Yeah don't buy it yet. I far exceed the minimum specs (Core i7 4770k, Radeon 7870, 16 GB RAM, OCZ vertex SSD) and it runs like a slide show on all settings. It's unplayable at even modest settings; the settings at which it is at least barely playable it looks like absolute shit.

Given the differences in user experiences I suspect it is optimized only for a subset of configurations; given the similar experiences of other users to myself and their relatively high end specs it seems that one can well exceed the recommended specs and end up with an unplayable shitty experience. Wait for several patches. It might be great after that and you might even get lucky if you buy it now and it turns out to like your system, but if you're unlucky you're not going to like it very much.
