Combat Mission: Shock Force - Mac OS X version announced!

Do you feel the itch to experience modern combat on your Mac?  Battlefront.com is announcing "Combat Mission: Shock Force - Mac edition"!
  Combat Mission: Shock Force is the critically acclaimed tactical  ground combat simulation of realistic modern 21st century warfare. Like  no other game before (or since), it allows you to simulate the full spectrum of modern ground warfare  in full 3D, in both real-time or turn-based play, solo or head-to-head  against internet, Email or LAN opponents. First released in 2007 for  Windows PCs, Combat Mission: Shock Force simulates a hypothetical  conventional ground campaign Syria between NATO and Syrian forces.

  This brand new Mac OS X edition of CM:SF is fully compatible with Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6 and up) and Mac OS X Lion  (10.7 and up). It includes the original base game pitching US Army  forces (centered around a Stryker Brigade Combat Team) against Syrian  Regular Army, as well as ALL THREE ADD-ON MODULES: Marines, British Forces and NATO, adding even more hardware from Great Britain, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, US, and Syria.

  Make no mistake, this is one HUGE bundle for as little as $45!   It containing hundreds (!) of scenarios and maps, hundreds (!) of  meticulously researched units and formations, almost a dozen full-blown  campaigns for several nations and much much more. Additionally,  countless scenarios and campaigns made by Windows gamers are seamlessly  compatible with the Mac version.  3am just-one-more-turn addiction  alert!! (you've been warned).

  For more details about the amazing amount of stuff that the base game and modules offer, follow these links:

  "Combat Mission: Shock Force - Mac Edition" will be available for  both download, mail delivery (disc and printed and digital game  manuals), and both (download AND mail), starting at $45 (plus S&H if  applicable) in 6-8 weeks. We will open pre-orders (for the mail&download option) in 1-2 weeks.

I was nearly going to say that looked like a shameless plug.

I have heard about Combat MIssions: Battle for Normandy. I have not played them, but it is suppsed to be great.

Interesting I guess? I've heard of them in passing on the PC but never bothered to look them up. Given the game's poor rating (critically at least) and looking at the site I'm not overly excited. Its also a 5 year old game, so that never helps. Company of Heroes is also 5 years old but still looks and plays great. I'm a bit skeptical about this one, would have to see a trailer or something.
