    Anybody else play it? It was a lot longer than most demo's, and is actually pretty cool. Graphics are great, but the controls can be a pain to get used to.

    I tried it out. It ran ok on my 2 year old computer which was impressive (AMD 4400+, 7800GT) while still maintaining a high visual level. I'd almost upgrade just for this game but going to Vista could be a deal breaker.

    Gave it a try and my video card gets hot with the settings on medium. Need better cooling. :( It runs ok on my 4800+ X2 @ 2.6, 2 gig Ram, 7900GS @ 560/ 1400.

    I think I have finally found something to make me need to upgrade. :( Not too soon though.

    At 1440x900, with everything on LOW, my system plays it pretty good. Medium...might as well be watching a replay in slow motion on television.

    So my P4 3.2HT, 2GB Ram, and 7800GS AGP just doesn't cut it. *SIGH* Looks like it's time to slowly start upgrading.

    My C2de6700, 2 gigs of ram and 8800gts barely runs on maxed, on high it runs Ok. need more ram. Fakefactoriy's CM5 for ep2 is out for vista64bit and it eats 2 gigs for a snack.

    Man...did I ever get fucked when I bought my 7800GS. I've been doing a little reading and I should have waited a month or two before upgrading. FiringSquad rated my 7800GS more like a 6600 stock card in terms of overall performance, and ATI's X1950 AGP was more like a full on X1950 PCI-e card. Crap.

    I wonder if the HD 2600XT AGP would help me out at all...hmmmmm...

    I want to try this on a GT as well. My machine isn't doing well with the demo. i get excellent FR with settings on medium....W-T-F!!!? My 340mb card may as well be a flippin 6800gt. I won't be buying the game until I get this shit sorted out. Vista is definately suspect in these issues my friends.
