Torchlight and Civilization 4: Colonization in Mac OSX – Screenshots

Downloading some more games on to Mac OSX via Steam was all I did last night – figured since I was so excited about it, might as well try some more games. I downloaded two games I already owned on Windows – Torchlight and Civilization 4: Colonization – and gave them a try.

As with Portal, the results leave something to be desired. It seems like the ports just aren’t that great, and makes me wish for the future where developers simultaneously code for OSX and Windows at the same time. Then we could get a comparable experience. But for some reason I get the same framerate running Portal on high settings in OSX that I do running Crysis in medium settings in Windows. The Mac could be a viable gaming platform if the developers just tried.

Anyway, here are some screenshots. Torchlight ran perfectly, but Colonization occasionally chugged when there were a lot of things happening on the screen. Both games were maxed out.
