I haven't bought this game yet, but after playing the demo and watching the Gamespot review, I think it'll be my next gaming purchase. I am just curious though about how it runs on people's computers.

If you could post some of your specs (all I'm interested in is CPU / RAM / V.Card) and tell me how the game runs, such as what resolution you play on and any graphical frills you have enabled, that would be very helpful. If there's a way to plug in a command into the console so you can view your FPS, or if you have Fraps and can give me a ballpark average of what you get, that'd be perfect.

I'd be buying this game for the MP, but I don't want my PC to be choking at 1280x1024 with the system you see in my signature. So post away! :)

Oh, and just wanted to add I did play the demo, but I could not change ANY of the video/sound options without it immediately crashing, and so it ran at the default 800x600 and it looked terrible, but played extremely smooth (of course). So I haven't been able to judge the performance for my own PC based from the demo.

Singleplayer textures on "Extra" settings
1920 x 1080
AA 4x
17-30FPS
Only have lag on night missions

Multiplayer (even though its pointless) Textures on high.
1920 x 1080
AA 4x
20-40FPS
Runs smooth, but the servers dont.

System specs are below.

Everything on highest setting (I may have set shadows low/medium) w/ 4xAA & AF @ 1280x1024. Played through the whole demo with 40+ FPS, even in the really packed areas with lots of fighting going on. Specs in my sig.

That high resolution must be killing your performance or something. :x I instantly get this little buzzer that goes off in my head once I dip below 25-30 FPS, and it drives me crazy.

Everything Maxxed (Extra setting) except for "smooth smoke edges" or something like that
1680x1050
4X AA

No numbers for you but it runs perfectly smooth and quick.

Specs in my sig.

I'm Playing online at 1024x768 no AA no AF
-shadows low
-detail medium
-water detail low

game looks ok but I'm getting 40-70fps and sometimes more with fraps.

Your card should run it better than mine so even at this resolution it should look good with some eye candy turned on.

The game looks great. And loads and runs surprisingly well online. Loads maps in about 5 seconds and holds 75fps for me while in action
