    I seem to recall the first Splinter Cell being released for OS X. Not really an action shooter, but a super neat 3rd person game.

    Although I am biased (as I worked on it) but... Tomb Raider Anniversary? That is as close as you get to Uncharted :)

    You can try out the demo by downloading it from here.

    Honestly, quality 3rd person games are a bit hard to find... even for Windows, especially for OS X. I'm really not sure what else to suggest unless you were to go with Bootcamp.

    Valve is releasing any day a steam UI for MAC. most games developed for steam will be running on MACs including counterstrike source.

    To clarify this statement, Valve is bringing their online game distribution system, called STEAM, to OS X. Valve is also natively porting all of their popular games (Left 4 Dead 1 + 2, HalfLife series, Team Fortress 2, Counterstrike Source, etc).
    The Steam system also distribues a lot of a games that aren't made by Valve. These games are NOT currently being ported to OS X like Valve's games are. It's up to the developers of each individual game to decide if they want to get on board with that. So when Steam for Mac launches, the only games available will be Valve's.

    None of which are 3rd person shooters =P
