Yes, I was quite disappointed, especially after my glee that the Splinter Cell demo actually ran on my ancient box. A 64 MB video card? Ack! I really need to upgrade...

Cheers,

I don't see anything in the screenshots that justifies such high specs.

Yes, I saw those specs last night and I somehow think that they are just boasting really...

Runs about 30-60 fps with 2x AA and 16x aniso at 1024x768. There is nothing special about the graphics at all.

Yeah but you guys are failing to mention the content. This is one of the coolest games ever!

It has the slo-mo from payne, the powers of blade, a hot chick, bladed weapons (and guns), oh yeah and dimemberment. All that and it looks at least up to date with current games, graphically.

One thing is sad though, it won't be comming out 'till march. And hopefully by then we will all have better looking games (ala DX9)

Um seriously maybe they are just being honest. Think about it. When the DOOM 3 comes out Carmak could easily put the highest end of every peice of hardware as his recommended setup. While this game is surely NOT Doom 3 every jungle bunny and his brother wants to run every game at 1600X1200 and have 4AA full anso etc etc etc.

What I am trying to say is when it comes to pc games if you want all the eye candy 90% of the time it take the latest hardware to get it without a performance hit.

Nice concept of a game, controls felt too "twitchy" tho, I couldn't accurately control her, felt odd, and I never saw any slo-mo, do you have to hit some button?

i suppose 512 RAM is resonable, because although a little steep compared to most game recommendations, RAM is considerably cheap

but 2.53ghz... that's ridiculous! few people have above 2ghz these days, or even 1.5ghz

sad
