Lets hear it :afro:

Make sure to pick up the official patch first (thanks SH64)
Patch 1.01 (http://patches.ubi.com/splinter_cell_chaos_theory/splinter_cell_chaos_theory_1.01_america.exe)

Here is my quick review:
Game is fantastic, graphics are better than the demo, and run twice as fast, 1600x1200 HDR/8xAF and all options maxed is completely playable. I just finished the first two missions, and they were extremely tense, and exciting. Can't wati to get to the other missions :) Here is some quick screenshots I grabbed from the full version:

Actually if it is anything like the multiplayer beta... it has an autopatcher included.

Anyway... yeah... I SHOULD be getting the game tomorrow... but gamestop.com might screw me over.

I read some messages from people who already have the game and they said only SM 1.1 and SM 3.0

I'm very interested in this game, especially after reading the PCGamer review. I think I'll download the demo tomorrow when I get back on campus and see.

I remember playing the first game two years ago, but that was on a GF4 and it kept overheating my computer and crashing it, so it kinda left a sour taste in my mouth. But from the little I was able to play of that...it was spectacular.

Getting my copy on wednesday. I can't wait. The demo will have to suffice until then. I've been trying to get 100% on the hardest level. ;)

That 1280 x 960 rez seems to be hurting your framerate there Jakup.

I'm playing sm3.0 all options enabled at 1024 x 768 and that section
with the cave bridge i get about 40 fps, so i prefer that over 1280 x 960.

Btw, Gamespot stooped to new lows ; they gave the game a mere 8.6
Yes, Kasavin strikes again. Remember he gave MGS2 a 9.6, MGS3 a 8.7
though.

Thats actually 1600x1200 with the screen size reduced 80% :) With the newer drivers SLI actually worked in HDR, so I was getting about 40fps at 1600x1200, but they were so unstable in other games I was forced to go back to the latest officials.

One of the best games for 2005 I think. Tomorrow I'll pick it up at the media markt in Rotterdam, not that many knows that store though :D

I was thinking, if I should play it now, or wait for a next gen videocard ;) I do'nt think I can wait so long...

Man... gamestop is pissing me off so bad... I am STILL in the freaking "Processing" stage... those idiots should have had it sent by now... this is getting ridiculous... when I preorder a game... I expect to get it when I am supposed to (with overnight shipping and the game being out yesterday... I should have it... TODAY)... yet they can't even ship it off STILL.

So has anybody actually gotten the pc version yet? No one in the southwest florida area is carrying the pc version, the xbox and ps2 version are in stores but the pc version is not. Same thing for my friend in chicago

Is it DVD only, or is there a CDROM version as well? I guess it doesn't much matter since I used the DVD version to convince my wife that it was time to get a DVD burner. :D

There is a CD version with maybe 3 or 4 CD's. I ordered the collectors DVD set which comes with the game and an extra DVD with some videos and art from the making of the game as well as some background information on the programming of the game itself.

Here's what I got:

Whether you bought the collectors edition or not the're both dvd, no cd roms. The collectors edition just comes with an extra dvd

Well this is great... my hate for Gamestop has stopped and my hate for FedEx begins... I used to love FedEx... until today... they apparently couldn't drop my package off without me signing for it... even though they have done that MANY times in the past (I used to order A LOT of stuff).

Sometimes that's not FedEx's fault. If the shipper specifies it needs a signature then that's how they're going to do it.

Well then I hate everybody... this is so freaking retarded.

That's weird about it not being available yet. Usually EB is really good about having a PC game on launch day before everyone else....

Mr. Hunt

Well... if they don't leave it at my door tomorrow... I will be killing everyone.
