Thanks for the info. Have you got it downloaded yet?

It's also available at Gamer's Hell. I had to get in line at fileshack (14 minute wait and still waiting). Gamer's Hell is about full also. I started a download there on a server 98% full and the download speed is horrible (40k/sec).

I was really disappointed with BIA, staying clear of this one.

It looks pretty good and runs well with settings maxed (even HDR) so that's a plus. I haven't done much with it yet though so I can't really comment on gameplay except to say I'm not sure how to aim yet. I guess the circles are supposed to be telling me something.

When someone plays this, can you let me know if they've updated anything on the tech side?

BIA is a three year old game, and it would be a shame for Gearbox to release yet another "could-be-fantastic-but-isn't" game that's stuck in 2002.

The first BIA was one of the biggest disappointments of my life. I can't express how badly I wanted that game. Gearbox suck at coding games. A good story in a video game is pointless unless it's backed by some decent gameplay. Good gameplay (which BIA had) is worthless unless it's backed by at least a moderate level of modern technology.

EDIT: Still looks bad, but if you say it runs well? That's at least a step in the right direction - or maybe it's cause you have two 7800's

Yeah, it could be. I keep forgetting my performance may not be what everyone else sees. Anyway, below are the performance options. Under the video options they just have the normal stuff, although I didn't see any option for AA. It looks like the main technological feature is HDR/soft lighting.

Okay, I need to qualify my earlier statement. It runs really well in skirmish mode but in story mode, I sometimes drop into the upper 20s when using 1600x1200, 16xAF and HDR on. It's marginal.
