    You guys both have the same exact computers and yet one of you is saying it runs bad(and giving exact fps, mind you when I say bad I just mean it doesn't run well.)and the other is saying it "feels" like its running fine. Can we get some fraps from you as well? I want to buy this game but if its running like that on the r3 my poor r2 won't be able to handle it.

    Ok so minimum i got was 16 and max 27 in night level :d its like chapter 4 or something, lots of crap happening... i should lover the settings a bit i guess, though it doesn't feel like i get these frame drops...

    Anyways, game works fine... just get it, i average 22 most of the time in the night level and settings are almost maxed apart from those 3... if you lower settings a bit your 335GT will run it fine and even with lower settings game looks gorgeous...

    Okay, my question is is it more CPU or GPU intensive?

    Its more GPU intensive. CPU averages about 60-65% on my i5, and GPU runs at 100%. It takes overclocking of the GPU very well though. I probably saw a 5-6fps gain when bumping the GPU Core up to 775MHz.

    I play on a mix of medium/high settings and average a consistent 30fps. I'd think the R2 would play it alright also, but R1 would struggle.

    I am using M11x R2 i7. I can play relatively smoothly on lowest setting.
    Unfortunately, it starts to stutter a lot when beyond lowest setting...
    Even though the graphic setting is at its lowest, it has beautiful graphics.
    It is definitely playable !!

    p.s. I did't play overclocked.

    Honestly its because most people deem 30 to be smooth. Anywhere from 25-30 depending on the amount of motion blur is usually fine for me, anything lower then that looks noticeably choppy. But everyone can tolerate different things and so on however thank you for the frame count as thats the only inconclusive evidence that can be brought to the table.

    Well I have an M11XR1 and I get pretty decent frame rates 20-30 at most but when it gets really busy it lags to about the 20s and stays there a little.
