Looks great in 3D. There is occasional crashing to desktop (CTD), but I think this is because of my GPU. There is also a problem with capturing screenshots (which can also cause a CTD), but I didn't score against this because it has nothing to do with the actual game play. While you have to turn antialiasing off so the game has playable speeds, TriDef actually forces it off for you anyway in their latest beta drivers referenced in this submission. The only major anomaly I can spot is in the wintery environments, ice on water has some kind of clipping error.

Part II: Required Game Setting Reductions & Adjustments

  • Turned off Anti-Aliasing. This is required if AA makes the game visually unplayable or the AA reduces frames per second to ridiculously low levels like one to two FPS in 3D mode. Do not select this if it is just a method of getting more performance out of a slower graphics card.

    Part III: Top Level Anomalies

    Total penalties: 0

    Part IV: Secondary Anomalies

  • Player tags or markings associated with game characters are rendered only at screen depth, and not at the depth of the individual objects or characters.
  • QA penalty: 5%
  • A doubled low contrast effect or halo caused by software error. For example, the left eye shows a doubled faint outline, while the right eye shows just one.
  • QA penalty: 10% Ice on water gets a clipping error.
