Half-Life 2 on Intel Macs

If you've sated your Tetris lust through Quinn and you're looking for something a little meatier to play, you might want to check out this kludge a CodeWeavers forumite has used to get Half-Life 2 running on an Intel Mac.

Armed with the beta of CrossOver Mac, user JustinD downloaded Gordon Freeman's alien-blasting adventure through Valve's Steam service and proceeded to shoehorn it onto his MacBook. It isn't pretty since you can't use anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering, and there's pop-in, missing video, and other surprises, but, hey, it's Half-Life 2 on your MacBook.

I don't have an Intel Mac lying around to try this out, so hit the comments if you get it working.
