Awesome demo, fantastic atmosphere. Very intense gameplay, although the demo level is far too short. Seems like a great game anyway.

Its been a very long time since I've played a sp demo or game for that matter all the way though, loved it and it'll definitely be on my buy list. btw, its kinda funny as i just finished the Band of Brothers series on dvd and most of the characteristics in the demo lvl are identical to episode 2 of that series, heh.

The scene when the german spitfires attack the boat with russian soldeirs looked familiar too

WOW! I love MOH:AA and this to me is suped up version. Damn amazing IMO. This game as also let me think twice about upgradeing a Ti4200 I have. I was able to max out everything including the sound to the highest quality with no hitch. Cant wait.

Yeppers. People complain how old it is. But its one of those engines that can run on any system and give good performance. I am getting 40-to over 90 FPS. I could just imagine the guys with 5900 and 9800's.

OMG! What a sweet game!

I've only gave it a quick try as it freaked me son out a bit, but that first scene of storming the village was bloody brilliant! It was just intense as hell, the graphics were stunning, and it is liquid smooth at 1024x768 for me on Bubbles with default 9700 speeds! (It's hot here this week, I'm clocking back.)

I can't wait to get a chance to sit down and get serious with this demo and get lost in it, it looks quite easy to get sucked into!

the gun with the scope on it i was referring to in my earlier post is the "FG42/SEMI AUTO"...it can be picked up near the dead body of a guy near the wall just before making it to the last flakk that you have to blow up. very easy to pick off enemies heads with this scoped gun. has anyone else used it? to pick up a weapon near dead enemy use the "use key" (F KEY BY DEFAULT)

Band of Brothers was awesome and this game is way cool in its own right.
