Medal of Honor SP Demo

As you may be aware, the eagerly-anticipated single-player demo of Medal of Honor: Allied Assault surfaced online as a massive 175 MB ZIP download a day or so ago, apparently uploaded from a foreign magazine's cover CD-ROM. While it was originally not intended to be released online so soon, we feel that it has now spread so widely that we can no longer ignore it in the interest of newsworthiness, but keep in mind that publisher Electronic Arts may decide to officially release it as a self-extracting installer as yet, and that you should also be able to obtain it from the February issue of Computer Gaming World shortly if you happen to be bandwidth-impaired. That said, we have a local copy with mirrors of the demo, repackaged to exclude the distribution of DirectX 8 which most gamers will have installed already anyway. The resulting 150.4 MB download allows you to try out the Nebelwerfer Hunt level in 2015's imminent WWII first-person shooter. Update: The demo has been pulled at the request of publisher Electronic Arts. An official demo is expected to be released on January 8. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

its alot of fun, just be warned that it is 150 megs or more for 1 level that will take you about 20-30 mins to complete...

Loved it though!

hmmm, i have downloaded the sp demo from here and it won't install. Even though i tell it not to install directx8 it asks for a file that's not in the zip - it asks me to point it to the location of the file (still thinking that it's on the cd).. anyone else have this problem??

2015 just publicly announced that the single player demo was not fit for release and all links should be pulled from websites. All medal of honor fansites are removing links to the demo.

But bluesnews is shoving it up EA and 2015's ass! Well done bluesnews!

Hehe, that doesnt sounds good :/

@11: Try to point the installer to some other directx, like one from a shareware-cd, or try to point it to your directx on your harddisk.. maybe it accepts those files and continue then...
