Nothing without manual intervention.
Game is playable and beatable, as enough of the graphics work to allow interpreting what is going on, though a relatively high resolution helps.
Edit the config.ini file in the program's directory (steamapps/common/defensegrid*/config.ini if installed under Steam) and change quality to 0 or 1.
What does not
3D models in-game.
