Top 5 Shooting Games for Mac 2018

Shooting games are plenty, but they are quite a few for the Mac. However, this does not mean there are simply no good shooting games available for you to try on your Mac.

First person shooters (FPS) are immensely popular, so much so they can affect a platform’s success. Considering how the number of first person shooters available for Mac are not as much as they should be, the Apple device does suffer in this regard.

That being said, even though the Mac does not support the latest Battlefield or Call of Duty game, it still manages to offer some of the best first person shooters, which are as follows:

That being said, even though the Mac does not support the latest Battlefield or Call of Duty game, it still manages to offer some of the best first person shooters, which are as follows:

1. Deus Ex: Human Revolution

The game was released back in 2011 and it managed to offer an interesting take. This involved players making choices, a commodity quite rare to come across in the first person shooter genre.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was developed by Eidos Montreal, and was later ported to Mac by Feral Interactive. What is amazing about Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the fact that it is first person shooter that has fast paced action and stealth as well. You can deal with different situations the way you want to, rather than sticking to running and gunning.

Apart from the game’s offerings of different strategies, it is most notably going to be remembered for years to come due to its outstanding story. The single player campaign is so good, you will forget about the multiplayer mode entirely.

2. Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite is an experience unlike any other which should explain why it was awarded Mac Game of the Year Award back in 2013.

The game was finally ported to Mac by Aspyr, which was a must, seeing how amazing the story really is. Bioshock Infinite takes place in a different universe, Columbia, one which is far different from our very own. Without going into much details, the game also has one of the best endings.

The story alone puts Bioshock Infinite at the very top of any top 10 games list out there. The graphics and gameplay just as good as the story though. As for the shooting mechanics, they are solid to say the least.

When it comes to the game in general, there will be moments where you will stop and pause in order to admire the beauty of the game and all its visuals.

If you fear the game will not run in your Mac, then give the original Bioshock a try instead. You will not be disappointed.

3. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Borderlands has garnered an immense fan following, one that will keep coming back for more with each new installment.

Even though Borderlands 2 is amazing, the reason why it does not make it to this list is because Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel outdoes it in each and every way.

The game was brought to Mac by Aspyr, and proved to be quite popular due to its combination of role playing elements with first person shooter mechanics. Within the game you will not only kill, but you will loot to gain new skills and experience points.

New features for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel include new skill trees, new gear and low-gravity mechanics. It is safe to say there are enough features to keep you busy in the game’s bustling universe.

If that is not enough, the game also offers 4-players co-op, making the adventure even more exhilarating than it already is.

The game may be demanding on older Macs, but that is largely because the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel looks stunning.

4. Metro: Last Light Redux

The Metro franchise was known for its punishing gameplay and beautiful graphics. In fact, Metro: Last Light in particular was so demanding, it was used to benchmark gaming rigs, much like the Crysis franchise that came before.  However, the game was recently improved and enhanced for next generation consoles. The game looks better by leaps and bounds, as it is given new life in the form of Metro: Last Light Redux.

The game was developed by 4A Games, a Ukrainian developer, and is based on a series of novels with the same name. Once you get started, you will realize you are not in Houston anymore (sarcasm, obviously), but will need to survive in a post-apocalyptic Moscow.

As the name of the game implies, you will be fighting hordes of monsters (or mutants), through the metro system. Although, you will have a few missions where you to go above ground. When it comes to Last Light’s universe, it is immersive enough to keep you at the edge of your seat. Moreover, the game’s mechanics add to the experience, making it a frightening experience.

If you are tired of the same old multiplayer shooters, then this is the game you need to entertain yourself.

5. Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops is thrilling, full of action and often foul mouthed. The game has numerous single and multiplayer challenges, which should keep you entertained for hours on end.

You play as Alex Mason, a covert agent, sent to assassinate none other than Fidel Castro himself. However, you land in interrogation, where you have flashbacks of your adventures across the globe, with bigger and badder weapons.

The game will run on most Macs, but you still need to make sure your device meets the minimum requirements specified.

With the aforementioned shooting games to choose from, you will be able to kill time or procrastinate at work, whatever floats your boat. Rest assured, you will enjoy each and every moment spent playing said shooting games, as they have something unique to offer, making sure your experience is completely different each and every time.

It is time to use your Mac for much more than just work, and upgrade it to the ultimate shooting gaming machine.
