Anyone getting it?

I'd really like to pick it up, just want to be sure it's worth it. The console version is getting low 5-6 / 10. Mainly due to the controller being iffy for platforming.

Hmmm, walmart (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5156352) and target (http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-1/qid=1181440109/ref=sr_1_1/602-7269523-4628648?ie=UTF8&asin=B000FSS8MO) have them shipping online. I'll call around.

Looks like complete ass on the 360 compared to how it looks on the PC. Low res textures, no af or aa and only a fraction of the foilage/grass.

Oh well, guess they had to sacrifice visuals in order to keep it from being a slide show on the 360.

That's what I'm curious about as well. I'm not buying a copy till the DX10 content is out.

I like this game and only stopped playing it to wait on the DX10 content - I had gotten about 1/3 of the way through it.

I can't even get the damn DX10 benchmark to launch on my setup. Looks like it's try before I buy on this one. I have been looking forward to playing this game in DX10 so once I know for sure it will run on my system I will pick it up.

I have the game, its great, even without the dx10 stuff

Cant wait for the patch

Those who arent getting it just because its not dx10 are idiots, sorry...but you are. The game looks great maxed out, and the storyline is nice so far.

I think I do recall seeing people on one forum saying that the US version does have Directx 10, but you may have to launch from a different shortcut in Vista (from the games manager).

I have the US version i believe, and theres no dx10

There's going to be a patch soon i beleive

Not sure if he's being truthful or not, but someone posted on another forum that if you right click on the shortcut in the Vista games explorer, there is an option to run it in directx 10 mode (only in the US version that launched this week in stores).

Just played it for the second time. It's a great story but the game is a little on the short side. Like breathemetal said it's a great game dx9 or dx 10.

I dont see that option for dx10 anywhere

This game, crushes my rig. I have to play at 1024x768, Shader Model 2 (+20 FPS over SM3), medium textures, no AA, no shadows, everything else low or off just to maintain 40+ frames per second.

Shader Model 3 and shadows (even low setting) cost 20 frames per second each. With both on I get like 12 unplayable frames. With one or the other on it goes up to 22. Kill the remaining one and I'm up to 42+.

The thing is, it doesn't look anywhere near good enough to be running like this. It looks good, don't get me wrong, but I think Far Cry even looked this good (better) and it ran better at higher settings and res than this 2 PC's ago.

In short. Performance is atrociously bad.

It must jsut be your system.

Im running it maxed at 1280x1024 and everything in the CP is maxed as well

Never once had a stutter or lag

Well, look at your system compared to mine. You'll have to take my word that mine is a lean and mean as it can be for the hardware it has though.

I stuck Vista *cough, spit, gag* on just out of curiosity and it ran the same, maybe a tad better even surprisingly, and the sound was really good on Vista. Wow, was it good. I don't know enough about Vista yet to say why, but man it was crystal clear with very distinct positional audio. Every bird chirp came from a separate speaker, very clearly.

Now, I'm off to restore my Windows XP image and try to get that same kind of sound!

Looks like it may be time for a upgrade bloke :D

The performance in DX9 isn't so bad and the game still looks pretty good. Hopefully Nvidia gives us some "magic" drivers early next week for DX10.

New drivers + a DX10 patch would be wonderful (nana2)

I saw some vidoes of this game on youtube. The fire looks cool.

Sometimes you can't trust reviews.

That's probably a good thing for me because I tend not to finish games that are too long.

I checked out gametrailers.com and the hd video looks amazing. I'm downloading the demo right now and if doesn't totally suck I'll probably buy it. I've always wanted to play an fps set in the west.
