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 :(.

This video was uploaded under the Fair Use (http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html) Doctrine answering the following questions

1. The purpose and character of the use - The original content is a video game created for entertainment purposes. We in turn, are using a clip from this game to review if the game can or can not run efficiently on the Microsoft Surface Pro or other hardware, which in turn is a completely different use than that intended by the original content.

2. The nature of the copyrighted work - We are reviewing a fictional based video game.

3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole - All clips are less than 20 minutes to give us a reasonable play time to demonstrate the viability of playing such a game under the Microsoft Surface Pro or other hardware.

4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work - Since our videos are just a reviewing on how the game plays on a particular hardware, our video review could never be a substitute for playing the game itself.
