As for different talk... there is not difference. I was commenting on how Butcher Bay looks almost the same as the original version even though starbreeze claimed to bump up its engine.

Never said it looks bad, I think it looks great still, Tons of style to the game... just don't think its worth rebuying if Athena is as bad as reviews say it is.
Nice to hear bro and I was just joking around

Yeah I to thought it should looked way better as the have said it so many times they have done that and that so the game is totaly different but I will play it anyway as I have not played the first one and atleast it looks a little better so it looks pretty good in the end!

How's the performance? Everything all maxed out?? I read at neogaf there is an "ambient occlusion" option that knocks the fps a bit. I have no clue what that is though. I'll try to find the game on the cheap if I can.

It looks like Butcher Bay because it is Butcher Bay, he hasn't played Dark Athena yet.

Then maybe the Dark Athena mission looks better. All the pics they have show from that have gave me the impression it looks really good. I think what i have seen are ace actually but anyway I looking forward to this to as I havent played Butcher Bay before.

I know I should be ashamed LOL..

Original games had hard shadows and soft shadows options. SS were very demanding back then but they looked superb for their period. (maybe you are confusing them with FEAR's SS+AA??)

Haha same ending as butchers bay. 5 seconds long with a big "to be continued". I liked butchers bay original more then dark athena (and athena was really short). I beat it in one sitting.
