    Quick answer..... No

    Parallels doesn't have the DirectX capabilities required. Bootcamp is the way to go.

    oh well that sucks. I was hoping parallels to have got better from a year back when they were in the same boat. I hate rebooting the system just for the sake of GTA. I guess I will save my quarters until i can buy a console and the console version of GTA SA.
