    App Q&A testing by request.
    I suppose it's too much to hope there's a demo version you can download and test?

    ok no demo

    Q: Will there be a demo for the Mac version?
    A: There is no demo currently planned for the Mac version.

    i do not like this .

    how are you supposed to buy a game if you don't know if it will even run ...

    Once it's released I am sure EA will post the computer requirements on their website. Either that or wait for others to try first :D

    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0GHz or better
    OS: Snow Leopard 10.6.4
    Memory: 2GB RAM
    Hard Drive: 10GB HD Space
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA 9400M/ Intel HD3000
    Broadband Internet: Minimum 256 kbps download, 64 kbps upload

    yes but people are saying that the pc minimum requirements are way optimistic . i read that min reqs are just on paper .

    my specs are a bit above the minimum so i ''ll give it a try .
    except if other users report that it is too graphically intense .
    of course i 'm going to wait for other to try first :D
