

Not Child's Play!

I paid much more for this game than others I've bought for my grandchildren, and was more disappointed with it than any other. My kids wanted a race car game, and were not interested in the "activities". And no wonder! They were much too difficult for my 4-6 year olds. The "race" was ridiculous. They couldn't drive the cars around curves and crash into things. They could only shift gears at a proper time to win a drag race. Very disappointing.

Pretty Good Game!

Really enjoyed this hidden items game. Jason the little pooch is missing and you need to help the newest neighbor in the cul-de-sac find out where he is hiding or has he been dognapped? Graphics are quite clear and objects are cleaverly hidden in the neighbors homes, backyards, etc. Collect clovers in the home to gain extra hints. The clovers are continuously there so you never run out of hints, which is helpful. I didnot understand the significance of the laptop messages or the newspaper articles to the storyline, so I ended up skipping them and continuing with the searching of hidden items. I really like how some items were very easy to find and some were more difficult. The graphics were quite clear and easy to search. The sound to the game was interesting and quite real sounding, loved the neighborhood sounds. There are also objects moving in each scene which give it a real life quality. Overall, I thought this was one of the best hidden objects game I have played. Keep Miss Teri's Tales coming!!

not the best ......not the worst

It is not a very interesting story and you backtrack to the same 9 houses over and over. You get a weird email between each level and it doesn't make much sense or help the game at all. To get the clues you have to keep going back to a room and clicking on clovers (they are unlimited), A total waste of time. The mini games are quite easy, a jigsaw like puzzle and a lock combination puzzle. If you are just interested in finding objects then you might like it. It does not hold a canldle to MYSTERYCASE FILES or ESCAPE TO THE MUSEUM

Tomb Raider: Anniversary
 – 

Excellent

I missed Tomb Raider and this one is a tribute to the old game. I like this so much more that Angel of Darkness. Laura is the best graphically so far. The scenery is fantastic and the game play is excellent. You can literally walk back through the levels which is amazing. The adrenaline dodge is difficult to master but not impossible. I have not run into any glitches and would recommend this.
