Apex is much more, than a cloth simulation - http://developer.nvidia.com/object/apex.html

Oh definitely. I think they will release PhysX trailer sooner or later and then we'll be able to see if it's worth it.

Batman had a demo too, but some PhysX things were missing. Let's hope it will be beter this time.

Apex is a cloth simulation. Screenshots don't really show the effects for stuff like that. But I'm sure there will be some nice marketing comparison videos
I'd have to agree. I think the shot of the cars on the bridge could be used as a photo. If you look closely you can tell it's not real, but just a quick glance and it definitely does.

I think it looks fine. Obviously carefully developed to stay in the style of the original game. Let's just hope the gameplay is good because that's what really matters.

BTW nvidia confirmed that this game is 3dvision and surround 3d compatible.

I know about that, what I meant was more like in the Batman trailer with PhysX low, medium and high.

They claim 10 hours which seems kind of short for a game that's been in development for so long but I guess at least it's not 6 or so. They complain about it being linear but I'm not sure what they expected, GTA? The original was very linear (which is not necessarily a bad thing) and very much different from GTA.

The first one wasn't linear, but it didn't offer much in free roaming.
