Yes, it's still HD. As I said above, it just doesn't conform to HDTV standards.
Exactly my opinion. If you're PC resolution is set to display at least 720 lines, then you will have an HD quality display. Widescreen monitors are not the norm for PC gamers, so I don't think this should be an issue anyone should be splitting hairs over. We know it's not HDTV...it's a PC game, not TV. And as soon as we PC gamers bump our 4:3 aspect ratio monitor up to 1600x1200, we've left HDTV resolutions in the dust.

Again, let's not split hairs. It is HD quality, probably greater HD quality. It does not conform to the HDTV standards. Who cares, it's not a TV. I mean, what next...are we going to start bickering about whether we're playing in "full HD", like Sony wants everyone to believe is the only "HD" that matters?
As I said, my advice to all PC gamers is to not pay one whit of attention to the "HD" moniker. It is a TV thing, not a PC thing.
