Kinda interesting, I got Peter Jacksons King Kong for pc and It is one of the first games I have seen that has dual core support. The game is actually good and I like being King Kong more than Jack. Its still fun when you control Jack also. The game runs real good but I can see for shure that if you had a dual core system it would help out quite abit. Some parts of the game has alot of interaction going on with the ai, many Huge Brachiosaurus dinosaurs stampeding through a valley and they keep on coming. It ran good on my pc with a single core but the ai on this game is intensive at times and a fast system is really needed to play the game.

A dual core machine would help alot because if you had a dual core system the ai would have its own core and the game would run perfect. With a single core processor at times the processor will bogg down in certain places in the game (with any single core cpu). A good video card is also a very good idea.
