Summary: Couldn't give it 5/5 since it's not a native OS X port. Other than that, on current hardware it runs so well you don't notice any kind of performance hit from it running under a custom WINE wrapper. Plus, it's the original Dragon Age!
Summary: First, my machine specs: 2010 iMac 27" with 16GB of RAM OSX Mavericks 10.9.3 While the game does have some hiccups on Mac (mostly due to the TransGaming emulator), it runs remarkably well compared to other games I have seen ported from PC to Mac. There are some instances of instability - most notably a tendency to crash every time you enter the Lothering Chantry for the first time in the game - but it has been really stable otherwise.
Summary: There is some issue of RAM management, sudden termination, applying of battle system rule. Before you start this game, I recommend for you to read not only manual and game guide in user forum. This game is awesome!
Great Game, but look out for cheaper versions online.

Summary: I was about to buy this, but I saw DA:Origins Ultimate Edition for the same price online in another website. My advice is for you all to search for other cheaper versions of this game before buying from amazon. As for the game, it runs smoothly (on high settings) on my late 2013 iMac running OSX 10.9. If you love strategy RPGs, this is the game for you. The quests, interactions, and items are so varied that it never feels repetitive.
Summary: It's an enjoyable game, but doesn't have too much replay value. Since there aren't too many things that change from playthrough to playthrough, especially since the party system essentially causes you to have played as each class (if only vicariously), there's not much to do once you finish it.
Summary: Great game!!! Getting all of the DLC added a great deal to the gaming experience. Only gripe was that it took forever to download from the EA Origins service. As much as they try, They'll never be Steam. I guess their servers must have been tied up. At times my download speed dropped to Dial Up levels. Otherwise highly recommend for RPG fans. Thanks Amazon for great pricing!!!
