You have to be patient, and even run from encounters that do get hostile if you mess up and don't want to kill things, I've done 3-4 of the missions with a kill count of 0. Never gotten Ghost on them (do not be spotted), but I have done it without killing a bunch of people. It takes a lot of waiting for people to talk (so they move on), waiting for them to split up, watch where they go so you know when to strike, and using the right powers so you spend less time getting to them and more time quietly taking them out.
I still can't seem to go one single encounter without killing anyone though. I must be an idiot or something when it comes to stealth games. I guess my ending won't be as good as someone who goes and doesn't kill a ton of people

Alera, one thing i disagree with you on are the controls...much better with the Xbox controller, tried KB/mouse, just didn't feel intuitive enough, unlike other games.

Can't say I have spent much time with the controller, but with 30 something minutes of controller play, I am of the view that mouse/keyboard works better, at least in my opinion
Considering, of course, my biasness against controllers

They don't. They just make it a better game...which I am more likely to buy immediately instead of later
if graphics makes or breaks a game then your not a true gamer anyways. Don't like it don't but it, its your loss not the REAL gamers that play games for story and enjoyment.

The fact that dx9 games play fine in Vista and 7?
If you can find any info saying otherwise anywhere on the internet, fantastic. I can't.

I didn't hold back. If there was guard, and I saw said guard, I killed him. Even iced a few civies i thought looked at me wrong. The only guards I left alone for the most part were the tall boys (the ones in the really tall walker type things).
Brilliant fun game.
i started by nont killing anyone... later on, just a couple.. and then every third or forth guard close to the end...
still, i mostly choked them and my chaos lever was ALWAYS low.
if i ever play again i am going in guns blazing!

Those issues were cleared up in a patch. Crysis 2 devs didn't do a fantastic job with it, but that's about the only other example I can think of. All my other DX11 games play fantastic.
DX11 support was a possibility but even that doesn't work properly (as evidenced by the performance issues with Batman: Arkham City).
We're still in that phase of PC gaming where advancements in image quality aren't being utilized as much as they were in the past. Remember the first time Valve showed off the Source engine? Around that time, a lot of developers made the jump to DX9 and they're still using it now after 8 years. I'd love to see developers use the latest DX11 features like hardware tessellation and better multi-threaded rendering.
