Recommend A Retina FPS?

Looking for something to show off this screen...I like sic-fi stuff, like Dead Space etc...Would like one game that will run on my new 13"rMBP...I know the HD4000 limits choice, but does anybody have any thoughts / suggestions?

Doom 3, Quake IV or Prey should run well with HD4000 in OS X.

Possibly even Rage.

If your goal is to run in retina resolution, then you are pretty much stuck with games made more than 4-5 years ago.
However at 1280x800 res you will run a lot of games.

The 13 inch features a whopping 1600p res, which kinda need the best cards on the market (for desktops) is SLI/XFire configuration.

The Intel HD 4000 is quite ok, and will run many games, just not at full retina resolution.

Yep, I already own Doom for Mac, and I am pleasantly surprised at just how well the HD 4000 copes with it...It's an old game, and I didn't buy the MBP for games, but it flies in DOOM3...Overall, I am hugely impressed with my new Mac.

Borderlands 2 is pretty cool, and I still love Unreal Tournament 2004.. and it'll run at full resolution and graphics easy in OSX
