Really interested in many of the games on this website and am an old gamer for decades. Question is, before I start buying, has anyone had any success with any of these running on a Mac with Bootcamp and Windows 7?

I apologize if this has been asked before. This is my first post.

Hey Teri, thanks! That thread was even better than I hoped for. Great news indeed! I'll be buying a title to try it out soon.

You're welcome. I just got a MacBook and have been thinking of trying some of my games out on it too.

Get Parallels 7 and you can play any Matrix title. You can even play Empire Total War using Parallels 7 on The Mac :)

Thanks, Jean. I'm pretty set now that I'm going to try Bootcamp BUT if that doesn't work I agree that Parallels 7 is the way to go.

Bootcamp is sure way for running MatrixGames on Mac
it is not emulation, it is standard windows installation on intel chip based computer

Based on what I've researched, I agree. If for some odd reason Bootcamp doesn't work for me then Parallels 7 would be an option.

It's best to use Parallels 7 if you have at least 4 GB of RAM as you have to allocate your RAM between your Parallels Windows setup & your normal Mac setup. If you have 2 GB RAM or less, my experience is that it's better to run on Bootcamp.

Hope this helps.

Is bootcamp something similar to Wine?

No bootcamp assists in setting it up as a dual boot.

Parallels and VMWare Fusion let it run in a virtual machine.
