Just reporting in, I have a 770 and a Phenom II x6. I have about ~2 hours so far with no problems on high settings other than the occasional frame rate hiccup. I get 54-60fps.

Also, to play devil's advocate, why can't review scores be compared? Is it not the same scale? Does 5 stars for one game not mean 5 stars for another? (IIRC on Giant Bomb, 5 stars means "a game everyone should play.")

I'm so glad I go through Gasgoine on the first try with the music box.

On the other hand I think I gave up when Eliene died in my game on a boss fight against another hunter I had no chance beating.

Maybe it's time to start over.

I feel like the entire game can be interpreted as a kind of purgatory where Max comes to terms with Chloe's death (or not).

The powers didn't start until after Chloe got shot in the bathroom. You could then see everything after that as Max attempting to figure out how to deal with it. Save Arcadia Bay ending could be her coming to terms with it, save Chloe ending could be her ultimately not being able to handle it and possibly dieing/going insane herself.

@jedikv: I can't really make any excuses for the forced repeat missions. But, I will say that I don't remember there being more than a handful. What was it like 3? 4? The second act was weaker by FAR in terms of quantity, but the payoffs for everything happened too.

Mission 43, 45, and 46 are all amazing moments. I'm not really sure why everyone keeps treating MGS like it ended after act 1.

There are so many other non story moments too. Like the first time you fulton something, hearing your helicopter come in with a new tape, shooting launchers while on the back of D-Horse, how D-Dog sits in the car, the Paz stuff.

Everyone seems to like the game but deride it for having no to bad story when maybe they've just forgotten it all.

I grew up with the PC version of this game. Mechanically they're the same but the PC version is much better. Looks less like a rom hack and is more of a cohesive experience. It's still pretty bad though.
