The graphics card in your iMac is one level below the required specs for Mac. You should still be able to play though if you are willing to set a low resolution and turn off all the fancies. Alternately you can play it in bootcamp Windows on the iMac, and in that case your card does meet the minimum specs. Either way it will run, but it won't be as pretty as it should be.

Yes. That's hat my desktop is and it works just fine. I run moderately high graphics settings as well. Just downlload the Mac version. That's all you need to do.


By the way, for all of you that think The mac version couldn't match up to the PC version, it does. Higher graphics settings and all. I run a pc laptop, an xbox 360 and the exact same iMac system described above and it looks and plays the same on all three.

Just get the mac version for the mac and forget all double booting BS. You don't need it.
