    whats you peoples take on it... ign reviews seem to be giving it a somewhat low score compared to what it could should be at.

    Played it on Gamecube, it kicked utter ass, but I don't think that the controls would translate to PC well AT ALL.

    If you have a PS2 or cube, get it. The PC version doesn't do the game justice compared to the two other versions of it. Trust me, do yourself a favor in not getting the PC port.

    so it runs like crap on pc? do you think I could max the settings with my rig? I can max oblivion not all the sliders though and it plays well :O

    I dont have that option lol I chose pc over getting a console :p my funds go into PC

    I guess I could splurge one day and get a console too, I'll prob go with a psp though

    Resident Evil/Tomb Raider did not transfer to the pc good in earlier editions, it is a shame.

    i played the pc version, which was ok only if you used a program called mouseaim which allowed you to aim using the mouse. Overall a fun game

    It runs fine on the PC, they just didn't port everything. In some scenes/during some bosses you have to press a combination of keys which appear on the screen, you get to see nice keys from a GC, same with the built in help file, all for the GC. Besides that there is no mouse aim by default, I didn't know there was this mouseaim utility.

    Anyway, once you get used to the controls it actually does play fine and is rather addictive.

    I have the PS2 version, great game. I'm dissapointed from what I've been reading about the PC port...I figured they'd had enough time to actually do something decent and maybe impressive with the game, tune playability, etc..ahh well, I'll just load up my PS2 version if I wanna play it.
