You do realise that typing “starcraft mac system requirements” in to google and hitting enter would take less time than posting this question, right?
here you go

That game came out 10 years ago. It will work. Unless your machine still has a motorola processor in it, it will work.

i downloaded it, but when i try to open it, it opens it in ms word. the program word opens, but theres no document. the extension is .sit. can anyone help?

Actually, the Mac version does need a PowerPC processor, and System 7.6 . You can get an installer for OS X, but I’m not sure that’s for Intel chips or not.

.sit stands for StuffIT archive (like a zip archive)
You can use the Stuffit Expander or The Unarchiver to decompress the archive

I prefer the unarchiver

Classic software doesn’t work, anymore. That said, I know for a fact that you can get an OS X version, because my friend has it on his Leopard-running Macbook Pro.

@Mtl zack; what exactly did you download? Some sort of trial?

i downloaded the demo from blizzard. i tried opening it, but its “classic” and wont open. where can i get this leopard version?

The demo is from the game’s launch 10 years ago. There is no demo, now. You can always order it direct from Blizzard!

SC 2 is coming out next year, and is going to be far better than SC 1.
I just felt obligated to say that

I have SC running on OS X intel. It works fine. You need to download in OS X installer and then install from CD. Just go down to your local game store and buy the CD and the expansion for $19.
