Default [OSX|Dell Mini 9/10/10v] List of Games that are playable - 04-27-2010, 04:38 PM

All the other list are only about windows or linux. But i´m more interested in which games work with osx so i started to test every i found by now.
It would be great if you´d add more games.

Games i´ve tested so far:

A Vampyre Story

Game crashes after a few seconds.

Diablo + LoD
Just make image files of the cds (or the dvd) and mount them on your netbook (if you made mds/mdf files rename the .mdf to .iso and mount them via toaster).
Then run the install helper made by Blizzard.
After the installation is completed you can choose the highest options. You can even update the game!
Installer (for Diablo 2 and LoD)
Updater (separate versions for Diablo 2 and LoD)

GTA 2
Cider port. Everything works fine. Just don´t try to use the settings menu - game will crash.

Portal (Steam)
You´ll get an error that your graphic device isn supported.
Ignore the message and you'll be able to start the game, but its impossible to play: Graphic errors; Game will respond extremely slow.

Prey
Long loading times. Try different lower graphic opinions to make the game playable.
Only 800x600px are working on my mini10v. selecting 16:9 or 16:10 had no effect.

Prince of Persia - The Sand of Time
Ignore the "Your Graphic-Device isn't Supported" message and the game will run. Choose lower graphic opinions to make the game playable.
Sometimes the game will crash. Restart the game and a message will appear that asks you: "Do you want to use the Safe Mode?". Click yes and everything will work just fine.

Quake Live (Browsergame)
Works fine - bots tested

Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
Uncomfortable to play. Intro video produces errors.

Warsow
Works perfect with lower graphic options. (important: lighting = vertex)

World of Goo
Game works on every operating system (on every intel atom n270/gma950 based netbook) - osx is no exception.

XIII
Cutscenes dont work that well. Some will cause errors. The game itself works like a charm (lower graphic settings - no anti aliasing - sound errors).

List:
A Vampyre Story
Diablo + LoD

GTA 2*
Plants VS Zombies
Peggle Nights

Portal
Prey
Prince of Persia
Quake Live

Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2
Warsow
World of Goo

XIII
Zuma Revenge

Worked Perfect - Highest Settings
Worked Perfect - Lower Settings
Some Issues
Not Playable
Wont even start/Cause errors etc.

* Cyder Port

I know there is a steam thread, but just wanted to mention portal on steam does not run because of graphics.

Thanks for all the information provided. I've tried playing a few games but based on my experience it doesn't work so well. I guess I am expecting too much out of a netbook. I’ve tried playing warcraft on the netbook but it lags most of the time even with low graphics requirement. So adding another to your list, warcraft is not playable. But I’ve tried Svetlograd. It works absolutely normal, and occasionally you will be troubled by slow framerate.
