There are not many good space combat sim MMO's available these days. It is even more rare to find one that will run on a Mac.

Vendetta Online is a space themed combat sim. It begins with very helpful tutorials that allow the player to pick up a few points. Each space station has an interface that contains unique missions. One can choose to undertake various missions involving mining or trade or combat or delivery... With the completion of certain missions new ships and weapons become available. To get from one galaxy to another one makes use of worm holes. The player is encouraged and rewarded for exploring the universe.

A few of the things I find very attractive about Vendetta Online: the missions are diverse enough to keep a player busy and engaged. The learning curve is sufficiently gradual. It also allows for solitary as well as team player engagement. I am more interested in grinding alone and am turned off when forced to team up with others I don't know. So far I have not been pushed in that direction, which is a plus.

There are few negatives to this game, and as far as I can see they are minor. Graphically, the game is not bad. But it is also nothing to write home about, either. Leveling up to access better weapons does seem a bit slow. The music can be monotonous after a while; but that is easily remedied by hitting the mute button. Vendetta Online requires a $9.00/month subscription fee. One can debate the relative pros and cons of monthly fees until the end of time.

If you are a die hard space explorer who enjoyed playing games like Freelancer you may want to give Vendetta Online a shot. Each new player gets the first 30 days free.

AWESOME maintenance tool. Allows you to keep an eye on everything PLUS the kitchen sink... I love its many great features as well as the interface that gives you access to all of the tasks it allows you to do. Keeps my Mac up and running and helps me to keep the garbage down to a minimum, too. My absolute favorite is its easy access to force quit. There are times when one of my apps hangs... Or my internet browser is just too slow. It can take forever to force quit using the keyboard command. Force quitting from the dock isn't always that successful, either! When you force quit through MainMenu the app quits instantly. System cleanup is painless as it can shut down after it does its thing if you set it up that way. Very easy even for a novice.

Excellent download manager all around. I have used SD since the earliest days. I keep using it bc of its stability and reliability. Even though I am usually one of the first to upgrade to a new Mac OS, I have never seemed to have any real issues with this application. Tech support is excellent. On the very rare occasion I have needed to ask a question I never end up waiting very long to hear back from them. If you want a download manager that is reliable and hassle free, SD is the one to choose.
