This game is alright...

It's $20 on steam.  It looks great in DX11.  Crossfire in DX11 works well.  I discovered that I had to install the Games for Windows Live redistributable found in the game directory -- otherwise, the DX11 version of the game kept crashing on startup (ntdll.dll related crash).

Meh, i heard nothing but bad things to be honest. I hope you enjoy it though, i was looking forward to it but all the negative reviews and opinions my friends had about it turned me off from it.

The game seems pretty odd in many ways.  You can't save the game until you finish an entire chapter.  The PC version reviewed slightly better, btw.

@SSully:
The campaign on the game is pretty great.  It's interesting to see how the different factions you play as in each chapter come together towards the end of the storyline, and the entire chapter where you play as the desert bandits was hilarious.  Not!Mexican bandits in a vast desert wasteland hijacking a mobile fortress/giant laser cannon combo from a corrupt corporation's private army on a whim just because it passed by them one day, and proceeding to wreak havoc across the world?  Very yes.
