    I wish to play GTA San Andreas from the Mac App Store on my iMac (Late 2013 iMac 21.5'' with NVidia GeForce GT 750M 1Gb GDDR5). The last time the game was updated was around a year and a half ago, so it has not been updated to support Mavericks.

    My question is - with some of the reviews saying it doesn't run, has anyone got it on their Mac and is using Mavericks? If you could test out the game, that would be great :)

    Played it on two systems running Mavericks (10.9.1):
    - Mac Pro '08 with 7950 Mac Edition,
    - iMac late 2013 27" GTX 780M

    No problems!

    Thanks. What was the frame rate like on your iMac? With that GPU, you must be hitting 400fps :D

    Considering it was designed to run on a PlayStation 2 with whatever 4 MB eDRAM video card it had, I would expect it to run more smoothly than a hot knife through butter.

    Here are the PC system requirements... (nice stroll back memory lane :) )

    So... yeah... even with the OS X / Open GL-port penalty a new Mac should hit the 100 fps easily. :p

    Still is a fun game!

    Ah the days of slow GPUs, bad code, and beige PCs.
