wherefore 5.1 games?

  1. Having invested in the superb Videologic Sonicfury (turtle beach santa cruz) for its 5.1 capability, I decided to purchase a speaker setup to do this justice so ended up buying the Hercules XP510 5.1 surround system which did the business.
    However, the satellite speakers seemed a bit weedy so I ditched them and invested in a decent home cinema speaker setup which really rocks big time!
    Music and Dvd really make the most of this setup but I find that games featuring surround capability are really poor performers - theres plenty of action in the left ,right and centre but the rears don't really do an awful lot,
    my query is this - are there any games which deliver kick *** performance in surround mode?

    All you need is for the game to support DirectSound 3D &/or EAX as well to get 3D audio support. You'd be best disabling virtual 5.1 though as the front center chanenl is just a mix of front left/right otherwise.
