perfomance issue reports are bull****

only played for few minutes, and everything on highest setting/8xCSAA, and its constant 60fps, not a single dip lower.

Ahem, this is simply due to brute force that it's running with 60fps (no sh!t, you have a I7 @ 4.00Ghz). This is Unreal 2.5 so most of our systems should smoke it. If you need a I7 to get 60fps for this game, there isn't any optimization at all.

Anyway, I will test it with my Q6600 @ 3.02Ghz when i get it to see if there is any!

disable DAO and performance will grently improve.

plus most Unreal 2.5 based games don't support AA, and most important aspect

Unreal 2.5 game A doesn't equal Unreal 2.5 game B, engine might be the same, but it all depends how it is used.

you can have the same engine, but put different lighting (big part of Splinter Cell) and performance can be cut by huge margin

btw, it can run higher then 60FPS, i got vsync on, so its keeping FPS down

DAO stresses your GPU, not your CPU (same goes to lighting). For example, in AC2 i had major performance issues (25-50fps) no matter the settings and the performance was the same when using two cores and four cores.

The game does not run as well as it should, but what else is new. 200 series and a quad should smoke any console port, but they don't.

This runs okay though... on my rig, with 4xMSAA and max settings, it stays above 30 94% of the time. I did put it down to 2xMSAA though, just for a bit smoother experience, and it is barely noticeable that it has less AA, it's a smooth looking game. I bet the console version has no real AA.

DAO has no real effect on my rig though, weird that people are insisting that is the big performance killer. I literally saw no fps change with it off.

I enjoyed playing this game on the 360 at a friend's house. I'm not getting it for the PC as I don't have friends to play MP with, and you can't play SP without an internet connection.

It would have been nice to get this for the PS3 and be able to play with friends, but that's not an option either.

By the way, if anyone wants to play coop my Uplay ID is actually the same as here: NarcissistZero, not StingingVelvet.

I will add you later... I actually just finished the game and was trying to find a coop game but nobody was playing .

But anyway... great game, short but sweet and I look forward to the next one. Can't say this is better than Chaos Theory yet, though. But it definitely stomps Double Agent into the ground.
