In Poland, 5 minutes is enough time to give full feedback

The game sucks ass, looks pretty good though. Voice work sucks, AI sucks, jungle is sealed off quite aggressively compared to say Far Cry 2. Boss fights are sad, game feels a bit like Lost Planet with the mech walkers and these things you need to engage. Very few redeeming qualities, retains the cool fire effect from Far Cry 2 and technicolor jungle with plants that come alive and you attack.

Although that sounds cool the atmosphere it creates is pretty much nonexistent. You earn XP for killing plants and bosses which unlock you "slighty" better weapons that do the same thing... it is not my thing that's for sure. Actually it's kinda like a mix between Borderlands, Lost Planet and Far Cry 2. Which sounds enticing but comes off poor.



I uploaded some 1920x1080 max setting screenshots here. Good thing is the game settings look pretty good, PC centric. Has AA, ultra high texture settings, bloom, HDR, vsync etc.

Demo has English, Italian, German, Dutch, Spanish and French Language support

Game is awesome looking in 3D!

For some reason SLI mode isn't working that well in DX10 mode or this game just loves to heat up one of my GPUs a lot more than the other. It seems to work a lot better in DX9 mode. Also, the stereo 3-D seems glitchy to me in DX10. I am a sucker for pretty games in 3D so this turned into a buy for me. Hopefully the performance improves on the retail game and with better drivers.
