    So far I am enjoying it. It is definitely harder than Far Cry, and the visuals are just stunning!!!

    Hint:
    Right click to put ducks down without killing them. This is important. Somehow.

    I just tried playing it, ran for a bit, got to the main area (disable the GPS thinger) and i wanted to use the lol, and CRASH!@@!!@!!

    This was running on all Medium at 1680x1050, and it was kinda choppy. I need to upgrade.

    Was looking at the system requirements in the post above and noticed something kinda alarming. In order to run this same game under Vista you need .5GB more of RAM and ~400Mhz more CPU. Now is this because Vista is still awful @ sucking memory and games, or is DX10 that much more of a strain on your system? If the later shouldn't that strain be on your GPU and not your CPU/RAM?

    Oh and I still have to give this a go sometime today, had it since last night. :)

    I finally got it running fine, but at crappy resolu and quality.

    Is this game as hard to beat to everyone else or do I just suck these days? Holy crap is it hard..

    it'll be because of the extra requirements of vista to keep things ticking over in the background.
