I'm most likely buying the game over the weekend, tune in on Pregaming.com for an exclusive review on it.

Well I have it and have only moved around in the apartment so far since I am hooked on knights of the old republic and I have to complain big time about the frame rate....it does not run smooth at all....and **** my basic computer specs:

pentium 4 2.8ghz 800fsb
Ati radeon 9800 XT
512mb pc3200

think the game should lag?
:rolleyes:

Guess you just kick your computer too much ;)

I think it's the damn multi sampling...that's an antialiasing option...antialiasing will lag the **** out of you but you cannot turn it off!...it has to be at 1X. :mad:

Speaking of lag, I am trying to play Deus Ex again (so as to prepare for DX 2) but it lags. It hasn't done this when I played it before. Before it ran perfectly w/ a high resolution, etc. It doesn't do that for other games. I installed the patched but nothing is happening. Nothing happens when I reinstall either (or do a combination of the two)
Here are my specs if anyone would be nice enough to help:
Intel Pentium III, 500MHz
128 MB RAM
DirectX 8.1
Graphix card: 16MB 3dfx Voodoo3 3000D AGP

Anyway back on topic,, here in the UK we have to wait 'till Febuary to get DX2, so we suck. :D

its been getting ok, but not great reviews. They have definately scaled down the graphics a lot from the early screenshots (probably because of the toll of the lighting effects) and the whole bllom thing and font sizes say to me that it was designed with the xbox as the primary concern. However the story looks to be immersive and cool.

If it was any other game i'd be happier than if it was a sequel to DX.
I've changed my order to KOTOR instead, but im sure i'll play the whole game when i can get it cheaper.

There is just something about the game that just looks weird...like maybe everything is over sized or something.

It needs a patch though...for me none of the settings will stay...have to re set everything every time I launch the game.

I agree it just doesn't look the same like Dues Ex 1

Dark- if it looked the same as Deus Ex, then they would be taking a step backwards in the graphics department compared to games nowadays ;)

Well, tomorrow I am gonna buy the game at my work. But from what I heard (which has been pretty consistant) it is making me kinda nervice. I don't want this game to be crap, cause IMO the first one was one of the best games of all time. Gonna have a lot of time to play, cause my new girlfriend is mad at me, and I don't think we'll be on speaking terms for a while, so I'll just have to make this game my new best friend :). So wish me luck.(that the story can keep this game good)

No the enviroment didn't look right the time and technology. Not game graphics.
