The fight to stop this extinction event has become the most important mission in the galaxy.It is your mission. As Commander Shepard of the SS Normandy, you will take your elite recon squad across a galaxy in turmoil, in a desperate race to stop the return of an enemy without mercy.

You must become the tip of the spear of humanity, for you alone know the full extent of what is at stake if you should fail.

I can't even get a constant 60 fps maxed at 1080p with my rig. I don't think it runs well with new hardware. I bought the trilogy, hopefully the other two are better.

I don't think you can, even on 800x600 with absolute minimums. My laptop doesn't get 30 fps with bare bones specs. Sorry man.

Yes I believe so but the game just runs like crap normally so make sure you give it some time when you test it out. ME2 and 3 are MUCH better running.
