If anyone is playing it on a GTX260, I'd love to know how it runs...

Ok, quick question. Unless there's a benchmarking feature, how can I see what my FPS is? do I used FRAPS? I've heard that that slows the game down a lot....

Yeah FRAPS is good. Don't know about any slowdowns, games look just as smooth when I run it.

You get a pretty small hit with FRAPS when only getting frames, like 1 FPS. If you record your game as video with it then you take a much bigger hit in performance.

Hmm, I'm hovering around 30 FPS. DX11, all max without PhysX.
I saw 17 FPS but very rare. At least until now.

VERY nice graphics, I play it with Russian voices, creepy atmosphere, me like it until now.

Funny how some say Optimisation this and that. Crysis in 2007,2008 is still the best looking game i ever played and we are in 2010. Might have take a couple of gen for the engine to be playable, but it's pure eye candy.

Also maybe it's because the drivers and the 58XX aren't that great with tesselation. This game use it heavely on characters (and it shows). 58XX is also the first gen of card to support it and, like always the first gen of anything is always borderline playable with the tech is used :)

Interesting review, albeit on 360. But I like his comparisons to Bioshock and Half-Life, and his other PC references. Dam I want this game now but I has no time to play it! My resistance will likely fade the first time it goes on a Steam sale.
