My pics were from the "enhanced" Butcher Bay because that is what I played through first... it comes with the new game. I posted Athena shots later, as did others.

Ahh cool, Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Is SLI/Quad-SLI not working correctly atm?
yes it is working, 8xAA really kills performance, 4xAA gives me over 120FPS.

What is that Shadow Ambient Occlusion option that disables when you enable AA? Apparently it generates shadows based on ambient light sources? Has anyone tried with this on and off and can tell the difference? Also, is it possible to have both AA and this option on? I tried forcing AA through nHancer while having this option on high, but the AA doesn't apply in that case either.

It's definately more action oriented than Butcher Bay at times, but is still a great game with a more dramatic and intense feeling world and story than most FPS games.

I don't really understand the reviewers who loved BB but hate Athena... they're really too similar to call Athena out like that.

Butchers Bay was awesome, the reviews coming for Dark Athena are mixed though, the ones that had previously liked BB don't seem to care so much for DA, yet the reviewers that never played BB seem to really like DA.

I'm still not sure if this one is worth a buy.

Funny that information was on their own forums. Sounds like they need some PR people to straighten out the DRM thing thing.

How do to know for sure it revokes a key back???? Have you tried it, does it tell you it is (like GTA 4 or FC2?)

Im done with DRM headaches...I dont want to buy anymore games with this kind of security.
