aside from the facial features, it looks like a tweaked unreal 2k4 engine to me. Yes-you feel like your there...but this demo didnt show me anything call of duty hasnt already done. I hope they just picked a bad level for the demo.

Also find it concerning that a 6800 ultra w/ 8xaf dips to 30fps while a x800xt w/ 16xaf only dips to 55fps.

Guess i spoke too soon..
Liking it more and more.

Runs great with 4xFSAA and 16xAF and it looks fantastic.
Some really nice effects in the game and the models look superb. (Guess i missed most of the goodies the first time i played it.)

Think i'll pre-order this baby.

holy crap that was fun! Basically it's the same thing from the walkthrough video, but it's hella fun to play. Been playing at 1280x1024 8xAF.. and it runs fairly smooth. There'll be fps drops, but only during big explosions. I imagine it'd run even better if I had a Athlon64... Basically I think the demo delivers on the goods (if only it was a little longer). Great gameplay/graphics.. I know I'll be buying this when it's out..

Meh... finally got around to playing it... I wasn't expecting much and it is still disappointing :\. I guess it might be because I can only take a hundred MoH games... a hundred and one is too much for me I guess lol :\.

I just tried it and I like it alot. Intense and in your face much like COD but I can tell I will like this better. Another game to suck our life away and lan liquid. I hope the COD expansion can hold us down until November. Multiplayer in this will own. ME wants MORE.

Agreed. I'm thinking the whole take on War shooters has run it's course. I'd like this game alot more if I hadnt played 12 war shooters in the last 3 years. I still have my eye on Brothers in Arms...but if that dissapoints-I think it's safe to say I'm burnt out on this theme.

Who would have thought that a 540 MB demo could be so short

alright...I played through it again....I'm liking it more, this time I tried some new techniques and had alittle fun, rather than a typical run through. For some reason AA doesnt work.....but I was @ 1280X1024 8xAF and I didnt go below 35 fps. And my system is @ stock. Not bad! I think I may just end up getting this yet. Wish they would have included 1 mp map as well....but hey...at least they gave us SOMETHING! Doom 3 has been out for a month and still no demo anywhere, so I have to give credit where it's due. I just hope the retail has smoother controls...they seem to drag a bit...feels like im playing with a normal rolly mouse rather than a mx310.
