Anyone given this a try on the MBA? I'm curious to hear how well it performs, especially on the 2012 models.

I imagine the only practical way to run it s via bootcamp.

From my own experience I can tell you that FIFA 13 runs great on the MBA 13" 2012, even from Wineskin. I didn't tried to run it from Bootcamp, 'cause I didn't want to waste space of my SSD just for playing games, but if Wineskin can move it so greatly, I can figure that running Windows natively should be even better.

I'm running it with the following graphical configuration:
  • [Resolution: 1440x900 (native)
  • Rendering quality: High
  • MSAA Options: Off (it runs also at good speed if you choose both 2x or 4x, but with Off setting it is even more fluid)
  • Frame rate: Lock to 60 fps
  • Rendering options: Wait for Vsync | Disable Windows Aero theme

PS: There is no support for Origin-DRM on Wine, so if you want to play online, you should install it via Bootcamp.
PS2: If you want to know how to create a Wineskin wrapper for FIFA 13, go to this site

This is great info, especially because I didn't reckon my 2012 MBA would run it on high settings or native res. Tempts me into buying the game. Thanks!
