Re: Play Counter Strike on Mac

You cannot install counter strike strike on mac as it is a windows based game. However you can install Windows on mac using boot camp. From windows you will be able to play all the windows Based games. See this thread for more help on boot camp and installing windows on mac using boot camp.

Re: Play Counter Strike on Mac

I used to play games on Ubuntu linux using wine. Isn't there any such software for Mac through which i can run windows games natively on linux? Please advice. Is there no other way to play windows games on Mac except bootcamp? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Play Counter Strike on Mac

There are some softwares which will allow you to install windows programs on mac natively. But there is no assurance that all the applications would work. You can try Darwine which is the wine port for Mac, it needs mac ports to run. there is also a mac port for Crossover. Try it out. Hope this helps.

If you are a gamer then you don't switch to MAC.

MAC is a great machine, UI is awesome but you can't do many things on it, like playing counter strike. It's like this marrying a hottie but turns out you are not allowed to sleep with her!
