USA v02.20(10/02/2006), The game is not exactly good to play with hardware mode yet due to various graphic glitches. In software mode the experience is much better. Text in menus, and various glitches during regular gameplay (Sky, bushes, ground, etc) are visible in hardware mode. In software mode these glitches will eventually disappear after a few seconds.
