IconIcon Command & Conquer Generals 1.0.4

In a time of modern war, recent military aggressions around the globe have many nations worried. Between the United States, China, and the Global Liberation Army, tensions run high. Their leaders profess no interest in escalating the situation, but words ring hollow when satellite photos tell a different story.
UNITED STATES: America's military leader must use the world's most advanced military to root out an elusive foe. Eradicating the cell-based GLA will take courage, conviction, and the will to see a prolonged campaign through to the end.
GLOBAL LIBERATION ARMY: Facing superior firepower, the GLA embraces bio-terrorism, sabotage, and suicide bombings to further its political agenda. But leading a chaotic group of "freedom" fighters against two global superpowers will take some doing.
CHINA: No longer just a red-communist step-child, China's modern army is well financed, with a strong nationalistic bent. Parading technology like Dragon Tanks and nuclear missiles, China's military goes beyond simple troop numbers.
* Wage real-time war in more ways than ever with a modern and near-future arsenal.
* Command the powerful U.S. forces, the vast Chinese war machine, or the resourceful Global Liberation Army.
* Battle it out in unprecedented detail on full 3D environments.
* All-new units and tactics with maximum destructive capability, including Aurora Strike Bombers, Dragon Tanks, and much more.
* Team up with eight friends or go head to-head in massive online multiplayer battles.

IconIcon Warcraft III 1.26a

It has been nearly fifteen years since the war between the orcs and humans ended. An uneasy peace settled over the land while, for years, the drums of war were silent. Yet the kingdoms of men grew complacent in their victory - and slowly, the defeated orcish clans regrouped under the banner of a new visionary leader.
Now a darker shadow has fallen over the world, threatening to extinguish all life - all hope. The drums of war play upon the winds once again - rising urgently towards the inevitable hour when the skies will rain fire - and the world will tremble before the coming of the Burning Legion.
The Day of Judgment has come...

Icon Worms 3D 1.1

It took 700 million years for Worms on earth to evolve from flat mud-dwelling strips of flesh into the sophisticated, fast-living, fun-loving earth-filled tubes we see today. Fortunately it's only taken Team 17 about 10 years to pull off a similar trick for their Worms. Not bad going in the Darwinian Derby stakes. So Worms 3D on the Mac? Yes indeedy - the third generation of Worms has gone all 3 dimensional on us, but before any flat earthers start getting fidgety, let's make this clear - its retained all the best bits... Team 17 have made a superb job of making flatworms into roundworms (bad puns are part of the deal) - none of this "it's in 3 dimensions and none of them are fun" malarkey.
