I agree - it's a great game! And contrary to opinion based upon these screen shots, the graphics aren't bad at all. Everything animates beautifully and looks quite good in motion.

I agree. The water in a game such as Severance BoD looked much better.

Well, it's a console port folks - perhaps something in SM 3.0 made adding the effect far easier? The console versions are stuck with the regular water. I agree it's rather pathetic for something that requires SM 3.0, but no one would have said boo otherwise if it never had it considering some of the shoddy ports the PC has seen (hello True Crime? Ah, lame game anyways). An additional graphical effect being added to a console port is almost unheard of.

Don't know if I'll like it, but I welcome it - platformers are so rare on the PC, the PC needs a more diverse gaming selection. Sure, Far Cry looks better - so what? You want to make a platformer that needs a 9800 Pro to run smoothly?

The game is only $20, so somehow I don't think they're expecting it to compete with the most recent FPS.
