  1. yes, integrated graphics is the problem, because sophisticated video games require a dedicated graphics card.

    that being said, intel HD should meet the minimum requirements for your game. Have you tried steam forums? I'm sure people who sell the game should be able to have an answer
  2. yes the game runs but its really slow....

    you can try lowering the resolution

    if that doesn't yield playable frames then your only option is to get a dedicated GPU
