Has anyone tried this on PC after it's been patched. I remember it being kinda broken when it first came out. Is it worth trying for only 10 bucks?
9.99 on Steam. Is it worth it?
Just bought it on steam. I'm having zero technical issues on my Nvidia card, can't comment on AMD's drivers. The shooting is incredibly fun, and the enemies are usually fun to engage in firefights. The story is passable, and the characters are sort of one note, but likeable.
My PC still doesn't play it right on an AMD card to the point I get no more than 15 fps when I play it on the lowest possible resolution, and I don't have any problem with any other games running at max resolution. Steam says I played for 8 hours, but 4 of those hours were trying to get it to work right. To me it was the most disappointing PC game of 2011.
I got it for 9.99 on amazon a while ago however (with my AMD card) first i had an instant freeze before the menu, fixed that with the patch. Then my current issue is every single texture first wouldnt appear, but now they all appear as sky blue except for the crosshairs and some shadows. Also after this it crashes to desktop after a minute. After attempting to fix it 12 times and watching that intro vid that many times i gave up. However I fully expect it to work near on fine with an nvidia card
Well, I can't speak for technical issues, I played it on 360, but from a more artistic - err - experiential(?) standpoint, I really enjoyed it. Granted I borrowed a copy and played through it in a weekend without having to spend any money on it, so I didn't really have the highest standards going in. Still, there are some things present, even in their worst games, that make you realize what ID is so fucking great.
I really enjoyed it. Just keep in mind that it's an id shooter, with just a bit of added depth. This isn't Borderlands or Fallout by any means, even if it has similar inspirations in setting. At it's heart it's about shooting lots of baddies in linear levels.
Can't speak to how it is on the PC, but I picked it up for the same price recently on Amazon on 360. Definitely worth it if you're at all curious. The shooting and the animation as well as the graphics in general are superb. Not quite as keen on the story or setting so far.
I just finished it on the 360, and sure, it's a good game - and certainly worth 10 bucks.
Don't make the same mistake as me though, use all your different weapons - unlike me who played almost the entire game while only using the pistol, assault rifle and combat shotgun (while having full ammo for all the other weapons and saving them for a hard fight (that never happened D:)).
Oh, and just start the game on Nightmare - otherwise the game will be boringly easy...
