You mean with boot camp? I tried to play CoD2 online multiplayer through boot camp and it sucked. It was laggy as fecal matter.

I've played NFS Most Wanted (finished the game) and also Half Life 2 (finished as well) and now on HL2-Episode 1. Quality is excellent. I'm not into CS anymore.

I want a game to play. I love playing CS on my friends PC but I wasn't sure how it would play on a MBP. What about COD2 and UT2K4 for MAC? How are those online?

It will be absolutely unreal if it runs on the MBP as well.

My roommate plays that game all day on his MacBook. I don't get it. So can anyone answer my question or does nobody play it?

I downloaded the COD demo and it sucked. The graphics were terrible. How do they look for you?

Why don't you just load bootcamp onto your laptop and try it out for yourself? And as Strider said, he can run HL2 and Episode 1 okay, CS is built on the same engine, so it should run pretty much the same.
