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.
harsh.....Before you go pissing anymore of a fit , why don't try a firmware and chipset driver update. Also make sure any background apps are off, especially Anti-Virus.

you wont need AA . the game runs pretty good @1600x1200,8xAF on my 6800GT/P4:3Ghz system .. so it should be even smoother on yours !

*Update
I've been playing with the Extreme G 70.90 drivers and FSAA does now work in the "shader 2.0" mode but FSAA remains broken running "shader 2.0++"
Performance is better with 4xFSAA in 2.0, than with no FSAA in 2.0++

I can't wait to play this on PC .... I loved the XBOX version, still have that somewhere....and bearing in mind the XBOX is getting on a bit now, graphically its astounding for a past-gen console.

Even tho there will be no shocks/suprises in playing the PC version, i'd love to do it again ....esp the part in the tunnels with the toxic waste....Oooh you peeps who never played it are gonna love that.

Yeah, I have the Xbox version as well but haven't gotten very far yet so I'll probably play on the PC now that I have that version. It's really nice being able to play the game in high-res. I really like this game and it looks and sounds great!

Like SH64, I have to use SM 2.0 though. The 2.0++ (soft shadow) mode causes way too much of a framerate hit (like 12 fps or so 2.0++ mode vs 45 fps or so 2.0 mode).

I posted these in the screenshot thread also but that thread can be a pain to load so here they are. From the very beginning so no spoilers.

OMG what engine is this based on? Those sneaky swedes come up with the goods.

When I saw they made a game of the movie I thought "Yeah yeah another licensed crap title, do they think were that stupid". The name actually hurts this game I think

Thats like Doom3 with an actual game inside it, and better graphics

Yep graphics looks much like Doom3 with enhanced textures & some other features like self-shadowing .
in the gameplay terms .. Riddick pwns Doom3 fare 'n square .

all in all .. the game deserves its own place next to the big three D3/HL2/FC .
ooops i mean the big four now !

Ah holy crap guys! I can't get past the opening cut scene. When it moves from the Snow planet to a space ship, all of a sudden it slows down to like 1 frame per minute...per minute!! What the heck is going on? Every other game I have runs flawlessly!

HEELLLPPP!!!!!

Turn off AA mate

Make sure you have the 2.0 option selected and not the 2.0++. AA+2.0++ are a huge no no!
