TransGaming Brings Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening to Mac

| Games

TransGaming, Inc. announced Tuesday the release of Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening for the Mac. The title is an expansion pack for the Dragon Age series, a “dark fantasy” role playing game.

This expansion sets the player in the role of a Grey Warden trying to rebuild the order of the same name, and it takes place after the events that transpire in Dragon Age: Origins. The player must travel to Vigil’s Keep, recruiting characters along the way to join the order.

The expansion is priced at US$29.95, and it requires either Dragon Age: Origins Standard Edition (Mac) ($29.95) or Dragon Age: Origins Deluxe Edition (Mac) ($39.95).

Transgaming is junk! Fantastic concept and not a bad implementation, but another layer between the windows execution code and the mac hardware.  If you open the package content, there is listed a c_drive and a p_drive with all of the windows ‘default’ folders.  The folders are empty.  Also, Transgaming uses the WINE engine to make this all work; that is also under the package content.  I appreciate the effort it took to do this, but it is a windows emulator running a windows built game for Mac.  Frustrating, slow, and crashes.  Lego Universe for Mac is another lousy Transgaming implementation of a windows written game for the Mac.  I recomend against getting this game for the Mac; you will be disappointed.  However, a bootcamp solution is probably the better way to go.
