This game played ok on the Surface Pro at 1024X768 with all the settings on low or off. The game had frame rates usually of 20-30 FPS. The game was even playable at 720p but would dip more often to the mid and low teens than I liked. Additionally note that the game has the 'Hobbit' effect because it was stretched to fit the whole screen, I was unable to get it to maintain the aspect ratio. The bad news, this game actually plays slightly better on the Surface Pro 1 so I will NOT give it a SurfaceProGaming Certification :(.
