it's fun, but as mentioned the side missions are all very similar, I dont' even really see the need in doing them, which makes the game really short, I beat it once and started to play through it again but don't really have the desire with GTA IV and COD 4 to piddle with.

a cool video showcasing the new things in the pc version once again affirming that consoles are where games go to be final beta tested till they are moved to the better platform :-b (atleast when the porting company is on the ball that is and they come to the PC)

can't wait for this to hit and on my birfday to boot ;-D

So yeah I picked it up for PC last week and am playing right now. The combat system is amazingly good. It's almost like a 3rd person shooter, no need to even pause action with the hotkeys and how that's all set up...

Now I just need a new computer so I can max out the graphics... :-D

yeah it is pretty solid. you might wanna check out this guide as it may help to optimize somethings in the .ini files to help get you some better visuals. i can run it on the highest settingsand you still get the jaggies not matter what. seems the ut3 engine wasn't set up for AA setting inherently in the engine itself so it's something you have to force and even when you do it isn't perfect but it's better than standard.

i'm still on my first play through and im close to 60 hours in as i've just taken my time and done all of the side quests you can and just running around exploring. no need to rush for me.i've heard you can get through in about 25 hours or so.

Yeah I'm about 20 hours in and I'm nowhere near done. It's a really fun different style game. I like the music too, it really feels almost like playing a movie.
