    Dear...

    You need to check the configuration of your Mac Book and requirements for the game.
    If the game requirements is not supported by your Mac book then don't try to install the games.

    if the game is supported by your mac book then check all your game files because then there might be some file missing in that.
    So check your game directory.

    Thanks

    Dear Friend...

    The game is crashed because the hardware requirements for playing this game is very high and this game required some excellent hardware configuration with HD resolution and 1 GB graphic card.



    If you have these, then you can play this game.
    A part from this, make sure that you must have at least 1 GB RAM and 5 GB Free Hard Disk space for installing this game.

    Thank you...
