According to GS the mouse/key is not so hot:

You will want to break out an Xbox 360 controller if you want to get the most out of the experience. The keyboard-and-mouse setup is decent but occasionally awkward, and it can't compete with the interesting (but intuitive) gamepad controls.

I was playing this earlier today, I couldn't get AA to be applied. 8xAA @ 1920x1200 i could still see the jaggies! With Vsync on and off, I got a lot of tearing (steady 60fps though). And during the second stage, where they are chasing you through the buliding (when aren't they really?) when they shoot through the glass the framerate crawled to 9fps and wouldn't pick back up.

I alt-tabbed and the game crashed, reloaded the level and again when they shot through the glass the framerate tanked. My only guess for the drop would be Physx's, I am running 181.20, and have phsyx and sli enabled.

I plan on re-installing (not due to the game, but for a clean install) today so I will try it out again. But the game sure is bright!

Yea, the physx stuff dropped me to 30's, but then went back up to 62 (cap). Single 260 GTX with Q6600 in sig. I hate all this eyecandy when it comes at such a cost. Also, be sure to update to 1.01 for the physx random lockup fix.

I think I'm just gonna disable physx not worth the performance hit. Using the latest physx from yesterday and 181.20 in Windows7 x86 here.

Had 185.something drivers installed game kept crashing, installed 182.something and it runs ok now. One thing though, it seems too bright, with 185.** it was okay and kept changing the brightness at the right times, now it's too bright.

Also - like one guy here said, this game is definitely not for everyone, but those who get into it will like it a lot as it is very different, fresh.

EDIT: that's way too bright, wtf? It was not that bright before the 182.** drivers.
