This game is NOT a port. Its has NOT been re-written for OS X. It's performance as a result is unacceptable, and EA's attitude toward Mac users regarding support and customer service is equally unacceptable. Buy the PC version. Once you do, you will experience the game in all it's glory. And it is an amazing game. Just not on OS X.

Please keep in mind, I'm NOT attempting to start up the lame old "PC vs Mac" war in *any* way, I own 3 Macs. But I also own 2 PCs. I prefer OS X for every computing task other than gaming.

I'm also not insinuating Macs are not suitable for gaming. They are. It's entirely possible to create amazing games on Mac. Look at any of Blizzard's games for proof of that. Granted, you won't be playing state of the art shooters with frame rates of 90 on anything less than a Mac Pro, but the other 98% of the Mac gaming market could and should be served.

But this game is the perfect example of how *not* to do it.

Again, this game is NOT a port. It's using emulator technology to trick your Mac into thinking it's a PC for the duration of the game. Emulation is VERY processor and RAM intensive. As a result, you have sluggishness, horrible frame rates, and a few other, more minor issues.

EA's customer service and support for this game is non-existent. You can't install the newest patch for the game. You can't install the expansion for the game. You can't even download the game using the EALink/EA Store service. The website for the game does not even acknowledge the existence of the Mac version. All you have is one forum with users spending way too much time attempting to fix the problems EA's programmers should have done.

I've never been more disappointed with a mac version of a game. Obviously very little attention was payed to installation, updates, video card support and multiplayer. 5 co-workers all bought the game and all of us have had trouble crashing, connecting or even playing the game. I've had to reinstall twice now in the last 2 weeks to solve inexplicable stalling/crashing. Also only plays at 1024x768 or 800x600 (unless you want more crashing)

The game itself rocks. Tons of fun (once you can get the blasted thing to run). We had better luck running it on older intel macbooks than on newer, faster intel towers. You'll do better buying the Windows version and running it through Boot Camp or Parallels.

Come on, EA. How many hundreds of hardware/software configurations do you have to test for on the Windows platform? and on a mac there are maybe 5? Oh.. and the mac version is more expensive to boot. I think I'll stick with Aspyr and id for my games from now on. Ridiculous.

I love this game, but playing it on a Mac is nothing but frustration. You'll pay twice as much for the game up front. Then you'll experience the wonderfully chaotic cider emulation. No matter how fast your Mac, you'll get laggy performance and lots of crashes.

Assuming you keep playing, you'll be disappointed to find EA never bothered to port the Northern Strike booster pack, so your choices of servers is limited (and this is a server-only game. No real single-player mode). Even better, when EA releases an incremental patch (to introduce new maps, new weapons and fix bugs), Mac owners get the patch about a month later than everyone else. I am currently waiting for the 1.50 patch. In the meantime, every server in the known world has upgraded to 1.50. In other words, I am unable to play the game. Furthermore, EA refuses to comment on when they'll get around to patching the Mac version.

Avoid this game. Buy the PC version if you must, but I suggest avoiding EA altogether. They have proven themselves to be unabashedly anti-consumer and happy to rest on their pile of Madden cash.

First off, I have never played BF2 and I read of many of those who have say that this is a glorified mod BF2.

I am running BF 2142 on a MacPro tower 2X4 core OSX Leopard 6GB RAM 750GB HD stock gfx card. And have NO performance issue.

These other reviewers that are whining about performance, are not running fast enough machines. This game demands fast hardware, if you play on anything below the minimum requirements, it will not run properly.

Having said that, the game itself occasionally crashes, but rarely. My biggest problems came from a cheap router I had, which caused me to constantly lose my connection. I replaced my router with a D-Link game router, and I have no more problems.

I have played BF1942, BF Vietnam and Halo, Quake(1-4) and Unreal Tournament.

What EA has always done a superb job with is game play and balance. Even my previous favorite, Halo, had some real imbalance regarding the pistol, no one should be able to snipe someone from 50 + yards with a freaking pistol! But the weapons are so well balanced in BF2142 that there is no real consensus on which weapons are truly better, I think this is because it depends on what you get used to/prefer. That is a good sign that they did a great job balancing the weapons.

What really makes this game superb in my opinion, is that they have really gone to great lengths to reward teamwork! You can be a "Lone wolf" if you want, but you will gain points and rank at 25% of what well performing squads can gain. The hierarchy is that orders come down from a Commander (You get killer points for commanding!) If the Commander gives orders, he gest points, if the Squad Leaders follow those orders he gets more points, if those orders result in success everyone gets even more points!!
