My buddies and I play the US retail version since we all preordered the game.
However, we have encountered HEAVY bugs which prohibit us from smooth and fun gameplay. This is really a pain in the ass.
Here are some of the issues:
When playing over hamachi ( 2nd mission: rescue the second VIP )one of my buds gets visual errors. Although hes sitting in a helo for us, he can only see the area from underneath. Its like he's underwater somewhat. The ground appears transparent for him.
He's got a Sapphire Radeon9700 pro 128 megs.
What we've tried: Tweaked, reset and played around with the renderer_settings xml file. Nothing worked. Installed latest catalysts too.
Next issue is the Nvidia GF 6800 GT ingame-lockup. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesnt. Its totally buggy.
We tried solving this with the coolbits-measure. Didn't help a thing
I'm disappointed by the instability of this thing.
I expected more for my hard-earned money.
