    Google the software name + "system requirements". Also since it's presumably a 3D game, Google game name + your video card model. You will find relevant problems and solutions, and maybe ways to optimize your particular system for the game. Enjoy.

    If the entire game is 120MB, no.

    That is not the entire game size, the game is around 8 GB in size and I find it highly suspicious that you can download a game illegally from gamespot.

    Is it in a link to download?

    I repeat, the game you are downloading is not large enough a file size, even if it has been compressed that is still far too small.

    If you want the game, go to a shop and buy it. If you don't want to buy it I'm sure you've heard of pirates who used to do such things a long time ago, sat in their pirate bays. It is questionable too so just think about that.

    Red Alert is an old game isn't it, it could be around 120 MB... haha

    I torrent a lot of the old games on my computer, often you need a CD emulator like Daemon Tools and usually the torrent will include a crack/CD key if needed. Not that I would advocate any such less than legal behavior...
