I have been playing it for about 10 hours now.

Pros:
-Unique visual presentation that I have not seen in other games. Environments are very diverse graphically. Excellent lighting and particle effects, on par with Metro 2033.
-Good weapon handling and visceral combat.
-Diverse characters with their unique style of fighting. AI in general seems to be pretty good.
-A lot of collectibles, weapons upgrades, different ammo types for some weapons, engineering of various tools.

Cons:
-Low resolution textures.
-So far I have not seen daytime changes or weather changes.
-Auto racing feels like it was hacked on, some races are frustrating because progress cannot be saved. But it could be me as I am not a driver type of person.
-Vehicle combat feels a bit clunky as weapons cannot be aimed, it uses auto-aim system, otherwise the vehicle needs to be moved/turned to aim.
-Lack of advanced graphical settings.
-Not realistic bullet ballistics.
-The game does NOT use the full potential of this engine which is probably the best out there right now, only Metro 2033 engine can compete with it.

In general it is a mission driven game play, it reminds me of Bioshock and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series where you have to complete tasks to earn money to buy stuff to advance further. If they release good modding tools and SDK, the gaming community could develop this game further.

Sounds good , got it coming for Monday.


Curious how it will look with my HP 2475 and the Evga 570 and how game play is with my new system.

I see your using a Dell widescreen at high resolution.

This game should run on either of your computers. Allegedly, it adjusts visuals by auto detecting your hardware. There was a new patch released yesterday they added Vsync, Texture Cache and Anisotropic filtering options. Massive landscapes and indoors look beautiful at 2560x1600 as long as you do not look at objects up close because textures are very low quality for this engine.

Rage driving feels like I just went back to 1996.
Note to developers: Borderlands driving is how it should be done.

With laughable physics, questionable controls, and copious amounts of input lag?
