I'll try to post my impression in a lil bit after I play a few games, just got my copy.

Not really a impression, more like a question, well it is a question. To those who have the game, how does it feel when playing it on PC? How are the graphics? C'mon I want some IMPRESSIONS!

The game is amazing, I'm absolutely blown away. Of course at the same time it's not difficult to be blown away by a sports game on the PC considering the utter garbage EA Sports has crapped out in the past ~5 years.

I play on my 46" 1080p LCD HDTV at 1920 x 1080 resolution and the game looks and plays amazing. THIS is what a PC is capable of, and it's great to see a company actually prove that the PC can easily handle next-gen sports games. As if any real PC Gamer had a doubt to begin with.

Thank You so much to 2K Sports for treating us PC Gamers right, the game is just fantastic. I may buy a 2nd copy to send to my friend just to help support the game.

And now I will imagine MLB, NHL, and All Pro Football 2K on the PC....

*DROOL*

Something to look forward to. I have the ps2 version and was actually satisfied with it except for the sonics being in still but I will definitely be getting the pc version now.

I'm also blown away by the PC Graphics. On my system (e8400 3ghz,8800 gts, 4 gigs of ram) textures look incredible and super sharp at 1920X 1200! And the frame rates never skip a beat! The game almost feels like a new gen game ,but I'm comparing it to the 360 version on a standard def TV set.

One thing I have noticed though is that theres no cloth movement. Can some one confirm if this feature was left out on the PC? Or is there a setting somewhere to enable this? Would be a major let down for me if it was left out.

Uh, I'm sure most of us are using controllers. I'm using a 360 controller.

You have to put the player details to Ultra High.


I love the game so far, just need to tweak the controls and find out if I can get the game to say the letters of the buttons rather than B1 B2 etc. I don't know what those are.

I also hope they fix some of the menus, because even with vsync off the menus run at 4FPS at times.

I only play on a dinky resolution but here is one screen I took quick.

Do you have the settings on Ultra High? That is the setting you're supposed to put it at to see the movement. I have it on Ultra High and jerseys move, although I guess I'm not sure of what the specifics you're talking about. But I do see them move.

And either way, I mean a "major" letdown? Really? With how unbelievable the game looks already? It can't be that big of a deal...but like I said on Ultra High I see them move.

Sure it can be. Having static clothes this generations is a total kick in the pants. It totally takes away from the graphics.

Is the PC version different in any way compared to the XBOX 360 version? I doubt it would be but I figured I'd ask.
 
# 17 JoeMimic @ 10/22/08 08:38 AM
It's definitely not a game to try and run at the minimums. It'll be interesting to see if it can be modded and if so to what extent.
 
# 18 ehh @ 10/22/08 09:26 AM
So we should be able to find this in stores today fairly easily? I checked Gamestop's website and it said every store in my area has it in stock. I'll have to take a trip on my lunch break today.
 
# 19 SimBaller @ 10/22/08 10:44 AM
If you have a system that can support it, the game looks ridiculously crisp at 1920x1200.
 
# 20 Peter_OS @ 10/22/08 11:13 AM
I can't wait to get my hands on this game. Still waiting for my pre order to come in. Hopefully it's in today. From the sounds of it, this looks to be a great game. I hope 2K continues this trend and releases more of their sports games on this platform.
