I remember trying it a while back and it was pretty unplayable. By lowering the resolution, texture quality etc. I managed to get it running semi-smoothly, but as soon as I got into a bit of action, the framerate just bottomed out again.

Sorry!

I have a refurbished 2.16 iMac, w/ 3MB and the updagraded video card, NVidea (or something like that). I just got the mac only version of CoD4 and it plays fine. I have some settings on but not all, and the screen resolution at 800x600 (one above the lowest). I get an fps of around mid 30's to 50's. It plays fine, I've upped the resolution by one slider increment and it still plays pretty good.

That being said, it's well worth it, it still looks great in my opinion (then again I've been playing MoH:AA for the past 6 years).

I'll post my settings when I get home.

My bad, I just realized that you said you had a Macbook 2.16, I have an iMac 2.16.
