Hmm...weird, because it shows up on my Steam (I live in Finland), maybe it's UK only thing.

On another note would you guys be interested in doing a time trial/speedrun leaderboards here on NVnews? I know the game has internal leaderboards but AFAIK you can't filter them so it shows only certain people.

got the game last night and its so much fun..Maybe its my familiarity after playing 2 chapters on the 360, but I breezed through 3 chapters in one sitting. Only issue is I cant enable physx(thanks ATI !!!)

Also does anyone remember how to disarm the cops, I know its in the tutorial but I didnt pay attention.

the only gripes i have with this game is that its way too short, story isn't too good (e-surance commericals) and combat isn't that satisfying (too much uneeded combat imo). However, I love the running and parkour, those levels where you were left alone to run and jump were really enjoyable.

Giving the game a go and am mixed so far about what I think about it. Even with Steam already having the game patched and using Physx 9, I'm still getting slow downs in certain areas. There is nothing in this game that should cause any slowdowns whatsoever (it's anime cartoon rendering for crying out loud). This game should be screaming fast ALL the time (it is if unchecking Physx). Movement is not as smooth as it could be and I'll blame that on it being a port. I don't like the blurring so I changed some settings in the ini to get rid of it which made it a lot better for me. Vsync doesn't seem to work because there is a lot of tearing with it on or off in the game menu. I wish she was a little more bad ass, she's kind of a wuss actually compared to other feminatally game characters. Put her up against Lara or Rayne and she would get her ass kicked rather badly, heh heh (she can't go up against multiple enemies very well). Game is kinda fun so far so I'll keep playing. Maybe the game will grow on me more as I get used to it.

EA does not want their games sold through Steam in the UK. It has nothing to do with Steam as a service, they can only sell where they're allowed to.
