I expect something wrong with your settings.
1) Show me a screeshot for your settings
2) Make sure 16xAF is working by forcing if from CP.
3) Show me some screenshots for the indoors/outdoors with the framerate on them & lets see how smooth it is.

Just got it today.

All I can say is I LOVE IT!!

I played for about an hour sofar, havent encountered any bugs, 5.1 works great with the fix, graphics are just superb in my opinion. FPS is 20-40, its not perfect of course but pretty playable. Playing it on Master, AI seems pretty good from what I can tell, comparable with other FPS's. I play with dynamic crosshair off, I dont like the expanding crosshair when moving, also makes aiming a lot better.

Here's some pics of the start of the game, absolute maximum settings.

Sweet shots.

Yep, the Parallax Mapping in this just owns, bricks on walls just look so damn realistic. Sun shadows and grass shadows also really really improve how the outdoors looks.

This is probably the best sky we will see until Crysis comes along with its Volumetric clouds etc.

IGN are smoking something to give this 7.5/10 for graphics. Yes to make the graphics look good u need a very high-end system, but hey, this will probably become a benchmark game for graphics in reviews .

It was running great for a while and then BAM...it just got wrecked and it wouldn't ever run normal again. I have to quit to the desktop and restart the game to get back to normal framerates. :-\
