A year ago, I started using Mac OSX due to some work. Before I was and still using Xubuntu (ardent fans of Linux based OSes). Then I noticed I cant have some playtime on it. I have large stash of Windows Based Games but they will be useless on Mac OSX.
I searched and found the best way , better than Bootcamp (Bootcamp truly sucks) i.e install WINE. I have used WINE before for play odd titles on Xubuntu. Thus I was relieved to found it. Best way to install WINE is from Homebrew also it requires dependency xquartz. Type following to Install
brew install wine
brew install xquartz
You can also use winetricks from Homebrew.
These are some titles that I found worth playing with WINE on Mac OSX. Don’t expect AAA titles.
Assassin’s Creed / II
Assassin’s Creed install without error and plays better on WINE even than on Windows.Well if you are fan then surely try it.
Counter Strike : Condition Zero
Installs without error , run fantastic. More fun. I haven’t tried Multiplayer Mode.But its best.
NFS Underground 2
Not my favourite but it runs good.
You can also try and install Devil May Cry (2013). It worked for me in beginning but crashed after.
WINE is best for installing Windows based applications on Mac OSX. Saves money (buying Parallels Desktop or Windows) and saves space (installing Windows via Bootcamp).
Happy Gaming On Mac OSX with WINE. 🙂 🙂 🙂
