I'm a bit confused. With my current rig, I should be able to play this game flawlessly. My FPS is fine, but everything looks like ass even on ultra. Looks like complete crap. Any ideas?

I don't know how it is with AMD, but you should be able to access your graphics control panel. With Intel, you can set your card to have better performance or better quality. I'm assuming you should have a similar feature...

Just finishing my thought, haha. It worked for me on Far Cry 3, and Rome 2. The graphics were pretty horrendous until I switched it. Hope this helps, and just look around for something like that on your card:)

With my specs i get roughly 30fps on low medium graphics so you should be fine as long as not having HD isnt a issue for you.

That depends on your graphics settings. Higher unit detail should get rid of that 2d model problem. Though it may lag a lot more.

Your CPU/RAM is good, try running on very low settings, i get 30FPS on medium settings with my rig so you should be okay to run it on very lowest setting.

I was easily able to run this on Ultra settings and yet I was rated to only be able to run it in medium settings.

Weird, my system is rated better than yours and I can run it on high but not ultra. I thought the 610 was only entry level? Are you overclocked?
