The Mac Observer has posted a preview of the upcoming Mac version of Call of Duty 2 from Aspyr Media. Based on a beta version of the World War II first person shooter, the preview examines what the final product will offer eager gamers.

Here we are two years later, and Call of Duty 2 is on the cusp of release for the Mac. (The Windows version has been available since last October.) I played the Beta on a 20-inch 2GHz Intel Core Duo iMac that had been upgraded with 1GB of RAM and the 256MB version of the ATI Radeon X1600 video card.

Infinity Ward doesn't use GameSpy for the multiplayer side, preferring instead to use its own technology, so you'll be able to play against other gamers all over the world. You won't be limited to direct IP, LAN or GameRanger-only action, as you are with Star Wars Battlefront and other titles that use GameSpy on the PC side. The company unfortunately jacked up the licensing fees it charges Mac publishers, forcing them to drop the technology for most of their releases.

Call of Duty 2 is scheduled to ship at the end of this month and is currently available for preorder at
