During the normal walking bits, usually you could guess, like walking up stairs, or through a long corridor, you could see the loading coming a mile off if you'd walked up a few flights of stairs. The vehicle bits did kinda catch you off guard though. Driving at high speed, thinking how cool it was to be going so fast, then you freeze.
Still, I'll still protest it's my favourite game so far. That's testament to how good it is I suppose.
I ordered the 360 version from PLAY.com but the cretins sent me the PC version which I did not want! So I've had to go through the process of sending it back and they sent off the 360 version instead. It's a shame actually because I realised I could also have gotten a refund. Now I've got nothing to keep me occupied over the Bank Holiday
Oh well... I guess I can continue to prepare for the convention.

I'm getting a Mac soon, (the new one) and I was wondering how well it runs and what speculations you are running at? I completely forgot about the idea of using Bootcamp to play my PC games so this is good to hear, especially if it runs a game like Bioshock well.
