Apparently it got delayed for PC until the 4th (ship date?) and I've heard it may be in short supply.

Sounds like a horrible port... glad I got it on console.

Game is still fun... rough around the edges, but fun. If you're not a huge fan of these games maybe wait 'til it's cheaper, but definately pick it up.

Note that for ATI users, you should deactivate water effects found under the "video options>advanced menu". This restores smooth game play. The game suffers from very poor frame rates on ATI cards with this setting enabled. Just an FYI.

Once water effects are disabled, the frame rates and gameplay is smooth (on the 4870X2 anyway).

Sounds like this game could have been a lot better from the reviews, which is a shame because I've been following this game for a very long time. I was going to buy this but now I'm having second thoughts.

I haven't seen a good review of this yet... it is really balls to the wall fun, and everyone who has it seems to love it. I can't stop playing it.

The reviews are harping on the bugs and lack of innovation. I am harping on what a blast it is to play.

I got it for PS3... great fun... never played much of the first, but bought this one... Coop is fun, but on some missions can kind of hinder you... I set it to allow anybody to join my games... don't have many friends that have the game... so I figured I would just let anybody join.

So far it is really fun... some of the custom vehicles are really cool and in this game I actually feel like I will complete it 100% because it is fun doing everything.

EDIT: And another fun thing you can do in this game is grab a big fuel tank with a helicopter and drop it from the sky and watch it go boom.
