A friend just got his copy today from the egg. Ordered it yesterday.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832193024

He hasn't played it yet, I am curious as what he thinks.

Here is the game with max dx10 settings, (still a couple settings are grayed out, i think they are wet surfaces and volumetric smoke) I think its not working right, cause I don't see god rays or other effects.

Also these screens have FULL AA, I have AA forced off in nvidia control panel, i don't know why its doing AA but that explains the bad performance.

I thought it was reported that the game was delayed in the US due to manufacturing problems?

Hmm. Doesn't look to me like AA is enabled in those screens. Check out the lamp post in the first one, and the antenna in the last one... If it's enabled, I'd say it's no more than 2x...

That, or I have to have my eyes checked :D

compare this screen i posted above, with the second screen I took in dx9 mode.

I can tell that not everything has AA in dx10 but most of it does.

Bah... I hope not. :(

I just wanted this game to improve the translation, graphics and overall polish. That's all that the first one really needed.

The tech demos looked so much better than those screen shots. Why is the beam and sky all distorted? I hope it doesn't perform like ass, and the game play is as good as Shadow.

It scored 68% or something (definitely in the 60s) in PCGamer UK.

To be honest, this game has never looked any good to me.

I wonder why PC Gamer gave it such a low score. That really sucks.

Yeah, his buddy must of really pulled some strings to get the game already??!!

Yup, its on but definitely looks only 2xAA. The game must be really messed up for AA and DX10 in general.

that's the thing... my two favorite games last year were STALKER and Witcher... and neither got much good press initially.

I ordered it, I'll let you all know how it is. :D

PCGamer UK's top end computer is a bit of a laugh, i think it has 2 8800gts's and everything else is mid/high end.

Impressive enough for most games but hardly pushing the frontier of gaming, especially for a game with performance problems. (i havent read the review yet)

Runs jerky for a few seconds, but mostly I'm at 40 fps average (dips 20 highs 90) in DX10 1600x1200 16xAF allmost everything maxed out with MSAA (totally jaggie free, much clearer then the SS here, looks like 8xAA or higher)
Only one slider an one checkbox can't adjusted.

Some SS's:

I expect silky smooth gameplay after one or two patches and will buy the game, it's looks beautiful. In fact it play's quite smooth after all the loading is done :)
