Purchased the Retina Macbook Pro, and tried to play Civilization 5 Gods Vs Kings and about a minute into the game the fan started going really fast and loud, and after about 10 mins into the game the bottom of the laptop was boiling hot. I searched in several forums and it seems that many people have the same problem when trying to play games. Is this normal? Its my first ever expirience with a mac and i will be really dissapointed if it cannot play games. I was thinking to start Guild Wars 2 aswell but if i will have the same problems i will not.


I will be very dissapointed if i cannot play games on this computer. One of the reasons i got the retina display was to be able to enjoy a few games in higher picture quality.

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
