well, fileshack has the demo if people are looking.
The play is kind of like a very arcady freelancer mixed with KOTOR's on the gorund interaction but simplified and dumbed down. Character interaction when landed just cycles through a script without any branches (at least in the demo). You apparantly don't have any stat management other than customizing your ships. anti-aliasing doesn't seem to work, at least 4x driver forced doesn't work for me. Framerates suck for what is on screen unless they aren't doing LOD for them. Also, on the ground the models look nice, but for some reason when flying your ship looks like ass. very pixelated and just BAD looking. Which isn't good since you likely spend the majority of the game with it taking up 25% of the screen. The voice acting is a mixed bag, some good, some pretty bad, and some where the acting is fine but inappropriate (i.e. director told them to do X, they did it fine, but it's jsut not rightwhere it got put). Also, the cut scenes are a mixed bag, some of them would have been a LOT better looking done in engine (in fact they look like screen caps of someone running the game at 640x480 with bad settings), some of them are actual renders of higher res models, and justify a pre-rendered cut-scene. Oh yeah, and the mouse lag doesn't seem to be resolution related, there just seems to be something wrong with the mouse sensitivity settings when you put them past a certain point.
I had heard about this a while ago, and was looking forward to it, but the demo is pretty disappointing. The art direction is good, but the nature of the models makes AA not working just suck, and cranking it up to high res gives me frame rates dipping into the 30s with a gig of ram, a BFG GF6800gt, and dual 2.4Ghz xeons. Both of which makes it hard for you to enjoy the eye candy. The story has the possibility of being good, but the demo is just too short to tell. Even if it is, unless the demo is misleading, you are just bassically trudging your way through it with little impact other than how long you take to do the next task.
