Shafted by Sega (Iron Man for PC)

I, like many who bought the PC version of Iron Man were led to believe by Sega it would look and play like the XBox 360/Playstation 3 based on pre release screenshots (and why the hell not, afterall, a PC can be an equal, if not superior, piece of kit). Many game sites even attribute screenshots meant for the XBox360/PS3 to the PC version, something Sega never corrected until bait and switch complaints rolled in. Instead the PC owners got given a poor Playstation 2 port.

Just to see how bad it is here are the screenshots (PC top, PS3 bottom), click them for a larger version. (Screenshots copyright IGN/Sega).
