So it's a fun game. Needed a few tweaks in the INI for me to find it playable. Max smoothed FPS = 120, disabled mouse smoothing, etc. Typical Unreal 3 stuff.

I'm really tired of U3 games that give me a headache with the way they play though. Its sad that consoles are still holding us back with this old engine that lacks native AA and is capped at 62 fps. Its so evident that this engine is the best that consoles can handle since the PC chews it up and spits it out at 4 times the fps the console does. I'm to the point where I hate the engine and cringe when I see the logo.

Gameplay-wise its a cross between GOW and Serious Sam. The whip and kick are cool additions and once you get the hang of them, its a complete aerial-bourne carnage game.

U3 should be retired and buried now. I've seen enough.

Nope. Mass effect 1/2, Arkham Asylum and Mirror's Edge are shining examples of what can be done with that engine when the developers leave the "EZ gears of war clone" box unchecked.

Rarely is it actually the engine's fault. A prime example would be the 7 year old source engine that thanks to fake factory, looks just as good, if not better than most current games.

Anyways, personally, I really like the way the gears games and this game feel/play. It's actually really more fun to me to have the more animated camera view and more brutal feeling combat actions. It gives the sensation that you're actually doing legit damage rather than feeling stagnant and stiff.

Horrible performance. 16 fps on high, if i add 8xAA it goes down to 8 fps. Even when lowering everything to medium i get about 25 - 30 fps.. W. T .F ? Btw, i run 16x10 1440x900 res, is this the reason?

The reason is: You have to apply the latest patch (it applies automaticly)
And I think games hates any other res than 16:9.

soo00 try 1280x720 or 1920x1080. Also aa is very hurting performance.

Just enable use nvidia correct aspect ratio in nv control panel So You will get black 16:9 bars up and bottom

Big time performance bug running 16:9 resolutions. Running at 16:10 1920 x 1200 at 8XAA almost doubled my frame rate and it never drops below 62 FPS now.

yeah I just automatically set it to 1920x1200 since it's my screen's native resolution and went from there. Like all unreal engine games, it runs butter smooth at max settings.

Dude, 1440x900 is 16:10 as i run. Can't go higher... But can try lower res, but hell i wanna run native res on my LCD.

My gpu GTX 295 should be fine lol. Why would this game be more demanding than crysis or metro? IT's a UE3 game ffs..

The problem is not with 16:9 resolution only, it's either random or resolution specific. 1680x1050 doesn't work properly and that's 16:10.

Just go lower with fixed aspect ratio in Control Panel and you'll find one, that works.
