What works

Installation - I got the same error as others have reported at the beginning of the installer about some .txt file that has the wrong checksum size or something.  Didn't effect the installation of game.

Played through first couple of checkpoints with all details cranked.  Portions of the screen go black at certain viewing angles and when facing certain directions when you have everything maxed. I got the black boxes to go away by turning off HDR but then there were random small textures missing.  Setting all to medium fixed textures and black box issue.

Game ran quite nicely at 1920x1200 native res.  Duel core Intel @ 2.8 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 1GB 9800 GTX M

What does not

Sound.  The Ubisoft intro logo has sound, but all sound dies after that. No menu or in-game sound at all.


What was not tested

I didn't try every combination of effect settings to see exactly which setting is causing the screen to draw black at certain viewing angles.

Didn't finish entire demo

3D mode as I don't have the equipment.

Multiplayer if there is one

Additional Comments

I actually turned on 3D mode on accident and if a blurry picture with red/blue color offsets is how its suppose to look WITHOUT the required equipment, then I suppose you could say it might work. Switching 3D mode off while in game will cause it to crash. Not a big deal, but thought it might be worth mentioning.
