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.
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.
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!

It was a good purchase and its a very fun game if like war games then this is your gamePublished 11 months ago by jaimemendoza
Not a fan of this one. There was a lot of hope for the Quake series and this kinda sent it downhill. Even as a team game it's kind of weak.Published on August 12, 2013 by macskills
You can tell this is made by third party developers and not ID as it lacks any of the excitment and finesse of ID's Quake series.Published on February 8, 2013 by Deimos
boring and complicated at the same time if that's possible. I wouldn't recommend this game to any hardcore gamer. black opps or borderlands2 is the better way to goPublished on February 8, 2013 by horrible
