Overall the experience was pretty smooth. Yes, I did face some hiccups and frame drops here and there. But it can be easily overlooked. I tested the game on two systems actually. And what I found is, the game was running better on the system that had SSD installed. The system that was using just a normal 7200 rpm HDD was actually struggling at some instances. So try to get yourself a SSD. Trust me, the game will love it.
