Battlefield 1942 is a very popular WWII simulation game that allows both single and multiplayer action centered around 16 battle sites from the war. From Aspyr:
This download allows Mac users to run a Battlefield 1942 server that is dedicated to multiplayer, so they can use a spare Mac as a base machine to play alongside other friends. It enables support for more users in multiplayer than running a server on a Mac while playing Battlefield 1942.
