Becuase when it comes to games the GPU is the most important factor.

Your GPU is just an integrated chip and (even though I couldn't find anything on it) seems like it does not meet the requirments.

You're going to have to buy a dedicated video card with at least shader model 2.0 to play that game.

Is it a laptop?
Yes, any integrated gpu are bad for gaming. If you have a laptop then you can't do anything. If you have PC, get a dedicated graphic card, any graphic cards today are supported shader model 2.0.
