Concept good, execution not so much.

Nuff said.

So it safe to say "skip it" or wait till the price is under 20.00 or less

yap, brilliant idea, but piss poor execution. While playing the demo everything about this game felt weird. Controls, aiming, look of the characters, hit boxes all was sub-par.

I liked the demo... some weird parts, but every game has those. I thought control and aiming were great.

I got a retail copy at Target tonight... weird thing, it has no manual? Did anyone get a manual?

I'm installing it now... will play it in an hour or so.

OK, first off, if the mouse aim is messed up in this game, it is some problem on your comp. The game has perfect mouse aim, absolutely perfect. I have been replaying Half-Life recently and have old-school perfect mouse aim in mind, and this game matches it. Note the game is somewhat of a hog, I have it on low Physx and only 4xAA to keep 60fps, so maybe you are getting framedrops if you notice lag.

Anyway...

Game is fun. It is basically the demo, only a full game, so I am not going to spend much time going on about it. Of the things different in the main game:

1) There is a cool weapon upgrade feature... while modern weapons in ancient times is a rare bit of fun, you mostly will be using old weapons. This is offset in annoyance a bit by using points, like leveling up I guess, on improving the old weapons to fire faster, reload faster or whatever else. Kind of neat...

2) The level I played was World War 1, and it had a Crysis sort of open level feel... the objectives are linear, and the pathways limited, but it does feel much more open than a corridor shooter... again, think Crysis.

3) There are modern enemies back in time with you... you probably know/assumed that, but they were not in the demo, so I thought I would point it out.

4) There is a mission select, and you can bounce back and forth between time periods if you like.

Here are some pics I took of the World War 1 level... they are very brown/grey, but the opening level had a lot of color, so I think it is a World War 1 thing (which makes sense).

Very nice textures.

NarcissistZero, what do you think of the AI and gameplay so far? I enjoyed the demo, but mowing down Confederates didn't seem particularly challenging or anything. I figure it'll be fun, and I think PC Gamer gave it a decent review; odd though that the general gaming populace is so against this one.

It seems time travel games could be so good but often falter. I enjoyed TimeShift enough for the price, but I honestly think they really blew it on the storytelling and the alternate timeline was not particularly interesting. This one as well, seems like a cool idea to get people to be able to play all throughout time, but maybe the concept itself leaves people cold. Maybe it's just too hokey.
