Looks pretty decent, people that have played the demo are comparing it to fear.

Yes I agree. What I would like is a futuristic FPS where you play a sexy chick like Lara Croft. That would surely rattle my bones.

So many people are tired of WWII themed games, but so few of those same people are tired of posting "OMG WTF WWII?!?" in these threads.

I might pass on this one though.

Uh yeah, that's kinda how it works. They keep making WWII themed games so we are in turn going to continue to complain.

I like it. I think it looks good but still runs really well.

Here a few screenshots from the very beginning. I sacrificed myself in the last couple just to get the screenshot. :)

I kinda enjoyed it, absolutely nothing special BUT I've been dying for a new fps lately. Graphics are pretty nice, and the ragdoll and particle effects are pretty sweet.

The major downer was VERY predictable enemy placement, cheap shock tactics and after FEAR, the AI is shocking.

Fine, but don't do it in a thread designed for feedback from people who downloaded and played the demo.

If you tried it and didn't like it because you're tired of WWII shooters, fine.

A few more. I'm really liking it so far. It's a good action game, looks really good and it runs at very high framerates. I'll probably give 8xS a shot soon since I don't think I've dipped below 100 fps yet. Edit: 8xS is fine during the confined spaces but once into larger areas, I dropped into the 30s. In the smaller areas, it usually stayed around 58-78 with 8xS.

A few of these show the time shield in action. Pretty cool. The screenshot backdrop of the outside looks pretty cool but I've yet to reach the outside (if they allow that in the demo).

Anyone know how to make it run widescreen? I see the FOV and other familiar settings in the config.ini but the resolution setting doesn't look normal so I'm not sure what to change it to.

The MP40 and MP44 gun models looks pretty good. Are there any others in the demo, like a K98 or K43?

I haven't tried it yet, but what is the "timeshield"?

It's a shield type thing that you can use to freeze bullets / redirect things at the enemy. One time, a guy threw a grenade at me and I got the shield up in time to redirect it back at him. When it's up and nothing is happening, it reminds me of the shields in Halo and Quake 4 except it's much larger. It has a pretty cool effeect when things are hitting it and stuff though. I think people can walk through it though (or maybe it's just the zombies, not sure yet). I tried putting it up once the gang of zombies attacked but they came right threw it.

The blurb they provide says this: Temporal Shield, use your ubernatural powers to freeze bullets in place and lethally redirect them at your enemies.
