Believe it or not, but the demo for this game is incredibly addictive! It may look and play very old school but it has an excellent nostaliga effect. Not to mention the story and whole universe seems very interesting. I especially like the use of muskets against spider walkers.
Ok I've decided that the gameplay isn't all that bad, I just hope they pump up the graphics to something like Quake 4 maybe hopefully. Anyways it seems more like a beta version then an actual demo, so I've got high hopes for the future of this game. :D
Yea I just recently read the article pertaining to this game that states all of the facts you've layed down. I find it interesting that they didn't use a more modern engine to run on, but that's just my opinion. I still in fact am wanting to purchase this game due to it's quality... You don't get too many quality games that run on oldschool engines, that's basically the just of my complaints, but this one is extremely unique.
Sigh.... not every game has to be all about the graphics. Yes, they are terrible by todays standards but who cares? Its a really unique game and it truly is a lot of fun. Plus it only costs $25. After playing for only 10 minutes or so I forgot about the subpar graphics and was totally focused on the gameplay. For anyone who likes multiplayer shooter games but wants something a little different this is perfect.
