    I can't seem to get it.
    No option in game and forcing it with NVIDEA controll do butt fuck all.

    It look sharper and better than console and run really good.
    But I want AA still to crank up X16.

    How?

    As far as I know (by 10 minutes on Google) nothing will get AA in Dead Space. The in-game AA setting is apparently just a blur shader run on characters and some scenery. As far as consoles are concerned, it probably looks "better" due to upscaling which introduces some of its own interpolation and therefore blurriness.

    Yeah, that's what we call a shoddy console port.

    I can't stand games without anti-aliasing (acceptable on a console because of my TV). I've been playing Dead Space on PC for a bit and the lack of AA is killing the game for me... absolutely ruining it. So much so that it's affecting what rating it's going to get.

    I like 1280X1024 I don't like anything below X4.
    Don't notice much diff with X2.

    It still look better on pc, sharp but still few jags but not penis up ass ruin game amount imo.

    The game still looks great, plays great. I was a little ticked off at the lack of detail customizing as well though.

    Unreal Engine 3 uses deferred rendering which isn't compatible with MSAA in DX9.

    its the engine - if you want to get rid of the jaggys your gonna need to use a high resolution - i use 1680x1050 and it looks amazing even without AA

    i honestly don't see what the problem is with you guys and AA - if you find the consoles acceptables why not PC? - if you honestly care that much about something as stupid as that then obviously your stuck up tossers
    2x on a 1280x1024 is basically alls you need for most if not all of todays games (by which if your system can handle 1280x1024 AND 2x AA then obviously you can play 1680x1050 just fine!)
    if your playing the game on anything less then 1280x1024 then obviously its not the games fault that your system sucks balls

    and as for GTA4 being a bad port - wtf you on about? - do your comparisons, you only say its a shit port because you can't max out your settings, do your research
    if you can play GTA 4 on medium then your system is actually slighty better then that of the console << how is that a shit port
    the only gripe i have with GTA 4 is the multiplayer - Singleplayer works like a charm - i however get major sucky framerate issues when playing multiplayer (Thats not the game, its my system, i cba to find out what the problem is :P)

    Yeah its kinda disappointing when a game on PC is missing something like AA. I don't notice it that bad on games that don't include it though with 1920x1200 res.

    Simple answer. It's not a question of what AA options you have available but more the remedy you have at your disposal. The game running at the highest res makes this game look betterthan that seen on 360 and PS3.

    It honestly doesn't even need to be close to the highest res to still look better than the console versions. The console versions look great too since the game in general does, but they have far more aliasing than on PC even with plenty of higher reses available. It would still be nice to have AA just be there, though.

    I read on a site that Dead Space had the worst controls ever, they even compared it with the Alone in the Dark controls. They we're so wrong. Dead Space has great mouse/keyboard controls.

    EDIT: Here's the source.
