This is a case of bad optimization. Homefront doesn't look half as good as BC2, yet it requires more out of a rig?
Not even mentioning the 3-4 hour SP...
Lazy garbage port that was all hat and no cowboy.
QFT.
Just because you can't get high FPS in a particular game doesn't mean your rig is to blame.
Look at Black Ops, the game was coded like crap and it ran like crap because of it, especially before the patches. The same can be said for Fallout, FEAR 1, and Metro 2033.

Funny.. people keep buying this game, It's so bad.

Can't you people just wait for BF3 and ignore any other shooter meanwhile? They are releasing all kind of crap to steal your money because once BF3 gets released, they are all gonna have 0 future

The 5870 by itself is definitely NOT enough power nowadays. I understand where Nixuz is coming from, whereas I want a DEDICATED team making a DEDICATED PC revision of the game, so that I don't have to shell out money on anything but the game to play it well, but the 5870 in general is just old.

The thing is you guys are saying the visuals aren't impressive just because of how the textures look. There is a lot more background effects that take their toll on your GPU and define "Graphics". Physics (though mostly is calculated on the CPU), particle effects ( explosions ), Lighting Info, Bumpmap Polygon count, fluid detail, anisotropic filtering, Anti Aliasing, and even more things are taking tolls on your system. Just because the textures look messy, doesn't mean that the visuals suck, and that the game is poorly coded. And YES the 5870 IS OLD NOW. And the 6970's look like a freaking STEAL! 2GB or GDDR5 RAM, and amazing overclocking capability? Yes please...........

The visuals when you sum up the above things are actually quite good! and yes the game may need optimization, but thats every game basically!

6970's are useless, I can still play BC2 maxed with 150+ fps lol

Water + MAX OC is better than upgrading every month to whatever new GPU they throw at you..

People keep buying top cards and not overclock them haha

Hell, I will play BF3 with a single 5970 clocked, will upgrade when GTX 680 comes out

Why should I upgrade?? They are giving us sexy BF3 with PC engine that will be more optimized than BC2.

First off they actually have a big ass dedicated team making a completely different version of the game. OF COURSE it will be optimized!

Second you have TWO 5870's overclocked to really high speeds. This guy has ONE 5870. The 5970 is still crazy good, the second most powerful card on the planet, but the 5870, even overclocked, is showing wear and tear. The 6970 is not a waste of money, as you will be able to overclock THAT to speeds and be future proof for a few years!

Also who the hell upgrades their card every month?

You get the point Anyway.. I agree 6970's are good, but if you want to play BF3 etc just wait for 7000 series since theres no point upgrading now for BF3

My 5850 maxes nearly everything out at 1920x1200. I played Metro 2033 and couldn't setting everything to high, yes, but the game sucks like a vacuum anyways.

I don't understand where you are getting your info from, go look at benchmarks- there hasn't been a single game released since the 5870 that it has problems with unless you go UBERMAXED I DOWNLOADED THE ALL THE CRYSIS TEXTURE PACKS AND PLAY ON A 2560x1600 SCREEN. NEED ADDITIONAL POLYGOOOOOOOOOONS!

Unless you're talking about 16xAA and 32xAF- who can even tell the difference between 8xAA and 8xAF and those settings?

The 5870/5850 are old? What?

And Homefront is bad. That is all.

I agree.

Homefront is bad
5870 is more than enough and is not old
Difference between 4x AA and "INSERT FANBOY SHOW OFF AA" is like 0. I don't even use any AA sometimes because some games just suck at it
Metro 2033 or whatever name is super bad.
