5-Stars for Value

Let me preface this review by stating that I got the game for $25. That having been said, this is a great value and I feel like, at this price, it's very well worth the price.

I've played through this game on a console before but sold it when the sequel came out. Itching to play it again, I thought I'd give it a try on my Mac since I don't often game on this. When I looked at the Apple store, I realized that they (along with Aspyr) were charging a full $50 for the game and that didn't quite sit right with me. I'm not a huge fan of the trend of releasing older games on the Mac at new prices, so when I saw this in the App store at $25 I pounced.

Onto the game...runs very well on my cinema display powered by a 2.4 GHz MacBook Pro 13" with 4GB of RAM and the NVIDIA 320M chip. I haven't tried to turn all options to their highest yet but everything runs very smoothly at medium settings. Just don't use a Magic Mouse if you can avoid it.

The campaign is a very good experience that every fan of the FPS genre should experience if they haven't already. Playing through the opening level last night brought back a lot of memories of the first time I played the game.

If the price is still at $25, you won't be disappointed in your purchase! If they hike it back up to $50, look for the hard-copy elsewhere.


When this game was released for the mac, it was ovbvious they were only intrested in makeing money. This game has a very short campaign which isnt great. This is for the multiplayer. However the multiplayer is full of people who 'mod' which is cheating giving themselves unfair advantages. To futher uneven the playing field If you walk across the street on any given map you are likely to be hit by a bomb from a jet or mowed down by a helicopters mini gun time and time agian. When a player makes 6 kills in a row he can call in an airstrike. The guys who mod obviously start to own; Ther is no disableing any of thees features either. There are very few mutliplayer maps most all of which are terrible. Ther Is no hiding bhind walls because bullets go righ through them. Skill in this game becomes irrelavant provided all the factors given above. To boot when you custumize your own player the options are "incrediably" limited, You get to choose your gun, but you can only have the silencer or the scope, you cant have both. I really want to convience you not to buy this game. Save yourself!! Save your money. It is sad to see 600 5 star rateings. That is sad indeed.

It would be amazing to have my money back, you will do wayy beter with a different first person. Call of duty devlopers clearly do not have the gamer in mind.

PS: the graphics provided in the advertisement look wayy better than what the game acually does.


Honestly, I thought the price was a little too high but once I started playing I forgot all about it! Alot of people dont look at the campaign and just look at multiplayer I loved the campaign more than block ops. This compared to black ops is like comparing dirt to gold! The campaign is absolutely amazing. I really love this game. Honestly I didn't think gaming on the a computer was going to be as good as xbox but its WAY better. This is a great game buy it now! The multiplayer provides hours of fun to the point you might sit inside for 3 years and not now it. Its addicting. I have one complaint and its not with the game . WHY DO PEOPLE NOT MAKE ALL THE GAMES FOR MAC!!!!!!!!!! I am going to get windows and install on bootcamp so i can get pc games but i really really REALLY dont want to do that. why do people not develop every game there is for mac. I want COD MW2 I want COD MW3 i want Battlefield 3 I want SOOOOOOO many games for mac that are only for pc and its really frustrating apple! Do something about it I want to be able to game on my Mac. This is a great game though you should really buy it cause its amazing and provides countless hours of fun.
