Why won't it work?

Today, I downloaded Wolfenstein: Enemy territory for the mac. The opening movie, the menu, and all the other stuff work PERFECTLY FINE. It's until I get into a game that it freezes.

My system specs:

450 MHz PowerPC G4 processor
My video card has 32 MB I believe

Does anyone know how to fix this? Do I just need a better video/graphics card to actually start playing? Help!

EDIT: The quit problem is fixed. But I still need help on the problem above.

This is the system recommended requirements, you fall short.

For Mac, there isn't an official MSR but the one for Mac RTCW suggests the following, but also note the Mac port author has reportedly suggested OSX 10.3 seems to be recommended. As is the norm for game's MSR, the required video card and especially the CPU probably really are the minimum, and not necessarily what's required for a good gaming experience.
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later
CPU Processor: PowerPC G3 or later
CPU Speed: 500MHz or faster
Memory: 256 MB or higher
Hard Disk Space: 600MB free disk space
Video Card (ATI): Radeon 7500 or better
Video Card (NVidia): GeForce2 MX or better
Video Memory (VRam): 32 MB or higher
Media Required: CD Drive
QUOTE Thanks
