- related to the above -> not being able to fine tune the game's graphical quality to suit specific PC setups/preferences. Only general Gamer/Advanced/Hardcore - and if there is more, why isn't it on the demo; after all this is not a feature from the console - consoles only have one setting;
- the "press Start; the please adjust your TV settings in the brightness menu, straight from the consoles;
- the aim assistance being turned on by default (good thing when using a console controller; completely out of touch for a keyboard+mouse combo, which is what every PC FPS gamer uses)
On to your question:
I played the demo and.. the game looks like a regular multi-player with regular graphics for what we are accustomed with recent releases. It does not stand out. I'm not going to buy the game based on this demo. I've got many other games to buy first.
And it's too short to have a more broad opinion. And that is also because it shouldn't have been a multi-player demo. These types of games have their strength on single player experiences; the will to see what comes around the corner, what enemies to fight next and how; the beautiful scenarios; the multi-player is a nice add-on, but nothing more than that.
You have tons of multi-player games out there that excel at what they do. And you even have some that only work as intended in multi-player / co-op mode, like Left 4 Dead - single player in this game is only useful to help with level/map reconnaissance.
There, my 2 cents.
Actually... well no, I wouldn't only pay 2 cents for this game. But certainly not € 49,99.Edited by tpi2007 - 3/2/11 at 8:10am
