It was a 6 or 7 on its base mechanics, but the game was so annoyingly challenging at times I could barely play it. And I've been playing FPS games for 15 years.

I just went and tried to play this game again since getting my 280 (177.41 drivers). I thought the stuttering was bad before but it's even worse now. I'm frequently getting freezes for up to 30 seconds at a time now, then the game resumes. As far as I'm concerned, Midway has no business making games when they make one in this state and then just abandon it.

What a terrible, terrible game. It was playable for a couple of hours, then I got sick of it...

Cause it's the last WHQL driver. The .83 has the physx which I don't want at this time.

I do think the drivers are contributing to this 30 second freezing issue cause last time I played it (awhile back), it still stuttered bad but not for 30 seconds at a time.

I actually like this game if it would play right. Sadly I don't think that's going to happen because of lack of support by the game maker and probably Nvidia also (cause no one's playing the game to give feedback of issues to fix anymore).

I agree, the base game isn't that bad for an FPS lover, it just runs like **** on a PC. I'll probably grab the console version whenever I see it for really cheap.
