    This looks cool in concept but I would definitely DL the demo before I bought this one.

    No, and I won't be. It looks as if the user reviews of the demo are mediocre at best.

    Just got done playing it. I love the concept, and the gameplay is average. I might get it, but only after I get bored of Call of Pripyat and L4D2.

    Uh, if I had to rate it: 8/10

    Yea looks like it would be good for a laugh but then boring after a few times.

    So much for having a good and accurate civil war game.

    Looks mildly entertaining, though.

    There used to be an old arcade game that was like this. Maybe someone could help me remember.

    It was a top down scroller and you traveled through time on foot. Kinda like a 1943 but as a futuristic soldier. You know like Ikari Warriors? One of the levels you shot wave after wave of trojan soldiers. I cannot remember the name of this game. I keep thinking "Time Soldiers" but I'm not sure and my filter at the job blocks that kinda search.

    I just played the demo...good concept...gameplay is "meh". The weapons don't feel all that good, and even at high FPS (50 +) it feels like you have a 25ish FPS...at least to me.

    Worth a download...or a buy when it's on sale.

    I think the FPS oddity feeling is the mouse smoothing. I wish I could turn it off, I hate it.

    Just tried the demo, nice concept and interesting story, graphics looks good.

    But...

    Is a (B) class game.
