It's one of the most engrossing demos I've played in a long time. I'll be picking it up for sure.

Anyone who says the demo is 'shitty', is a fat gothtard.. oh wait!

So yeah I've been playing the demo and it's very short, the first 2 missions are from the Hiarachey(sp?) factions and with very restricted unit useable (but you can mod it to open up the other units) You can't use the tech tree either. You also get a tutorial thats been put togeather just for the demo which is pretty simple for explaining RTS to noobs...


That said, the Demo is fun! Even though it's just the first 2 missions and they arent that hard to do the game has awesome story telling and you can really see the potential for some awesome gameplay multiplayer wise expecially. If you go into the tutorial you can click on the Tech Tree button and although they arent useable you can hover over them and ready what they do and it sounds awesome.

I was also really impressed at how well it runs on my computer at max graphics... with only a little slow down at times yet still looked REALLY nice.

Another thing that looks really nice is the CGI cutscenes, they are Blizzards level for sure... VERY NICE the opening cutscene is awesome SIFI mix of old War of the Worlds vs new Gundam/I-robot type stuff... its cool.

I'm getting it for sure! Heres some pics I took:

My plazma gun turret shots the skin right off human soldiers!


One brave 'lost one' takes on a tank


My Aliens, watching... waiting... They can taste your fear!


Human jeep flees!


A giant walker standing at the bottom of a Pyramid


Ahh the mother ship!!


Another one of the transport ship flying next to some Pyramids


Enemy bots about to find out what a beem cannon tastes like.


Humans see the might of my army and run.


An enemy tank, love the robot driver, great detail!


Orlok about to fire his cannon


Enemy robots with blade arms trying to cut me like some kind of emo.


I hit them right in the bot maker!

Glad to hear it. Full version should be out in a couple weeks so we should get to see some reviews around then.

i hope it plays better than it looks ... those screen do not make it look nice at all, infact its looks ropey compared to other RTS games that have come out recently

is there any reason the sky is one colour in all these shoots .. makes them all look odd and not finished

just picked up World in Conflict for 10 from my local store .. think i'll stick to that and see what the reviews say about this one.

Judging from the screens it looks like an old PC game.

Im sorry but for an RTS this game looks stunning...
The reason it looks like that is because I have zoomed in close to take the pictures, These pictures are closer then the actual ingame zoom goes infact.

Zoom in that close on any other RTS and you wouldn't get a game half as good looking as that... World in Conflict is an exception to the rule but plays completely differently...

Why does the Sky always look like that? Probably because they are all taken from the same mission...

The game looks great and when did graphics become more important then strategy in an RTS game anyway?

Heres an oldish ingame trailer...

not from those screens it doesn't look stunning .. what's it look like when its not zoomed in?

not sure where i ever said the graphics are more important??? simply said from those screen it looked crap compared to other RTS games i'v seen going. which is why i said i hope it PLAYS better than it looks based on those screens

/edit/
looks much nice in the vid clip .. delete your crappy screen grabs and link a load of those instead, sells it much better ...
