Lost Planet was always good at making full use of hardware. FEAR was too.

I agree. I still use the little benchmark that they added to the demo of this game, I wonder why it wasnt included in the retail version.

This game defintely uses every part in your rig. Im sill amazed at the texture job of the monsters, epic might want to take note on how textures are supposed to look.

Neither did I, actually. I played a good portion of it and then Bioshock and Stranglehold came out at the time I was playing this, and I just never got back to it.

I'll finish it when there's a dry spell in gaming, usually always a few dead months in the summer.

I abandoned the game months ago at level 7, but last weekend I got it back and finished it. Great game, worth every second spent on it.

BTW notice how the SLI on the Skulltrail system beats the 780i (last benchmark on that page)

Sadly the game never lived up to levels 1&2. if they'd just given us 4 more of those it would have been an amazing game, but sadly I felt the more you played it, the more it sucked.

also it was harder than a pirate.

Either GPU limited or not coded well enough to take advantage of the cores. More cores ARE better, but it's not magic.
