We know you are burning up inside to begin beating away at your mouse, but hold up a bit, there are some things you might want to know before you jump in.

System Requirements:

The good thing about this game is how it doesn't force gamers to upgrade to play. If you're a gamer, then the following specs should be just fine, if not, then your PC is a potato and getting rid of it is probably the best solution.

The only downside is the need to be connected via a broadband internet connection to play the game. This is required even if you are playing in the single player campaign, which is a big slap in the face to those who do not have internet on a regular basis.
