I bought the game last month....couldn't get past the first mission because it keep locking up in a sound loop. I wasn't too happy, took a liking to it right off the bat.
think, I'll give the demo a try, since my system is stable now...

Here are a few screenshots at 1920x1200 4xAA/16xAF. I think the AA level could be raised quite a bit since the framerate was pretty high.

Just from the very beginning of the demo.

No problem.

I don't know yet. I need to play it some more. I'll try to get some action shots next.

Edit: I'll let others comment on the gameplay. It's not really my type of game.

Seems a decent game. Unfortunately it's randomly freezing my system. I get loud high pitched shreeks, then the game stutters and I have to hit reset.... sigh :thumbdwn:

I sniped an ememy, but didn't put kill shot in him....I could see only legs sticking out from a low wall where the injured man had fallen behind, they moved as he writhed in agony, I could faintly hear the moans of pain. I panned the city for enemy snipers...before popping out of prone to move left for a better vantage on my victim, I had to swing wide, finally finding new cover in rubble. Now having a clear view of of the soon to be dead enemy's torso, I sighted through the scope taking aim for the right chest at heart level. I held my breath and triggered......riding the bullet in slow motion until it entered the body, killing with a satisfing thud.

That's bad news. I haven't gotten the demo yet but that is exactly what happened to me with the retail game :(

Suppose I should of read the readme!

Set audio hardware acceleration to basic and it just ran stable for 10 mins!

Hopefully will get a full game out of it now. Tell you the ammount of incompatabilites I have had with this audigy 2 are alarming especailly since it's such a popular card!

Screenshots does not appeal me... looking boring and dull to be honest.

Hopefully you're not basing that on mine. Mine were from the very beginning when not a lot was going on. Although, once I did reach some action, things didn't change a lot so I didn't bother posting anymore screenshots. That was still just a few minutes into the demo so maybe someone a little further along can provide better ones.

Here are some from 3dgamers:

Well it is a bombed out German city during WWII, so what do you expect? Rainbows?

I like the premise and tried to like but I think it has the worse control scheme I ever seen in a fps. And the drab colors are nauseating.
