Black Ops Mac vs PC
Is there any difference between the two games in content or graphics between the Mac and PC?
I wonder about the graphics mainly, as typically PC games mostly use DirectX which is Microsoft only and OSX typically uses OpenGL. It would seem rather hard to get a graphical match using the two different systems.

Not that much
Content wise, exactly the same..... Graphics wise... big difference. It all depends on what type of card you have. for a mac its either Nvidia (2000-2010) or AMD (2011-2012) Mac OSX does't use Direct X11 or X10, so gameplay could be different. Bioshock, Deux revolution play well on my Mid 2010 15" Macbook pro on medium-high settings.

OpenGL has some clever things, however most devs tend to avoid it because it is rather.... glitchy. DirectX however delivers superior performance and is much more stable.
Frames and rendering will be noticeably smoother and higher on a PC.

Mac and PC players can't play together. biggest reason to NOT buy the Mac version.
