I took the game at face value after reading comments here after release. It is a dated game by todays standards, but it still has some nice graphic qualities, the physics are nice, and there are some cool fx. I can tell its running slower than one would expect, but its playable and I have everything turned on @1024. (ath2400+,512pc3200,9500pro) I have yet to get into the later indoor levels so Ill see then, and maybe try some more arguments. You would think porting a game from a console thats essentially a PC would yield some better performance. Gameplay is ok, its not horrid, has some fun moments. Its not game of the year, but its not a 0 either.

I dont mind much that theres no innovation in the genre, its Judge Dredd Damnit! You get to shoot ppl with a Lawgiver! Ive always wanted to do that. Now to be realistic the game needs a little polish and some ai tweaks, but Its fun. I would have liked to see a bit more over the top special effects though, it is based on a comic book.

Yea IL-2 should be newbie enough, my roomate never played a sim before. I turned down all the realism and set him out, gave him pointers, and in his second 1 on 1 he got the kill. But if your looking for something else, the older janes sims, like USAF and IAF(israeli air force) could work well.

Heh I agree the config thing is retarded, wtf? But I was never intending to buy the game for pc, I will be getting it for PS2 like I did the past 3 years.

lol how the hell does the revolver on thier main page eject brass??

Actually now that I look at it, they are full bullets, not just the shell casings, are they falling out of the guns?? or just floating in the air for some reason??

hehe, now that I look at the picture more I realize the revolvers hes firing are way too modern to be set in that era, ok Im done picking apart thier artwork.

"I wouldn't worry about it. Its probably just some rumor or something. But what isn't a rumor is AA is a sucky game. Counterstrike is better."

"and on a related topic... Star Wars Galaxies apparently goes live today. So we can all experience running around with light sabers ourselves.."

hehe this could lead to another whole thread on some of the shortcommings of SWG, in this case no not all can experience running around with light sabers, in fact Im not sure who can.

Back to the movie I liked EP2, I agree with blue it was better than ep1 and makes me look forward to 3. I dunno when oscar winning performances were important to a star wars movie.

You should change your name to Dr.Negative. I still think the game is fun. It may be tribes-like, but Im sure glad theres no goddamned jetpack and skiing crap, Im sure most ppl liked that, but I despised it. The vehicles in PS play a much bigger role as well. Playing PS with an organized group makes the game 200 times better.
