I think the Renegade demo is a total blast. It's a ton of fun, has just the right ammount of resource menagement to feel fresh without bogging the game down, the vehicles ARE a blast and it has great team play feel too. There's more over-the-top action battlefield mayhem in a Renegade match than any FPS I've played. I love it

I can't believe how many people just want another been-there FPS with new graphics. Sure, I wish the graphics were better here too, but the fun factor completely outweighs those nitpicks IMO.

So after reading all these comments, I finally went ahead and tried the game out...

I like the concept, and the idea behind the gameplay, and yet, somewhere along the line, it's missing something. I don't know what (maybe I'd be making games for a living if I did), but it's definitely just a little "off".

I think though, that it has some serious potential. The question you have to ask yourself now is, do you think that it will ever live up to that potential? Obviously some here do and some don't. Heck, some love it as it is already.

As for me, I'm gonna follow it's development for a little while as it has managed to pique my curiousity. It could turn out to be a sleeper game that a lot of people blow off because of first impressions. And if that is the case, then Westwood has no one to blame but their own release strategy. And if it never manages to find that certain something that makes it a great game...well, at least the demo is free.

You can use "the all-seeing eye" as an alternative to gamespy. You can download it at http://www.udpsoft.com/eye/.

It has support for the Renegade demo and most popular FPS's and it is better than gamespy.

I have not been able to play the renegade demo after running the the upgrade patches. The game always crashes due to page faults. This demo has a lot of issues, hopefully they will be corrected in the final release. In my opinion, there is no excuse for such poor graphics in a "modern" FPS.

Anybody else having similar crashing problems after patching?

I don't eat ice cream because I no longer eat nor drink dairy products. But before then I did think that it was some tasty stuff.

You consider RtCW and MOHAA "classics"?

Dude, you're on crack, and I need to find out who sells you your stuff.

I'm all about the gameplay, and those games ain't got it.

Tribes 2 is fun, I'll grant you, but I can't stand having to get a goddamn pilot's license to learn how to walk. Too many damn keys.

Sorry, I think you're in the wrong here.

I don't get how some of you people feel this demo 'OWNS'? For one the graphics are very low poly for a new release. The demo feels clausterphobic for an outdoor level.
Tribes 2 has alot more freedom, better graphics and gameplay. This game is a good time killer and thats all.

What other new titles are out now? First time I played RTCW and MOHAA, I was like, WOW- this is fun.
This game feels like a step backwards. Nothing new here folks. Im not slamming this game unbiasedly, It's just that Im really, really disapointed with it. Over all this game is very blan. Its not Dikatanna or anything, but it will NEVER be a classic, thats for sure. Heres a list of games that were great for there time( and still are?)Classics. The Thief games, Unreal and UT, First Battlezone, Doom, Quakes,Tribes 1 and 2, System Shock 2, Dark Forces 2, Duke 3d, Half Life, RTCW, MOHAA, Baldurs Gate1 and 2, Warcrafts, Starcraft and Outcast. Now ive played alot of games in my time, and these are some of the titles that I really enjoyed and had a blast playing. Im sure there are more good ones I forgot and a hellofalot of stinkers I won't mention. This Demo, based on what ive played lag free is just lukewarm in the middle. Maybe you need to have been a CnC zealot to be excited over this title? Oh well, some like it and good for them.
