My guess is you're either trying to run the game with the settings set too high for your system or haven't taken the time to check out a few reviews before you started playing. Many people have complained that it's not enough "Tomb Raider" or is too much "Uncharted" but I enjoyed the game quite a bit. It's NOTHING like a Call of Duty game except that you end up killing LOTS of enemies - it's an adventure game with a few Quicktime events (especially during the opening...)

If the game is slow you need to tell people what your system specs are (cpu, graphics card, amount of ram, operating system, etc...) so they can help - telling us that it's slow, crashes and asking why isn't gonna get you much positive feedback - we have NO WAY of knowing what could be causing your issue.

Make sure that you've installed all of the Windows updates for your system and if you can try to update any drivers in your system.

My suggestion would be to get the Geforce Experience app, and let it optimize the game for you.

The GeForce Experience app would probably be useful if you're using a Nvidia-based video card but the person who started this thread didn't indicate what kind of card they were using...

lol....
Or educate your self on what is what, and how it effects your FPS. SImply set the graphics at settings that yield acceptable FPS.
That app is for pc illiterates that want encouragement to live in a world of blissful ignorance.

Doesn't that tell you something?????? Get some better hardware.
You should learn about your hardware, where it sits in performance vs other options and what it's capable of with image quality vs fps.
Again "Nvidia experience" is for the pc illiterate to remain blissfully ignorant and uneducated.

Dont have Tress Fx on, it shaves off about 20fps right off the bat with that feature. Thats an amd feature, prolly runs better on amd for them but its still a HUGE fps hog. It renders each strand of hair individually its kinda like amd's version of nvidia's physx.

Turn off v-sync? Turn a couple settings down? Geforce experience isn't always 100% right in my experience, but it gets you in the ballpark. I run the game on Ultra but without v-sync (which Geforce experience recommends having on, but causes stuttering for me at 1920x1080) and post-processing and it runs smooth as silk in 50-80 fps range. But I have a GTX 675mx, you didn't mention what card you have just like the OP, makes it difficult for anyone to help you if you don't say.

I had 1 FPS at first and then it crashed. Actually closing Chrome fixed it for me. Weird I know, might help someone.

The person who originally posted the question hasn't made any additonal comments in this thread so I'm assuming that they must've resolved their problem - without a doubt, stopping any running applications that take up memory (like a web browser) would certainly be advisable when you're running a game. I generally don't have desktop apps running when I'm trying to run something like Tomb Raider or Crysis 3 - seems kinda silly to even have to say that...
