Just remember to unselect Shader Mode 2.0++ from the Video Options or the game will run at a crawl, unfortunately this Mode is selected automatically but kills FPS, Shader Mode 2.0(or lower) is the one to select.

I don't know, i've already played the full game but it says "one short tutorial and one mission" so i gather they are refering to the start of the game where you go through a sort of 'dream/tutorial level' and maybe the start of the 'real' game

This demo shows off the "Mainframe" maps. You also get to meet a few different enemy characters.

The PC version is nice because it is a "Developer's Cut" version.

Lots of extra stuff to look at.

Go to the graphics shaders option and turn to 2.0, *NOT 2.0++*".

It has a bit where you give your dna to a panel, then you kill guys and it basically finishes with you getting past that guy in the mechanical suit. Demo is short, and there are a few slides that show you what buttons to press and the med panels etc. I didn't like the demo much.

just tried it out. i liked it. the graphics look very good and i enjoyed the game play. all settings as high as they go (disregarding the 2++ option) and it ran very very smooth on my system. no noticable slow downs at all.

only thing i didnt like is the swearing. i have a thing with vulgarity...specially the f-word. which is why i have chat turned completely off when i play css. hehe.

Pretty nice demo.. I liked it. Although it's pretty short and had some goofy control settings & no save system, I liked the voice acting and graphics. If Doom3:RoE wasn't coming out in the next few weeks,I"d get it now. I just might pick it up later though...
