I highly doubt it, see if theres a demo of it and see if it works.

thats what i thought. even a demo will take time to download. id rather just know if its worth it or not. i ran a systemrequirements test and its just the gpu that fails. its only got 128mb ram instead of 256mb and its missing pixel shader and something else

You could try the demo, but I think it may not work.

hmm i think ill give it a miss. would be a waste of downloading bandwidth and time. ill just have to think of another game to get, or i might see if it would work on my other pc, its just it only has 512mb ram and a sempron processor and my laptop can run san andreas better than it can

Maybe because the Xpress 200 is too slow. If you can, the only best bet is to try unfortunately.

you need to have dedicated graphics to play at at least. xpress 200 is just onboard. Not sure about the intel, but its prolly integrated graphics that shares 128mb of your system memory.
