PC version has high res textures (just like with Max Payne 3).  Play it on a 60" DLP, and looks great.  Another great thing about pc is it doesn't explode if I play it for more than a half hour.  Also if I do have a problem, I can fix it myself, and don't have to call India... I can put as many hard drives in it as I want, without spending $100 for a 20gb (05-07), or $120gb (now).

 If you wanted good graphics, you should've got a pc, or at least a ps3.

Yeah, and another great thing about PCs is that you need to buy new graphics cards and/or a $1000 rig to experience games instead of paying 30 bucks to experience a slightly visually inferior version of an otherwise awesome game!! GO PC!!

Hello obvious non pc gamer.  You are so clueless it's downright amuzing.  I upgrade my rig once every five or six years.  Last upgrade?  $500.  This included 4gb ram, a quad core processor, a 850w psu, and a GTX460.  Guess what?  I can still max out nearly every game out there @1080p.  And I use DDR2, a two generation old gpu, and the oldest quad core Phenom II (940).

 

The 360, on the other hand, is 7 years old, cost $400 at launch, and breaks down every six months.  My pc runs great.

 

You need to have a brain before attempting to be a smart ass,  TxtBin.  :roll:

I know the game graphics are not the best but the gameplay and story is good and that's probably why it had a high score.
Games don't always have to look beautifull to kick ass --> *Minecraft * Cough*

 

And about the Xbox he's right , it's hardware is antique but still the game could have been made better looking , even for the xbox 360.

 

Still a great game tough

I grew up with Playstation 2 games. This does not look anything like them.

Anyway the simplest answer is to set up a gaming PC, which would grant you a high degree of customization, and despite popular belief would not destroy your bank account if done correctly. However, it can get complicated, and without a PC gamer friend to guide you or a load of free time to do your homework, a console may just be simpler and in the end cheaper. Now I kind of want to set up the PS2 again... Had some great games.
