Escape The Museum
 – 

Waste of time and money

This is the typical find the hidden item, solve the puzzle game. It might have been kind of fun if you could see what you are looking for! The graphics are low resolution and so pathetic that you can't see what you are supposed to find. This isn't 1990! For $20 the developers can do better than this!

Halo Universal Binary
 – 

Greatly improved multiplayer

I read some of the reviews for this, and wasn't sure it would help my Halo problems. I recently purchased Halo from Ebay. It had some glitches so I proceeded to add the most recent updates I could find (v. 1.5.2, I believe is the latest), but I was still experiencing problematic lag, and more significantly, the game would crash completely at random. This was especially bad when I was hosting online games which I do regularly. I decided to give the Universal Binary a shot. It has worked wonders for reducing lag and I have not had a crash since.

Keep in mind that I play online multiplayer almost exclusively, but given the quality of the upgrade, I see no reason why the UB wouldn't help all aspects of the game. I've got a late '06 model mac mini, with Tiger, 1.83 Ghz Intel Duo Core, 512MB RAM.

UB seems to me like an excellent upgrade!

Escape The Museum
 – 

GREAT GAME!

I am about 1/2 way through the game and I love it. It has the hideandseek features, some are quite hard but you must also collect clues and escape from each room. You get rated on time and percentage of correct finds. Your score drops signifcantly when you click on the wrong object or use hints the first time and a little less every time after. So time is not as much of an issue as in most games of this type. Story is a wee bit corny but aren't they all. It is probably one of the bet HIDE/SEEK games I have played due to having to escape each room. Highly recommended if you like this type of game. ps.IIf you get stuck thare is always Gamezebo.com for walkthrough.

Peggle Deluxe
 – 

Addictive!

I have become addicted to this game! It's great for any age, including older gamers like me. It isn't frantic and you don't need super sharp skills, but boy, is it entertaining. Some of the graphics are a bit cartoonish, but the gameplay graphics are great, especially the slow motion when you get that last hit! I highly recommend this game to everyone who likes a bit of arcade action without all the frenzy that only adds stress after a long day at work. Well worth the price!!!

Fish Tycoon
 – 

Love it!

I'm not a seasoned sim gamer, so this is great for people like me. I'm actually addicted to it, as I'm a fish lover at heart. I keep it up when I'm busy and just check it now and then to see what I've produced or sold. I agree that it's a bit frustrating that you can't stock both fungus and ick meds at the same time, but they aren't very expensive once you really get going. (a free upgrade or patch would be nice!) This game is great for all ages. Not everyone wants to play online, or get into really complicated sims, so I highly recommend this game.

I won't play it for free

One repetitious action. That's it. That the entire game. Its clear that Mystery Studios only put 10-15 minutes into the entire production of this games.

Crusader Kings
 – 

Most unstable software I've ever seen

Sorry but I just am not going to waste time discussing a poor excuse for software development. I am also convinced that the AI in this game is irrational at best. How is it that computer players are not effected by negative piety and money but once the player dips that way he's screwed.

A little too easy

A little to easy once you've played it through, second time is pretty boring doesn't change much.

Awesome

I am an "older" gamer and I do love the puzzles. I particularly like the rooms where you have to figure the connection to each other. I hate to see it end, hopefully you will have more of such games. Do enjoy it!!!

Hidden Secrets: The Nightmare
 – 

Super Puzzle

I was totally engaged and had a hard time quitting-as a result I finished the game in one sitting. The only negative I have is it is much too short. Please more of these!! Really enjoyed it. Worth the money.

This game is one of my favorites. It was almost a little to easy for me to beat...up until the bonus pack!

Rhem 3
 – 

Surprisingly challenging.

This is an excellent game! I have played other Rhem games and it wasn't until this version that I really got into it. This game is a real challenge in my opinion, but not so much so as to make you pull your hair out. It is really fun exploring this rather strange world and then discovering that you can manipulate that world if you are clever enough. I give it top marks for overall and game play, but don't trust my ratings for graphics and sound. I never listen to any music in any of these games, but this one doesn't seem to have any - and what it did have in terms of sounds was precious little. As far as graphics, this game has the usual Mac malady of having two resolutions - full screen and therefore somewhat grainy, or too small. That's it.

Overall - great fun.

Fun, but jerky graphics and too short

The game is about 2 hours long, and if you've got any sort of arcade game skill you'll beat it first time. The graphics stutter, even on a macbook pro, which is massively more than the suggested system. Overall I'd say this game was worth $10, unfortunately it costs 20.

Eschalon: Book I
 – 

Great "old school" game.

For those of you who played Fall Out and enjoy a turn-based strategy game then this is worth the $. Good story and lots of directions to take so you never get stuck for too long.

Game freezes about halfway thru, have to unplug computer
to get out of game. I've downloaded 3 times and it does it every time. Please fix it, I think I'd like the game if I could just play it!!

Azkend
 – 

Time Killer

Azkend is an uncomplicated but fun game to play. The game play is not all that challenging but I still found it enjoyable. The music with the game is quite lovely and not annoying as some games I have played. I am not sure it is worth the $20 price tag but I am glad I have it on my computer to play when I am bored. The levels are pretty similar and the only challenge is that you get less time as the game goes on to complete each level. The power-ups are average in the game; some are effective in the game some not so much. The storyline of the game could be much more interesting as the ending leaves you 2 choices how to end the game, but after playing twice you realize it ends the same way regardless of what you choose.
Overall, I liked the game though it is not challenging but sometimes you just want something to play and not compete against.

Slow Slow Slow

not interesting enough upgrades, poor music & graphics. Also, a glitch in the game causes it to slow down constantly.
