    Your best & fastest option with your MacBook is to set it up as a dual-boot computer using "bootcamp". You will also need a legal copy of Windows to complete the installation.

    If you don't know what I'm talking about...Google "bootcamp".

    Here's a link to get you started:

    But bear in mind...Mac's are not known as the best gaming computers...and if you have an older MacBook...high demand games may still not run super smoothly.

    Really depends on your MBP's specs. Please post those.
    As Nick mentioned, if you bootcamp into Windows you will be able to use your Mac's full processing power and have a better chance at playing games without problems.

    Side note: you really should use a more descriptive thread title to illicit more help. Most people will skip right past your thread if it doesn't get their attention.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

    It's kind of the only option if insist on gaming on a Mac. Especially ones that are Windows only. >_>
