What does not
The game does not start.
What was not tested
Nothing past the start of the game could be tested.
I submitted a screenshot of the loading screen in OS X. It appears compressed to the top of the screen and has some bizarre coloration problems below that. I believe this is a problem with DirectX 9 in OS X. I have similar problems with mis-colored textures in Bioshock. Hardware-wise, I am using a Macbook Pro laptop. My video card is NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT; this setup is more than capable of running this game.

To change startup settings, right-click on the game in Steam, select

If you have multiple screens, you'll probably find that the game tries to stretch over all screens, instead of just one. In this case, you'll need these options:
