Arrow Summary of GeForce 8800 Game Issues

Okay, with the latest drivers (97.44) I saw people mention a few issues in games that I hadn't tried in a while. So, I spent all day going through all the games I have installed to see how things were. In this post, I'll list all the games that looked fine to me. In the following posts, I'll list the games I had issues with and include screenshots showing the issue. When I get a chance, I'll go back to 97.28 and see if any of these issues are new to the 97.44s. With some quick tests I had been doing, I hadn't seen some of these problems in the 97.28s so I'm curious if I just missed it or if it's new to 97.44.

With the source games, people are mentioning a "fog issue" but I don't play source games enough to notice whatever that issue is. So, someone else will need to demonstrate it. I listed all source games as fine since they looked fine to me.

Games checked that worked fine for me:

Battlefield 2
Boiling Point
Brothers in Arms Earned in Blood
Call of Duty 2
Chronicles of Riddick
Counter-Strike: Source
CRC 2005
Day of Defeat
