Sometimes a marquee video game series is a best-seller for good reason. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, developed by Infinity Ward, published by Activision and converted to the Mac by Aspyr, is the latest installment of the Call of Duty series. Breaking from its typically World War II-themed roots, the latest chapter focuses on a present-day conflict involving the United States, United Kingdom and Russian forces fighting both a group of Russian ultranationalists in Russia as well as rebels in a small Middle Eastern country...MACWORLD: Star Wars: Empire at War Review
Star Wars: Empire at War from Aspyr Media is the Mac gaming giant’s first game exclusively for Intel-based Macs. As such, it has left a sour taste in the mouths of many PowerPC Mac users. But according to Aspyr, it had no choice—it was either do that or not make the game at all, according to the company’s director of development. Regardless of whether it should have or even could have been produced to run on PowerPC-based Macs, Empire at War stands as a fantastic real-time strategy game set in the Star Wars universe; if you have the equipment to run it, you ought to consider it. Star Wars: Empire at War eschews the prequel trilogy but also avoids directly the “original” trilogy of Star Wars films—instead, it’s set a few years before the events seen in the trio of films starring Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. But the setup is the same—the Rebellion is stirring, and the Galactic Empire doesn’t want to see it happen.
