the system requirement of this game is very low!!! this is only possible with AMD optimized games. unlike NVIDIA, AMD think about gamers pocket while giving eye candy visuals and performance :) :)

hardware wise NVIDIA is supirior to AMD no doubt, and AMD knows that. thats why they are spending money to optimize as much as modern and next gen titles possible for example BF4, and the THIEF etc. i'm going to buy r7 260x for thief :D :D

I would say max settings potentially, but be sure to have a cooling mat or something for your laptop so it doesn't overheat and impact performance (idk what sort of cooling that your laptop would have built in, I just know laptops overheat easier than a desktop.)

np, what really helps you, you're above recommended for a 108p resolution, which is what GD bases everything on, but you're at a 720p res like I am, AND the demo's well optimized, so the game should be, have fun :D I can speak from experience for overheating, my laptop here can't take much, it can handle most games without overheating, but, games like XCOM, it gets hot after one mission XD

i was kind of traumatized by the first one, it's the thoughest, hardest, , puzzliest, most annoying game i've ever played.. and the combos and control doesn't really help.. plus, it looses the castlevania sense in a way, but i respect the game very much.. it's still cool, epic and cinematic

did you try using a controller? it helps so much. If you reconfigure your keys it's not bad with a mouse and keyboard, unlike Deadpool. But DmC I think has the best PC controls for a hack n slash.

I haven't played the demo yet so I can't say, Darksiders II does have good controls though, then again, both games are very fast paced, frantic hack n slash games (darksiders 1 and 2). I don't know what to do to help you then, for the controls, it may be more fine tuned though before launch, the game isn't out until the end of the month (26th...I want to say?), or fixed in a patch.

nah, how to say this, it was the physics actually, gabriel's movement was more floating/slippery compared to dmc, mgrr or darksiders, and it's not precise, especially on certain platforming.. and the combos, i didn't used them all even til i finished the game, and there was so many of them, which was a waste.. and i can't stand them puzzles, i'm too lazy XD.. hey Bt, +1 for you for being helpful

In that case stick with controler,I'm sure controls will be great for controlers too once the game is launched :)

So I downloaded the Demo,played it and got great news....PLayed it on highest settings with Vsync turned ON smoothly on my native resolution...No lag at all.The game goes smoothly in cutscenes and while playing.And I'm sure that final release will be polished even more :))

Well the game is made on the same engine as first one was made.But stil has better graphics :)
For exsample open 2 tabs in your google chrome (or wahtever browser u use) and watch the gameplay of first game and gameplay of second game,there is difference :).Lords of Shadow 2 looks much more beautiful :)

@Stitch123 With that CPU and ramm that you have you will play it on ultra for sure.That GFX you ahve will not slow you down :)

mrkac, laptops tend to not have the cooling of a desktop, so they overheat faster and slow gameplay down. While you're potentially right, acidflash has a point, too.

That about cooling is true,it is.But still Castlevania has great optimization so maxing out this game will not be a problem for him.Especialy with that CPU and Ramm he has which hel a lot.

well yeah, I'm not saying hardware will be an issue, I'm just saying that bad cooling could cause FPS drops, a good external fan/cooling pad will help in most cases though :)

Comparing the PS3/X360 quality, I must say I'm really impressed, the PC version even on the lowest settings got more polygon and more details than the console version!

PC games always look better than console, with a PC you have more options and more hardware that can be utilized :) Although, that being said, I think the only thing that can compare to GTA V would be GTA V on PC or PS4/XBO. (due to GTA V looking great and all being loaded at once for seamless gameplay, unless you replay a mission)
