You can read up on whether this game is one that you will enjoy without worrying about if you're reading up on the Mac version of this game.

This review is here to tell you that the port to the Mac was done well, as far as I can tell with my 2008 Mac Pro and ATI 2600 video card. The game is smooth at 2560x1600 on the 2600, though once or twice I have noticed jerkiness with the action gets really intense. I have been on the fence about upgrading to the Nvidia 8800, but I don't game THAT much so it's probably not worth it for my use. The 2600 + Mac experience is definitely better than the XP version was on my ATI 1650 Pro at 1920x1200, though of course the 1650 Pro is an older card.

One worry I have as a multi-monitor user is whether launching a game is going to screw up all my windows, or show up on some random monitor. This game does NOT interfere with other open windows, even when running it at a different resolution. It also launches properly onto my main screen. It would be nice if it provided a choice of which screen to run on, but this behavior is OK for me. It also properly blanks out the other screens.

The only surprise for me is that the game requires the DVD to be present in the drive. Sure, a lot of games do this, but I don't recall other id titles requiring this. Kind of annoying, but not the end of the world.

This game is a blast to play and the work that went into porting it is clearly visible, optimizing it for the Mac OS X operating system in order to make sure it runs on Apple's sometimes limited software. This game runs great on my 2007 entry level iMac at HD resolutions with nearly all settings maxed out by default. Aspyr just updated it to once again align with the pc version, so although it is sometimes frustrating waiting for games, the quality that Aspyr puts into their ports makes it *almost* worth the wait!

This is a fine port of a fun game, and at the current price (~$8-$10), it's a great deal. However, buyers need to be aware that in order to play online, most servers require that Punkbuster (an anti-cheating plugin) be up-to-date. Unfortunately, the Punkbuster folks no longer support ET:QW.

There is a Punkbuster standalone installer, but if you're running OS X 10.7 or later, the standalone installer won't work (it's a legacy PowerPC app, and 10.7 does away with PPC compatibility). Both the Punkbuster folks and Aspyr say the solution is to run it on OS X 10.6 or earlier, and of course they point the finger at each other when presented with this issue.

So, if you haven't yet upgraded your OS to 10.7 or higher (10.8 is right around the corner at this writing), or if you don't mind creating a dual-boot situation, you should have some success playing this online. Just don't expect to last on any server more than a couple of minutes if you're running it on 10.7 or later.

Well I was surprised. This game will not run with Snow Leopard 10.6.8, I assume it will run with 10.6.7 but not 10.6.8. What a drag. And since this game came out in 2007, seems support has been dropped. I did not read the reviews so it might have been mentioned there. I just assumed it would work up to Mac OS 10 >

For you folks using a Mac, this review is for you...
I am using a Mac Pro that has twin, 2.8 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processors. 10GB total RAM.
and a ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT video card. (ATI Radeon HD 2600 chipset) VRAM (Total) 256mb.

And this game is putty in it's capable hands. Video, sound, online, everything works wonderfully on the highest settings with all the bells and whistles. I bought the game used (Which I suggest, for around $17.00 from a vendor here on Amazon) I have been having big fun learning how everything works, and all the maps, it's massive and a lot of fun. Please take into account that you are reading the review of a 49 year old man, who still loves first person shooters. I am an original Doom & Quake fan, and have played them all. You must have a machine that can muscle through all of the code that ID can through at it, but in return you will be highly satisfied, when you pop an opponent from 200 yards out. (Ziiiip!) Or come crashing in weapons blazing wiping out anything in your path. If this is not your style of game, and you would rather watch cute critters or bouncing balls, or waste away hours in a puzzles, this ain't for you. In this version of the Quake Saga, you will need to be a team player. But that's what makes this so much more then a blind shoot whatever comes into your path, 'First Person Shooter'. You need your pals, and they need you. Whether your more of a sniper, tough ass, wrench, medic, this game has a place for you to try your hand at strategy in a fast paced, killer game. Smokin Hot! Great Fun!

I don't play a lot of games and I am a new Mac user as well. This plays great on my new MacBook Pro, 2.6 GHz, 4 Gb RAM, 512 video RAM, 200 Gb 7200 rpm drive, 17 -inch glossy screen Hi-Res. Smooth video and action. No problems what so ever. I'm very pleased.

For those who love combat simulation, cool weapons and a game that's dependent upon tactics and team-play, ENEMY TERRITORY QUAKE WARS is the game for you! Setting the story on Earth, The Strogg once more annoy us with their conquest of our universe. They try to systematically control resources to take over the planet so they can achieve a quick victory. Your team with a combination of different skills must use the terrain, tactics and team-play to defeat The Strogg. But have a care; their W.M.D.'s are strong and sufficient enough to wipe us out. One of the key point players are The Engineers (that you must protect) who help repair and set up way points to advance your team, but all team members are equally important to blow back The Strogg back where they came from. Have fun playing in the multi-player end of the game to go head to head with some of the best players on the net (in the same tradition as the free on-line game Wolfestein: Enemy Territory). As always, be sure to have your computer upgraded above recommended system setting to be immersed with maximum effect! Have fun and fight!!!!!
