Bullet time made for consoles = no good cheap auto aim FPS.

Who compared it to Crysis? Nobody did.

I said it was the best looking game since Crysis IMO. If anyone can think of another title that I am forgetting, list it. Crysis still looks much better than Call of Juarez, its just that I cannot think of another title that looks close to what Crysis achieved. Stalker, ArmA2 and CoJ are up there, but I still think CoJ looks better.

Some of the later levels look pretty darn good. I wish there were a way to make the LOD a little less aggressive though. People have been saying the game is short too but I think it's quite a bit longer than the first one.

I thought the demo was cool... is it worse than the demo in some way? Is the story bad? I didn't watch the story in the demo, just the gameplay.

If you even enjoyed the demo then I have no idea what illness you have. Something is definitely wrong with you.

Just got this game this afternoon. So far it's brilliant. Anyone who doesn't play this because it's 'a console port' is missing out on what could be one of the best this year. Everything feels right and it's one of the first FPS with a decent cover system that doesn't put you into a 3rd person view.

Techland. Use this engine and make a new Chrome game. Post haste.

I don't get this port nonsense, I think people are confusing an organic, meaty feeling with what they think is a port. A game doesn't have to be sterile cold to be a PC game...

Gunfights with quick draw

What's up with the mouse not firing the gun when I've beaten him to the draw and painted him with the red cursor? I've selected 2 the right-hand pistol

Any PC tips please or even a PC cheat to avoid these gunfights that pepper the storyline, it's that bad I'm dreading any guy in PC black turning up

I have played to Chapter 11 and I like it a lot! The graphics are great most of the time and it runs very smooth and never gets below 30 fps no matter what happens in the game on my Q6600 Geforce 260 machine.

Same, I have a Q6600 and 260GTX but in SLI, the game looks amazing and runs great. Techland did well to take advantage of the 4 cores.

You stand alone here. Tried the VC demo and bought it the next day, great game. I don't really understand what complaints you could have with it.

As for CoJ, I'm on the fence with this one. Reviews and screenshots look good and I would love to play a western-themed shooter, but it seems like the kind of game I'd play through once and never touch again.

No denying the game LOOKS great but it just shouts console at you all day, wtf is up with no prone & silly stars all over the screen?

meh, i'm not saying its crap as clearly it's not, i'm just biased i guess, gimme realism all day.
