Hmmm...still on the fence with this, these cherry picked bits have not helped, and i notice through all those videos they dont comment at all on the game other than what's happening on the screen, bit strange not to mention the obvious stuff like low textures and frame rate issues you can see in the videos.
The low textures are probably due to the game using DX9. DX10 and 11 allow developers to add more visual pizzaz to a game, but they have higher minimum specs for PC users. If Paramount is trying to get into the Asian market, locking down the game so it can be played on Windows XP makes sense, since they seem to be on or installing XP a lot for some reason.
