Fallout 3 has been available as a Wineskin port for over 5 years however the performance has been sub par and it hasn't been the easiest game to install. With many advances in Wine and CrossOver source codes over the last 12 months performance has increased to a nearly native performance when played on proper hardware (2011 and above). In fact, WineHQ now has Fallout 3 rated within the top 3 Gold rated installs.
There is now a recently updated wrapper available at the Porting Team database for anyone that may be interested in playing Fallout 3 on their Mac. A concise set of installation instructions are also available at the link below and are included in an .rtf file located on the downloaded disk image.
This wrapper was tested on a 2011 MBP Core i7 @ 2.2GHz with RadeonHD 6750M, 512MB and 16GB of RAM
Performance depends on your system hardware but can be played quite nicely on a 2009 MacBook with nVidea graphics as well. Advanced settings should be configured according to the hardware it is being installed upon.
The wrapper only supports Mac OS X 10.6.8 and above
