Crysis 2 for Mac

While Steam has now a workaround, we continue with a new ported Origin game: Crysis 2 for Mac! I was quite impressed how well the game runs on even my  medium end Intel Iris iMac! I recently ported the First Crysis as well, so this one is a real welcoming as well. I added a recording of some gameplay of the game in Porting Kit. Find the video embedded below. Enjoy this one!

Game description:
In New York, terrifying alien invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city’s myriad inhabitants with brutal epidemic speed. The city’s systems are in chaos, its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you’ve never seen it before. Neither paramilitary law enforcement nor the might of the US military machine can stand against the invaders, and all who choose not to flee are dead men walking. Just to survive in this maelstrom of death will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 for Mac

Hooah! We keep it coming! We added Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 for Mac to Porting Kit and Crossover! I played the game for about 30 minutes without issues on my Medium end Intel Iris iMac (although the video card is even not supported by the game). High-end Macs are really recommended. Don’t expect miracles on low-end Macs like my Intel HD Macbook Air which did tun the game, although barely in low settings. I even tested a multi-player game which ran just fine :). Enjoy!

Game Description:
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is the only multi-platform, first-person, modern shooter exclusively designed around the sniper experience. It takes the bulls-eye precision of its predecessor to new and exciting heights, offering more diverse sniper challenges; a rebuilt AI system and the thrilling “one shot, one kill” precision that made the original a huge hit, selling 3 million copies worldwide. Taking advantage of the advanced capabilities of the CryENGINE3, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 also delivers striking graphic environments.

Binary Domain for Mac

And another cool title has been ported: Binary Domain! The game is both added to Porting Kit and Crossover. I played/tested the games for about an hour without issues on as well my intel Iris iMac as on my Macbook air. The only thing you have to do as “extra” is to cancel the .net 3.5 install when asked on launch of the game. The speak commands are fun as well! Calling “regroup[” or “fire” or other commands to your companions, is quite fun!

Thrilling encounters with highly intelligent robotic enemies require you to think tactically, make challenging, real-time moral decisions and build up trust with your team mates in order to guide your squad to safety and success.

Dangerous Waters for Mac

Dangerous Waters has returned! I used to have a separate wrapper for this game, but now it is added to Crossover and Porting Kit. This game is another production of Sonalysts Combat Simulations, which also created Fleet command and 688(I) Hunter/Killer which are also ported in Porting Kit and Crossover. Command submarines and fleets and accomplish your missions like real strategists! The game is available cheap on Kinguin for only $6,88 at the moment.

Game description:
By assigning certain crew stations to be manned by the “virtual crewmen” the player can hand off various functions for the simulation to manage. This allows the player to tailor the game’s difficulty level to they’re liking and the precise level of involvement and micro management that they wish. The player could choose to monitor every single crew station himself or choose to just command the platform and to let the A.I. do the rest. Auto-crew control is dynamic so the player can enable or disable this feature for every crew station modeled in the game.
