Runs fine for me
This game was so cheap that I had to give it a try, despite the poor reviews. So far, I’ve had no problems running it on a 5,1 quad core Mac Pro with Radeon 7870, so I’m not sure if some folks just don’t have the power to run this as the developer says (a little odd for a game that I recall playing on single core systems running Windows XP). For those that are complaining about graphical quality, that needs to be adjusted accordingly in game. Despite my more-than-adequate system, the game defaulted to a lesser resolution. Once corrected, my system has no trouble playing the game at 1080P with all the quality settings maxed out. I’ve played it for over an hour with no crashes or slowdowns, and it looks exactly like the Windows version that I wasted absurd amounts of time playing when this game first came out. Game data appears to be saved in your User folder, it’s just hidden a few layers down.
Thanks for the memories and another reason not to dual boot!
Launching Issues FIX
I was weary to download this because of the price and the repeated reviews saying that the game would not launch. My greatest fear came true when I attempted to launch for the first time and it failed. However, by going into the game settings from the launch window, if you select one of the different aspect ratios for your screen, the game will launch and run just fine.
As for the game itself, it is a timeless city running simulation. While the graphics haven’t held up too well to today’s standards, the gameplay is overall intuitive and addicting. SimCity is a classic game that is certainly worth the high price. Additionally, it is worth noting that many of the major glitches I had encountered playing this game as a child seem to be corrected. Overall great game.
Made me smile`
After having owned and played SimCity 2000, 3000, and 4, I’m quite attached to my SimCity series! I keep a PowerBook G3 around just to play SC 2000 natively. I was about to install Windows on my MBPr, but then I noticed one day SC4 is here in the app store! So, I purchased it and launched it…to find myself immersed in wonderful, original gameplay. Un-aged! It plays flawlessly on my Late 2013 MBPr 15”. It was $20 well spent! I’m so glad they brought this game into the Intel Mac world so gracefully. I haven’t noticed anything to complain about! I spend hours in this game. However, those of you who like trainers to cheat, I’m not sure you’ll have an easy time finding those for this version of SC4 on Intel Macintoshes. I haven’t tried, but it just came to mind.
