Plus this is only a DirectX 9.0c game title in a day and age where the video card makers are pushing DX11 gaming hardware down our throats. It better run good on video cards that have just come out!

I do find it funny that they are pushing this game with the GTX 580's when the game will not even take advantage of the full capabilities of the 580's. Kinda like using a Ferrari engine with a toyota corolla. But as always great article

I remember when CoD 2 came out for PC and it ran like garbage. To get through the Russian campaign I had to run the game in DirectX 7 mode. They probably caught a lot of flak for that and decided that it's better for the franchise if it works well on old hardware too.

*EDIT*
Experience any issues while playing the game? Apparently there's a long list of gripes.

I've only had time to play single player and after getting half way through the game i've had no issues... Playing on a GTS 450 and it's fine at 16x10 with stuff cranked up a bit.
