It's not exactly your average walk through the garden. Soldiers that you've had through the entire play-through will most likely die and you'll be frustrated. But that's what makes the game interesting!

Try disabling Anti Aliasing and/or Vertical Sync and/or Physx (if it has that option), do this on either in game or your GPU settings.

I get about 20FPS on low (15-25FPS generally, though more often at the higher end of that). Still playable for a turn-based game despite being well below minimum spec, though obviously not ideal. I'd say go ahead if you have similar specs.
