The Mako does handle weird...and it's rather good at handling terrain. Perhaps too good.

Idk...something about the Mako's handling just feels a little weird to me. Especially when turning.

The controls are good, just different from a lot of other games. Takes getting used to for me.

What level are you? I hate to admit it, but I'm level 56.

It's soooo good, but the random crashes are annoying. I've figured out it's a combination of my video card being stressed so much and the game just being plain buggy. I lowered my resolution a bit, and the crashes still happen. Just less frequently.

That's why I love the stability on the Xbox 360 version. Don't have to worry if my video card can't handle the stress or whatever.

That's unacceptable, get out of my thread NOW

On a more serious note, it's not a bad port, and it has definitely been improved in some areas. Is there a patch at all?

Hahaha

Yeah, it's a decent port. I do like what they've done to convert the GUI for the mouse/keyboard, but it's buggy beyond belief.

Honestly, I'm having no problems. I did get one crash, in dialogue.
