Their site does not give info related to DirectX version required. If it requires DX9, you will need to play it in Boot Camp as Parallels only supports DX8.1 at this time.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

You'll also need to be running the latest version of Parallels and activate 3 acceleration from the Parallels Virtual machine settings

people have had weird problem trying to run games on parallels
if you want to run you games use bootcamp that way you could take full advantage of your graphics card
