    This is a short review for all of you that are interested on Fifa 13 running on a 15 inch rMBP.

    I run it via Bootcamp with Win7, downloaded Fifa via Origin. I have played Fifa constantly for a few months now and totally have no regrets.

    I play it at 1920x1080 at Highest settings, Anti aliasing, vsync and lock the fps to 60fps. When I first tried it, I expected it to lag, as I have heard that Macs arent made for gaming or that you shouldnt bother playing games on Macs. But all my doubts vanished as soon as I started playing. Its as good as a PS3 or Xbox, if not better.

    Online gaming via Wifi was no issue although lags do occur if you have a bad wifi signal. I installed fraps to see the fps and they stayed at 60fps all the time. I do 6 hour sessions on weekends and this machine holds up like a boss.

    Gaming on a rMBP p, Yay or Nay..
    Definitely Yay.

    Thats it for my review, turned out to be quite long :p

    The rMBP has an Nvidia 650m card, which is essentially the 660m. The 660m is more than capable of gaming. Anything designed for PS3/Xbox 360 should easily run on the Mac, while beating the console counterparts handily.

    At the moment I'm playing Assassin's Creed II at 1920x1200 with 8x anti-aliasing and 16x antisotropic filtering at 60fps.

    Wait... you bought a 2000$ machine but you did not expect it to handle FIFA? What did you expect it to handle than? Facebook?

    Facebook and Twitter in high-res up to 60 posts per second. Well worth the $2000+

    Ehm. I was just saying how my experience was? Is it really that bad. I never mentioned that I expected anything from this machine.

    I was just writing my personal opinions on the Mac.
