Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed, the ruthlessly unforgiving tactical shooter experience. Unofficial expansion pack for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon with 150+ maps, 250+ weapons, tons of new content, packed with ass-kicking realism and countless other gameplay improvements. Maybe it's time to revisit the King of tactical shooters!
Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and later versions no longer support running legacy applications like Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. A simple solution to play Ghost Recon on modern Macs is to use the PC version of the game inside a Wineskin Winery wrapper that acts as a normal Mac app and provides full compatibility.

Ghost Recon on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) / 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
As this comes up more and more often now, I figured it might be worth a separate topic. Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and later versions do not support running legacy applications like Ghost Recon anymore. A simple solution to play GR on modern Macs is to use the PC version of the game inside a Wineskin Winery wrapper that acts as a normal Mac app and provides full compatibility with the PC version of Ghost Recon (including expansions, mods, online/LAN multiplayer etc.).
I've prepared an empty wrapper that is fully SP/MP compatible and even allows all intro/outro video to be played. Just download, expand the archive, double-click the app and install GR either from its original setup.exe or by just copying the "Red Storm Entertainment" folder from a PC to the "Program Files" folder on the virtual C: drive inside the wrapper.
It's basically the same for installing a mod. For manual (drag and drop) installation, right-click the wrapper, select "Show Package Contents", navigate to "drive c:/Program Files/Red Storm Entertainment/Ghost Recon/Mods", drop the mod into this folder and activate it in the game's options menu. Alternatively, you can use a mod's installer executable (.exe). Right-click the wrapper, select "Show Package Contents", double-click the Wineskin icon, and click the "Install Software" button.
In conclusion, this is really neat - the Wineskin wrapper weighs in at just under 20MB now and allows to install the PC version of Ghost Recon (including expansions and mods for PC) on any modern Mac, fully cross-platform compatible with feature parity! The performance is absolutely on par with the native version too, i.e. I see no performance degradation when using the wrapper on my Mac compared to a native GR install on my PC.
A cool little side-effect of this wrapper is that all Ghost Recon mods for PC are suddenly fully Mac compatible!
Enjoy Ghost Recon (and mods) for PC on Mac!
