The game is out... got it from Gamestop today. I know it says April 7th everywhere buy my Gamestop has it and said Atari did not put a release date hold on the game, so they could sell it when they got it, which was this morning.

Game has a lot of graphics options, which makes it feel like a PC game. It also takes up the whole screen and has a small HUD/Reticule, which also makes it feel like a PC game.

Options were AA, AF, ambient occlusion, pixel color depth or something, shadows, textures, and a few more... pretty robust. Unfortunately with everything maxed I got some low framerates, especially in outside areas like the prison dock at the start.

Here are some pics... nothing special because I just started. These are with 4xAA and the game needs more than that. They're also without post-processing because I missed the option box.

It's not. They replaced all the hard arsed male prisoners with strippers. ViN didn't want to look too gay.

It's whole new game, along with the old game. He's just saying the new game "sucks"... which is what IGN says about everything not original.

Also that Hillary guy did the review, and he's an idiot.

I wasnt arguing whether it was or wasn't... just said that is auto right there. I only loaded the game up briefly... will play with it later.

P.S. It has online activation, for those who hate that... not SecuROM, I think it's TAGES.

What version display drivers do you currently have Narcissist ? I try launching the game but I get a "Breakpoint" error when launching the game. :(

I'm still on the 185 betas, but I plan to revert to the last WHQL release soon.

Atari has been ignoring Steam lately, sadly.

On the stretching issue... the game actually gives you a plethora of aspect ratio options, which is sweet. "Normal" seems to default to an anamorphic 16:9 image like Mirror's Edge or Assassin's Creed, "Auto" seems to pick whatever fills your screen, and then you can also select other aspect ratios based on width and height. It's pretty cool, you can even play the game in scope ratio, but I would bet most people will default to "normal" and play with no stretching.

No matter how much AA I apply the metal surfaces shimmer... game needs transperent MSAA or whatever it's called.
