    Great review, glad I upgraded in time. Looks like I'll be playing this for a while.

    Bit-tech should have an uber low end rig like mine to test these out and just scare me by telling us how it performs.

    "As the levels load a brief exposition is given by a disembodied voice accompanied by some very pretty watercolour pictures....."

    The voice is actually Alec Baldwin a good narrator if you ask me him or James Earl Jones both good in my opinion.

    I just ran the in-game benchmark myself on the system in my sig (except GFX card @ stock) and here are my results:

    taken from fpsdata.txt:
    Code:
    Resolution: 1600*1200
    Detail Level: Very High
    Average fps: 29
    Min fps: 16
    Max fps: 56
    TotalFrames: 1474
    My settings:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Screen of benchmark:

    [​IMG]

    Why are my results so much better with the same GFX card, the same amount of RAM and a (admittedly more powerful) CPU? Does WiC scale that much with CPU power?

    Anyways... I'm pretty pleased with the results. ;)

    RTS games do tend to be quite CPU intensive (not flight sim levels but still....)

    Am I the only one who prefers the normal Napalm/Tank Buster/Laser Guided Bomb to the OMGWTFBBQ Tactical Nukes?

    Game pissed me off, so no. Even though it's £26 on their website, they want £34 for the privilege of letting them save on postage by buying in store. So I've just ordered online. I can't use the gift card I have, but oh well, it'll get spent eventually.

    In short; I should. But I don't. And whoever's in charge of Game's pricing should get a brick through his window. But they probably won't.

    Are you sure that wasn't the collectors edition? 'cause that's about $60/£35

    while nukes are okay, they're only really good if they're all packed together and even then there's too much collateral damage.

    my 320MB only managed this

    to test CPU, shouldn't we be running at lower settings? so to make it fare on my poor 320MB, im going to run at:

    btw, where did you get those text in code? i assume you didn't type it

    I'll do some tests @ 1280 and low, med detail later or tomorrow.

    And that text in code is taken from fpsdata.txt found in the WiC save game folder. As far as I can tell it saves data of the last run benchmark and gets overwritten each time a new benchmark is run.

    i finished the single player of this over the weekend, the only issue i had is that sitting in little circles drawn on the ground isnt that great a mechanic for the single player side of things
    its ok for multiplayer but i think for single player they could've changed it up a bit
    just a small niggle though, bloody good overal :cooldude:

    oh and i remember the benchmark in the mp beta would give me horrible fps numbers, way down in the 10's or so but it was totally playable in game :s
