Agreed, it is a lot of fun. The game is more difficult than the first version, but only in the sense that you need to experience the challenges first-hand in a few situations before you can breeze through them.
I mean, the first time I opened a chest and a badass midget jumped out and filled my face with buckshot, it was unexpected and I stood my ground attempting to trade shots in the open with the wrong weapon. This is not necessarily difficult, it was simply not something I was expecting or was prepared to handle at that time. As I played through the game, there were several of these "Oh, well now I know better" moments. This carried over to the second playthrough somewhat, as new versions of enemies and their tactics were discovered; however, as I was more familiar with the game, deaths usually came about from lack of patience after long sessions.
I'm trying to see if I should offload the Physx at medium setting to my CPU or keep it on my GPU.
i7-3770K (3.5 GHz)
From the the TechSpot testing, it seems like I would be better off with letting my CPU handle the Physx.

I'm trying to match their results to my equipment.
In their test, using the following equipment:
i7-3960X Extreme Edition (3.30GHz)
At max Physx settings they achieved 60 FPS using only the GPU.
When offloading to the CPU, performance improved to 74 FPS.
Granted, there was a big gap between this CPU and mine, but it still seems that I would be better off allowing the Physx to be run by my CPU.
I guess I will give it a try and see how it goes.
