    "This is an amazing online game and it can challenges the mind in terms of analyzing how to create and run a full fledged city. This game has very good graphics and it simulations that help the user to get started and create the perfect city with all the amenities and architectural marvels."

    "I got into turn-based gaming thanks to my preteen nephew. Shogun 2 was one of the first ones he showed me, and I haven't bothered to play any other ones. I like that it's easy to use when you're new. But it's also interesting enough to keep my nephew's attention, too, and he plays everything. A gaming computer isn't necessary to play the game -- I use a MacBook."

    "Tropico 5 was a single player simulation game, but the bars have been raised with the new multiplayer functions. Now you and your friends can battle it out or work together to complete missions. This new capability will allow a broader spectrum of people to come play and add more people to the network."

    "This game is great, it focuses on not only a historical attack on Rome but the everyday life and living of the time period. It features famine, war, survival, and tactics that truly makes one think about the "how am I going to survive this?!" kind of approach. It makes the player feel truly immersed in the game giving both time and devotion to it is rewarding and challenging. For players looking for a survivalist theme that has a historical approach this is the game for you. For those looking for strategy and a rewarding player experience, again, this game is for you. Those looking to breeze through an not give attention to detail, this isn't a game for you. It's for the intellectual and hardcore gamer who loves to think about how they are going to win."

    "Finding strategy games for Mac can be frustrating. There is just not that much to choose from. I just got Age of Wonders III on my mac book pro and it is amazing. I love the graphics and the game play mechanics are perfect. I love the battles. I play this a lot."

    "Conquest of Elysium 3 is no where near the best strategy games for Mac. The controls are clunky and the game is riddled with bugs. The worst part is that it cost $10!"

    "Battle Worlds: Kronos is a strategy game that can be played on Mac. I'm not really into strategy games, but decided to give this a try. I didn't really enjoy it because the interface/maps isn't set up correctly. I wish I could return this game because it really failed."

    "I was looking for a good strategy game for the Mac. I found out about Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville. This game really is not what I was looking for. I like the concept of rebuilding a ruined city in a post-apocalyptic world, but the gameplay is just so boring. The graphics aren't that great, either. I don't know why my friends like this game or why they recommended it. It also doesn't work properly on my computer. It glitches out or crashes half the time. I really hate it. Don't play this game; it's not worth the trouble."

    "I've had a hard time finding games I like that run on my MacBook. I'm new to Macs and all my old favorites are for Windows only, which I hate. Bounty Train is just the kind of game I love, runs on Mac and I was able to get it on sale here on Steam! I'm super grateful for this awesome game."

    "There are a lot of strategy games out there at the moment. My friend told me about Train Valley so I decided to give it a try. After playing it for hours I can say that as far as Mac strategy games goes this is one of the best."

    "There's something inherently awesome about having a birds eye view over a battlefield and being able to control armies. E:TW is a great entry in the top down strategy game category. Its not anything ground breaking, but its a lot of fun."

    "I play all sorts of games but was blown away when I discovered Homeworld Remastered Collection on Steam. This is one of the best fantasy strategy games that I have ever had the opportunity to play on my Mac. After I got used to building and battling 100 different ships, I started playing the multiplayer games which just blew me away! Do not make the mistake I did and wait to download this game. GET IT NOW!!!"

    "This is a very basic, yet invigorating strategy game. I love the graphics. I also love how they have captured the old world arcade feel as well. Over all, very enjoyable game!"

    "I usually enjoy Mac strategy games but this one was just not up to snuff. The pacing is too fast and the universe is too confusing to navigate. Some of the battles are decent enough but it really grew tiresome quite quickly. I would avoid this game and look for something better."

    "This game is fun and exciting if you want to play a game with warships, it takes place on an ocean, and there are ships from WW I and WW II. There are different types of ships which have different behaviors, battleships are strong, carriers have aircraft, destroyers have torpedoes, and cruisers have a fast firing rate. You get to choose a flag from naval powers such as USA, and Japan. Weather can change in battle, and cause an influence on battle. I have a fun time playing with friends, games are replayable, there is some repetitiveness, but due to it being multiplayer, it is really fun and exciting."

    "Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI is a strategy game in which players build and expand their empire in an effort to take over the world. The main issue I have with the game is the time commitment required to really get into it."

    "Game is an absolute bore! I don't want to play a game that's basically a history book, I want to be entertained. Biggest issue of mine is that this game barely even worked for Mac! Tons of functionality issues."

    "I love to play strategy games, especially on my Mac computer. I decided to try Warbands: Bushido and I love it. It's a tactical and turn-based game that is very similar to tabletop games. If you like table-top war games, you'll really love this game, as I do. The graphics are excellent and very detailed and the music is great. Definitely check it out if you love these types of games. You'll have fun for hours!"
