I'd read somewhere recently that the maximum allowable rseolution for this game is going to be 1280xsomething-or-other? Please tell me this isn't so. I don't typically play FPS's at anything less than 1600x1200.

Well that was PC Gamer.........we have had screenshots at 1600x1200, so it must go up to that. BUt what we've seen with the graphics it wont really matter anyway.

I have a good monitor, but I always play games at 1152x864. For some reason the games just look better that way.:)

1600x1200 only makes real sense with a huge monitor...

And the max res is somewhere in the 2000s, so don't worry....

High Resolutions are only designed for larger monitors. They dont improve quality at that size anyway because they'll be on a large monitor.

Yup, they rule on 19" or even 21".....

Hardly conclusive. You can resize screenshots easily at any resolution using photoshop or much simpler programs, all without losing much quality.

The max rez listed in the PCG UK did indeed say 1280x1024, and I've wondered about that. Makes no sense at all to max out at that level that I can tell.
