Play a game where your choices really matter and where you affect the fate of individuals, communities, and entire kingdoms. Fight blood-thirsty monsters and navigate a web of schemes, lies, and political intrigue in one of the best looking games ever to come to Mac.

You are Geralt of Rivia, a witcher, a member of a mysterious caste of professional beast-slayers created through brutal training and mutation. Witchers specialize in tracking down and killing monsters. Long gone are the days when beasts lived near human settlements in every forest and cave, and the folk of the Northern Kingdoms held witchers in high regard. The age of elf and dwarf massacres has come, a time when men rival monsters in the evil they do, a time when mutated witchers are regarded as dangerous outcasts, neither human nor nonhuman. Amidst this chaos, Geralt is drawn into a bloody conspiracy. Accused of killing a king, the witcher embarks on a solitary quest to clear his name and uncover the mysteries of his past.

GAME FEATURES:
* One of the best RPGs to come to Mac – Award-winning story, graphics, and characters bring the game world to life.
* Brutal combat – Spectacular, tactical, dynamic combat gives you real time control of the action and sword-fighting.
* Vast, believable game world – Based on a best-selling series of novels, the setting is rich with mythology, rife with conflict, and ravaged by monsters and men alike.
* Stunning graphics – We promise you the best-looking game on Mac, and we mean it.

Running this on the most current, top of the line MacBook Pro 15” so you’d think it wouldn’t be an issue, but that’s not the case. I have to turn the settings to Low Spec and run at 1440x900 and even then the frame rates can be so poor it makes some of the fight sequences next to impossible. I’ve had to switch the game to Easy mode to simply get through some of the battles because the frame rates are so bad you have no chance of reacting appropriately or in time to get through it. If this weren’t the case this game would get a five stars hands down, for the story is very immersive, the main and side quests fun and engaging, and overall a solid action RPG. Personally I find it very annoying there is no “jump” action like most games have, space bar jump…I find myself trying to jump over small roots and annoyingly have to walk all the way around them when a simple “jump” ability would be much smoother. But then again, if I were able to smoothly jump over roots on the path there’s no way the frame rates would keep up with moving so elegantly so perhaps that’s for the better.

Good game, but a little hard to get through

Mysteryguitarguy

The game is a weird one. The RPG is beautiful, with some of the best graphics to date, but the technical issues, like framerate (even on recent hardware, its nearly impossible to run on higher settings), and convoluted story kind of bog the experience down. It’s best to play the first one, or read the novellas before trying to embark on this game’s quest because the story is so deep, to get the full impact, some background knowledge is needed. If you’re not at all going to pay attention to that, then the game is good, but not great.

Horrible Port

Rocco21

Running this game on Windows 7 through Bootcamp I can run it on High/Ultra settings with UberSampling turned off. I love Mac more than anything and am completely against Windows, but when it comes to gaming Mac gets it wrong. I can only run this game on Medium while running Mac OS and even then it feels a bit more sluggish. This is a game that shouldn't be taken in unless you can run it on High or above as it is gorgeous!

Also on the Mac version some of the keys cannot be remapped. This for me was an issue as the F5 quick save key constantly opens Launchpad and does not save the game. The quick save function for me will not remap. I have a R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse and while running it on the Mac version my Witcher 2 mouse profile will not work ingame. It works fine on the Windows version.

I'm running 10.8.2 and have not come across any of the "game not installing" or "game not running" issues. Although with the game defaulting to High settings on video from my computer's specs and only being able to barely handle medium, I would say something went wrong in this port. I for one am emailing Apple asking for a refund. Game was bought and downloaded yesterday, uninstalled a day later. I will continue to play it through Bootcamp.
