Who's PC can run this game well?

#1 Posted by Serker (520 posts) -

I turned down every setting to low and still can't get even close to a good framerate. I can run Farcry 2 and Fallout 3 pretty well. this is just ridiculous.

What are your specs?

I was hearing PCs like the one I'll be getting (E8400, GTX260 216) can only really run medium settings in the game.  Nothing really runs higher settings well.

To be honest, medium settings look reasonable. But yeah, no one can run it particularly well

I wanted to play this too.  I'm glad I haven't shelled out the money for it though, my PC is not really one of the best out there.  It runs TF2 pretty good though, but that's about it - that's also not saying much.

E8400, GTS250 1GB, 4GB ram. Game runs pretty damn well on high and 1920x1200(30 FPS), that doesn't change the fact that the animations and voices in that game suck a big one, but yeah, it runs good.

Just ran the benchmark 3 times:
1920x1200
Normal - 35
High - 28
Very High - 25

I'm sure if I dropped the resolution down I could get it running 30FPS on very high.

Mine does. I had it turned up all the way. Then I got very bored.

My PC is old and shite, and it could run smooth on Low....

Are the graphics SUPER jenky for anyone but me? They are all fuzzy and its impossible to tell a person from a tree... I wanted to get this game too... At least they released the demo i guess...

I have a decent system, but cant push the graphics beyond "high" - which btw, isn't really all the high.

I don't think that they've optimized the graphics that well, it might change... but remember that its a really big game.

My laptop ran it decently on all very high with the draw distance slider half way.

9800M 1GB, 4GB DDR3, 2.1ghz Core2duo and I was getting like 25fps.

Runs ok on my core duo 2.3 4 gb ram 8800 gt. My mates got a beast quad core though and he says the framrate is still up and down for him guess we have to wait for some patches.

I haven't benched it but I seem to get decent framerate at 1920x1200 and mostly high (AA disabled, Post-processing low) settings.


Unfortunately on multiplayer I seem to get stuck in a "Receiving..." loop.

E8400 (3GHz C2D), 2 in CrossFire 4850 512MB, 4GB DDR2 800

Mine runs the game resonably, not ultra high graphics settings mind you, but I have them set low enough for a 20-30 FPS most of the time

And the game doesn't look ugly. Gameplay over graphics. Oh and good piloting skills goddamit - stop driving choppers you cant drive!!!!!

Just got my new quad core, and I can run this game fine maxed out. It's NICE

Tried the demo this weekend for about 15 minutes and it bored me to death so I uninstalled, however;
E8400@3.6
EVGA 8800GTS KO G92
8gigs of DDR2

ran it fine at 1440x900 noticed a lot of pop in on the grass and stuff not sure if its just the game or not.

Didn't try it with my GTX280 I put in yesterday but I am assume it'll be even better and my new 23" LG 1920x1080 display comes in today.
