Is this game seriously threaded or something? In general, game performance seems to be better with Phenoms rather than Bulldozers because of better single core performance, which makes their high performance suggestion kind of odd

Agreed- UBI is a big publisher though, they tend to exaggerate system specs to be BFF with the hardware folks. Once upon time many "high end" games included a bump mapping mode that made everything look pitted and would only run smooth on whatever cutting edge CPU/GPU was out. It looked like crap, but you did need the recommended system specs to run it.

I went to an i3 3.3ghz recently- it's a big step up from my Phenom 9500.

I think the only time you need a big 4+ core CPU for games is when you're on a laptop because of clock throttling.
