Parallels Compatible Gaming



I just updated my parallels installation to try out some games.As my previous post trying to compile a list of games compatible to the Intel 945/950 gml motherboard is hot, i would like to follow it up with a compilation of games that run well on parallels emulation.The initial list on the Parallels site is encouraging, but i would still like to see more.It is a bit limiting when considering that Parallels is compatible with only DirectX 8.1 games so would have problems with most new games.Yet i am sure after reading the comments on my previous post that there’s more than what meets the eye.So people if you have a game working fine on Parallels please feel free to add it in the comments – would be very helpful for avid gamers who are on a Mac 😉 (what an oxymoron that was..!)

List of games that Parallels says is completely compatible :

  • Alien Arena 2007
  • Baldur’s Gate 2
  • Bus Driver
  • Call of Duty
  • Counter Strike 1.6
  • Descent 3

  • Neverball
  • Prey
  • Quake 1 GL
  • Quake 2
