Wow, my maxed out game does NOT look like those very nice screens. Are we sure Codemasters didn't do this game? Heh.

What's the difference? Those looked like max settings to me... unfortunately I have to set the lighting, shadows and ambient settings lower to run the game at all well. I have tested it at max though and it looks like those screens pretty much.

Again, the compressed shots posted in this thread do not do the crisp, vibrant look of the game justice.

Maybe it's the time of day lighting. But everything is looks more crisp, vibrant and sharp in the bullshots. I've tried to take nice screens and none look like the bullshots posted. The bullshots are at some sort of golden hour or stormy, maybe I haven't seen either of those lightings yet.

Well again, that's a jpeg. The only thing those PR shots have is a crispness and vibrancy our shots lack, but I think that's mostly the compression in the images.

In any event, I don't think the shots are off enough to get upset about... all PR shots are massivley upscaled and have tremedously high AA and AF and all that jazz.

I have yet to see any blue sky or puffy clouds or sun. Do they ever come out? The sky is just a white blur all the time.

It does seem hazy and gray all the time, doesn't it? I have seen it nice and sunny though...

You have a 360, rent that version. That'll at least give you an idea and until they fix the PC version, the 360 version is probably the best version to have.

It does, well I have 360 version of Saints 1 and PS3 of Saints 2 and one reason I like Saints over GTAIV is the fact the world is often bright and sunny and a little futuristic. Nice contrast to the violence in the streets.

BTW if any of you have a 360, I recommend playing the first game. Story will make much more sense, especially the bonus missions.

The game seems a little more stable with the new 181.20 drivers... not fixed by any means, but more stable. I played with everything maxed except shadow maps for a while and only had a couple super horrible frame drops.

ugh, just tried it

no performance issues but god damn its one pile of dung, awful animation, crap physics, damn ugly even with everything on full and all, many things are a direct copy and poorly copied at that from gta, makes me feel ill playing it with the free cam, also feels way too chaotic too also terrible vehicle handling

it feels and plays like an xbox 1 game on budget

how can anyone like this, get some taste! GTA4 is gold compared to this fools gold pile of crud

Play it on console. Game is great there. Or have a word with the team responsible for the shocking port. Then the QA team who let it pass.
