Man, This game has good optimization according to gamer feedback results. You meet minimum but do not meet recommended requirements because of your gpu so i think low settings light aa at 720p should be fine. Upgrade your gpu

My friend said this was the worst optimized game ever and no one could run it smoothly so I bought it to show him it was just his computer and not the devs fault.
