    Much better than the 1st one lol.. Not to sure about patches as Atari are a holes, asking for support of Atari is asking a hell load never mind backing the company for patches but hope they prove me wrong though.

    Is it an open play/sandbox game or is it linear?

    Unfortunately I think it's linear. From what I hear it's a good game for Ghostbusters fans, and that I am.

    That's a shame. I think I'll pass then. Ghostbusters is alright but as far as games go, I really don't have much tolerance for linear anymore--too short.

    I can't believe this game gets less than 40 FPS @ 25x16 no AA on a GTX 295.

    Just lock it at 30hz, it's smooth at that rate.

    Yow! It seems to be one of those games that has an insane amount of textures like GTA IV. I wish I had your resolution.

    This resolution is worth its weight in gold.

    But, it only makes this game's flaws look more apparent. It does not look that good, and yet it runs terribly. I really can't do anything but hate games like that. I mean 40 FPS.. on a 295. That's ridiculous. This game doesn't even look as good as Left 4 Dead and that gets over 100. Movie tie-ins and crappy ports FTL.

    The biggest mistake is running anything lower than 22" natively. You're not going to notice the difference in quality on a tiny 17" screen even if you take it all the way down to 800x600, and you should. Actually, you should get a 22" monitor, instead. Trust me on this with your life.
