Default this doesnt make sense

I can run COD2 at 800x600 DX7 all low and get about 40FPS with my FX5500 on the P4, Pacific assault lowest settings DX 8 mode 800x600 i cant get 20FPS. I though COD2 was harder on systems lol

LOL No. Even though CoD2 came out a year later, Pacific Assault was a lot more system intensive, remember this was back when PC still had exclusive MoH games, Call of Duty had gone multiplatform.

Pacific Assault uses HDR and advanced shader effects (For it's time). It also used an inhouse engine based of Lithech's Jupiter (FEAR engine I believe).
It was made for the Nvidia 6 series, even then it didn't run that well. Try on your 8800GS system

I did 48-50FPS at max settings 12x10 with forced 4x AA and 16xAF, i figured it would be less hungry COD2 looks better than MOHPA with the bumbmaps and smoke ect, i figured MOHPA wouldnt be as taxing

lol i said COD2 looks better but MOHPA has the better SP game. Personally i felt the duck and your healed was a terrible cop out, MOHPA's system of relying on a medic with only so many times was a great addition that sadly wasnt used again.

No you edited your post afterwards, and no CoD2 doesn't look better. It has lower graphics so it can put more guys on screen at once.
