Just tried and its ok if your into these types of games. No blood which sucks. Ran it 1920X1080 on a GT everything maxed although they left out a few of the high settings. And for some reason you cant get any screenshots with apps so only print screen which is a pain if you want multiple shots.

I was watching a thing on the history channel yesterday that used this game for animations, it looks really cool. Finally an RTS with thousands of soldiers in it.

1280X1024? Why are you guys running it so low on GT's? Seeing that I was getting no performance decrease I raised it to 1920X1080 and still no slow down.

I got it... ran it 1600x1200 all things maxed. Only slowdown I got was a second before entering the campaign for some reason.

Pretty fun, nice to see thousands of your soldiers marching and slaughtered thousands of other soldiers :).

It's weird...I fall to 18 fps at times when theres 100 men on screen, but it's still very smooth....I wouldnt know my frames were that low if fraps werent enabled....I had the 66.00 drivers installed...decided to try the 62.20's, no improvement in performance, but I have to say these have much better i.q. ...keeping these until (hopefully) the 66.02's leak. Nice game, def buying it when it comes out.

Decisive Battles kicks ass, and so does the host dude from Band of Brothers (He's Lieutenant Spears). (salute)
