I want to know what kind of games can I play with my MacBook Pro before I purchase them. Can I play something beyond Bejeweled? Type of games that I am interested in playing:

  • Call of Duty
  • Counter Strike Source
  • Civilization
  • Note that some MacBook Pros also have a 9600M GT graphics card. You can find out if yours does by going to Energy Saver in System Preferences and checking for a group of bubbles that gives you a choice between "Better Battery Life" and "Higher Performance". – spudwaffle Jun 12 '12 at 8:00

I have a 5,2 MacBook with that Nvidia chip. Being the Civ fan that I am, I used to Bootcamp and try to play Civ IV: BTS but it wasn't pretty. I suppose if you turned the graphics settings way down to the minimum you may have some luck.

Civ V. No hope at all.

  • No worries mate. – boehj Mar 27 '11 at 5:04

Counter Strike Source will have little to no trouble because the Source Engine relies more on the CPU than GPU.


I had crysis, and crysis 2 running, with playable FPS. Crank down the resolution.
