crap this thread is as dissapointing as the release today. I hope more intend on buying it than I "f.e.a.r" (lamest.pc.gaming.lingo.ever.). Seems like it's gonna be a really good game.

Well probably not me (proud member of the f.e.a.r purchases club) since the game is rather short. It also didn't rate highly on Gamespot.

Sounds good by the review.

Wish there was a demo though.

Yea apparantly so :D TR looks like its gonna be out tomorrow :D I'm gonna pick it up.. w00t

EDIT:

Condemned:

The graphics in general can be described as filthy, cluttered, grimy and jarringly revolting in a gorgeous sort of way. It's a good looking game and actually looks better on the PC than it did on the 360 thanks to some higher resolutions. Though as with F.E.A.R., you'll need a great machine to take advantage of all of the detail and effects the game has to offer. What's strange and a bit disappointing is that the game only supports widescreen format meaning any 4:3 resolution is going to be in letterbox unless you know how to fiddle with your monitor to change that around. In 1600x1200 you'll see the menu system in the right resolution but once in the game you'll have a great view of black strips on top and bottom of your gameplay. While we can appreciate the cinematic aspect of the widescreen, a large number of PC gamers don't have widescreen monitors and we would have appreciated being able to fill up the screen.

WTF, the demo wasn't like that I don't think... I can't believe that I never noticed its in letterbox...

Yep, the demo is in letterbox.

To be honest, I barely noticed it.

The game looks good, runs great, seems pretty cool, but it didnt really blow me away or make me crap myself. Im really turned off by the 10 hours of gameplay too. I could beat the game in 2 sittings :\

I might pick this up some day, but I cant make sense of spending $40 for 2 nights of gaming.

I played the demo last night. Definitely cool, but I think I'll wait for a price drop before picking it up.

It's very cheap from play.com, 18 GBP. That's around $32 USD. :)

Condemned along with Tomb Raider is $39.99. Both should be out today according to EB. I'm picking up TR later today and this sometime next week.

Are any of the big box retailers having a sale on either this or TR?

called my local best buy, they still stick with the 19th as release for it, call to the local ebgames confirms it for me, they also state the 19th. This stinks, only a week more, but I was all ready for it! =/

Well after a long search, I found a copy. Gamestop's only copy ordered. Most stores I went to either said the 19th, or said it should have shipped and dont know where it is. I got lucky. (nana2) Time to install this puppy and see if the two guys at the store were right about how great it is.
