    I don't think there is, you have to buy the game for it to be universal.

    Stinks doesn't it?

    How bad did it run? I was running the demo at 1920x1080 on my MacBook Pro and it was playable, although it didn't run as smooth as natively in XP on the MacBook.

    "Perfectly fine?"

    Then you haven't played it on a real machine. Running the original Halo on my iMac G4 with all settings on low was as slow as it running on my iMac Core Duo with all settings up. This of course was the PPC version.

    The UB version runs much more better as you can imagine. It could play at a steady 30 FPS with the proper settings.
