what should I use Crossover, VMware, Parallels, or Bootcamp. I really like bootcamp but its really expensive for Xp or Vista, Xp is still 199.99. So what do you think.

Personally.... if it were me, I would learn to live without the game.
I couldn't justify installing Windows in any fashion for one paltry video game.

Also, idk about crossover, but i know u still need windows for parallels and VMWare...only bootcamp has 3D support as far as i kno, that is, if the game your looking to play requires 3D...

Do what I did find yourself a copy of Windows XP OEM Version, It about 80 bucks and mine came with 32 and 64 bit version. That way you can run Xp nativey, something that emulators can't do.
