there's no way this game is anywhere near as bad as a lot of people say. It's got it's points that could be better but it's still a great game. PPC and Intel support - thank you!
No one in their right minds would expect a GMA/macbook or mini to be great for games. Moan at your choice of Mac, not the game.
I'd give this game a 8.5/10

I optimistically bought this came after reading about a groundbreaking first person shooter not just ported for Mac. Unfortunately, I found that although my Macbook exceeds the system requirements by a fair margin, the GMA 950 chip is not fully supported in the Universal Binary update for this game. After updating the game runs very smoothly but the graphics are locked to the lowest settings and the weapon will not render. I emailed the developer and was told that these options were locked on certain computers to optimize performance. Personally I would choose the option of sacrificing some performance if only to have my damn weapon render in front of me. I only give this game a two instead of a one is because the small portion of it that I have played seemed to be fairly accurate and the tactics were realistic enough (although a fire team leader is usually the second man, but I can see that the game wouldn't be as fun if the PFC in front killed everybody for you) I reiterate. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IF YOU INTEND TO PLAY IT ON A MACBOOK. Unless of course you enjoy poor graphics and no ability to change your options.

I was very excited when I bought this game cause everything about it looked awesome. But then I played it... The sights on the weapons stink, the singleplayer stinks, you can walk through the doors and players. That means when you through a nade against the open door it will just hit the corner behind it, thus killing your teammates.

Rarely do I give such a scathing review but this game earns every bit of it.
