Lovely game, but even my eight core Mac Pro and 2011 15" MBP can not run it at max settings. Whereas the windows version runs great on a 5 year old system with Geforce 7800.

Ubisoft does very poor Mac ports. If they put just a little more time into these games people would be very happy.

Knowig the file was 7 Gb I wouldn't have bought it online. Too long, too big, too much bandwith. Maybe I missed the info or misread the specs but I havent seen it. Not clear enough for me anyway.

Yes it is.

With my 2 GHz Mac mini (2009), Geforce 9400, and 4 GB RAM, I have sometime stops and I had to change it to 800x600 resolution to be somehow playable, everyhting set to low (you have 3 options - low, medium and high settings), high quaility textures turned off and also no anti-aliasing.

You can press the Command+Enter to play in window (thats what I always do, since, the resolution is not that much).

For this cider port I recommend you, that you have a Geforce 8800 or better, to play it at decent framerates and at bigger resolutions. Also, the CPU is better, if it is more than 2 GHz.

Yes, I concur. On my 2.66 Ghz MBP unibody with 9600m GT the game is barely playable at 720p and medium settings. Long pauses when special effects load. This is in 10.5.

Yet the game runs very well in Boot Camp. :(

I am going to try 10.6 as the I have the upgrade disk.

1995 called, and it wants its ISDN line back.
I bought this and am d/l right now. It's a 7 GB - seven Gigabytes - download, and is coming my way at a very pedestrian 128 kB/s. 15 hours left, at 1/15 of my line's capacity. Come on, give me some bandwidth, I just *bought* a 7 GB game from you!

Prince of Persia... Built by the same award-winning Ubisoft Montreal studio that created Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia has been in development for over three years to deliver a whole new action-adventure gaming experience to consumers.

With a whole new Prince, storyline, open world environments, combat style, signature illustrative graphical style and the addition of Elika, a deadly new ally, Prince of Persia brings the franchise to new heights of deadly acrobatic, artistry.

Features:
  • A new hero emerges: Master the acrobatics, strategy and fighting tactics of the most agile warrior of all time. Grip fall down the face of a building, perform perfectly timed acrobatic combinations, and swing over canyons, buildings and anything that is reachable. This new rogue warrior must utilize all of his new skills, along with a whole new combat system, to battle Ahriman's corrupted lieutenants to heal the land from the dark Corruption and restore the light.
  • A new epic journey begins: Escape to experience the new fantasy world of ancient Persia. Masterful storytelling and sprawling environments will deliver to action-adventure fans an experience that rivals even the best Hollywood movies.
  • A new open world structure: A first for the Prince of Persia franchise - now you have the freedom to determine how the game evolves in this non-linear adventure. Players will decide how they unfold the storyline by choosing their path in the open-ended world.
  • Emergence of a deadly new ally: History's greatest ally is revealed in the form of Elika, a dynamic AI companion who joins the Prince in his fight to save the world. Gifted with magical powers, she interacts with the player in combat, acrobatics and puzzle-solving, enabling the Prince to reach new heights of deadly high-flying artistry through special duo acrobatic moves or devastating fighting combo attack.
