I played the first level yesterday. I am in the same boat everything maxed 60 FPS vsync. And I also think the graphics are a little under whelming. But then again If you go from Metro 2033 most games will fell under whelming lol. Ill have to play more to see how the story line and game play are over all. I would rather have a game With good graphics a good story line and good game play that is real smooth than Great amazing graphics with ok game play and a good story that has up and down performance any day. So I guess it depends on what your comparing it to. Crysis has better graphics and good game play with an ok story. With Crysis I find it has sub par replay value ( I dont play multilayer so thats part of it). Metro 2033 looks awesome and on my rig it plays well and I like the story, however it has some very frustrating parts that make it hard to play for a long time. (guess thats both good and bad for me lol)So I do like the game play if the story ends up being real good it will be easy to forget that the graphics are not cutting edge.
I was playing games with an IGP about 6 months ago, so as long as it doesn't look like a giant mess, I'll be ok with the graphics. Alternate history scenarios always interest me, so I am definitely looking forward to this. Thanks for the mini-review, Carc369!
I just finished the game (played for about 5 hrs with a break because i had to go to school). Like I said the graphics aren't that great but like cburke82 said, once you play metro 2033 expectations for games increase dramatically. Maybe if I hadn't played Metro 2033 I'd be satisfied with these graphics, idk.
The story line was good and was a fun game to play. Some parts were an obvious COD knock-off (breaking into a room and slow motion shooting everyone in it) but overall it was a good game. Wished it was a little bit longer because it seemed kinda short.
I took off Vsync and was averaging around 80-90 fps @ 1920x1080 with a Radeon 6950 unlocked with everything maxed out including AA. So a 6850 or equal should suffice in order to play at the same resolution at maxed settings.
Yea I get Dragon Age 2 tomorrow. We'll see how well that plays at maxed settings. Also, I'll be getting Crysis 2 next week. This month is the best gaming month for me .
I might get Shogun 2 as well but I've spent over $150 on PC games this month. Idk if I want to spend anymore lol.
Only been gaming on a PC for a month or so. So far iv blasted through Crysis, Crysis Warhead. Playing Home Front and Metro 2033 . And after playing the demo I really want Just Cause 2 lol And I realy cant wait for Skyrim that one should be EPIC
