    What driver are you using? Try to update to last driver, maybe it solves the problem.

    I'm playing on a G53SW and not experiencing any problems with a 460m. I've also updated to the latest drivers.

    How is this game, btw? Gameplay wise? I've read a bunch of reviews, but I'm not sure if I should pull the trigger on it.

    Any issues with disarming people?

    I personally love the game. It's definitely in my top 10 favorites of all time. I love the aesthetics and soundtrack. That being said, it's not for everyone. The SP is quite short. Even if you're very ham-handed, it won't take you more than maybe 8 hours to finish. There's no multiplayer, unless you count the various time trial maps. I found a gamepad is a must. I couldn't disarm for squat using the mouse and keyboard. Some of the achievements/trophies for the 360/PS3 version make it worth a second or third play-through. For example, there's one you can unlock for beating the game without shooting an enemy. But since there's no such support on the PC, you probably won't go back to it again and again.

    PhysX support on the PC provides some slightly enhanced visuals, but you'd need at least a GTX 560M to run the game well with it enabled.

    If you can pick it up for cheap ($5 or less), it's definitely worth it. Otherwise, wait for it to go on sale. Direct2Drive is running discounts on EA games all this week so it would be worth it to check there. Steam will probably put it on sale at some point as well.

    The game itself is both insane amounts of fun and frustration. Disarming works well enough. There is a problem with the platforming aspect, if you're even a tiny bit off from the ledge you have to grab/land on etc. you'll most likely fall to your death. Since the game is from a first person perspective, expect this to happen quite a few times.

    There is also a few confined spaces that makes running away form the bad guys without getting shot to death a PITA.

    Did i enjoy the game, yes and a lot on top of that. Did i almost destroy a PS3 controller (had to open it to make it work right again) due to frustration, yes. By the way, it's the only game where i actually smashed my controller against something out of sheer frustration.

    Most of the game is a lot of fun, but expect to hate some parts of it too.

    EDIT: Most of the platforming is fun, it's a platforming game after all, it just gets a bit frustrating sometimes. If the game allowed for a certain margin of error to compensate for the first person perspective platforming (very small one of course), it would be almost perfect. I did play the game on PS3 for the record and never shot someone :D.

    Ehhh.....that's not good :confused: I was expecting better testimonials, lol...

    I guess in turn I could recommend you guys one of my favorite games: Prince of Persia 2008 :)

    I was looking for a game very similar to that.....emphasis on platforming, a little bit of action thrown in, and beauuuutiful graphics and visuals.

    Already went through PoP 2008 :p, way less frustrating than mirror's edge. Honestly, i'd still recommend the game, just be warned that you will experience a few frustrating moments. Thank to that game, i now know that PS3 controllers are also very sturdy :p.
