Installing The Sims 2 on a Mac computer requires opening the Mac App Store, purchasing the game and then installing the app. As of September 2014, the version available is The Sims 2 Super Collection, which includes a wide variety of downloadable content to go along with the game. Before purchasing, it is important to ensure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements for playing the game.
Apple has made it easy to download and install apps and games by putting together the same type of storefront available to iPad and iPhone users. The games and apps download immediately after purchase, and they automatically install as they are downloading. There are no special steps required to activate or initialize the program.
The Sims 2 is published by Aspyr Media, Inc. If there are any problems with the installation process, customer support is available through the Aspyr Media website, or by calling 1-512-708-8100 Monday through Friday (10a to 6p CST).
