Well, I must be the only one who was left rather unimpressed by the demo.

From a technicall point of view the engine seems solid and feature-rich but the gameplay otherwise looks dull.

Shoting a few guys in a semi-futuristic industrial environment full of boxes and other artifical obstacles does not seem all thatinnovative nor a jaw-dropping expeience.

Now, Far Cry with its lush jungle and vast world... that was really a memorable experience.

Not all the levels are industrial, there are office buildings and even aptartment complexs in the game aswell. I like it because many games try to include large enviroments which I find annoying, I love close quarter battles.

Because it was repitious and the enemies were dumb as doornails. Oh must I mention also that to scare you it had to constantly use the "watchout for the enemy behind you" trick. If Doom3 had better AI and didn't use cheap tricks it would have been better, I never had a problem with the lack of open areas but atleast they could have made the areas look somewhat different more often...

I will eventually pick up the DVD version of this, but not for $55-60 dollars!


I don't think any game is worth that much anymore......

Anyway, played the living hell out of the SP demo and am still playin the MP demo. I initially had a "meh" kinda feeling towards the game (partially because of the annoying amount of hype surrounding it), but have recently warmed up to it.

The slowmo effect and graphics is all thats got me interested in this gamebut I think i'll skip this one. Gameplay and multiplayers seem extremly dull.

The Specialists mod for Half-Life had it and it was freaking sweet

But I guess for a retail game it is new...
