Is the lighting/shadowing unified in this game? If so...the ability to do unified soft shadows everywhere puts it above D3 technologically in my book

you can enable aa, but only via the cfg files by editing them. Any one that doesn't pick up this game is missing out hugh...Tried it on the xbox and it was off the hook...

It's a great game. Very immersive. I love that they render your entire body, your not just some floating camera like just about every other FPS. The way it moves feels very realistic as well.

Oddly AA does work on my X800XT PE ATI control panel for the game.

Well I bought it, and guess what?

The ****ing install doesn't work. I paid 30 dollars out of my goddamned cash, and spent an hour getting it, and it crashes on the first disc install.

Wonderful! Great job Starbreeze! Go **** yourselves with your stupid Doom3 rip-off renderer and probably sub-par game.

Back to Doom 3...which at least INSTALLS.
