What are the best Zombie shooter games on the mac?

I am in a obsessive Zombie shoot-up phase. I need quite a scare. It doesn't necessarily have to be a zombie, but a survival- horror game would be nice.

Left 4 Dead was tons of fun on the 360 for me


(only out for X360 and PC for now...so I don't if you have Windows on your Mac or not)

Are any of the crop of semi-current or current zombie games Mac native? I think the best you can do is Windows on Boot Camp. Left 4 Dead gets my vote as it's outstanding and most wonderful off line coop.

Stubbs the zombie is a reverse zombie game. Mac version is PPC and won't run well on intel, so you can use a PC version.

L4d is pretty good if you get to play with decent people.

No announcements. They did provided content for TF2, so with L4D costing more than TF2, they probably will provide some content. However, nothing announced on the official blog at l4d.com

I'm not sure if it is for PC/MAC but COD5:WAW (Call of Duty 5: World at War) has an amazing zombie mode...AMAZING.

I second that! I think i've played Nazi Zombies more than the actual WaW game! I do believe it is only PC/Boot camp though...shame...

I really enjoyed Stubbs! Just picked up the Mac version ultra-cheap, so even if it plays like crap I won't mind. And if I do mind I can just pull out the PC version.

There is a cider port of L4D floating around, you could buy the game for windows then play the ported one on mac

L4D for sure.

But how is a Cider port going to work, can that even connect to the Steam servers? Is it even legal?

I have the port to test out on OSX and it does not connect to steam servers. It's basically a standalone game, no steam nothing, just loads the game up and you play single player. I didn't care for it since I wanted steam services/achievements so I stick w/ rebooting into windows to play my steam ver. Not sure the legality of it either.

With L4D and other Valve games, the real joy is in the online multiplayer versions. The Cider Port does not offer this, so it's really not worth it.

I always thought that having zombies in cod wow is a joke. But since so many people mentioned it...

What!
Then what's the point? The single player in L4D is useless since the bots are so poor. It's a multiplayer game! Gah. I'll never understand the reasoning of relentless anti-Windows folk.

You really should. I have played on XboxLive with 3 of my friends and had an awesome time. Some may say it is the best part of the game...

Killing Floor is a good survival horror, can't go wrong with L4D either.

Bootcamp recommended for both though. Not much fun without multiplayer imo.
