Really cool demo, really nice graphics. But, is anyone else getting a little tired of the WW2 games? Don't get me wrong, most of them are very fun to play...But how many more can dev's crank out? There are only so many battles that occured lol. IMO we need more WW2 games like RtCW. Same genre/time period, different storyline etc. Anyone else think the same?

There are so many untold missions and experiances in WW2 that they can keep cranking them out... they can also make unique missions up just to satisfy the gamers.

But to answer your question, nope Im not. I love WW2 games because of the atmosphere, the sounds of a raging battle off in the distance and the mass chaos that is in war.

Maybe its in there waiting for the Rel80 drivers.... aren't those supposed to capable of switching SLI on/off without a reboot ????
Anybody tried the buggy 81.26 to see if dual cores give better results ?
Going to have to stash the cash for major upgrade this Xmas..

Yeah I agree. I can't get enough WW2 games. I'd like to say that I'm tired of it and I want to see something else, but the fact is that WW2 is the best possible setting for a real-world based FPS. Not to mention, like Magus says here, there are so many stories to tell that it can actually stay fresh, at least for a little while longer.

This game is great. I can see where the guy is coming from about WW2 FPSs, but IMO it depends on the game. I thought MoH:Pacific Assault sucked balls, and I'm sure MoH:European Assault (new one) on xbox/ps2/gc sucks balls too.

I like WW2 setting a lot, but if the game isn't good, then I'm not interested. If the game IS good, then yea I'm interested. CoD to me felt like war online. The first one had a good and cinematic campaign (stalingrad ), but the multiplayer was really awesome, best non-vehicle tdm multiplayer since MoH:Allied Assault. The UO expansion made it even better with vehicles. It didn't make it as good or as revolutionary as BF1942, but it was still a great game, and having night maps like Berlin and other sweet maps, just made it a lot of fun. It was great rolling with a small pack of tanks through Rhineland getting some snipers and jeeps.

Anyway, I think CoD2 will be great. As long as the multiplayer is as good as the first one, then it'll be a great game, and I have no doubt that that's how itll be.

Performance of this demo, the graphics are really nice IMO, I showed it to my dad and he said it was as nice as FEAR (I show him all my graphically intense games, HL2 looks the best for him ), and I think it looks pretty damn nice since it's WW2 and it's different than Doom3/Fear/Half-Life 2. The performance is OK. I think I get around 40-45fps, sometimes it slows down to about 28-30 in a super intense fight, but its all playable. Playing at 1280x1024 noAA with all details put to maximum and AF enabled, I think it's pretty good for a 6800gt.

My opinion...

This is demo is awsome. Based on the fact I have played it all, I can easily say its going to be game of the year for me. The graphics are beautiful, the sounds are stunning and tbh Im glad work pay me to sit on my arse playing this because the demo deserves nothing less then my employees to appreciate that fact. Easily puts all flavours of Battlefield back into the gutter where it rightly belongs.

9.5 out of 10... I would of given it 10, but I am not sure what the situation is on PunkBuster. *crosses fingers it will be left in tact.

Stunning... just stunning...

People complaining about low framerates with their super-doped PCs should better start to triple check their configurations... :P

It runs smoth (over 30fps) on my system at 1024x768 4XAA.

Not bad overall, if feels like the first CoD, plays like the first. The engine is nothing spectacular, though. Aside from some mild bloom (good thing developers are learning not to abuse of light effects) and nice smoke, the polycount of the levels still seems a bit low.

But the textures look really horrible! I just hope they just didn't include decent resolution textures in the demo to keep the size down...

People who liked the first CoD will not be disappointed, people looking for some novelty factor or tech freaks should start looking somewhere else.

Must be running low settings in texture and other things since well I couldn't believe you get 30+ FPS always at your resolution with 4xAA enabled...

It automatically sets the texture detail down on 128MB cards, and for some stupid reason they didn't include a texture detail setting in the options menu so you can't raise the detail even if you want to.

BTW, Im not seeing any ragdolls to whoever said there were. I only see the characters react when shot or blown up but onces their dead you can't interact with the corpses, like the original.
