Those number are not very encouraging. I know the game looks good, but not nearly good enough to justify those insanely low scores, especially considering that it's a linear game.

i agree. like wtf. did they just skip optimizing this or something???

I agree as well, those numbers are pretty bad.

My 8800GT manages just 20FPS average at 1280x1024, which is just ridiculous for a linear game. Talk about poor optimization.

Although I bet you could lower some of the settings to achieve a high frame rate with little quality lost, those results are still pretty harsh.

I wonder what the hell the xbox version looks like, couple of stick men running inside a black tube perhaps?

The 360 version looks IDENTICAL, other than the PC resolutions and a couple DX11 effects. Most people don't realize it, but the 360 can pull off a lot of DX10 effects...just not with the same framerates and resolutions.

I'm sure the Xbox version looks fine. Although the PC version will likely be running higher res textures and shadows, with the ability to run more AA at a much high resolution (if you can handle it), that alone will make a huge difference to overall visual quality, so I very much doubt they look identical.

You have to realize that these are MAX settings.

I don't know about you, but I expect max settings to put a strain on my hardware. Max settings which are a walk in the park for hardware is reserved for console ports.

I think the game hasnt been well optimised, wait for a patch, driver update it should be fine.
