It does look good, but not "runs like crap at minimum settings" good.

Most of what makes it look so good is the lighting anyway. Its the artistic style of the game that looks realistic, there really isn't anything technical going on that warrants performance that low.

Considering that it only uses roughtly 700MB of your 2GB system ram and totally ignores your other CPU core, plus doesnŽt properly "flush" old textures/shaders out of the VRAM of the 8800 cards (game issue or driver issue ), IŽd say it actually handicaps itself quite nicely.

I know the devs will keep releasing patches, even OFP was pretty horrible at v1.0, but my major issue with ArmA is actually the player character and weapon movement, the AI issues and extremely boring/crappy single player campaign.

Nice. I'll be picking up a copy as soon as it is released.

By then I should have my new rig sporting a Q6600+8800GTX SLi up and running. That means I'd have to get three copies for some mad MP LAN action!

Can't wait!

performance looks promising in that review, although I can't tell what kind of CPU and ram he's running..

Last I remember reading about this game, the visibility distance slider can really cripple systems if you set it all the way to the max... That Spanish review site put theirs till a little over halfway....

wonder how this game compares to graw.

for the moment , use the catalyst 6.7 drivers if your running ATI.

because all other recent drivers suffer of an handles leak. and create stuttering
