Hiya people.

I've had the full game for a few days now and am loving it. Plays really quite well.
Loads more atmospheric than F.E.A.R. imo.

Anyway i had the demo for ages before it came out and took these pics, including the graphics options (loads of!) and FRAPS running.

Strangley the full game actually plays smoother still. I can now play with either softshadows on or 4x AA plus 16x and high detail sounds (have onboard) with the same fps as in the demo with the settings in the pics

I'll get some pics of the full game on my second run!

Now that I can't agree with. Every Monolith FPS I've ever played had great atmosphere. In Condemned, though, it's a lot more claustrophobic. Most of either game isn't actually scary, but because the environment in Condemned is far more closed in, it does tend to put you on edge more.

This could have been the ultimate ....if they had allowed your own usage of the forensic tools, and more clues.

Been waiting for a half decent forensics/mystery game, combined with this dark moody serial killer fest it would have been amazing.

Just got the game & i like it so far .. my only complain about it is that you cant carry more than a weapon at a time .. i mean WTF!! at least let us carry a melee & a sidearm.
it sucks that i have to drop my gun just to pick the fireaxe to break a door & come back to take it again

I dunno, I think that adds to the tension.... that feeling of "Blast... what should I take on the journey" sorta thing.

With a X2 4800+, dual 7800GTX 512mb sli on an Asus A8N32 with 2 gig of ram with settings @ 1600x1200 everything max, 4xAA and 16xAF with no soft shadows.....this game runs at 30fps!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!


Come on what's the story. Is pc hardware just a freekin rip off or are games a freekin rip off. Seems like the only games my rig can turn over more than 80fps smoothly on are games that are years old. COD2 ran like crap, Oblivion runs like crap, Condemned runs like crap, and probably every new release from here on in will preforme craptacularly as well. (Quake 4 ran ok, but hey it's just 1 game). Probably need to buys games now and play them in 5 to 10 years time with a system that can run them at a reasonable frame rate.

Also what's the "alt-tab" method people are talking about inorder to set AFR in the sli profile for this game.
