Stutter problem
Hey folks just wanted to pass on some info on this game, which definitely qualifies as a crappy console port. The game itself is not too bad, although it covers little new territory.

The game will stutter annoyingly every 10 seconds or so on my setup, using an nVidia 480GTX. Turns out thats an across the board issue with nVidia cards... AMD issued a patch in a recent driver. the work around is to run in windowed mode. I did this and the framerates were stable.

I just finished the first 2 districts without any framerate issues in fullscreen mode. I'm using a GTX580 with the latest drivers. To say that this is a general nVidia problem is simply not true, otherwise I would be having those problems too.

I'm having a blast with the game, and I encourage anyone with the slightest interest in the game to try the demo and see for themselves if they like the game and how it performs on their system.

Ah... my driver is 306.97. Latest is 310.70... is that the one you are using? Mebbe I'll try that and see what we get.

Yep, that's the one. Fixed stuttering in quite a few games for me (Far Cry 3 especially).

Any luck with the new driver?

I just got the game, I have Nvidia GeForce GT 640 (314 Drivers) and getting stuttering/lag.

I still got it even with the updated driver. Had to run in windowed mode.

I wonder if its a 480 issue because I'm using a 480 with latest drivers and I have this problem but thanks for the workaround.

I'd say it doesn't help that you've got a budget-end graphic card...

Im running a GTX 670 and have come across stuttering in this game. Not all the time but a few races it's been there, shoddy.
