Game Review - Tux Racer

About the performance:
I get 28 - 35 fps on an Athlon 800, with same video card & drivers,
at 900x600 resolution. So I guess you need a faster CPU :)

Or maybe a GeForce GTS

Well, with my current hardware config I get much better results with other games which have far better gfx quality/complexity (D3, Q3A). And to be honest, I don't think that the Tux Racer gfx justifies an Athlon800 or a GTS. Anyways, I am quite happy with the game speed and they also put "performance" on their future improvement list ((:

I've been running tuxracer on my machine at 1024*768 with an athlon 500 and a GeForce 256 DDR getting a wonderful play (as long as no cron job's running :) . It is really worth to try it, the best linux-race game i've tried yet.

No way to save games? I'm getting tired of starting over every time.

I'm running a PIII 733 with 640mb RAM and a GeForce 2 GTS 64mb DDR, getting 140fps...
