I ve been reading reviews, supposedly the main campaign is 15 hours long.

Installing now.. screenshots at 2048x1536 within the hour.

Also if you download it from EA's online store, you get a free download of the original alice.

Screens,we need screens.Actually it is a must buy for me.The first one was excellent,this looks darker and more mature.But a few new screens would be nice too.

Screens!!

1600x1200 Re-sized from 2048x1536. All settings max, PHYSX on high. This sometimes causes a little bit of slowdown (-5 to 10 fps for 2 seconds or so) when using a certain weapon, however the effects like paper on the ground, the jumping and floating effects do not affect performance. Frame rate seems locked at 30.

I brought it through EA's new store "Origin". Pain in the ass. Had to update EA download manager, sign in, set up origin account, then after it downloaded (at slower than steam speeds) it had to "check release date online". Sigh. Plus $3.50 in taxes. (direct to drive was exactly the same price, also had tax added on to price). But got a cd-less copy of the original Alice in the deal.

Well how is the game? I bought Dragon Age 2, Crysis 2 and only played a few hours of them before getting bored. Is this game any different?

Any word on how it runs on ATI?
