by Brian Gallagher

"Age of Empires 3" is a popular RTS (real-time strategy) game in which you lead a civilization through various time periods. The game is available for Mac OS X, meaning you can play the game on your Mac computer. Once you have determined that your computer can indeed play the game, installing the product is a simple process.

Check the system information on your Mac by clicking the apple and selecting "About This Mac." Note the processor type and speed as well as the amount of system memory.

Select "More Info..." and then select "Graphics/Displays" from the list of options on the side. Select your system graphics card (dedicated card if you are using switchable graphics) and note the chipset model and VRAM.

Navigate to the Apple "Age of Empires 3" demo page and compare your system specifications against those provided. If your specifications meet or exceed the requirements, you should be able to play the game.

Select the "Buy Now" link at the top of the page to purchase the game. You can also visit an Apple store in person (check to see if they have the game in stock) to purchase the game there.
