Arrow Ridd-ick: Assault on Dark Athena: Official Thread

The game is out... got it from Gamestop today. I know it says April 7th everywhere buy my Gamestop has it and said Atari did not put a release date hold on the game, so they could sell it when they got it, which was this morning.

Game has a lot of graphics options, which makes it feel like a PC game. It also takes up the whole screen and has a small HUD/Reticule, which also makes it feel like a PC game.

Options were AA, AF, ambient occlusion, pixel color depth or something, shadows, textures, and a few more... pretty robust. Unfortunately with everything maxed I got some low framerates, especially in outside areas like the prison dock at the start.

Here are some pics... nothing special because I just started. These are with 4xAA and the game needs more than that. They're also without post-processing because I missed the option box.

You need to fix the screen ratio... it looks slightly stretched.

looks amazing as usual.

It's not. They replaced all the hard arsed male prisoners with strippers. ViN didn't want to look too gay.
