From the Aspyr page:
Requirements

• Video Card (ATI): Radeon 9600
• Video Card (NVidia): GeForce 6600

NOTICE: Intel integrated video chipsets are not supported.

Just wanted to let anyone with a MacBook know that the full game runs fine with the settings turned down a bit.

Intel integrated graphics chipsets are not locked out in any way. The game does not refuse to run, even with the integrated graphics.

It's got an interesting storyline, and some great ideas and effects. There's no reason not to at least try the demo.
I'm hoping multiplayer is just as fun.

Personally, i don't know why this game was ported. It's a below average game and there are tons of other great games to be ported to mac.

This game is amazing. The description you guys put for it could change though, that is the only thing that's wrong with this.

Personally, I think this game has out done Doom 3 and the features of it have never been done before. I will be buying it tomorrow.

"Extremely violent shoot-em-up game"? That's the only thing you guys could come up with about this game... shame...

Ok fair enough... How would you sum up this game? What would be your short description for this app? I'll be happy to change it if you come up with a better.

Perhaps "Innovative shooter with spiritual twist"? I would just prefer a less negative tag, that's all.

I didn't write the short description so I have no personal issue here whatsoever but given this warning which appears on the MU product page for this app, I'd say your short description is too mild:

"Warning: This game has Blood and Gore, Intense Violence. Partial Nudity and Strong Language."

This is a 'family site', so to speak, so some warning should be indicated. Still open to suggestions here.

Since that's already in the description, is it really necessary to have such strong wording in the tag? I mean, it's only one line, and that's not what the game is about. I played the demo on Xbox (assuming that it is the same, just the start of the game), and from what I remember quite a lot of it is buildup, with the emphasis on puzzles rather than over the top gory violence.

I hear you, totally. But I am at a loss for a better, call me unimaginative but presently my brain can't spit out a better.

If you have one that fits the parameter of being a warning as well as being descriptive overall, hit me with it. I'm all ears/eyes.

Fair enough then. How about just "Violent shootemup with spirit world twist"?

Even Aspyr Media makes you put in your birth date before viewing the product info page for this game on their site. So I think it's probably a good idea to highlight this on MacUpdate's site as well.

AND we're hosting the demo for you on our own servers. You're welcome. ;)

Demo ran very well on my Intel Core Duo 2 iMac and is a long enough demo to get a feel for the game. Quite fun, but the enemy AI seems a bit dumb.
