Running a Windows 95/98 game on OS X?

I have a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MAc Book Pro with 4 GB memory. It runs OS X 10.5.7 and I was wondering if there was a way to get 'Sonic R', a PC game for Windows 95 or higher, to run on it?

You could try Crossover Games. It costs money, but there is a demo available at the developer, Codeweaver's, website. I have not personally tried this, but I have seen video of it working. Install it using the "Unsupported Application" option and set the bottle to Windows 98 mode.

Another alternative would be to try a VM like VMWare Fusion, Parallels Desktop, or the free VirtualBox. You may not have as much success with these programs, though, due to the game's 3D graphics.

Good luck!
