    @FordGT,
    Turns out it was a bad install of patch 1.5. Most everything seems OK now, but I DO still feel a bit of springiness in the camera, mostly when moving forward on foot. I know it's changed to more freedom because I have to manually position the camera each time before I start driving, as I drive without using mouse, but mouse control is still not nearly as good as it could be.

    @Mat,
    Don't expect full on RPG features, more like the kind of upgrade and wardrobe system you'd see in an Action/Adventure game.

    I'm sure they probably will. They seem to hint that Aunt Jiang will be the new Chairman in the next one, if not an insider Triad rival like Dog Eyes.

    There's plenty of ways they could go with a sequel or even trilogy. True Crime had a tendency to hop locations from one city to the next, but since they've changed the name and style, they're free to do whatever they want with the story.

    No, it's like GTA IV but with a lot less gunplay (melee instead) and one ending.


    I could definitely see Aunt Jiang, Inspector Teng, Raymond, and 18K being the main elements in a sequel.

    This game is pretty tight, but my computer lags when I played it.

    GFX are Awesome! It's a full up to date DX11 title with the "Eye Candy" on. I am on my 2nd play thru now and loving it as much as the first:D

    Gone quiet in here,I just picked this up today as I finally got my free code from my VaporX 7950 which I have had over a week :banghead:

    Anyhow, activated on steam and downloaded it at 7.6MB/s solid on my 60Mb fibre connection :nutkick:

    Only an hour into it, but man i am so impressed with this game, I have been out of gaming for a while now as nothing has really been able to keep my attention, normally mainly into FPS but am bored to death with the stuff that's been coming out the last couple of years.

    The game looks very nice, though I am having a lot of trouble running it at 1440p on extreme settings (specs to the left) at high settings it runs a respectable 40-60FPS at all times, if I lower the res to 1080p I get a constant 60FPS with vsync enabled.

    Can someone compare their system to mine and let me know what FPS they get at extreme settings? ideally 1440p thopugh 1080p is fine too :toast:

    Just back the AA down to High. You can leave the rest cranked up. Extreme is using 4xFXAA+4xSSAA. SSAA takes some SERIOUS muscle to run period. Pushing it at 1440 would definitely put some strain on it. There was a really great explanation on another forum on SSAA and how it works.
    High looks just as good IMO and runs much better.

    Did you remember to Download the High Res Texture pack? It's "DLC" on the Steam Page.

    True Crime!
    Forgot about this game.
    Good Ol' PS2 days before my Brother told me how bad the graphics sucked on PS2 compared to PC.

    Yes true crime was fun.

    Upgraded my GPU just to be able to handle this game besides begrudgingly retiring my HD4850.

    Please tell me someone with a rig as high end as UbErN00b's would at least make sure to install the HD pack? LOL

    Yeah it has great graphics, but despite being a fairly well optimized game, it's best to keep the frame rates near or above 60 FPS. Even then some places can get a bit hitchy when driving.

    If they make another, I hope they can get the aim, movement and gunplay a bit more polished. Controls are too consolish and holding Shift to aim is just bizarre.

    Do you have the same problems on extreme with a similar albeit better system than mine? Thanks for the tip btw am going to try it out as I feel my 7950 should be able to run all of my games at 1440p

    I suppose I "could" run it on Extreme but the frame hit is just a bit much for the quality you get in return not to mention it seriously heats up your card as well. It looks just a great on High(only talking about the AA) and runs buttery smooth 60fps all the time. Oh I also turn off Blur just because I hate it...

    No one, it was more sarcasm than anything, hence the LOL. Just stating that most anyone interested in running 1440p would probably have the HD pack.

    Yeah I started a 2nd Playthru but put it aside waiting for some DLC to add into my 2nd run(and well stuff like Black Mesa and Borderlands 2 have pulled me away) Definitely one of the best games I have played this year for sure.

    Seems that 1440p extreme takes a big FPS hit from 1080p, though if I drop the AA to high it's playable at 30-50FPS

    I ran the benchmark on extreme at 1080p to compare to your 7970 and got 42fps avg, 52fps max and 28.2fps min, not too shabby :toast:

    Man, I was hoping to see a multiplayer for this.. I'll have to check it out when I get home though. Looks like a lot of fun and from what I see it's very pretty.

    Yes it's fantastic looking game running proper DX11 features and runs very well. Makes GTA IV look like crap that's for sure. GTA V better be bringing something big to the table because IMHO SD sets the new standard for Open World/Sandbox games for visuals

    Yeah, Sleeping Dogs even runs slightly cooler for me than GTA IV.
