    Has anyone bought COD 2 on the App Store ?
    I loved the demo and have never got around to buying the game, but now that it's on the app store, I thought I'd give it a shot.
    However, it seems to be quite unstable. Can anyone confirm (or disprove) this rumour ?

    I didn't buy it from the app store but I have the game and it really is quite a poor port. I can play it on max settings, the game is all right but as far as I know it costs 30 and thats not worth it at all considering it is so old.

    Call of Duty 2 on disk

    If you live in the UK, offers a physical disk (not download) for £19.95, and this weekend there will be free shipping, so thats a better price than the app store, for a real copy of the game! If you get in touch with the support department, you may even be able to negotiate a better price!

    For those with Rosetta installed (Snow Leopard and under), I have already provided, in other threads, the most effective workaround for laggy performance in CoD 2. Just do a Get Info on the app file and tick the "Open with Rosetta" option.

    You will see that GFX performance is greatly improved, the reason being: Aspyr did this port a long time ago and decided not to ensure that the application was compatible with newer GPUs.

    The use of Rosetta somehow minimizes that limitation and provides a better experience for users not on Lion.

    You can get COD2 for Mac via Amazon direct download for $14.98. After seeing that it was in the Mac App Store it caught my attention, but I would never pay the hefty price tag Apple sticks on all of the better/more fun games.

    I'm playing it right now at 720p and everything is flawless, except occasionally if the battles get intense with lots of people firing there is a minor lag, but nothing fatal. I mean, what do you expect from a UB game?

    I could probably run it at 1080p, but haven't gotten around to changing the display setting. Will try it now and play a level and then report back. Surely it'll be a breeze for my 2010 mini, given that the game is so old, and I have an SSD and 8GB RAM.

    EDIT 1: I should mention that I am playing the game while running the latest version of OS X Lion. It hasn't given me any issues whatsoever, so I conclude that Amazon's download is Lion-friendly. While on topic about Lion-friendly, I have read that Call of Duty and Call of Duty United Defense are not compatible with Lion. I was going to get those games as well last night but read that they were incompatible.

    CoD Cheats

    Totally new to this. Decided to purchase the first CoD game (app). Needed some cheat codes to help me through the game.

    Have been through this thread to try solve the problem but I've tried all suggestions here:
    This thread is from 2004, so I couldn't reply on it.

    Was hoping someone out there could help me?
