Additional Comments

The game also have some "issues" with saving, it take for ever to quicksave and doing a normal save even more. This happens with checkpoints too and sometimes the game just randomly crash. maybe it's Alma, who knows... My Spec are: Intel Core-Quad 9550 2.8 Ghz no OC 2 GB DRR2-533 (bottle-necking) MoBo Asus Commando Ati Radeon HD 5770 no OC with propietary drivers
