I would personally say it's still enjoyable but with knowing you will get a few areas with some fps drop we state it is not supported so we cannot be charged with false promises. Best play on the side of caution.
Sorry, I did not meant it as criticism but rather I would be suprised if DX:HR ran on the HD3000 on the Mac, since gaming performance under Windows, DX9/10 is basically much better than with OpenGL on the Mac.
I run tons of slightly older games (Borderlands, Sanctum, Fallout NV, Mass Effect 3, Bioshock 2, DNF, Alice Madness Returns etc.) perfectly on the HD3000 but DX:HR and Metro 2033 are the breaking point, clearly. But I still have to say, for a lowlevel integrated chip I am much impressed how for good it performs.
