Grid Autosport Mac Review

Race Driver: Grid was the perfect racing game, and even now it’s still one of the best. It’s a game that toes the line between simulation and arcade perfectly. Both arcade and simulation racing fans love to play it. Grid 2, however, didn’t go down so well. Grid 2 was essentially an arcade game with a great selection of cars. This didn’t go down too well with a lot of fans, and Codemasters felt the heat. Net result? Grid Autosport was born. While Grid 2 caters to the arcade racing fans, Grid Autosport is for the simulation nuts.  ...

Dirt 3 Mac Review

If there’s one universal truth we can all agree on, it is that Codemasters knows how to make good racing games. They are the ones behind games such as F1 2013 or Grid 2. DiRT 3 is another example in a long line of great games. Released back in 2011, the game was very well received on consoles and Windows-PC, scoring an 86 Metascore. Ported to the Mac four years later by Feral Interactive, the game certainly feels like it came “too late to the party“, but is still some of the most fun you can have racing on a Mac. Get...

Total War: Shogun 2 Mac Review

Age of Empires is a great game, but if you’re more of a general rather than an economist, it doesn’t quite do the trick. But worry not, for Total War: Shogun 2 is exactly what you were looking for. Shogun 2 sticks to the Total War script, delivering real time combat with turn based tactics. As most of the Total War games available for the Mac, Feral Interactive ported Total War: Shogun 2 and released it on July 31, 2014. The game was originally developed by The Creative Assembly and published by Sega on March 15, 2011. Download on...

Grid 2 Mac Review

It’s been quite a while since Race Driver: Grid was released,  not so long ago for Mac gamers, but still. As timeless as that game was, it’s been long overdue for an overhaul. The multiplayer servers have since long been shut down. The cars are from another generation, relatively speaking, and the racetracks have been renovated since. Obviously, the biggest challenge for Codemasters was to make a sequel to what was already a superb, well-executed game. It’s hard to top something which is already so very good. Grid 2 isn’t a radical overhaul of the game. Codemasters has simply improved...
