Nope. This game is a shit load of fuck. If you want to test out your rig, get Farcry 3 and max it out.
Disappointing, but the game, so far, is pretty enjoyable; having not played Blood Money, I don't have any meaningful context for Absolution's supposedly inferior gameplay, so it's nowhere near as offensive to me as it would be to series veterans. I'll pick up Blood Money after this, considering it's the better game, but, other than the checkpoint reset, it's a decent game.
