Got this today at Gamestop... hate buying from them, but the woman was shopping and I needed to waste time.

Haven't played it yet, but I wanted to post a pic of the MASSIVE list of video options this sucker provides. Seriously... you thought it was a console port... how wrong you were!! Look at this insanity!!!

I'll report back on what you can force through nHancer... I hope a lot.

I'm kind of scared to launch this puppy.

Its a fun game. Needs AA though. Tried forcing through driver CP, doesnt work.

Game actually looks really good and is DAMN fun. Color me surprised.

Trying to force AA though... only thing the game needs really.

Also, at 1920x1200 it runs at like 90fps on my rig, so it is well optimized. This is no Saint's Row 2 (thank God).

Have you tried renaming the .exe to the UT3 one?

No, I will try that later. Forcing AF works, for the record, and looks a lot better.

Just wrote this on the Steam forum as a mini-review:

VERY fun game. The controls are spot-on on PC and the visuals are nice, but what really stand out is that the game is just madcap insanity kind of fun. Every moment feels like an over-the-top Hollywood action movie and the story is the same way. Car chases are insane and so it the "car melee" dynamic, which has you swinging your mouse around Wii style in order to bump other cars.

This is not realistic at all, you can ram a car head on riding a motorcycle and not even be thrown off sometimes, and when you are you don't even get hurt. This is balls to the wall fun and I very much enjoy it, sort of the opposite of Grand Theft Auto IV (though I love that game for different reasons).

Performance is great, on my GTX 260 the game flies at 90fps in 1920x1200. Sadly there are NO graphics options other than resolution, so it feels like a port. It takes up the whole screen though, and as I said it controls well, so it's not too bad. Forcing AF through the control panel works great, but AA does not, sadly. Maybe that can be worked out soon.

In short, if you like madcap racing games with tons of action I HIGHLY suggest a purchase, unless the lack of AA and other graphics options will highly annoy you.

It's really fun to play.

Changing the .exe to ut3 or UTGame makes the game a black screen during 3D gameplay... fail.

Tried super sampling, enhance in-game setting and override, nHancer and normal control panel, nothing works at getting AA for this game... double fail.

The game would actually look really nice if it had AA, in my opinion, as it already looks pretty good for how well it runs (which is to say very, very well).

Also: fun game, in case I haven't said that already.

Yepp but a Wii dont drag down pc gaming in anyway and cant be compared, who the fu... do that anyway ?

Console for me is about fun classic gaming. when I want really imersive looking great games thats what I have a Pc and man do I hate that the Pc is held back by the wannabe boxes, every Pc gamer knows that. okey we might get more games then ever before and some devs actually use the extra power we have and memory, it's not like we have 2Mb ram is it ;)

And they who have the brains nows that and use and optimize it well. so do it well and ppl actually will bye the game so it's a win win. these sloppy ports deserve shi. download till your head explode I say. crappy POS will never get my money thats for sure, not even worth a d/l

Despite the lack of vid options it's good to see some decent ports out. Though being UE3 it is hard to stuff up the technical side... Easy to stuff up controls though...

Ok but you are complaing about low res textures in Wheelman... let's compare -

http://www.abload.de/img/wheelman1kku1.jpg

And this looks acceptable to you?

LMAO I had to pick myself up off the floor. Seriously, Wheelman looks light years beyond the Wii. Please dont even bring up vasoline filters and low res textures ever again if you own / play / like the Wii. kthxbai. :p
