Victor Vran Mac Review

Victor Vran is the latest game from studio Haemimont Games, the studio known for the Tropico series. The game is a refreshing take on the RPG genre, and although it doesn’t revolutionize it, it brings new ideas to the table. At first glance, Victor Vran may look like another Diablo clone, but it isn’t. This game will satisfy you with its awesome gameplay mechanics and great graphics. And I’m happy to confirm that Mac version was handled with care. Only one question remains: Can your Mac handle it? Read on. You can download it on GOG.com.   Enter Victor Vran...

Cities: Skylines Mac Review

When you think city-building games, what’s the first game that comes to mind? I bet it’s SimCity, which can be expected as it dominated the genre for almost two decades. But things have changed lately. The latest SimCity, released for Mac in 2013, promised to create the most sophisticated and entertaining city-building game ever. But SimCity’s launch was a catastrophe, and the game never fully recovered from that. Luckily, developer Paradox Interactive was paying attention. SimCity’s awful fumble gave them the confidence to try the unthinkable: challenge SimCity’s 20-year reign. On March 2015, Paradox Interactive released Cities: Skylines for Windows, Mac, and Linux. And...

The east meets the west in Total War: Shogun 2’s expansion Fall of the Samurai.

That allowed The Creative Assembly to create a much deeper and richer Total War experience while focusing on the conflict between the Shogunate and the Imperial throne taking place in the 19th Century. Total War: Shogun 2 is one of the finest Strategy games on Macand The Fall of the Samurai expansion promises to improve it even more. But does it deliver? Read on.

Elder Scrolls Online Mac Review

Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) had a rough first year after its initial release in April 2014. With highly rated predecessors, such as Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, the expectations for the sixth installment of the Elder Scrolls series were sky-high. So why did this game, which had so much potential, become a disaster? It was mainly due to its pricing system. First, you had to buy the game for $59.95, then you also had to pay a monthly subscription fee in order to play it. For obvious reasons, this is not a very popular business model. Worst yet,...

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is the ninth installment of the Metal Gear series (and the first one ever on Mac) and is set four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Patriots. But hey, don’t be discouraged if you have never played a MG game before.
