Wow, getting a good download rate (max for my connection here). Must not be a demo that people were looking forward to, or no one knows its out yet...

I used to get all my stuff from FileShack, but now that have that lame 100 KB/sec limitation :(. I used to a get a consistent 200+ from them all the time. Now I'm off to find another good/free provider!

Does this kinda play out like Swat 3? I loved that game and I can't decide between either Raven Shield or Splinter cell as to what game to get next for single player.

I'm glad you understand my point of view!

Anyway...

Got it and played through it. Seems pretty cool, but haven't really gotten to play around with all the new features. Graphics are good, even runs well on my old Athlon 700/GF2 Ti system. Going to play around with it more once I get a chance.

I glanced at my PC Gamer this morning and Raven Shield got a score of 80/100 with it's faults being an "uninspired single-player" and some bugs. Splinter Cell, on the other hand, received a 91/100 for a single-player only game.

Personally, unless future reviews convince me otherwise, I'm gonna skip Raven Shield.

This demo rocks ass.. played it twice.. can't wait for the final version. Only thing I didn't like is that you're stuck with heavy armor only... I play light, mostly.

Better than Delta Force, for damn sure!

Notice how the game actually runs, with realistic animations? And how the bad guys actually shoot at the good guys, and vice versa? And how the game runs fine both indoors and outdoors?

Oh, and the fact that this is all fictional and not an obscene travesty of a game... that helps too.

Screw PC Gamer! I never base my decisions on one magazine or one review. I'm loving the demo so it is going to be a must have!

I like the demo excet I cant disable the auto aim. The auto aim seems gay after playing GhostRecon and Splinter Cell.

Personally I'd skip getting Splinter Cell, or at least wait until it hits the bargain bins.

It's a great game while it lasts, but once you've passed it, there's almost zero replay.

I adore this demo! It's packin' the most perfect damage model I've ever seen! The graphics are gorgeous and I get a steady 50FPS on my killeRig.
The AI is superb, and it has the most fluid animations I've ever seen!!!!
It's better than SWAT3, and beats the hell outta the other R6 games because you can load preprogrammed mission plans rather than making your own for 2 hours.
And with its custom mission generator, it has more replay value than Splinter Cell, which I also loved.

You'd base a game purchasing decision off of what PC Gamer says? Those folks gave Neverwinter Shits a 96%. Not to mention totally snubbing Mafia for their game of the year awards.

In reply to RyanC, #16... I totally agree. The AI is so much better than the past R6 games, it's unbelievable. I sent a squad through the building to see how they'd do... they came out the other side, with only one man wounded, and they'd killed all but 5 of 35 terrorists (on medium difficulty). The Rainbow AI is alot better, and they actually serve a purpose now (imo). Likewise, the enemy AI is good too. no more do you get shot in the head from a lame ass uzi from across the map, by a drunken russian terrorist

1. Looking for a fast download? Subscribing to FilePlanet works.

2. The game is fun, although it seems a bit more "arcadey" than the previous games. It is a nice mix of new and old, this games does not feel as cramped, and I will surely purchase it (translation: I won't cancel my three-month-old pre-orderd :D)

3. Mmm...I love the new engine. It looks really good, reall helps speed up the pace of things, and it runs incredibly fast. 1024x768x32, high detail across the board, 16x AF, and 6x AA nets me a constant 75+ FPS. w00t!

4. As ever, I love and hate how many freaking commands there are for this game.

Seeing some room for improvement, but liking the newer approach,
Ray

yah totally agree with #17

If you base your decisions off of what PC Lamer sais then you are pretty screwed, honestly.

You cant decide a purchase from just having read on review, especially one by the folks over at that place who dropped Mafia over some shit and have continued to release low rated reviews filled with excessive "humor" over the past years
