DoF needs to be there, but not over done...just need a very little touch to it. i really hate when they go overboard, one of the reasons why i disabled it in mw2...just silly.

is the game more linear than STALKER? I like games not so much "spread out" like in STALKER. Not a huge fan of exploring....

Gameplay i would compare it to Bioshock. Its pretty much linear and little to no exploration.

Linear just like Half-Life 2, Bioshock, F.E.A.R. etc.

There is a bit exploration of course if you want to find plenty of ammo (games currency)

I like searching every nook and cranny. It's fine if you don't though, I just like having lots of ammo to sell/buy when encountering merchants.

I am surprised how much their is to explore considering it's a linear experience overall.

You should check it out bob it's a good game. Lots of atmosphere, good story telling and gameplay is solid.

Yea cool. In bioshock, I look everywhere as well. It's just in STALKER you have to literally go to different maps and very long ways to find some things that really have no relevance, but if you don;t do it, I feel like I am missing a major part of the game.
Once the BFBC2 fever wears off, I will probably get this. It would run decently on my setup?

Our comps are similar and I run it on high with no AA, get 50-60fps most of the time with annoying drops to the 30s and rarely the 20s when there are wacky special effects.

10. I tried 9 but it didn't seem too different fps wise, and noticeable less pretty.
