Mac FAKK2 in Beta
11:44 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Contraband Entertainment's Andrew Meggs has made an interesting post to Usenet concerning his work on the Mac port of Ritual latest title, Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2. In his post, he notes the game has reached the beta testing phase and is just getting up to speed with various 3D cards and mice. Here's his post:

GameCenter says: "9/10... Fantastic graphics; wonderful combat; good mix
of action and exploration... Quite possibly the best action-adventure
game you're going to play this year."

Gamespy says: "FAKK2 is absolutely gorgeous. Ritual's crew of level
designers are well known in the industry, and with good reason. The
architecture is terrific, and the environments are varied and intricate."

Andrew says: "The Mac version is beta. Most of the remaining work is to
ensure compatibility across various 3D cards and third-party mice."

This is great news for Mac gamers, who could see this just-released PC game very soon now. We've talked with Meggs before, and he has notes the longest delays will likely come from the publishing end of things. We'll keep you posted as FAKK2 nears release.
