This is an amazing. Starbreeze has proven itself to be a top notch developer (waiting for Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena) I truly hope this will not be ported to PC... Consoles need more exclusives.

The only reason I won't want this to be released on PC's is because I'm going to have to buy the game again...

Having thought about it, not sure I would like that tbh.

Different games need different levels, for e.g i'd have more contrast for Darkness, but less for say Forza 2 with perhaps more brightness.

Having to change the system setting between games would drive me nuts.

Believe so, Never really messed with the gamma due to it always being spot on. Hell Full RGB made it even better.

Yeah, i've been i've been on the CRT bandwagon for a long time now too, but i finally broke down and bought a 22' widescreen LCD. So far i can't think of a single category that i prefer my old CRT.

I'm about halfway through the game and i'm not seeing any screen tearing to speak of, and i'm definitely not seeing any framerate issues. Hell, even my black levels are really damn nice on this new monitor.

The game looks great, plays great, overall i'm pretty impressed. Starbreeze is turning out to be one of the better developers out there.

Bought this game last week and finished it today and wow. This is the best $10 I have ever spent. Atmosphere(the subway system is done so well), graphics, dialog and everything else was just great. Also that fact you could sit there with your girl and watch To kill a Mockingbird all the way through was probably the most impressive thing I have seen in years. This game is always on sale for like $10 Newegg or Amazon...buy it.

And you get an achievement from doing that (watching the movie with your girlfriend). :: But yeah, that game is awesome. Too bad this game is so underrated. The graphics, mo cap animations, dialog, everything are impressive and I believe it's one of first wave of 360 games right?

I can't wait for the sequel (hopefully if they're still working on it).

It's not the first wave. Not by far. Came out not too long ago.
