or BIOSHOCK - 2k games

Because it's from 2K as well doesn't mean it should be similar at all when it comes to PC requirements. You're comparing 2K9 with an Unreal Engine 3.0-based FPS game...
El Badmanator IV: Intel i7-7700K @4.2GHz, Nvidia GTX 1080 8GB; Dell 2K 27"Monitor w/G-Sync @144Hz; Samsung EVO Pro 500GS SSD; OCZ Vertex4 256GB SSD; ASUS Prime Z270-A mobo; Corsair Vengeance @2400MHz 16GB DDR4 RAM; Thermaltake 750W PSU; Razer DeathAdder Chroma gaming mouse; Gigabyte Aivia Osmium mechanical keyboard; Smilodon Dirk-Tooth case; Creative 5.1 Surround sound; Nvidia 3D Vision 2 Kit; Windows 10 Pro 64bit

ur right, stand corrected ;)

but still "FPS(especially the present one's)" games are always the one's who requires HIGH END COMPUTERS with the exception of the following

GTA 4
ASSASIN's CREED

this 2 games are ACTION ADVENTURE games

and SUPREME COMMANDER w/c is STRATEGY GAME

Sorry but those min req doesn't make any sense, a dual core 2 ghz as minimum, even crysis doesn't require that, and after that you put a higher cpu speed than the core 2 duo you recomended. The video card does make sense, a 8x speed dvd rom( who cares the game will be installed on the harddrive).

seems kinda light on requirements for a 360 port. i would laugh if it was a port of the ps2 version. but then again, it is just the MINIMUM just for it to work, so with full settings and everything, it obviously has tobe better than that.

anyways, i would be able to run it if my laptop was working.

Damn.. So close :lol:
Could I at least run the game with 128 MB ATI x300 ? It supports only Shader 2, as I know. Still, PES required Shader 3 as well, but I was able to run it quite well.

Yeah, these requirements sound like this version is the PS2 version. NExt gen graphics would require something much better than this.

I Think If It's A PS2 Port It Doesn't Need Pixel Shader 3.0, Shader 2.0 Technology Is Enough For PS2 Ports.
