The iMacs released in late 2009 are simply the best machines I have seen for Mac gaming. Once Aspyr got the Core 2 Duo 3.0 GHZ iMac and the i5 Quad Core iMac we immediately went through our vast catalog of games to see how they would perform. The results we got have been nothing short of amazing and lots of fun. The new iMac screens are ultra crisp and even “old” games look amazing. Performance wise the Quad-Core iMac hands down is the top of the chain for gaming on the Mac. I can attest to playing our latest title, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition Mac, with the resolution all the way up really is a beautiful experience to behold and tons of fun. The introduction of this machine means you really can get the most out of that Mac game catalog you’ve been growing over the years.
If you haven’t had the chance to move over to the newest hardware there is still lots of opportunity for some fun gaming, and with retro being “in” even more will be coming back to the surface. Hopefully this brings up fond memories to those of you that have been avid Mac gamers for as long as we have!
