Question Recommend a DX10 Game

I was in that Shop briefly last week to listen to a set of 5.1 speakers which are MUCH better priced at DC- I did some browsing through the latest games thinking I soon want to pick a DX10 game to try out but I don't have any clue as to which ones are good for soloplay. Can anyone recommend a great DX10 game for someone who doesn't play online (dialup )?

considering the only DX10 game out is Lost Planet, your choices are very limited

there are more than that- shadowrun, call of juarez, (ghost recon and COH now have DX10 patches), and there was another game there that said DX10 vista only but I can't remember what it was. Is there really no other games yet? Unbelievable

Isn't Halo 2 Vista DX10?... But apparently it looks like complete crap on the best PCs so I wouldn't go for that.

But yeah or else I think there's only the ones you've mentioned, Lost Planet, Call of Juarez, Shadowrun (Games For Windows [Magazine], I think it was, said it's full of glitches and stuff, so personally I wouldn't get it...), COH + DX10 Patch, and Ghost Recon + DX10 Patch. Yeah I think that's all for now.

Maybe just wait for Crysis?

OK- I thought there might have been something I was missing since I haven't been following it, but since I have COH and AWF, it looks like I'm holding off for CRYSIS- this is UNFREEKINBELIEVABLE

Lol, yeah, I'm impatiently waiting for Crysis too, as well as some other games. (StarCraft II mainly.)

But I'd like to have COH, it looks awesome but I haven't gotten around to buying it. (Think it's good?)
