Apple’s Web site is chock full of new game content this week. A retrospective of what happened in games at this month’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco is one top feature. MacSoft’s new Civilization III is also highlighted, as is the phenomenon of action games on the Mac, too.

Civilization III: Build an Empire in Mac OS X, Brad Cook examines the new turn-based strategy game title published by MacSoft. It’s the latest game created by the legendary Sid Meier. Like its predecessors, Civ III puts you in the role of the leader of a civilization; you make the decisions that affect that civilization’s ability to thrive and overcome cultural and philosophical stagnation, technological troubles and invading foreign foes as well. (It runs on Mac OS 9, too, just in case you’re worried.)
Macworld San Francisco 2002 Gaming Madness, the Apple games crew takes a look at what went on at the Expo earlier this month — from new Mac OS X-compatible releases to exciting new announcements from both established Mac game publishers and some new faces, too. Tons of links to related information are also included.
Long time Mac game maven Chris McVeigh takes a look at action games on the Mac in a new article simply entitled
Action Games. Whether it’s first person shooters like the upcoming Return to Castle Wolfenstein or third person titles like American McGee’s Alice, there’s a little something for everyone. McVeigh doesn’t neglect action games like WingNuts or Centipede, either.
