    Did anyone already play the Mac OS X version? What is your impression?

    It certainly has high system requirements. The recommended configuration is a 680MX GPU and 16 gigs RAM.

    ok finally I have time to try this game....with my iMac using GTX675MX and video quality to 5 bars I found that my limit, beyond that it like slow motion :mad:

    yes this is a high system req spec game, maybe it need at least GTX680MX to play this game smoothly at native res with high quality video setting

    but anyway nice to see such this game on :apple: Mac really enjoy this moment :D

    Was that video quality "5 bars" meaning 5 bars out of 10?

    Also, what resolution were you playing the game at? I'm curious what settings it takes for it to run smoothly on that system.

    Sorry about "bars" yes there is 20 bars so its really minimum that my iMac just can handle 5 bars out of 20 bars

    I will test it on my MBPr but my prediction it will slow mo FPS :rolleyes:

    UPDATE :
    AMAZING with my MBPr Metro LL can run really smooth with video quality 14 bars out of 20 bars at native resolution !!!

    So it must be OS X 10.9 DP 7 that cause slow on my iMac because on my MBPr still use the latest stable 10.8.5

    so this is really great moments for we as Mac users, so many great games come to Mac based system this year :)

    Thanks for the info fireedo. I'm going to assume you had your iMac at native resolution for it to require the settings be that low.

    Just guessing but it sounds like some sort of decent compromise might be made between turning down resolution and turning up settings to find a happy medium somewhere.
