Going to have to disagree here. God of War ran under Parallels, but threw a "Needs Windows 10" error under CrossOver. The latter problem was fixable using some IDA Freeware 8.2 jiu jitsu found online. GOW under Parallels runs, but the frame rate makes it largely unplayable even on the lowest settings. CrossOver, once fixed, runs pretty well, although on the lowest settings. There is some stuttering, but it is playable, and it looks pretty good.
