Warbirds: Dogfights

wish I had looked at the reviews

Live and learn this game is terrible, can't edit seem to edit the controls, very awkward, total waste of 30 bucks, I for one will be reading reviews next time, and preferably trying it out before buying.

Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst
 – 

Great game. Well worth the money.

This is a really fun puzzle game. Took a lot longer than the typical HO game - actually finding the items was only a small portion of the game - so I'd say at $10 it's great value. The real fun comes in solving the riddles. A little bit of an odd storyline, but interesting nonetheless. There are some funny bits in there to lighten the mood if you pay attention. Anyway, took me a number of sittings to solve it and it's by far my favourite Mystery Case File game to date. Looking forward to the next one!

Too Challenging

This game started out fun but at some point became too difficult. It ended up being more stressful than fun.

The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom Gold Edition
 – 

Excellent Game; poor implementation

First of all the game itself is good, really good. The AI and some economic behavior needs some tweaking, but overall it is one of the best games I've ever seen.

Unfortunately there are some points leading to the horrible rating:
- the game is quite demanding for Video-RAM. Even on an iMac 27" QuadCore i7 with 512MB VRAM you won't be able to set detail levels to more than medium quality in order to keep the game running smoothly.

- the copy protection requires a constant internet connection while playing the game. For most players having a broadband connection not a problem anymore. But what's annoying is that the game servers are often not reachable, meaning the game won't allow you to play. Having the game for about three weeks the servers were offline for almost FOUR days of playing hours.

- a known problem for the Mac version is a bug that sometimes freezes the game during video-sequences after a game ends or the storyline of the campaign mode. And even three months after the game was released still no bugfix available.

I liked it!

This game has beautiful graphics. The game reminds me about the game "Mission Kelloggs". A game with a good game-concept: destroy evil and clean the nature from garbage.

Something I miss is that the game could have been a little bit more challenging, but for small kids I think it is perfect.

I also think it is a cons that you cannot choose game resolution in the game - only standard or fullscreen in aspect ratio 4:3.

Overall a good and funny game:-)

Wonderful!

I finally picked up this game after sometime wanting to buy it. Loved the demo. Some people might find it over priced, I don't. Game is amazing in its own way. The music, art, atmosphere, and story just make it a pleasure to play. And the puzzles can be very challenging at times. I think this is a very recommended buy. Not much out there like this.

Warbirds: Dogfights
 – 

Might be fun but it is too much trouble

I would like to explore this game more but it is not worth the hassle of getting it to run.

In order to fly with a joystick, I have to unplug all USB devices except my joystick and then reboot the computer. After rebooting, the joystick has to be calibrated in a tedious process that includes having part of the calibration window obscured. That is a lot of unnecessary work just to play a game, in my opinion. No other software I have ever used has required such a thing!

After going through all that there is a slightly tedious and only partly useful tutorial that has a bug near the end. The tutorial is only useful because it tells you a couple of things not explained in the help file. I wonder what I might have learned if I could follow it past the bug at the two thirds mark?

Even while actually flying, the joystick configuration has gotten corrupted so that the plane loses throttle and then just spins out of control.

The totalsims forums have been little help.

Save your money for something fun - I wish I had and I wish I could get a refund.

Crashes

Whne your on a higher level this game crasches all the time besides that there is nothing new or different about this game besides that your growing plants. It's a good "passing the time" game.

Fun at first.

I love the graphics and fun at first but after your done and switch characters, I thought at least the story will change but no. Still the same murder to solve and same town. Which there was a lot more to it.

Jewel Quest 4

Thank you for an absolutely brilliant game. This kept me occupied for ages - as you go up the family tree the stages are Easy, Medium, Hard and Very Hard. The story line is interesting as well. I think there are 30 levels to do but don't think you are going to match each game only once - no way, thats what keeps you going.

Again well done - more games like this PLEASE.

Doesn't support my monitor...

I tried this demo, but for some reason it doesn't like my monitor aspect ratio (1920x1080). I would love to play it!

Ouba: The Great Journey
 – 

Game aborts too regularly

Starting with level 5 this game aborts on index range errors and on occasion just hangs up requiring a force quit. Do not buy this game. Even if it did not abort, the timing of the game's play at level 5 and up is so quick it can "win" the stage before you even click anything. - once in less than 10 seconds.

Serious Issues with Snow Leopard on new iMac 27" 2009s

Still waiting to play the game, months after buying it. Runesoft claimed they were waiting for 10.6.3 to put out a patch to correct the unplayable game. Nothing yet. And no response from the makers on repeated emails sent.

Basically the game starts, allows set up to be completed, allows you to play first level of every campaign then when you finish it simply won't save the game. Upshot is that you can not go beyond the training level on any campaign. Also it simply does not play in full screen. All you get is a balck screen with the sound running in the background.

Totally dissatisfied. If they ever put the patch out to correct this I shall write a real review. For now though it is 39.95 too expensive.

Hidden Secrets: The Nightmare

It would have been a far more enjoyable game were it not for all of the minigames- many were completely frustrating the additional 'help' added nothing to solving the problem. Many of the scenes were too dark to identify the objects. A real waste of money !!!

Nice, non-violent game with problems

Addictive gameplay. Fairly straightforward mechanics. Non-violent. Unfortunately crashes to desktop at a certain point several levels in.
