It's not hard to see how inefficient the engine is. Take a game with similar 'effects and generic demands' and compare heat, resource, and variable other measures and you'll see there is an extremely large 'draw' on resources then any other comparable product. This is due to the engine not being able to scale and render well(IE: being extremely inefficient). You don't have to know how the engine is coded or 'works' to know if it's doing something well or not. I can drive a car and tell if it's running the best it can or not without knowing the compression ratio of the motor.
