Warning to people with 1 gig of ram, during the cutscenes it will barely run at all unless you get another gig, A scene will begin, and you will hear audio, but you wont see anything, and then a still image will appear, and for pretty much the entire cutscene except for a few scenes you will be watching a slideshow, trying to figure out whats going on.

The gameplay itself will be fine, some pauses here and there but very smooth, but once the cutscenes start, good luck.
