    First of all, the problem that I'm experiencing with the benchmark score of 450 or so and I am not sure why. I was able to install the game no problem; even viewed the movie intro and created a character. I experienced the problem when I was in control of my character. Everything began flickering. Here are my specs:

    Mac Pro:
    2 6-Core Intel Xeon @ 2.66 GHz
    8 GB RAM
    2 ATI Radeon HD 5770

    I'm also using Parallels Desktop 6 and running Windows 7 64-bit.
    I've also updated my drivers/have ATI Catalyst + using Directx 11.

    Any suggestions? Like I said, my benchmark score was around 450 and I've searched through various forums but I can't seem to find an answer. Any help would necessitate much gratitude If I need to elaborate more, I will.

    Lol its because you're using parallels. Youll HAVE to use bootcamp for any modern gaming. Parallels dosent run windows natively.

    ^ agreed. to play a game like that you really need to run windows via bootcamp.

    Yes, use boot camp.

    Parallels is not for games, except for those games where they list specific titles that work well with it.
