Hmmm....I haven't really tried any games on my Mac yet, that's why I kept my PC haha. But I can assume that most Mac games are probably not freely downloadable. Maybe you can download a preview of the game? I'm sure others will come to post who have games for the Mac.

Warcraft III
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Civilization III
Medal of Honor
The Summoner (in osx under classic mode, I dont lag at all)
Ghost Recon
Myth III
WWII Online
Tropico
Diablo II
Giants: Citizens of kabuto
Age of Empires II

Hi nikon,
I understand your predicament, however, we can't post that type of information on these boards since it's in direct violation of the Forum Rules:



No illegal activity - Warez specifically


So while you're free to discuss the games themselves or where you can buy them from, please refrain asking where to download them from for free.

The majority of those games have demo that let you at least play the first couple levels. I would start there. I know that's what I've done a couple times.

Freeverse (http://www.freeverse.com/boardgames.mgi)
free board games and some other demos

MacGameFiles (http://www.macgamefiles.com/)
shareware, demos, updates and more!

Yeah, i would suggest a demo. Mac Gamefiles should have most of them.
Medal of Honor just released a demo.. and Wolfenstein has a beta or a demo runnin around.

"board games" - nothing beats that intensity :D

other good software sites:
Version Tracker (http://www.versiontracker.com)
Mac Update (http://www.macupdate.com)
Aqua Files (http://www.aquafiles.com) (not so good)

FireStorm (http://uwp.edu/~zamzo000/FS.html) ( :D I had to, heh) (actually FS has been takin a break, to much school)

medal of honor demo? im there ;)

FS's break is over... production is up 150% (1.5 * .5 hours per day = 3 hours per day)

yeah im writing the FS_License Obj-C class right now (smells like a FS update to me) i would explain it more, but since i dont want to help out hackers... i wont ;)
