    The games pretty old. It should run just fine.

    If you're curious, this is the system requirements.

    Intel Core 2 Duo CPU
    1 GB RAM
    9 GB hard disk space
    ATI X1600, NVIDIA 7300GT or Intel X3100 graphics card
    Mac OS X 10.5.8

    Does it get warm when you're running the game?

    slightly warm. Remember this is core 2 duo 1.4 ghz, very much a slower and less capable processor than the sandy bridge ones, which from what I'm reading, tend to get hotter

    I bought Vice City when it came out and intended to buy San Andread but.....
    I dont like how it soesnt work with Lion, you can't switch between windows. Hopefully this gets updated one day.. Other than that, Vice City runs better than it did on my PS2 years ago
