Played one of the two levels. It's a bit of a Splinter Cell clone. Graphics are ok, game play ok. Nothing special. There is a Xbox version and there have been 2 reviews so far both very bad. Average between the 2 is 56%. That dosn't bode well for the game.

I don't have time to play it right now but here a few shots from the very beginning.

I get a BSOD and reboot about 1 minute or so into the game every time. I tried installing different drivers, disabling SLi, and playing it on Win32. Nothing seems to work this game still crashes my system. Probably the starforce drivers... :rolleyes:

I bought the retail version for something new to do.....the game is at best a nice distraction....
I don't think anyone will be jumping up & down about how great it is. CW is an average sneaker, that does nothing wrong, but nothing that really gets you either. The X-Ray camera and gaget making are just gimicks to get you things to play with in the game. I'll likely never finish the game...I've got about 5hours into it and am getting bored.

Graphics look kind of nice, a bit blury and washed out, when not facing the right direction. I suppose that was the intended effect.
Someone obviously thinks that the most fun thing about a game is dying. Getting killed within a second of encountering an enemy is normal. For me, so far, game play involves sneeking / walking forward, dying, remember where that enemy was, avoid / shoot (repeat several times as you only get 1/2 sec to react), move on, repeat. I didn't complete either level, got too angry and gave up, so my impression is probably inaccurate.

Finally got rid of the BSOD IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Wasn't starfish after all. One of my PCI cards was sharing IRQ with one of my 6600GTs.

Since you brought the subject .. how do you check & fix the IRQ sharing issues ?? is it done from the BIOS ?

Yes on my mobo there is a section in the BIOS to set IRQs as "Reserved". Upon booting Windows will assign the device IRQs instead.
