The Game Scorpion: Disfigured is Not Very Good in Stereoscopic 3D

This new game called Scorpion: Disfigured caught my attention and I decided to try it out by playing in stereoscopic 3D with the help of 3D Vision, but I was very quickly disappointed from the results I got. But in order not to get the wrong impression about the game I need to point out that I’m not impressed with it’s performance when playing in stereoscopic 3D mode only, the game is fine and with no issues when it is being played normally. So I’ll be focusing on the S3D mode and what to expect from this title and not on the game itself being good or bad… ;)

With default settings the game, no profile for it, the game looks quite nice at first look in stereoscopic 3D and it seems it also takes advantage of PhysX. The convergence is almost good and the depth level is not needed that much, as most of the objects in far distance get too blurred. But taking a closer look you’ll see that the convergence can benefit a bit with manual adjusting in order to better see the gun you are holding, so you can play a bit with that. But if you try to increase the depth level a bit (it is Ok only at low level), you’ll start noticing a bit of ghosting around some objects and here disabling the Depth of Field option (setting it to Off from the settings) can help a bit in decreasing ghosting…

But then again, when you start playing a bit you’ll also notice some other “bugs” that are only available when you are playing the game in stereoscopic 3D mode. I’m talking about things like completely different shadows rendered for the left and right eye and thus creating a strange feeling when playing the game. Also there are some weird diamond shaped figures appearing from your gun after you shoot or from objects that have smoke coming out of them etc. All these are making kind of weird and unpleasant experience playing the game in stereoscopic 3D mode, but it is Ok if you play it normally. So anyway, my suggestion is to just stay away from this game if you plan to try it in S3D, but if you just want to play it normally it should still be fun for you if you like this type of games. The atmosphere in the game is quite nice too, so it could’ve benefited a lot from S3D if there were no graphical glitches present, but maybe they’ll be fixed at a later time with a patch…
