Love the game… but may die a 32 bit death

Absoluttely love this game, but our time is limited…. unless a 64 bit versions is released sometime soon, this won’t work in future MacOS versions.

Great choice for a new game

This game is fantastic! I have owned it now for a couple years and still play it frequently. Sort of like a “High-tech” steam-punk theme. Amazing artwork, intriguing plot, and game play is smooth and challenging. Dont be afraid to spend some of your entertainment budget money here, because you will be pleased. I have never had issues with this game, so I can’t comment on customer support, but that in itself is an outstanding comment. Have fun! :)

Just Different

This game is amazing. I just want to thow that out there. The gameplay in extremely innovative, the story isn’t the most wonderful thing in the world, but I did find the plot very engaging and sometimes even emotional, and best of all, you can play in again and again before it starts getting old. Love it. Love it love it love it. Only bad thing: A bit short for the price. That’s it.
