Best Game for iMac - I run a Late 2009 21.5 inch iMac with a NVIDIA 9400 graphics card, and this game runs great. After other dissapointments with Feral Interactive not supporting the NVIDIA graphics card, this game was a real pick-me-up. It runs smoother than I've seen on most PCs, and on higher settings. I would suggest this game to anyone who has a Mac. Thanks, Feral Interactive!
Waste of money - Wish I could get my money back for this. Should have played a demo or something first. All I do it pick up guns that won't kill any of the bad guys, constantly REKILL all the people I just killed, and buy more junk. And why does every bad guy know EXACTLY where I'm at the entire game? Skip this garbage and buy something else from the app store. Waste of $30.

Fun game if I still had my character... - It's a great game, I had some lag which got really annoying after a while but the new update seemed to deal with that. Only problem is I spent several hours working on a character I no longer have. And as much fun as those first few levels were I'm not looking foreward to having to redo them. Not sure what went wrong but I'd really like my character back.
Great game, however multiplayer has been poorly implemented. - As someone who also played this extensively on the PC side, the multiplayer setup on the mac side is very cumbersome. You download an application from a third party (gameranger) which handles hosting. This means everytime you want to play a multiplayer game, you exit borderlands, and launch gameranger instead, which means everytime you have a problem hosting, you have to exit, adjust settings, and relaunch the game. Worst of all, if you would like to chat with the people you are playing with, you have to pay for a 'premium' account through gameranger. On top of that, I've found the service to be rather spotty (today I spent an hour trying to join a game, launching borderlands, and continuously timing out). So if you're buying this game to play with friends, keep this in mind! The actual game itself is a lot of fun. Very nice visuals (UDK engine with a touch of cell shading), with some very cool open world design. Occasionaly I find myself stopping and staring at the horizon, allowing myself to travel to the location I can barely see in the distance. There are some nice atmospheric effects as well to acheive the scope of the game. This game of the year edition really has a ton of content to play through, and the randomly generated weapon system is rather addicting. I'm glad feral brought this game to mac, however the multiplayer experience (one of the best aspects of the game) has been somewhat ruined.
Awesome game! - I am running the game flawlessly with high graphics on my MBP Late 2011 1 GB AMD graphics and 8 GB RAM. This is easily one of the best games I have ever played. With all of the guns, and the high replayability factor, you will spend hours non stop playing it. Another smash hit from 2K Games and Gearbox.
buggy update - just updated this game again this week, after i had fixed the lost characters issue, the newest update (8.8.12) reverted my characters back to lower levels. please figure this stuff out before posting updates!!! what a joke...
A great game that can be optimized for lower devices - Borderlands is an awesome game though it can make your make you macbook REALLY hot if you don’t make a couple of changes. To run the game optimally on a 2014 Macbook Air with a 1.4 GHz processor, 4 GBs of Ram and 1.5 GB graphics card, I had to limit the framerate to 30 frames per second and disable some features through the .ini files. To access these files, open the start-up page for Borderlands, click advance settings and open the game files, click the folder MacInit and you will have access to the .ini files! By limiting the frames per second and adjusting the settings with the help of a Lag Fix guides online, the game now runs on high settings without overheating. I think Borderlands 2 preformed better, but this game doesn’t run too bad either. Overall, I think Borderlands is a great game, though I kind of preffered Borderlands 2. Both NPC and playable characters are ok in this game, but not particularly great and the enviorements aren’t as diverse. The desert design is pretty cool though! It makes me feel like a Lone Ranger in the wild west! $30 isn’t a bad price for this game considering it includes the DLC, but you may want to hold out for a sale. At $10, this game was a steal! [Warning: If you plan on tweaking the game, make sure to create a backup of the old .ini files just in case :) ]
