Test it on 2 machines (core i5 +6G ram and core duo +4G ram) Im bot cases i can run this game well in windows fisrt one with gaphics medium settings and second one with gaphics minimum settings.

I test on both with linux partition and gaphics settings to min and in bot machines i get a laggy game with very very low framerate.
