I agree with the above. However, be warned. This game contains the world's most annoying and gratuitous opening sequence. Now with 56% more motorcycle!
Do not set the terrain detail to anything above "normal" unless you enjoy slideshows. The rest of the detail sliders are reasonable, and FRAPS confirms that the game does indeed scale the detail to deliver a consistent framerate, just like the options "FPS" slider imples...
And for God's sake, can they hire someone to improve the goddamn hand model? The rest of the game is looking great, and they forget what is right in front of our faces, figuratively speaking.
Or maybe this is actually a baseball sim and that hand really is a catcher's mitt.
