SimCity for Mac is has arrived and much like the PC launch (which was a disaster) the launch isn't going terribly smoothly for many users, with user complaints ranging from installation issues to the game running only in a windowed mode. Put simply, SimCity for Mac is unplayable for some, and it's an unfortunate situation that's eerily reminiscent of its launch on the PC.
A Maxis spokesperson tells us that its live support team is actively working with players that've encountered trouble, and for what it's worth, installation of SimCity for Mac went off without a hitch on our end. In other words, don't lose hope; if you're looking to avoid potential frustration, however, you might want to give the developers a chance to iron out these launch day issues.
Update: Maxis has issued the following statement about the issues:
"We are pleased to advise that the installation-related issues some players experienced with SimCity on Mac have been resolved."
