Hidden Secrets: The Nightmare
 – 

Disappointing

This game looks and sounds like it was made 15 years ago. The creators could have taken fuller advantage of the graphic artists out thar! Plus, with all the out of work actors in the world, they coulda/shoulda found been people for the voice overs. Finally, when you get stuck - the game ends. There's no option to help with finding the solution.

Tribal Trouble
 – 

Not a bad game at all

A rather simple game with only 3 buildings that can be built. Its a matter of gathering resources, building an army and killing the bad guys. Doesn't take much thought to play but is rather addicting. The price could use to be dropped a bit though.

Game is worth about 10 bucks less.

If you want a fun way to kill some time then this game is good. However if you want a game that requires a bit more thought and planning then other strategy games like Age of Mythology or AoE would be a much better deal.

What a disappointing finish

I was enjoying myself in this game until it just suddenly ended!!! Just like some of the people wrote here, I am pretty upset that I just spent $20 on this game which took me less than two hours to finish.

Not happy.

Challenge the game

I have only managed to get to level 6 and cannot get any further as the piano does not respond even when pressing on the keys in the right order. However, prior to that I thought the game was a good challenge with lots of great puzzles.

Poker Academy Texas Holdem Pro 2.5
 – 

Poker Academy Pro: Great for learning & honing

This is an excellent program for learning and honing your Texas Hold'em poker skills. Sound effects are nice. If you fold you can jimp to end of hand to see how you would have faired before next deal. There is even a feature that allows you to look at non-contested opponent's cards before next deal! Has excellent tutorial on how to play. Also the "statistics" and "advisor" windows can be easily hidden and shown. Good tech support at developer's website. I really have no complaints.

Plinko on Steroids

If you have ever seen the Price is Right game Plinko and wished you could do that yourself, than I really suggest Peggle. Part Plinko and part Brickles/Breakout, Peggle is really quite fun. Any fan of classical music will also find a little musical humor in the game as well...

Waterscape Solitaire: American Falls
 – 

A Scenic Twist on Solitaire

Sure it's a card game, but there is enough going on here to keep you amused and pushing on to higher levels. Basically you are matching pairs to eliminate cards and clear the board for points before moving on to the next level.

Scenery is nice and the game developers give details about each of the American Falls.

Relaxing solitaire game for the whole family to enjoy.

Hearts of Iron 2: Doomsday
 – 

Good game, bad copy, don't buy

This is a really really good game but it's unplayable if you're using Leopard. You can't change the resolution and play in fullscreen, that means you have to wrestle with all icons in the dock keep the mouse arrow inside the small doomsday area.

Too darn bad.

Great game until I upgraded to Leopard

I thoroughly enjoyed this game & played it often until I upgraded to a new computer with Mac OS X 10.5.1. Now it crashes every time I try to play the Journey Mode. I am able to play the Zen Mode, but since I pad for it, I would like to be able to use the entire program! I emailed the company about a month ago, but as yet have heard nothing! Big disappointment because it was a great game!

Don't bother

Too short - too easy - and what a disappointing ending. I WON'T be spending $20 for the sequel.

Diner Dash - Flo On The Go

This is good!

I am stuck on the space ship! There is nothing wrong with this. My computer works with it fine. You should make sure that your computer is compatible to it and you have good graphics.

Deep Blue Sea
 – 

Totally addictive!

This game keeps you coming back for more. The levels are fun, varied and challenging, so you "have to do one more" just to see what happens next.

I am particularly taken with the instant-reaction gameplay. You never have wait for the pieces to move before you can make your next move - very cool! When you've tried a game that is as responsive as this one is, a lot of other games suddenly seem irritatingly slow-to-react.

The soundtrack/music is pleasant, almost calming, and creates a good underwater feeling. The sound effects also stay with the underwater theme. At no time are the sounds or soundtrack irritating - which is a huge bonus because of the totally addictive nature of this game (I found myself playing for a lot longer than I expected)

Highly recommended!

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
 – 

I like it but...

I was very eager to get this game because it advertised a multiplayer mode. But when I beat it, the multiplayer was still not acceseble. On the main menu it's there, but when you click on it, nothing happens. Other than that, the levels were very fun, and just the right difficulty. I really enjoyed it. I would enjoy it even more if I could play multiplayer with my brother.

Interpol: The Trail of Dr. Chaos
 – 

bad translations, bad descriptions

I speak Japanese. Many translations are completely wrong; Timetable board/Schedule board is not Japanese Calendar, some of "geisha" are not geisha, picture of bell is not a bell....
There are many mistakes in this game. You have more than 2 choices for the same item to click off but only one is the right one to click off; there are two peacocks but only one is the right one to click off. There are two cymbals... there are two mouthless masks. I can go no and on and on.

There are so many wrong descriptions; Nutcracker?? no, those are tile snips.

They need a good QC before release this game.

Hilarious Graphics

The claymation graphics are a hoot. This game is a blast to play. Fun and challenging. Lots of powerups and things to blow up. I think there is a Platypus II but only for the PC (darn it). Download the free demo. Maybe it's not your cup of tea but I love it.

Age of Empires II
 – 

An Amazing Real Time Strategy Game

I'm an owner of Age of Empires II and I love it. It is easily the most played strategy game in my collection and I own other popular strategy games such as Age of Empires III, Rise of Nations, and Age of Mythology. Age of Empires II keeps the game simple but challenging. The units attack and armor are very easy to understand (unlike newer RTS games where everything has attack bonuses vs everything else so you never know how much attack the unit really has unless you have a calculator with you). The game varies in difficulty from easiest to hardest and I have yet to master the hardest level against multiple players (I have owned and played the game for many years). If you want to play multiplayer online there is never a lack of servers ready for you to play. The graphics are mediocre simply because this is an old game compared to pretty much every other popular games these days. Even though it is an old game IT RUNS GREAT ON INTEL MACS, I used to play Age of Empires II on my G5 Tower, but since then have moved on to play it on my intel iMac, my MacbookPro, and my friend's Macbook.

Conclusion:
Worth Every Penny many times over, I have not played any other game longer then I have played this game. It is simply brilliant, from variety of units, to economy, to maps, to multiplayer and campaigns.
