    I still play both. Just because BF - Vietman is out don't mean I don't feel like playing some Ol' Skool War games.

    Something to keep me occupied while the TAFE teachers blabber on about shit.

    I hate to admit to this, but I was so jealous that my uncle could play this game on a pc but I couldn't on my mac nearly made me buy a 2nd hand pc just for games. I think it's great for software companies to spend more time on mac users. I just wish that macworld australia or someone would produce a demo cd of the latest softwares for those of us in rural australia who have no chance to download huge demo files. If I can try it and I like it I'll buy it. If I can't try it there's no way I'm going to buy it.
    Anyway, good move. If I can try a demo and it works as well as I expect it to I'll definately buy it.

    Yeah I only have a PC with Windows on it to play Counterstrike and various other games. It would be great if game developers ported more software across. Especially the network games.

    I'm an avid game player AND a rabid Mac user (8 the two are not mutually exclusive 8), I try not to get too upset at the plethora of games for PeeCee, I take solace in the fact that a lot of them are dull & the really good ones get ported to my platform of choice... eventually. I only play games on my Mac (apart my old Ataris) & where possible I like to play cross-platform games to make sure the dudes on the receiving end know they were thrashed by a Mac 8)

    I'm heartened by the fact that since OSX a lot more developers are simultaneously releasing PeeCee & Mac versions. Sad still that we end up missing out on some of the nice added extras (Map editors etc.) but I'm still petitioning in my own annoying one-man operation several developers to add these tools too.

    Have a look at Unreal Tournament 2004 for an example of a great game with (close to) simultaneous Mac & PeeCee release
    http://www.macgamefiles.com/detail.php?item=18034

    very close to a simultaneous release (2 weeks apart ;)

    seriously the best game I've *EVER* played (thats a BIG statement) but its system requirements are pretty heavy.

    I was playing some BF last night on the PC and noticed a few ppl using [MAC] as their clan tags

    Can't wait for Battlefield 2

    I code, I eat and I'm hungry for more.

    I don't care how late it is, what an awesome game! I seriously contemplated getting a PC for gaming because of this very game (and the fact that Counter-Strike will never be released on Mac ) So this is great news!! Plus, it will work on the new iBook when it arrives, after I order it, which will be after Tiger is released because I'm too tight to pay for postage

    How awesome is this!!

    Call of Duty is cool singleplayer...the multiplay sucks, it's not big like BF1942 is
    plus the game isn't as free as BF1942, you can do so much cooler shit in BF1942
    the only advantages COD has of BF is the realism, graphics and sound
    I personally like the freedom and playability of BF1942 over COD...hence why I'm selling my copy on appletalk

    Can you fly a plane in CoD ?

    Sure CoD is awesome single player (the voice actors were what made it for me ... particularly Steven Blum/David Lucas) but it's MP was lacking.

    Looks interesting. I think I'd rather my son was playing this than America's Army (fat chance though hey?).

    It's a big file to download so I hope you're gonna give us a review soon.

    America's Army is quite a pain in the ass doing all the training before being able to jump in and play. You have to play it online too which is quite a pain (unless you play LAN).

    napes: CoD multiplayer sucks, it doesn't feature much (in terms of multiplayer games) which Doom didn't feature back in 1994 or whenever the hell it came out. Play BF1942 multiplayer, you'll see what I mean...the games are damn crazy! People everywhere (usually around 40 or so), in tanks, planes, boats, jeeps all that bollocks, it's awesome! Even co-op with a few of your (PC or Mac) buddies is a damn good night, we do it often.

    Sweet. I love BF1942. What servers are you guys playing on. I play on iHug server. I play on a windoze box though.

    Has BF2 got a mac version coming?
