PhysX high single GTX 280 -29.7705 FPS
PhysX med single GTX 280 -49.171 FPS

PhysX high GTX 280 / 9600GT - 34.1647 FPS
PhysX med GTX 280 / 9600GT - 56.33 FPS

Not really much gain with 9600GT handling PhysX. Mirror's Edge and Batman Arkham Asylum really take advantage of the second card. This one doesn't. Keep in mind this is just the demo.

Yes I think the PC version has been done for quite some time, it went gold back in February I think but the project ran out of money so they couldn't release it. Apparently they found an investor a few months later and then finished the 360 port. This game was made by a rather small team as well and its their first FPS.

Bah... I was going to ignore this game but hearing that I think I'll try the demo and 'hope' to like it. Maybe the price won't be exponentially high for the finished product and the reviews of the full game will be decent. I always like to help the little guy.

Why would you ignore a demo for a game in a genre you like in the first place?

Just because I've read so many people who have played it and said it was crap... though you are right.

Never, ever believe anyone but yourself... if I didnt see all the movies everyone else said were crap or play the games... I dont think I'd ever see a movie or play a game. 99% of the time they were wrong!

The game wasn't that bad, however I found the performance vs visuals to be strange. Even with the PhysX effects it didn't look particularly great but it also didn't seem to want to run at anything higher than around 30FPS. It was playable, but I think it should have been faster.
