Tinkering might be needed.
I needed to set "bump" setting in the video option to low. Then I could set everything else to highest. Otherwise it would crash (Found this inf. on the internets).
So now that I am 90 minutes into it I can see why everyone loved this game. Its a solid FPS. The guns are not great but the action is exciting, the voice acting is sooo much better than today's crappy FPS games. The music is awesome. Your NPC buddies are kick **s. The world is simple old lo res but full of atmosphere. It's smooth. I'm enjoying it... It's supposed to be about 10 hours which is fine with me. It's too dated for me to put more then 10 hours into it. But it's more then worth a $1 per hour.
For instance, I managed to enjoy shadow of mordor (at least the killing chieftans) because of cutting edge animations and fun high res combat ** DESPITE the horrible generic characters, awful forgettable plot lines, dreary music, and repetitive environments. This game you will get as much
value for your money. The combat animations suck and the shooting is not the greatest(but it's OK - and there is some tactical parts) but the GAME as a whole is well conceived and extremely well executed. It's better than the AAA titles of the modern era.
**I know Mordor is not a FPS so the comparison is not 1:1 but it's the last game I played and the most "new" and slickest game to have been released so I'm just comparing value and I'm making a case for trying out this dated title. TYPE or PASTE your text here...
