    Which version of OS X is it? 10. what?

    Also, has it always been like this? If not, then it could be a failing hard drive...

    First of all, is English your native language? If it is, please ensure you make at least some effort to spell your words correctly as it makes a huge difference in understanding what it is you are asking. If not, disregard, we'll try and push through best we can.

    First off, what are the system requirements for those games? I am unfamiliar with them and just want to check that you are not playing games designed for a more powerful system.

    Are you running any other programs in the background that may be eating up processor/RAM/GPU cycles whilst you are trying to play the games?

    When you say "slow" what do you mean? Do you mean the game itself is slow ie. low fps? Do you mean that when you are playing a game the rest of the OS is slow? You have to be more specific.

    Those are some pretty old games... are you running them in Mac OS X or in Classic? Diablo II can be updated to a Mac OS X native version here and StarCraft here.
