My thoughts?

The game is alright. It's nothing to write home about, that's for sure. If you like Max Payne you'll probably like this game, since that's essentially what it is minus Rockstar's style. It looks pretty good and performs well, even on my system with everything enabled except soft shadows @ 1600x1200 (in-game AA, 4x AF). On normal the game seems to be pretty difficult, but there are "Hard" and "Nightmare" settings for those who feel like a challenge. One thing I do like about the game is cover is emphasized. If you don't use cover to your advantage you'll die quite often. Load times are a bit harsh, even when quickloading after you die.

Yeah .. there are 2 demos , each with different mission.
though notice that you cant install both demos at same time. you need to uninstall the initial demo first.

Yes this game has a physics engine

Yep. You can destroy entire buildings in some cases. Columns inside buildings break apart as you shoot them, and the ragdoll effects on bodies are pretty decent.

Yea this game isn't that bad, pretty similar to Max Payne 2, but thats not a bad thing :)

But no widescreen support??!!

Yup, I tried editing the file too, and even setting it to read only, just reverts back to 4:3

Played through both of them, if I said to pick a demo I would say play demo 2, although they are both pretty fun. Its definetely somewhat of a budget title, but not bad :)

Dam it magus this game keeps crashing on me too, i play for a bit though and if they can get the crashing to go away i might buy it, from what i played of it all 1 minute that is, it was alot of fun and very hard.
