Oh I'm going to turn this on tonight! Didn't realise they had actually turned this on yet. Rather excited to see if I can actually use this without any issues.

I know everyone is amazed by all the particles, but it really looks like absolute crap and I've yet to see a game that makes it look good. Sure, it's visually impressive to see that many particles reacting, but it just looks unappealing to to me. It makes it look like water particles or smoke and the particles have a weird weight behind them.

Well, it looks kinda pretty, but a kinda pretty that was tacked on afterwards and doesn't really add anything.

That's all PhysX ever is it'd be nice to have it used for actual physics, but I'm happy enough with some visual flair.Itsbastiat, Dawngate

I would be even prettier if the plane becam purple and yellow/orange for a little while
But it is pretty

Those stream particles are pretty, as are the medic tool effects, and what they've done with jump pads, but the best parts are really what happens when you shoot at stuff. Look at debris from explosions and the sparks that fly all over the place when you shoot your lasers at a wall. That adds a bit to the feel of the game. This is a good demo:

I wish you could disable the lift effect. Wasted GPU power, what's cool is the explosions and stuff.Find me on the Steams

Explosions and rubble are great looking, the lift and swirly smoke crap is meh.

I like the look of all of the physx stuff. There are probably better uses for it other than the grav lifts, but the med stuff, jumps, debris is nice.
It has been used in other games for improved physics... In batman arkham city, physx is used to make realistic paper flutter around the floors. If you run into it, it acts like paper, and lifts/sticks to your leg etc. Thats just one example ive seen, but its a really nice little addition.
