    I had VMware Fusion 2 and warcraft on it would run really bad. The screen resolution was messed, it wouldn't go full screen. The mouse was laggy and the whole screen would keep blinking, it was playable, but it was a pain. So i just played it on boot camp.
    Today, i got VMware Fusion 3. It made things even worse. Before i could atleast play, not it lags like CRAAZYYYY. Its just pissing me off, especially when it was specifically said on their site that 3rd version is suppose to make gaming much better....

    Anyone else have this problem? Do i need to tweak any settings to optimize it?

    By "warcraft" do you mean World of Warcraft? If so, why not just use the Mac OS X version of the game?

    I would not attempt to play games under a virtualized os but rather natively, i.e., bootcamp.

    FWIW, people have gotten some games to play decently under parallels. VMware isn't known for game performance so you'll get the worst performance from that. Still even under parallels it cannot be too good (depending on the game)

    The reason why i dont play warcraft mac version is because i play on garena and its only on windows. and i dont like rebooting everytime in bootcamp...
