Has anyone played this ye?

From the screen shots I've seen the graphics look pretty amazing. Since John Woo help collaborate on the game I have a sneaky feeling the there is going to be a lot of slow motion cut scenes.

Here are the recommended system requirements.
  • Optical Drive: CD-ROM
  • CPU Speed: AMD Dual Core Processor
  • Disk Space: 15GB
  • Display: ATI X1300 or Nvidia 7800
  • Memory (RAM): 2GB
  • Operating System Compatibility: Windows XP/Vista, Not Mac Compatible

Most games you can usually skip past the cut scenes.

this game is alright but for me there are a lot of other games that are better and are worth more. I thought the 7800 was a lot better than the X1300

I didn't like this game at all - it seemed very "console-ized" and I didn't like the feel of how it played
