    Hey, can anyone recommend a really good RTS which will run natively on a late 2008 intel MBP.
    If it's an MMORTS I don't mind either.
    Preferably I'd like to run it without rosetta or a cider port, but if it apparently runs well I don't mind ;).
    Good graphics are preferable, but gameplay is very important too.
    In my mind I'm considering Warcraft 3, StarCraft, AoE series etc. Any input would be great.

    If you don't mind using Crossover Games then Dawn of War (1, not 2) is a fantastic RTS game.

    Command & Conquer 3 is a good RTS game that runs beautifully native in OSX.

    Warcraft III without a doubt
    AoE3 is OK
    and when Rome Total War comes (sorry for dragging it up again) there is no excuse not to buy it :)

    Age of Empires 3 is fantastic if you are into history and micro management base building - both expansion packs are available for the mac too, so there is a lot of content available.

    The games looks unbelievable on my 27" C2D

    Warcraft 3 is fun too

    There are demos for both I think so try them out first.

    I will vote again for Warcraft 3. It is very fun and I still play it. Whenever StarCraft 2 is released, im sure it will be great and should run on your computer. But I don't think it is until 2010

    To me, the best RTS games are the Total War series games; Rome: Total War in particular. Which may or may not be released for Mac in a couple of months. Keep an eye out for it; amazing gameplay and extremely tactical.

    Total War:Midevil was the best RTs I ever played. It's the first of the Total War series.
