I love how everyone has turned their excessive DRM against them to unlock the game early. LOL

Only thing i'm waiting on is the physical warfare pack email, but I don't expect that just yet.

It just shows, even DICE are not trying hard enough on the PC.

From all the reviews ive seen, it seems that the only criticism is only towards the campaign. Being too short and unoriginal. While the MP aspect is the one scoring all the high points, and thats all that matters.

Anyway the game is very well optimised. My settings defaulted to High and it runs similarly to BC2 on max settings, but looks a lot better of course.

The single player was always going to be a tech demo of sorts, i'm ok with that. It was always about the multiplayer.

Just tried to launch it and the screen is black but I hear the sound. Alt+Tab and I can see it in a window but can't manuever anything. Might be because I have Surround enabled *sigh*. No time to mess with it now. Off to work

Not sure, but the multiplayer does look and play like that.

I've got a 22" viewsonic 120hz LCD and love it for that exact reason.. I can run 1680 with everything on in most games and still get great frames. Rig in sig, Ultra runs 60-80 fps with dips into the 40s. Everything on high I'm getting 90-100s with dips into 70s. Can't really see much difference with ultra and high and since I'm using a single GPU (I think Ultra was meant for dual GPU folk) I'm doing pretty good.

The game is smooth for me though in either high or ultra.
