I recently bought this product for my son to play on his lap top, which is a year old with Windows 7 home premium, 4GB of ram, 640GB hard drive. After much soul searching regarding game content I purchased it having read and watched various reviews. On receipt of the game, we could not get it to play on either the laptop or on our more powerful desktop. It turns out that while our systems are more than adequate, the standard Intel HD graphics card is not - the internet forums are quite clear on this when you research the DirectX error code 15. I have wasted a reasonable amount of time working this out and trying the game on both machines. Why do retailers not give you the minimum graphics card requirements in their advertisements. Thoroughly disillusioned my son now wants to return the game to the supplier - be warned.
