There is a lot of bad reviews on here. However, I am running at 50FPS. The graphics are great and I have no problems whatsoever with running this game. You have to make sure that you have at least the minimum requirements to run the game. Then go into your settings on the game and slowly increase the settings for the video section. It is what I did, I run at 50 FPS which is great and also have high detail settings for the graphics. I run with a MacBook Pro. It has everything the game needs plus more. It is very important that you look at what your mac has to offer in terms of performance before you get the game. If you don’t have the minimums don’t bother. I have a 2016 macbook. I am not sure of all the extras this computer has but I am almost maxed out in terms of settings for this game and it runs so smooth its not funny, I was very happy I have had none of the problems in the other reviews. And a side note, if you do have the minimums which are listed in this page, the game is almost on the same level or better for the xbox 360. I have this game for the 360 and the settings I have it on is as good or better in terms of graphics and smoothness as the 360. I am still in trial phase, but I am also still putting the settings to the max the game allows. I have not been able to hit the cap of the computers ability just the cap of the game.
I sugest that you 1 make sure you have the minimums or better, and 2, then play with your settings in game to make your experience the best possible. I don’t think that most people know what their computer is capable of and just download an app. Make sure your computer can handle the minimums, then download the app and play with the in game settings. I cannot stress that more.
I am going to update this as I go and test the maximum settings this computer is capable of, so I will keep updating you as I go. I will update you if I have any issues but right now I have none.

Great Game, bad version

Don’t buy from Apple store. I can’t even play the game anymore. It just crashes on startup

Sorry to see you are having issues with Borderlands 2.
Make sure your Mac meets the minimum system requirements to play the game. We see a lot of issues on machines that are not powerful enough to run the game.
If you meet all system requirements, please contact our support site so we can look into this issue.
