Actually I'm running it on XP Pro and nothing as bad as that has happened. The only problem I've had is I can't play the game twice in the same game session - if I restart the mission it will crash back to the desktop so I have to start the game again. Weird, but I can deal with that (as long as it doesn't happen in the full game).

Other than that it's a very cool game.

First off, you cant click through each of the logo splash screens unless you hit esc to jump to the main menu. I thought I'd sit through it once just to see if there was an intro or something. Each logo screen is shown just long enough for you to get pissed off that it isnt proceeding. Then after a few I got an error where it couldnt find a tga file. Crash to desktop
Ok, Fine.
So then the next time I run it I hit esc to get to the main menu, happy day, but no mouse cursor, you have to use the keyboard scroll keys.
Ok, Fine.
I set it up the options and control and jump in. I take a wrong turn down a canyon. Boom Mission Failed.
Ok, Fine.
Restart, and just start shooting at everything. Very cool. Then HARD CRASH -- Reboots my PC.
That may be fine on Windows 98, but a bug severe enough to reboot Windows 2000 Pro is bad.
Uninstall AquaNox Demo..
Its beautiful- sure, but not worth the download if your on a 56k.

...with good controls (didn't try to reinvent the wheel-thank you ^_^) and looks great on my GeForce 3.

Not sure if my hearing has returned yet :o,

Well that's it really, wow

Only played a couple of times and not completed the demo mission yet, and though it doesn't appear to have much depth (yet anyway - I mean I can't really level that criticism at it at this stage can I?) it certainly drew me in and is a lot of fun, and it looks fantastic it has to be said.
