If that is the most recent mac mini with the HD4000 then it should be able to play the game.

The game scales really well and looks better than it does on consoles even on low settings.

Here is a video for reference, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dZCvs9w02g

That guy is using a desktop i7 so will have better performance for you but he is using the integrated intel GPU

In that case you will have no problems running the game on low settings at any reasonable resolution, that GPU is better slightly than the intel one so you should be good.
