Default Re: Timeshift is an excellent overlooked game

I picked up Time Shift last night. (just in case we don't get a good shooter this month ..*cough hehehe..) I played afew hours and was happy with the purchase. There is nothing overly innovative about the game, but nothing done wrong either. A+ for the engine too, the textures are very sharp and its stable.

My AA is forced in game by using the nVidia control panel with 169.01 drivers. I simply set override any application setting and then put AA on 4x and it works.

Hmm..really? 169.04s here, nothing works. May have to try the 01s.

Played the Demo on the 360 and I wasn't very impressed. Though I'm not a fan of many FPS games on consoles. I may pick it up for the PC when GoGamer has a sale on it.

You don't. Freeze time and run by it down the stairs on the right area. You will see what I mean.

I have been playing a couple of days now and I totally agree with the original poster in that the game is underrated. Other than the story telling the rest of the game is top notch. Graphically certain levels such as the tank factory are absolutely breathtaking and raise the bar for current games. Outdoor areas are also very well done. The core combat gameplay is also very satisfying and I am finding it improves further along into the game. It really annoys me when a very good no nonsense shooter like this is overlooked by reviewers and gamers alike. The graphics, puzzles, AI and combat is far superior to the highly rated EP2 and yet it scores much lower, I just don't understand.
