^It's called a good excuse...

Nothing irritates me more than a lack of proper widescreen support, or even worse, a lack of it at all. It's especially insulting when it's a port of a console game which supported widescreen resolutions, like Rainbow Six Vegas, Just Cause or the latest Need for Speed games.

Ridiculous. Thank god for community created hacks and solutions.

Yeah, I read this advantage BS a long time ago at Widescreen Gaming Forums. Those EA guys are really stupid. What about the 360 version of Battlefield 2 Modern Combat?. If this game supports widescreen, what happens with users that have a 4:3 tv?. OMG teh cheetah only buy widescreen. BS. However, congratulations must go to EA for CnC3, this game is a great example of good widescreen support.

And the guy with the $5 idea, I would never pay it, because all games will be widescreen sooner than later. How many MAJOR games have been released this year?. And how many did not support widescreen?. Very few, if any.

It's funny because Red Alert supported Widescreen. That's right, the original C&C Red Alert. You could pretty much change the res any way you wanted.

But yeah, BF2, all EA Sports games, etc. Terrible/no widescreen support.

no thank you
Shadowrun is a great game. Halo 2 would be better if it were a bargain priced game. The multiplayer in Halo 2 is terrible.

Why? What do you see wrong with it? It reminds me of Counter Strike but with magic and better graphics.
