At least it supports AA. I'm curious to see how it runs. Doesn't look as good as GTA IV, I have a feeling it's going to be a really crappy GTA IV clone that doesn't measure up anyways.

BTW, Those are prealpha as in before the game released on consoles... if you wana judge what the game looks like just look at the final console version and imagine it with AA and sharper textures but the over all graphics stay the same.
Nod. I thought it was pretty well known SR2 is not the superior visual game when compared to GTA4.

what was that game that took place in Mexico? Was sort of GTA/Max Payne rip-off but was a blast to play.

BTW, another fine customer relation launch on Steam I see. Lying seems to be the norm nowadays I guess. Nothing there at all currently.

I traded in my copy of GTA4 for SA2 and I couldn't be happier... I think its a more enjoyable game with alot more variety then GTA4 has to offer.

But it was suppose to be avail for preload. Here's the official report:
Quote:
OK All - I've received back some news.

North America / Central America / South America
The game is shipping today, January 5th. Any retailers which have the overnight shipping option will have it in-store tomorrow. I do not have a list of these retailers. Any retailer which does not have that option, I do not have the dates and you will need to contact them to gather a specific date.

The game will be available for digital pre-download on Steam starting tonight (Jan. 5th) around 9 PM PST. You will not be able to actually play the game until Steam officially opens it up around 9 AM PST on Tuesday, Jan. 6th. These are times set by Steam, not by us, so if they miss the exact time (they're normally pretty good about it though), just sit back, grab a drink, and wait a little bit longer.

Europe
The game will have a street date of January 23rd, as listed by the THQ-Games website. Some retailers (GAME / Play.com) have another street date of January 30th at this time.
I think that Mexican game you guys might be thinking of is Total Overdose??

Yeah, I saw that press release yesterday and was all excited to start my download last night... then the game never appeared. Bummer.

The game is like a Valve title, retail copies just activate a Steam version, so they should really have it up ASAP this morning.
