Not bad. How did it perform on your rig? SLI work? I ask because our rigs are very comparable aside from a 512 KB cache difference on CPUS ;p

That 512KB cache difference would'nt do much difference @ high res like 1600x1200 :p , or would it ??
i just started downloading the demo so expect a response in a not short while .. i have dial-up so take that into considration :o

I'm getting the demo, now from fileplanet....I've been wondering what this game would play and be like, thought I'd give it a shot when released.

heh...I think this demo was supposed to be out LAST March...I remember eagerly looking forward to the demo, but after June rolled around and it still wasn't out...I lost interest.

I tell you what. The PC market is so starved for Role Playing games I'll take what I can get.

I like it, It takes awhile to get use to but its actually a decent game. Reminds me alot of Drakan (one of my Favorite games). Its alot easier to control if you lock the camera to your desired hieght, it will then control alot like Morrowind and Drakan (more like Drakan). The experiance and character customization is decent but the demo really limited you alot.

The graphics over all are decent, not the best but definetly not the worse. It does seem to have alot of shimmering/texture crawling, haven't tried it with clamp on so that might fix it. AA also seems to be broken, atleast for me.

Animation really needs to be fixed though, I mean there is not even an animation for picking items up... they just disappear into your inv. I also don't like how the game discards multiple items of the same kind, I guess theres no way to horde tons of items and sell them at a shop in this game.

Over all a decent game, not a must have but it deserves a look over if you liked Morrowind and Drakan.

Morrowind is my fav RPG of all times :D

I gave it another try this morning.....My statement still stands "It stinks, imo". The menu and controls are aweful, playing the game reminds me nothing of Morrowind (except that its an RPG)....The controls feel sloppy, loose and I hate the setup. The menus look like something from the 90's and are buggy(I know its a demo :rolleyes: ). As for gameplay, the little I did play just seems bland.

I gave this a try.
It seems like it could look and play a little better. If it came out last year it might have been something to see. Controls and menus weren't great (but it's a demo, as PaiN pointed out).
Also, I had to switch to 1 monitor because it doesn't capture the mouse at all. That's not really a showstopper, but it's annoying and kinda silly to see it in newer games.

To make the controls tighter make sure you lock the camera, then when you move the mouse left and right your character will turn with it. It basically becomes the Drakan controls. I guess I was also the only one who enjoyed Drakan...

Anyone else think the graphics kinda look like WoW? DL reminds me of it and what I think WoW should look like (at the minimum).

That Demo even if you can call it a demo got way to many bugs :thumbdwn: graphics and game play is nothing exciting also.
