I don't think we are gonna see physx used in popular multi player games like that ever.

I do have a gtx 260 that I am using for physx., and other than three titles I currently have its a waste.
i love the fact that when you knock down tress on the snow level, snow goes everywhere. also when there is an explosion beside the trees. excellent touch. other than that, I really do not care if it is scripted or not. all i care is about shoving a rusty blade into someone's anus.

your negative feelings towards good games are amusing but maybe in your case, "alright" is the highest rating possible, so I should be relieved.

It wasn't a great game by any means. Still don't understand why people enjoyed it so much. Then again, I am not a person that thinks anything involving the mafia = BEST THING EVAR like a lot of brainless people.

A 2kg plastic cone has as much friction and mass as a 50kg concrete block which you can "kick" around as easily and it almost "flies" around!

They even move/react/collide the same way which goes to show how simplistic the physics is (like BF2). CoH brutally outdoes it in physics complexity and quality. Compelte annihilation and CoH is quite old game.

I'd agree with bacon and bob. It may not be completely accurate, but most people are just happy to be able to move the tree out of the way. Much better than BF2 where a light pole will stop a tank dead.

Meh. I see why they felt the need to add a bunch of PhysX to cover up the blah graphics.
