Because i was so freaking bored i downloaded it and played it.
Looks and plays like the full version, no surprise there.
I'd forgotten how damn cool it looks when the imp(?) shows his ugly face for the first time. Looks fantastic when he crawls over that pipe.
I cannot wait for a "real" game to use the D3 engine. Not that D3 is a bad game, i enjoyed it a lot, but it feels a bit like a tech demo.

I second this. An Aliens/Predator game would rock as would a dinosaur based game. We need a good dinosaur game: everything Trespasser SHOULD have been.

I hope that the next AVP would use this engine, Imagine you turn a corner and seeing a alien right there in your face. Imagine what they could do.

LoL i thought the same thing ^^^. Playing the demo i said to myself "this is a Great AvP game!!.. exept with a Doom theme"

I'm actually fairly surprised it ran so well on my Pny5200. On medium settings, no shadows @ 1024x768 85Hz it stayed around 15-30 fps and was actually pretty smooth.

Actually I think Farcry would be better for an island/outdoor environment like Trespasser, not to mention it has a better physics system than Doom 3 (remember the physics in the original Trespasser? BIG part of the game). Though it would be pretty cool seeing dinosaurs in the Doom 3 engine, all that bump mapping and specularity would really make them look cool. Actually, why the hell AREN'T there more games that have dinosaur enemies? I mean seriously, what could be more fun than fighting a T-rex? Eh? That's right, NOTHING!

I wonder, could you use mods on the demo?

*shrugs*

Eh, doesn't really matter to me though. I got the full version.
