  1. Runs, but badly.
    by Ken Spiker, USA - Jan 27th 2017

    I can run it but at about 2 to 3 FPS. I've got a relatively new iMac which runs most games beautifully. Turning down graphic settings doesn't help. The game looks interesting and somebody put some work into it. They should fix it. I'm givning it 2 stars instead of one because it has potential.

  2. Unplayable, totally waste of money
    by niksu, Finland - Sep 26th 2014

    Cypress Inheritance sounds for a very good game - I bought it mainly cause realistic action/adventure RPG was exactly what I was looking for.

    Unfortunately, gameplay shatters and sound crackles the whole time - game is completely unplayable. Lowering quality doesn't help at all.

    My mac meets clearly minimum system requirements. There is something in this game why it did not work - regardless of the hardware. Many users have said this same thing in Steam too. My iMac Late 2012 runs many much heavier games without any issues, but playing this is a full disaster.

    The game itself has a lot of potential, but it does not matter if you can not even play it.

    In my case, purchase was full waste of money. Some have told this to work brilliantly. It would be nice to know where this large difference may be due to
