Game doesn't release till next week but you can purchase the game already online and download it to play. I just went ahead and bought it, I loved the demo so I can't wait to waste my life away on it. Hope the MP is as good as D2.

Is this MP only? Reading the info I couldn't tell. i see the comment about 2 MP modes but wasn't sure if that meant all that it has or that just means, we have these 2 MP modes (or whatever).

I still have another hour left in the download... ****s taking forever even at my max bandwidth (downloading at 1Mb/s).

I was getting a pretty good download rate and just noticed I was only 21% done. Surprised, I checked and wow, the demo is 1.4 gig! It had better start for me. :)

I haven't tried the demo of this yet.

Can anyone make any gameplay comparisons?

What games is it similar to?

Diablo 2 but at a slower pace, like Divine Divinity.

Does it have some depth? Like a story, dialog and side quests? Or is it just like Diablo 2 where you basically just fight and collect items?

|MaguS|

Yeah, all 3. You can compare it to Titans Quest I would say... except with multiple races.

EDIT: Game requires 10Gb of HD Space for install. o_0

Hmm... interesting. I might have to give it a shot.

I'm a bit weary of games labeled "action-rpg" ever since Diablo 2. I loved the demo and bought the game as soon as I had the money for it. I ended up playing it off and on for like a week and a half and getting bored to tears because it was the same thing over and over.

I liked the Titan Quest demo though...

I might have to give that another shot too.

The game has a unique tutorial, you play as one of the fathers of another character who is basically a lvl 80 mage... you just own everything in your path untill you come across the boss.

Its pretty demanding of a game, Im getting 30FPS or so with no AA. Gonna try to see if im CPU bound...

|MaguS|,

Do you have any problems getting the configuration utility for the game to display properly?

I was having problems getting options within the utility to show correctly. The utility would show some options truncated and I couldn't save the options I'd change as a result.

Nope, haven't ran to a bug yet... only issue I have seen was some weird shadow artifacting on a building but im blaming nvidia with that since all other shadows looked perfect.

Game does have steep requirements though.

What kind of frames are you getting at that resolution?

Im getting 30+ FPS but I think its due to me being CPU limited, the game uses alot of physics and would even take advantage of a Physx card if I had one (jAkUp send me yours! :p ).

Try turning off that physic particles thing. I bet that will give you a boost if you're CPU bound.

Time for a 3.6Ghz overclocked Core 2 Magus? :p

I had the same problem in Windows XP. I tried disabling my themes and stuff and nothing worked.
