I do have the first Baldur's Gate game that I bought on eBay a while ago. I tried the demo but wasn't sure what I needed to do, being completely new to all games at the time. I have the manual, which should help me when I finally get brave enough to attempt it. I'll have to check some of my game sit...

That's an excellent review, BJ. It sounds like it might have the best of both worlds. Do you think it's the best one for a novice RPGer to play?

Mr. Bill, Other foods besides chocolate? Don't be silly! Virtual PC can be a royal pain for Macs, and it is very slow. I'd rather keep the two systems separate and may get a Windows computer eventually. The trouble with that is there are several older PC games I want to try and some newer ones, so t...

There are several of my favorites in those lists, Mr. Bill, and some that I've played in the past year or so.

I did think it was a bit unfair to have you solve a slider, a maze, and the casket puzzle right in a row. :lol:

:tu Excellent review, FGM! I played this game for the first time last year and really enjoyed it. The acting was so bad it was funny, like an old melodrama, and I loved all the creepy cursors - the skeletal hand, throbbing brain, eyeballs, and all the rest. I, too, had trouble with the piano puzzle....

So far the only tiny glitch I found on my Mac was that I couldn't see the butterflies that Anya was supposed to be feeding in Serenia. Otherwise, all has gone very smoothly, and I'm loving it. After the chair puzzle in Spire, I felt ready for anything. However, I am now trying to get past the camodi...

It is a beautiful game, and the first I've played on DVD. The quality is excellent, and the story has captured me. I can't wait to get back to it.

Sorry, FGM, I thought I had included that. It's the ALT key. :)

That's an excellent review, BJ! I haven't played the Law and Order games yet, although at least the first one has been ported to the Mac. I hope they do the same with this one.

BTW, I was wondering why your fur was green. Now I know it's because of your Irish roots. :lol:

When I first encountered the Moon Tone cabinet, I immediately thought of having to match tones like the spaceship in Myst or play a song similar to the piano puzzle in The 7th Guest or the organ puzzle in Connections . It's not that I don't like those types of puzzles, but I was glad to find that it...

BTW, Jim, although I don't agree with much of your review, I neglected to say that I thought it was well written. :) I understand what you didn't like, but which of the puzzles did you like? To me the puzzles concerning the guitar sections were some of the best I've ever had the pleasure of figuring...

Since I own both the Mac OS 9 and X versions of the game, paid for the shipping from Australia for the first one, and have bought two copies for friends, it's obvious that I think the game is worth the price. I will gladly pay my hard-earned dollars to support any developers who build games for the ...

I read your review of Alida , Jim, and I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the game. As I have stated before, it is an all-time favorite of mine, and I was surprised at your negativity. Please bear in mind that the entire game was created by one man, indie developer Cos Russo. He built the ent...
