Ok. I'm back and I've installed the game. However, I can't get it to start. It says I must have an internet connect but obviously I do. The firewall isn't blocking it either. I don't understand.

SSAA is fat better than msaa . reduce resolution, and love your nice picture ! if not, i presume you own a ****ing ****ty LCD screen . :/

I give up. I can't get it to work. It says I need an internet connection, but I have one. It's crap like this that is the reason PC gaming is dying.

I know SSAA is better than MSAA. I just wanted to test the MSAA modes. I actually gave up on trying to get MSAA to work for the reason that you just stated. Even if it works, because I'm getting great performance at 1366x768 with 2x2 SSAA, I'd likely not use MSAA. I've got a 37" Aquos 720p. It was one of the best 720p LCDs when it was released. Anyway, the game looks fantastic.

lets get back to the topic, for console vs pc discussion there is that special thread.
Sorry, I didn't mean to start a console vs. PC debate, just stating I find the PC graphics dissapointing.

Very odd. After trying everything I could think of to get this to run in Vista, I tried installing it in XP. Now it works.

I checked the official forums and others are having the same problem. In Vista the game says I need an internet connection and that it can't start.
