Haha... funny that you mention that.

I'm about 4 levels into the game now, and the game is starting to take its toll on my lowly P4. During heavy firefights, the framerate does fall into the single digits. However, I've figured out that even though the processor can't keep up, the ram can. Even though it's slowed down to as low as 5 fps, the framerate is still consistant (no lagging frames or such...)

As such, I must concede that 5 fps is wayyyy below the playable range for any game. Soooo the game is playable to an extent on the minimum spec system.
