Apple Relives WWII - On the Mac
9:36 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Apple continues to show its support for the Mac gaming market with yet another gaming-related article. This most recent one, titled "Let the Battle Begin: WWII on the Mac," focuses on a slew of game that use WWII as their setting. WWII has always been a popular subject for mass entertainment, and Mac games are no exception to this rule. To prove this, Apple brings several titles into the limelight, including Warbirds III, World War II Online, Combat Mission and Fighter Squadron: Screamin’ Demons Over Europe.


Each title gets its due from Apple, though Warbirds III in particular gets the most real estate in the article. Warbirds III, supported by the i Entertainment Network, is an online massively-multiplayer flight simulation. World War II Online, by Cornered Rat Software, is an upcoming massively multiplayer FPS. Combat Mission, by Battlefront, is a 3D turn-based strategy title. Finally, MacPlay's own Fighter Squadron is a combat flight sim featuring over 90 missions and 10 different planes.


Apple's feature also contains screenshots of each title, as well as some words from each title's developers with various links of interest. For those interested in WWII gaming, the article is definitely worth a look.
