Despite criticisms on the capability of Apple computers to accommodate massive multiplayer online games, Mac supporters and users say that Macs are indeed compatible for such games. Mac users do have access to browser-based MMORPGs, but there are a number of developers who have taken the time to develop games that will not give Mac users any trouble playing. Here are ten MMO games for Mac that might help prove their point.
10. Savage 2- A Tortured Soul
Savage 2 was released in 2008 and runs on Mac OS X. The developer of the game is S2 Games and offers this game for free. This fantasy sci-fi game is a sequel to Savage: The Battle for Newerth. Savage 2 has real-time strategy requirements. It’s an action, first-person role playing game. You can choose to belong to either the Legion or Man or The Beast Horde.
9. Battlestar Galactica Online
Another browser-based game that Mac users can play for free is Battlestar Galactica Online. Battlestar Galactica is a famous science fiction series that became very popular on TV. The storyline of the game is an expanded account of a chapter that was featured in Season 2 of the television series. Two fleets are stranded somewhere in space and they need to fight each other for dominance as well as resources. The 3D graphics on this game is quite spectacular.
This game requires Adobe Flash Player and 3MB of hard drive space only. Published by Ankama Games, Dofus had become famous and its playerbase is huge despite the low quality graphics and the rather slow fight scenarios. But the cartoon-like graphics are very appealing. And the gameplay is complicated enough to keep people interested. A player can choose from 12 classes, each with its own specialized skill such as healing, fighting, casting spells, and summoning.
7. Clone Wars Adventures
Star Wars fans have one more online game to enjoy. Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures is a MMORPG that is true to the storyline and characters of the Cartoon Network series.

There are mini-games to explore and the visuals are at par with the expectations of fans.
6. Fallen Earth
Fallen Earth is set 100 years after Shiva, a plaque decimated 99% of the world’s population, a classless society exists. The survivors live in an area within the Grand Canyon and live a desperate existence. The game is in 3D and is primarily a real-time first person shooter game. One of the best features of the game is the huge number of missions that the player needs to complete (5, 500 missions).
5. Amped 2
The city of Wingdom soldiers, knights, heroes, and spies fight against each other. This MMO game is set in Wingdom. The graphics are low quality compared to others of its kind. A whole city is waiting to be explored and the game modes are varied enough to maintain gamers’ interest.
4. Fusion Fall

The main directive is to defend the world from aliens who are dead set in invading their world. Cartoon Network designed the game with Grigon Entertainment.
