    I played the demo, and for a company that I have never heard of, they made a pretty good game. The graphics will remind you of Crysis, but they are not THAT crisp.

    With the system listed in my specs, I was able to set everything to max, 1920 by 1200 resolution, and force 8xAA and 16xAF through Catalyst Control Center, and everything was smooth. I did not actually see my frames per second, but it seemed as if game-play was smooth.

    The bullet-time is pretty fun, I grabbed a screenshot of one that I did in-game, no Photoshop or whatever. It was at 1920x1200, but the file size was a bit over 2MB, the limit for TPU's free image hosting, so I had to trim it down.

    Since this is a demo, there were some obvious bugs. During the first of the two missions playable in this demo, my entire body would sink into the ground when I was in the prone position.

    The bulletcounter on the bottom needs a little adjustment.

    Was the demo download for you guys as painfully slow as mine is atm? :wtf:
  8. kyle2020 Guest

    Took me 20 minutes to download, 5 minutes to install and then 10 minutes to uninstall it.

    Awful attempt at a game if you ask me. The sniping is excellent but everything else is too clunky and fake.

    No, I downloaded at my usual download speed, around 800 kb/s.

    Edit: LOL, it took me less than a minute to uninstall.

    awful game!!!! shooting it self feels good but everything else is total garbage!!! first demo mission was sneak thru enemy base.....real snipers dont to that.....stupid game tries do be splinter cell and not what sniping is about. awful just awful :shadedshu

    ALSO i just remembered that if you were to long hiding in one place,even if you were proned in a very dence grass the enemys would spot you after couple of minutes.its like the game had a invisible timer running backround...i mean come on that is just retarded

    and yes im a VERY criticising person

    I couldn't tell lol.

    It is just a demo, if your calling the whole entire game garbage just because of ONE level you played on a half assed made demo then you sir are quick to judge. The full game will most likly have the sniping levels any sniper would dream of, not that I"m sure of this just pointing out that this is a demo and you do play just a few maps.

    Its good to hear the shooting is good, can't wait to try this out.

    Ok i played the demo but after about 15x of getting seen and having to restart, i rage quit. The game all around looks good and i love the aspects of it but it irritates me that if you get seen just ONCE the mission is over. They should make it to have a cool down period were you can hide again or something cause alot of people will be rage quitting when they get 3/4 done with a mission and you get seen.

    Had in preorder for weeks now and they said the 24th was release but they failed to say that was for europe only and america and other country's have to wait till the 29th. Pretty pissed at steam at the moment of failing to tell people this( wish D2D had it for sale as less bs in the end).

    Don't expect uber graphics and super game play although the price is $30 and not $50.

    Never understood why companys put out crappy demos when they are trying to sell a product I have put off buying games because of this.

    sounds interesting, i will give it a crack later today. i would love to see somthign with a bit more "sniping" to it. yeah im picky and a longrange targer shooter (1000 yards), so to me for this to be great it would more eliments then bullet drop and flight times and a basic wind effect. but that will never happen short of being an actual shooting sim.

    looks like im stuck to going out in the paddock and shooting at dinner plates half mile out :p


    that being said im not going to pass finial judgment untill there is a full release

    Yea this is my only gripe like i mentioned ealier, instead of the whole mission a failure when your spotted, it needs a cool down or run away period were you can hide again.

    You lack patience my son. I for one like the challenge. I wish more games had this kind of model.
