    Don't bother with user reviews.

    Pretty much any serious gamer will agree that integrated graphics are far too weak to give decent performance in modern games. Warhammer will be very graphically demanding, and would need a dedicated video card to run well.

    Here are the system requirements for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

    PC SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

    For Windows XP

    · 2.5 GHz P4 (single core) processor or equivalent
    · 1 Gigabyte RAM
    · A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
    · At least 15 GB of hard drive space

    For Windows VISTA

    · 2.5 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
    · 2 Gigabyte RAM
    · A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
    · At least 15 GB of hard drive space

    Supported Video Cards

    ATI Radeon(TM) series

    · 9500, 9600, 9800
    · X300, X600, X700, X800, X850
    · X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950
    · 2400, 2600, 2900,
    · 3650, 3850, 3870
    · 4850, 4870

    NVIDIA GeForce series

    · FX 5900, FX 5950
    · 6600, 6800,
    · 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950
    · 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800
    · 9400, 9500, 9600, 9800
    · GTX 260, GTX 280

    Intel(R) Extreme Graphics

    · GMA X4500

    As you can see, there is only one Intel graphics chip listed, and I can pretty much guarantee that it will struggle to run the game on low settings.
