when i first played this i loved it, but yeah too many cutscenes. more a movie than a game. they should have just used the game engine for those too.

the shooting gets monotonous

Your 590gtx will handle it easy, on GeForce.com you can see what fps u will get. Sweet wish it was out here on the 5th!! Man can't wait for this game!

This game works perfectly in 3D Vision Surround as well. I don't know why NVIDIA gave it a Not Recommended rating. You just have to turn off HDAO and leave it at SSAO. Everything else you can crank up and the 3D effect remains flawless. There's even in-game 3D options if it detects 3D Vision, like convergence and separation. It's been a while since there was a game that worked so well out of the box for 3DVS, I think this is one I definitely have to show off to my friends.

I asked cuz someone said it took a while to go through the 4 DVDs. I guess it should be still faster than downloading.
Now just gotta wait till the price drops. I don't know if I wanna pay $60 for just 6hrs of game play?

They just need to add Aspect ratio options.. I can't play at 1680 due to 4:3 stretch, max is too fat.

I'm glad I bought the game. Here I thought it was going to be a short campaign and I am 24hrs in. I am also on the last chapter as it appears. The characters look to chubby though.
