Let me start by saying that this game is very demanding on system specs. I have a pretty strong system and the game runs "OK" on it. I am really itching for the May 27th price drop now because I am going to need to go with atleast a 2 ghz. I havent played for more than 10 minutes and I am already hooked into it. The game is great. I have never played it before on the PS2 so this is my first chance to experience all the hype. Ill post back with some further thoughts a bit later.
