Unless you have some magical copy of the game that is different from everyone else's, it suffers from being both cropped and stretched, as shown here.

Yeah. I have the magic version. That and as people are reporting 1680x1050 seems to be unaffected.

1680x1050 is just as cropped and stretched... look at the target reticule.

nekro, velvet. It's k guys. Relax take a load off. You guys are such console fanboys. So PC is not perfect. I still think it's a good port and the best version of the game.

Just got around to playing this from Steam. Its a fun game, but definitely suffers from the previously mentioned widescreen issues and stretching. And when I run it at 1080p to my HDTV, it even seems to cut off the top and bottom part of the screen, and I can't even see my ammo counter when reloading.

Also, why is it that since Gears of War, when you sprint in games you seem to run around like a drunken idiot without much control over where you are going? It just doesn't seem as hard to do a 90 degree turn without running into a wall in real life.

Supposedly that is how people run when under fire... I have my doubts.
