shalom israel

starcraft and diablo II are still two of the most popular games played on the internet, tho they have been out for nearly 10-15 years. They are both single or multi-player and anytime of the day you can find thousands of poeple playing.

starcraft is a real time strategy game with updates and thousands of different maps and scenarios to play.

Diablo II is a Role playing game that allows you to cooperatively play through an adventure with your friends. it's very fun.

i would highly recommend these two games because they are still very popular and will easily run without problem on a mini. also, they dont take up much space so you wont have to worry about filling your harddrive

I can get doom 3 working, but its slow with all settings down to low, it barely gets over 15fps... So I deleted it. Unreal tournament 2004 works well on medium settings/detail etc with just a few of the larger maps playing slow, for which adjusting to low detail/and lower 640 by 480 resolution solves this. 80% of the maps play ok in 800 by 600 on medium detail.

I have found with a USB joystick or BT one, the MINI becomes
an awesome emulator running system.
Nintendo 64, snes, genesis, atari, mame, all those games run
awesome.

Just got through playing zelda 2.
There are legalities though, you must own the cartridge and all
that.
heh.

Nice! It's good to see people using their Mini for retrogaming. I am constantly using it on my breaks at work playing NES or MAME games mainly. Check out ePSXe as well, you can run your PSOne games too!

I downloaded Bejeweled Twist and it works on my Mini 9. That's weird it doesn't work for you Holmes.
