I love the SH series and enjoyed SH3 since it was released and I know the devs spent a lot of time and hardwork on the game, and I really do appreciate their efforts. I'm sure this game will, in time, be a gem. But I think Ubi screwed us and the dev's on this one with an "accelerated release". So far, the one thing that really bugs me the most is picture quality. I didn't buy a high-powered system for nothing and I surely don't appreciate spending my $$$'s on a game that cannot/willnot/doesnot take advantage of it. I REALLY REALLY miss FSAA. Especially when my screens native resolution is 1920x1200 and the 3d objects look like they were constructed with lego's.
The prospect of a patch WAS something to look forward to until I read the list. There sure are lots of "Added Added Added" and "Improved Improved" but I sure didn't see any "Fixed" on that list.
As is the case with every Ubi experience of mine, I paid my $50 to become a beta tester.
