blurb for game says minimum processor is pentium.Im on a laptop & thinking of buying this game.Laptop has an intel core 2 duo processor (T6400) & is rated at 2 gig clock speed.Will this game run on my machine??Not worried by online gaming performance,as im on a mobile internet connection with a crap signal & transfer rate,so dont intend to try to play online.

Depends on your graphics card. It'll probably run - but not very well.

Thanks for that.Well checked my system spec & in terms of required ram & available hard disk space my system has well in excess of what the game requires.However my graphics card isnt ati radion or nvidia only an intel. A mobile intel GMA 4500MHD with upto 1340 mb total available graphics memory with my machines 4gb system memory (shared memory type) to be precise.Is this sufficient to run this game??Ive run other games with quite sophisticated graphics on my laptop & apart from windows compatibility issues (games designed for & supported on windows 98 but run on vista) theyve worked & looked fine.So has anyone got any further thoughts on my original question??Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

The on board GPU you have will struggle at best and will probably not run the game.

I have an 8400M GT on my laptop with a slower processor than yours (1.83 core2duo) and only 3gb ram and the game plays fine on lower settings. So the only thing thats holding you back is going to be the graphics processor, you could try but I wouldn't be optimistic.

I have XP with AMD Athlon 64 4000+ (2.4 MHz) single core. 3GB RAM & Nvidia 6600GT Now 5 years old. Is this spec adequate?

Hi Gordon
You should be able to run the game on low settings but not any higher.

guys the easiest way to find out if you can play this game is to go to and test your machine out on their game tester!!

Bit late, but you need a connection to play single player mode (STEAM) so not only to verify account, you will need to download new patches etc before you can play, loose connection with (STEAM) will stop play!

Anyone wanting self pc spec analysing need look no further. Just allow short install and press run now. Collates your pc performance for selected games.

Would this game run on Boot Camp windows, running on a Mac OS X. I have the intel core 2 duo processor (which could probably cope) and a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics card (which should run it fine).
Anyone with any Boot Camp gaming knowledge??

What matters is : are you running 64 bit or 32 bit versions of Windows. Too many comments from people who just want to brag about their own systems and ridicule other peoples systems. ALL GAME SELLERS omit the one crucial fact. You cannot run a 32 bit game on a 64 bit system. Activision admit that fact now but it is not prominantly displayed. Amazon could set a new standard by including that infromation too. Simply stating that a game will run on Vista (for example) is not good enough. They should define if it is 32 bit or 64 bit compatible. The discussion forum would then not contain so much nonesense and people would also begin to appreciate Amazon as a fair and honest game supplier.
