    Look behind you >:D
    For me, all the graphics are severely glitched up and I can't even see anything. I'm running it in Windows XP SP3 in a virtual machine on VMware Fusion on a Mac with a decent graphics card (ATI Radeon 2400 XT), 4 gigs of RAM, and 2.0GHz processor which can run other 3D games perfectly fine. I have 1 GB of RAM allocated to the virtual machine and both of the cores are enabled on it. Here are a few pictures of what I'm getting:
    Someone please tell me how to fix this, because it sounds like a pretty good game and I would like to actually play it...
    Also, I've been able to play Red Alert 3, Terraria, and Minecraft (yes, I know there's a Mac version but I wanted to test it) pretty smoothly. And before anyone says "Oh, use bootcamp," Ubuntu severely ruined any chances of me ever using it...

    I guess you already fixed it or gave up but thought i leave the answer here incase someone came look for an answer....

    go to setting (in game setting) > options > graphics options

    set the Shader quality LOW and press ok

    i set my resolution to 1680x1050 works best for me
