Well they've SAID that the game suports widescreen, but it's a farce.

It DOES run in widescreen resolutions.
It does NOT stretch the image.

However, it takes the ol' 4:3 image, and cuts OFF the top, bottom, and for some incredibly stupid reason, also cuts teh SIDES of teh image ofF!!

The way it is SUPPOSED to work is that it should ADD a bit of image to teh left adn right sides, thus increasing the FOV slightly.

So for those of us that try to run in widescreen, we actually get much LESS game image than we should.

Simply aweful. I was going to buy this game until i read that.

All the game would need to fix this is a FOV settings the config file. But even THAT has not been done.

Very very disappointing.

I dont own a widescreen monitor or anything but IGN said its Widescreen was great in the review and that people with widescreen option will be happy.

They have widescreen you idiot. Now please leave troll. You are most likely the same person a few posts up. I'm pretty sure all of the reviewers would have noticed that.

Yup, until someone figures out a tweak, us widescreen users have to live with a horribly cropped image.

I don't understand the nature of the complaint. There are no black lines at the sides and the image is not distorted, right? So, what is the problem?

Did you even look at the pic that was linked? The image is cropped vertically and no FOV is gained.

I guess, I just do not see why you should gain FOV just because the screen proportions are different. The way it is done now makes sense to me.

Because the whole point of widescreen is to have a wider viewing area. Thats how most games are that properly support widescreen.

Have you ever watched a movie in standard format, and then in widescreen??? Notice the difference...its wider.......... The field of view is increased and what was once off screen on the 4:3 aspect movie is now visible.
