counterstrike requires halflife. in the 8 years since the first halflife, it has been one of the most stubborn games not to come to the mac platform. which also guarantees counterstrikes non-appearance.

it's one of a legal issue, apparently

For mac gaming you can't beet World of Warcraft or Warcraft 3... long live Blizzard

It's a stand alone, a quality freebie... I like to think of it as a gift from the game developers to us, the good-lookin gamers!

Ahh, I love my rose coloured glasses :)
 
I've been praying for CS to come to Mac for years but the gaming Gods obviously hate me coz it just aint gonna happen.

I've found Call of Duty / CoD United Offensive to be excellent alternatives. I've become much more addicted to CoD:UO than I ever did to CS.

Hehe Counter Strike: Source is sooo addictive. I've got over 400 hours logged playing it :D such a fun game. I started off playing CoD, but CS:S is just so much more fun!

wow, 1.4g is way faster!
boy who draged this out of the closet? i got introduced to the hl world throught friends at work that were into cs. i never really got into it, but really enjoyed hl. the dod came and they took off with that. i was soo ready for hl2 and dod:s when it came out. but becasue dod:s is way too demanding on their computers, they are now going to bf2. in fact i got the demo installed and am going to try it out to see if i want to join them.

The physics in CS:S is what sets it apart IMO. Both the ragdol effect for dead bodies and world objects you can shoot around. So much fun shooting a barrel around, or shooting up a PC in the Office map :)

From what I've heard, it's that very physics engine that is making its transition to Mac so impossible (or at least too hard for Valve to bother with)

From what I could gather, that is not true. The problem is: The code already exists for the Havoc-Engine to be ported to OS X, it's just that the developer firm wants too much money for any Mac publisher could bring up

I didn't know that. I was just repeating what I have heard.

I kind of hope you're wrong, because that is a disgraceful reason to hold back porting such an important game to the Mac. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:
