    It's a 1.67 GHz 160 Gb Hard drive, 2 Gb of RAM, 17" screen, running 10.4. Anyone have any suggestions on a good FPS kinda like the ever popular Combat Arms? Or something kinda like Counter Strike?

    Unreal Tournament 03, but that is an arena shooter with exaggerated physics. Or maybe one of the Rainbow Six series, a one shot kill, strategy shooter. And the original Call of Duty.

    I forgot all about Unreal and Rainbow Six, thanks!

    I also didn't know that CoD would run on this thing, damn.

    I don't know if this would run on your system, but since it's browser-based, it shouldn't be too GPU intensive. Quake Live: http://www.quakelive.com/

    OpenArena is free and plays great on my G4 with the graphics maxed.Upgrading your RAM would be a good idea though.It is is an arena shooter with exaggerated physics or maybe one of the Rainbow Six series, a one shot kill, strategy shooter.

    That looks interesting. A free, cross-platform FPS. Do you know what's expected for the new version?

    The onlive service sounds nice for older machines like this.

    New levels, and some of the current ones have been expanded.

    There'll also be some clever graphical effects, like this water video from their YouTube page...

    and as its based on Q3 Engine, there are 100's of custom maps

    No one lives forever.

    Look for Universal / PowerPC games here:

    The colors are for intel macs. Red means would work on PPC.

    That's for intel macs.

    The OP might have better luck with UT2004, which, as I recall, ran better than 2003 on my PB.

    The original UT runs best of all.

    Yeah, original CoD, CoD: United Offensive, CoD2, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down, Ghost Recon, Lego Star Wars 1 + 2 (if that's your thing).

    Probably loads more, but those listed were ideal on the 1.67GHz 17" PBG4.

    Thanks all, Urban Terror was sweeeet, and I really liked the original CoD. Also, I really loved playing Rainbow Six. Good stuff. No One Lives Forever is next on my list. :)

    No One Lives Forever is one of my fav games. Actually runs better on PPC than intel macs...

    If you sneak around, you can get to hear funny conversations.

    Rogue Spear!!!! Well actually all the old rainbow six games. Rainbow Six, Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear, Rogue Spear Urban Operations, and Rainbow Six Raven Shield.


    My start to Pc gaming was all on a clamshell i book, feels good to look back on it. I actually really miss the quality of those games, great tactical FPS, nothing plays like that anymore.

    If you enjoy first person shooters go for it. Also Star Craft, you could load up Star Craft and the expansion Brood War. They should run well. Great games if you enjoy Real Time Strategy.
