    Apple store sells Ford racing 2 and Total immersion Racing...

    Maybe one of them would be good?

    Hi,

    Am looking at the Total Immersion Racing, it says it is for system OS 10.1.3, my husband uses OS 10.4.7, will it work on his system?

    Yes it will work. It means 10.1.3 and up. Also take a look a Nascar 2003 its quite good fun. Cant remember who its by though.

    Aspyr.com and macsoftgames.com are a good place to look. :)

    If it were out (it's currently in Final Candidate form) I'd say grab him a game from Ambrosia called Redline, but alas, it's not out.

    When is your husband's birthday? I can keep you informed as to it's progress (I'm a beta tester for it).

    Maybe pick another gift now and get Colin McRae Rally for Christmas.

    From http://www.macgamer.com/features/?id=2003:

    Maybe time for a new Mac... I found this:
    But wait!

    Those games in the Apple Store seem quite old. From the comments, it seems that the simulation is quite basic. I'm convinced McRae will be way better.

    But I'm concerned about this requirement for McRae published in one shop about graphics card with 128MiB of VRAM. You would need a pretty new PowerBook, and no iBook.

    I wouldn't play a racing game without a wheel and pedals. There're are some Logitech with force feedback which support Mac. There's one UK shop selling one in bundle with McRae.
