    Here's my dilemma, with UT3, CoD4, and Quake Wars all coming as native Mac apps in short order I need to choose which one is most worth playing. I'm leaning to CoD4, but I'm not convinced - especially because the single player campaign is supposedly short.

    What other opinions are out there?

    well the other 2 games don't really have a single player at all. so since they all have a nice multiplayer, i would get cod4 just because it even has a single player

    I've played the ut3 demo under windows a fair bit, and it's pretty much more of the same, a few gameplay tweaks and an funky new engine. Still great fun though :D

    I've got COD4 on XBOX, played it every day for about 3 months and got a bit bored, good game though.

    Quake wars, umm, imo it doesn't play well at all, i played the demo for an evening, enough time to give the demo a good go, but i wasn't exactly wowed by it, not to mention i've seen the pc version in the bargain bin at more than one store :rolleyes:



    If you can bootcamp your mac i'd really recommend the orange box, specifically TF2, theres enough content there to keep you going for a long time :D

    Quake wars allows you to play against and with bots. It takes a little to get started but after playing a lil more its pretty darn good in my view you can fly, drive,walk or run and has a nice mix of vehicles. I think ETQW,UT3 and COD4 make for a good selections of 1st person shooters for the Mac.:)
