Wow, not the UE3? Feels and looks like it but it's an impressive engine anyway.

It doesn't use UE3? That's a huge surprise. The game looks and feels like a game on that engine. It's also optimized very well, much like a game on that engine. The one thing that made me question whether this game uses UE3 is the fact that AA is readily available on AMD/ATI cards, and it doesn't seem to make a huge impact on performance. MLAA is basically free, while 4xFSAA will drop the framerate average into the high 30's on max settings @ 1920x1200. This game makes incredible use of MLAA. Also, I can't get over the lighting in this game. It's brilliant!!!

Here's a runthrough of the demo in 1080P by yours truly (sorry if I suck):

Enjoy.

Did you try the plasma mortar? It's awesome. Just lay down a wall of plasma bombs and watch everything fry.

Yeah, I'm shocked it's not UE3...it looks and feels exactly like it.

This game has a bit of a throwback feel to it, circa 1999.

Just press 'E'. Both guns are available in the demo, but not all of the mods/upgrades are available.
