I always thought the purpose of a demo, was to entice people to buy the game before it is released. Why the hell are they releasing a demo now? They should have had the damn thing out before the game was released.
I thought Max Payne was an overhyped disappointment. I totally agree with some of the others here, that Undying is without a doubt the action game of the year. Unless RTCW comes out before year end, and is a very special game (which I think it will be), Undying has no competition (even though Serious Sam was very cool). I don't even want to hear from anyone that Max Payne is a more fleshed out, original, amazing achievement than Undying was. I still can't believe how poorly Undying did in sales and how well Max Payne is doing. Guess people enjoy spending $50 for a 9 or 10 hour linear, poorly scripted, unoriginal gameplay experience.
For anyone that still hasn't played Max Payne, please, I'll sell you my copy for $40. You save $10 and I won't feel like I wasted my money. Send my email and we'll work out the details.
