It's tricky writing (and reading) reviews for Mac games. If you want to know if the game's worth playing, there are multitudes of reviews for all the platforms on which it's featured. So far, and I've put maybe 4 hours into the game, it's a solid port. If you want to know if COD 4 is worth playing, there's plenty of evidence out there that yes, yes it is.

If you want to know if you can run the thing, let me just say that if you have one of the new round of Macs, it will run easily and beautifully. I've got the 2.4 ghz model, but according to benchmarks, there's not a huge difference between it and the 2.0 as far as frame rate goes. The install itself is so simple I almost thought they were putting me on. They were not, and I just dragged the folder from the CD onto my hard drive. Twenty minutes or so later I was playing the best-looking game I've ever seen.

Multiplayer works awesome, and the fact that you can play against PC nerds is kind of mind-boggling to me. There are always games. And people are very, very good.

I've been using a Mac for 6 years now, this is my second laptop, and the idea that I can buy a modern game that a lot of folks are still playing and run it so well on such a thin and lovely machine makes me a little giddy inside.

After reading mixed reviews, i'm glad i took the chance and picked up this great game. It works perfectly on my Macbook Pro, 2.4GHz, Leopard 10.5,
4GB RAM, 256MB video memory, GeForce 8600.

It says on the box that this game is for Intel Macs Only and that INTEGRATED video chipsets is not supported.

The game plays smoothly and is every bit as intense as the console versions. Just don't forget to download the patch from Aspyr's website to allow you to play cross-platform with PC users for online gaming.

One of THE BEST games for Mac!

I have been playing this game on Windows for almost a year now, and while it would have been nice to see a Mac version sooner, it was definitely worth the wait. My 2 Ghz iMac has just the minimum specs for the game, and it plays smoothly, much better in fact then the Windows version on the same hardware. I can finally use antialiased graphics which makes the game much nicer to play, plus I don't have to reboot my computer to switch to Windows anymore. FYI, you will want to get the patch to version 1.7 from Aspyr's website so that you will have the new maps and be able to play with your friends who are on Windows.

Works perfectly on my 2008 iMac at a fairly high resolution. The game is super fun in single player, and especially fun on multiplayer. If you want a first person shooter game for your iMac, this one is a must-have.

My Macbook pro fits within the stated requirements, but the single player mode does not run on it. I get a "quits unexpectedly" message every time, within seconds of launching the app. I contacted ASPYR and spent a lot of time deleting, reinstalling, verifying disk permissions, etc... but it still does not work. The multiplayer works fine (Which leads me to believe that it's not a hardware issue). I tried installing the game on my wife's Macbook Pro. All the specs are identical, but it it runs an older OS 10.4 which is NOT supported according to ASPYR and guess what? It runs! There are a number of glitches, including the fact that as the game starts, the graphics are flipped horizontally and vertically (The top is at the bottom and the left side is on the right). This glitch goes away when I hit "escape" to go back to the main menu, then return to the game. Other than that and some lagging in the video intros, the games runs beautifully, and the frame rate is excellent.

The games is fantastic, the graphics and the environments are stunningly realistic . Modeling and movements of the soldiers are very realistic and contribute greatly to a very immersive experience. The gameplay is intense to say the least. In fact it's often a little too intense for my taste. The situations a so chaotic with foes popping up from everywhere, and bullets and RPG flying all over the place that it's hard to play strategically. You just scramble to keep up with your team and shoot at anything that moves. It's true that there are slower-paced missions also and that with replay and if you have the reflexes of a 14 year olds, this may not be a problem. The mission set is a little short. It only took me about 6 hours to play the entire game.

I think the game is fantastic. That said, before it came out I contacted Aspyr to find out if it really was only going to be for Leopard Macs... They said yes, and that I'd have to buy Leopard to run it. I did so. In fact, I had to revamp my HD to two partitions so I could keep my original Tiger disk to run Quark 6.52 for my day job. (Which doesn't run well in Leopard)

After I got the game, I installed it into my freshly installed and updated Leopard partition. Guess what! IT WON'T EVEN LAUNCH. It crashes when I attempt to start it. The multi-player game starts, but the single-player doesn't. I was frustrated to say the least.

Just out of curiosity, I then rebooted into my Tiger partition to see if it would do anything on that OS. Lo and behold, it ran! It runs just fine on my Aluminum iMac C2D 2.8Ghz Tiger machine, with awesome graphics, textures and such bumped up a little from "recommended" and even running in high resolution! I've been playing it for about 2 hours with no problems whatsoever.

If I get to the end of this game with it running perfectly all the way through, maybe I'll bill Aspyr for the cost of the necessary upgrade and time.

It really is a great game though. Although this post is somewhat of a rant, maybe it will be helpful to someone else who only has Tiger (10.4.11) and wants to run it. Ya might give it a try, despite the "minimum" requirements. I haven't played the multi-player game online though -- it may be the limitation to Leopard I haven't experienced yet. I bought it for the single-player game.
