Assassin's Creed II lagging

Just bought Assassin's Creed II (slowpoke, I know), but it's running really bad on my computer. The characters are done talking way before their mouths are, it's all really jumpy and laggy, and it's all really frustrating. I am on a laptop, so updating my computer won't work, but I really didn't think my laptop was quite that crappy.

Processor*
Intel® Pentium® Processor P6200
Operating System*
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Graphics Engine*
Mobile Intel® HD Graphics
Graphics Memory*
64MB-1696MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory

Memory*
4GB DDR3 1066MHz memory
Hard Drive*
320GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial ATA)
Optical Drive*
DVD-SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash™ drive

Display Size
15.6" widescreen
Display Type*
HD TruBrite® LED Backlit display
Display Resolution
Supports 720p content, 1366x768 (HD), 16:9 aspect ratio

Is my computer really so bad it can't even run a game that is a year older than it is, or is there another problem that can be thought of?

    To answer your question honestly. Yes your computer is bad for gaming. The year a computer was bought/made means nothing in regards to pc gaming. When trying to find a computer that can play games at a decent frame per second the most important factor is the GPU, then the CPU. Your rocking integrated graphics which is notorious for not being able to play games well.
  2. You must be happy because your computer allows you to play Assassin's creed II.. Your Laptop is not good for gaming..
