I'm impressed that they're releasing it this year. Way faster turnaround than most (Halo, Half Life 2, etc.)

Did anyone watch the entire tech demo video that Epic showed? If GoW 2 turns out to have even half the features they showed (and of course run as decent as shown too) it will knock me off my feet. I thought GoW was as beautiful as we're ever ganna get with X360- and that was with texture popping galore. I'm very impressed

I didn't have any problems with GOW on PC. It had the occasional desktop crash but it was a simple conflict with window blinds that all I had to do was just click GOW down in the running apps menu and it would come back up and never crash again.

Runs flawelessly on my system pegged at 60 fps and was a really entertaining and challenging game. I really liked the new over the shoulder and duck and cover combat. It was a very fresh approach to the FPS. I'll still wait for GOWII on PC before buying it though. I tried to get used to using the 360 controller at my brothers house but never could adjust to it.

A lot of people didn't have any of those problems. Mine stutters VERY rarely and never crashes. It's a great game with amazing graphics... of course I want the sequel.

Most of my problems were related to games for windows thing...or w/e the pos is called in GoW. If it wasn't in..i would say..it ran pretty flawless even on my end...gets a bit boring the game after awhile though.
