Anyone else try this? It's really quite impressive considering it's running on a phone (I ran it on my iPhone 4), and performance was surprisingly really good. I'm interested to see where this goes, and to see how AI and other interactive elements affect performance. Anyway, read about it here (http://www.epicgames.com/technology/epic-citadel). Here are some SS I took while running the demo on my iPhone 4.

Looks a lot like the old unreal warfare engine to me. Not bad at all.

I wouldn't bother trying right now, until they update the demo.

If you’re wondering why I didn’t run Epic’s amazing Citadel demo, it’s because of the next major difference between the iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch: memory size.

The A4 in the iPod Touch appears to be a lower clocked version of what you get in the iPad, it only has 256MB of memory compared to the 4’s 512MB. Currently Epic’s Citadel demo treats the iPod Touch as an iPhone 4 and crashes before getting into the demo as a result. Epic should have an update out soon that fixes the problem by lowering texture quality to fit within the memory limits of the iPod Touch.

It is very impressive! The texture quality is very good, better than a few console games even. But then again, the iPhone 4 has more RAM than the current consoles :p

Controls are very bad though...

The controls are better than some other items out there.

The FPS seems quite low, but overall the visuals are very impressive :)

I loved how the leaves and branches on the trees flutter around too :D

UT3 looks better. It's a nice demo but the video is choppy. Depth of field and view distance is also limited. It looks pretty awesome considering the platform though :)
