    i've searched the net for the best freeware games for mac and here's what i've found and tested so far:

    OpenArena -- single/multiplayer mod of quake arena. fast and responsive.
    product page: http://openarena.ws/
    download page: http://files.filefront.com/OpenArena070j2dmg/;9003507;/fileinfo.html

    Nexuiz -- another quake arena clone.

    Battle for Wesnoth - very similar to Heroes 3

    Wormux -- quite good worms alternative.
