    Ah... Nostalgia... in HD!... Now available on Mac!

    Game was released 8 years ago, but graphics seem still good even by today's standards. Definitely going to buy this!

    $9.99 on the app store, and $8.99 on steam...

    Definitely getting this...

    "Tomb Raider Anniversary released for Mac"

    …again. :p

    It already has been released a few years ago on disc. The news is the download version on Steam and the MAS.

    Oooohhh. Didn't know that.

    Maybe I should visit game stores to see if they have the disc for $2-3.

    If you pay $80 to Apple, they will gladly provide you with a solution

    Umm, the old CD retail version, which Feral originally released back around ~ 2007-2008 probably does not work on current MacOSX Yosemite and ElCapitan.

    This current 2015 release by Feral specifically was updated to require at least 10.9.5 or later.

    For $9.95 on MAS I really can't complain. I just need to decide if I'd rather get this TR Anniversary 2015, or if TR Underworld (also on Steam and MAS) is a better game.

    I played Underworld in April, and I was rather underwhelmed. Puzzles were fun but the overall level designs somehow didn't give me the same mythical and mysterious tone the original TR did. Well at least that's what I expect from a TR game

    As for CD, it should work on my MBP with Snow Leopard :) or maybe on my iMac with ML

    I've been considering the entire TR bundle via Steam.

    Umm, it does, but it requires the DVD (too big for a CD) in the drive.

    Wonder if I can play this on my 2010 MBP with just the integrated intel graphic working. The dGPU is broken.

    I have played it on a Mac mini with a Intel GMA 950, and it worked quite well despite being officially not supported. So I guess you should be fine.

    Well, right now it's on sale at Steam. I just picked it up for mere 2.24 EUR. ;-)
