    All those games will probably run, but run well? That might be another story...

    Tetris - Quinn - Will run perfectly
    Starcraft - Will run perfectly. use this installer to install in OS X.
    Rise of Nations - I have tried on my iBook 12" 1.2GHZ Radeon 9200 and I find it just barely playable. Maybe you will have better results with the Radeon 9550?

    I don't like it. Too many requirements for a game that is repetitive and wih bad graphics

    I have halo on my PC. Its not bad. It is just a port of the Xbox version. The action has to be a little slower because controling with analog sticks is a little harder.

    No, I think it would run fine if set to low-medium textures and with such advanced options turned off like frame buffer effects and soft shadows.

    How is tetris built in to OSX, do you use the console to get to it?

    Yes it is in the console and I will look up how to do it and post back. There are a lot of neat little games like that built into the OS
