A lot of people are unsatisfied with the performance. The question is: are you going to buy it as is? Personally, from what I'm hearing I wouldn't buy it even if I had the hardware to run it. At any given hardware level the consensus seems to be that it should be running considerably better than it is. So buying it is basically supporting a crappy port and saying "just throw us your breadcrumbs, we're desperate!" IMO, but that's just me. I don't have friends I want to play this at. Then again, I'm still looking forward to running Diablo II at 800x600 and 32 bit without lag on b.net. When that happens I won't care about anything except Blizzard products until Doom 3 comes out anyway. That's just my personal disclosure.
