Some of my favorite RTS games for Mac:

Age of Empires III:
17th century(ish) style war game. Really fun game, lots of different empires to play, graphics are great.

Starcraft II:
Futuristic space battle. Newer release, graphics are beautiful (can be taxing).

Warcraft III:
Fantasy-based, set in the Warcraft universe (similar to WoW, yet it's predecessor). Similar to Starcraft mechanics/functionality (also by Blizzard). Simple & clean, yet nice graphics.

Command & Conquer games:
Classic games, some recent releases some older. Style ranges from traditional modern military combat with a twist -to futuristic military combat. Recent games have nice graphics, but can be taxing.

Good tips, and my third MBA is promised to be perfect + Thunderbolt cables And some extra stuff for the hassle.

Command & Conquer 3 is a really good one. I don't know if it works on Lion though. Star Wars Empire at War is awesome but it's better to have it for Windows because the expansion pack is only on Windows..unfortunately.

Seems Not

How damn ridiculous do you guys /girls think we are all work and no play?

If you can run Dead Space & Games of the same graphic intensity, why not give us full Mac versions I wouldn't normally buy repeat a game I've played, but the 27" is SO tempting.

Anyone know of the similar kind of game (Not COD) played em all

just downloaded 'Wargame: European Escalation'

Its basically a moderen version of blitzkrieg, very challenging. good fun. and the graphics are pretty impressive.

check out this good video about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Nf2OcCpeaI

MarketGlory is a strategy game, in which you have the possibility to convert your virtual currency into real money.

As a simulation game, it offers you the possibility to fight, work, open companies, start wars. It is a very complex game , and the more you play it, the more options you find for your own development.
Thanks for bumping a year old thread. Please don't do that again.

And you have two total posts. Is this the first forum you've ever used?

I think StarCraft Battle Chest and Worms 3D are best RTS games.

Hard to believe everyone left out Company of Heroes.

Its single player only as the MP modes were removed, but if you don't mind that it is an AMAZING strategy game and some of the best you will find in the RTS genre. It was overpriced at $50 when it launched, but now it is a very reasonable $30 and you will get a large chunk out of hours with all the included content.

Get it if you like the idea of, or are into WW2 strategy.
