Sudden Strike 3 for Mac

The past few days we have ported Sudden Strike Gold and Sudden Strike 2 Gold, and now Sudden Strike 3 as well! Sudden Strike 3 from GOG.com contains 2 separate games: “Sudden Strike 3 – The Last Stand” and “Sudden Strike 3 Arms for Victory“. Both games are now added to Porting Kit! I tested both games and while Arms for Victory works perfectly on my low-end Macbook air, I found in The last Stand a small bug which causes no “voice sound”  in the briefing. Sounds in-game works just fine. Have fun!
