Take a look at the difference.....

Even those screenies dont do it justice but it is enough for anyone who has already completed the game go back and do it again, one problem, if you aint got a 256Mb card you might struggle as obviously the mi res mod sups power!
Whoa.

That's awesome! I'm downloading that when I get home

I got Fable for free and still uninstalled it after about 1/2 hour. I thought it was a horrible game and completely boring. Should I have stuck it out a little longer?

The game is quite fun once you get out of the heroe's guild, as there are many quests and side-quests to stretch out the game well beyond the 20 hours of play for the strict story line. Plus, there's infinite ways you could beat it.

I guess I should've given it more of a chance. I almost did the same thing with Dungeon Siege II. I literally almost uninstalled it after an hour, but I didn't and it turned out to be the best game I've ever played. It got REALLY good after you left the noobie areas and got some cool powers. I'm tempted to play that one again.

I think FEAR and Half-Life are at the top of the list, but I must agree, FarCry has some amazing graphics to be a couple of years old...not sure how they do it, and isn't really a big strain on a PC either....hmmmmm

FEAR is kicking my system's ass right now
