    I setup using 1024x768 2xAA 8AF, high quality everything on. First off the settings menu is much like Doom3s, meaning if you try to select ultra quality you get a warning. The advanced settings are the same ect..

    I'm using 7801s without any issues. Rig is in sig:rolleyes:

    The game does have that 'Doom' feel, however it sepparates itself by ACTION and a ton of it. The first time I pulled the trigger with the machine gun, then right clicked for that quick sniper like zoom, I was like:D The guns really have a 'kick' to them esp the shotgun as it throws your arms up after each shot. I felt a real connection between me and the weapon cutting down enemys. So far (only played for an hour) I like this game, it's got heart pounding action, mixed with stuff that scares you (I jumped a few times) and sounds and looks amazing.

    As far as Performance go's, so far I have stayed above 60fps and may try a higher rez and or more AA. I had no errors, glitches, pauses ect wile playing. The game has an auto save feature that causes a quick pause nothing major. The sound is just killer with my audigy 2 ZS.

    I set the difficulty to the 3rd highest (4 being the hardest) and so far it's about right as I died about 5 times:rolleyes: But hey I don't want to finish such a game too fast;)

    There will be some that bash it for this and that.. But it hits hard as being a Quake game in my opinion.
    So what are you waiting for...Buy it:cool:

    Anyone know how to use the consol yet? I pulled it down and typed in timedemo demo1 and it seemed like a valid comand but it was as if a demo 1 was not there.

    timedemo doesnt work like that.

    its "timedemo 1" its used to measure your FPS on a recorded demo, so you need to have a demo present. after the timedemo command you use the "demo demoname" command.

    QFT.

    The holiday season is great in that all these new games come out, but man, the pressure to come up with all that money and time to play them is painful sometimes.

    Depends. Im a very keen gamer. I enjoyed Doom 3, i love shooters, i love all out war, vehicles, safe to say i will enjoy Quake 4.:) it's not as if im strapped for money either.

    The game looks pretty good, but I don't have $60 to spend on the collector's edtion. Does anybody have the collector's Edition? How does Q2 looks?
