And run it at full speed?
No. Running under virtualisation is going to be impossibly slow for most games (and the majority of modern games won't run that way anyhow).
Crossover does not use bootcamp nor a full install of windows inside a virtual machine.
It IS however a psuedo vm and will install the games (if supported) in what are called 'bottles' and they run. They boast Team Fortress 2 running at VERY fast speeds.
Not all games are supported though and it's still technically 'virtualization' but not really :]
A couple of games can be converted to OS X.
They boast it but it's far from true. I had to lower the resolution somewhat, drop any hopes of a (smooth) fullscreen mode and turn all the graphics down to low (in DX7/8 mode).
I can imagine Crossover being quite good for 2D games and older 3D titles. It's just not that great for anything circa 2004.
