Tried the demo last nite. Not the smoothest game out there but its quite fun. For an old thief freek like myself its about fricken time
I find using the 3rd person point of view alot smoother than 1st person. The shadows are jaw dropping and really add to the mood of the game (eating fps and all). 1024X768 with Bloom looks fine to me. Bloom seems to make the whole screen sorta hazy/fuzzy so you don't need AA as much. Two minor quips; 1) I want to see more cutscenes.2) No rope arrow? WTF were they thinking? I really don't understand that design choice @ all!
Someone will make a mod to fix it shortly no doubt.
edit: Graphics are fricken fantastic, especially compared to the first 2.
