    Most likely not. You would nee a very powerful graphics card. Sorry.

    thanks for replying.

    tech requirements available on the internet points to 512mb of vram, which the 6630m only has 256. otherwise, i think the 6630m (a 2011 directx11-capable gpu) would otherwise meet the tech requirement and the sandy bridge cpu, as well--would have been enough, too.

    oh, well.

    thanks for the reply, tho.

    I think it will still run, not on the highest resolution, but it should run. High graphics memory is used for high resolution textures and high resolutions in general, if you turn that down, it should be playable.

    It will definitely run. Just don't expect to be running it at 1080p or higher with high settings etc.
    I can guarantee you it will run at 720p and low/medium settings just fine.

    i guess we'll find out soon enough.

    i still need win7 to be able to run this so i have to wait if other mac mini owners with 6630m will be able to run this game decently.
