    It's one of my favorite games but looking at the requirments sheet the processor speed is lower than the minimum spec.

    Mines a 1.7 and the minimum is 1.8. Will that have an effect on anything?

    I run it with no problems on my 2010 Air. I have it on Steam, not Mac App Store, but I don't think that would make a difference.

    That 1.8ghZ minimum spec was for a Pentium 4. Your CPU has about 10x the processing power of the best CPU available 10 years ago when that game came out. You'll be fine.

    This.
    CPU speed doesn't mean anything when comparing between processor generations.

    Really? Because Game Agent said my processor was too weak to handle it, but everything else was fine.


    Good then, I shall download it and play it.
