I like the game but it is kinda of narrow, I mean you have one road to attack on
and it is between the sea and the mountains.

Great for Snipers.
It's a beta. Only one map is available for a beta. The PS3 had a different map which I think was a lot better.

Just played on a friend's rig on max settings with bloom and HBAO turned on, and the difference was night and day. Wish I could run it on my rig. Maybe I will when Fermi is out.

I agree that the PS3 map was better, however this map is growing on me.

The first phase is my least favorite (sniper heaven, way too much open space). But I do enjoy the rest of the map (especially the 3rd and 4th phases, with the helicopters).

Yeah, HBAO gives more depth and bloom definitely makes a big difference. Bloom doesn't have a huge performance impact, which is nice.

I'm in the process of uploading HBAO on/off comparisons along with AA and AF comparisons. IMO, those settings aren't worth it, I turn AA, AF to 1x and turn off HBAO because I'd rather have the +40 fps.

I did try that, now I get a negative 900 something number. I broke the beta.

Well, here's some more screenies. HBAO on/off and 8xAA, 16xAF compared to 1xAA, 1xAF. I turned off HBAO for the AA/AF comparisons. Looks like I'll be turning off these settings and playing with my 80+ fps.

HBAO off:

So... HBAO makes models darker?
post #1598 of 4923
wow I never see the difference between AA x2 and x16. I play with it x2 and I don't notice any jagged edges, it doesn't bother me.

I'm surprised at the performance loss, for so little change, but that sees the norm these days.

That's exactly what I got from the tests.

Surprised me too...that's why I turn off AA and AF (for this game at least).

I see absolutely no notable difference between those HBAO shots to be honest.

I've been playing with it off because of the performance boost since i noticed some input lag when it was on.
