Look on the bright side by the time a mainstream video card plays the game at decent rates it will be on the $4.99 bargain shelf.
Plenty of other games to play in the mean time.
Actually what I dont like is why cant they take resolutions down on each video card until the game plays at 30fps and 60fps. For instance lets say the radeon 3850 plays the game at 1024x768 at 30FPS instead of showing it will play at 2FPS at 763427861726 x 76482394 resolution. The way the review sites portray the game you would think no video card exists that you can play the game on.
You know If I knew what resolution I could play the game at decent frame rates I might have bought the game. This is poor execution on the part of the review sites. Ok so I can only play it at 1024x768 thats fine by me. Arent games supposed to be about gameplay? I can name plenty of pretty games that are horrible to play.

If you have a TFT, as you should by now anyway, then you only want to play it at native resolution.
The game does have lower quality settings and is playable on many cards now - there is no excuse to not buy it. Or try the demo at least... don't just judge it by video card benchmarks.
These articles are focusing on the hardware, trying to stress it out the most, to show what it is capable of and where it tops out - it is not at all a review of the games, their prettiness or gameplay. So I don't see why your comment winded up in this direction.
