Will Rock Demo

A demo version of Will Rock is now available, offering a sampling of Saber Interactive's upcoming action first-person shooter. The demo requires DirectX 9, and will not work on 3dfx accelerators, or any other video cards that do not support hardware T&L. The file is a 111 MB download, and is available from 3D Gamers, Computer Games Online, Gamer's Hell, and Worthplaying.

Anyone getting a slow download should check out the "tukati" downloading client on 3DGamers. I'm getting almost 300k a sec

Over the last week or more the 3D Gamers pages have been really slow to load for me. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm not complaining about the site at all, just wondering if the problem is on my end.

Of course I could be wrong... but really, what are the chances of that happening twice?

Anyone else disappointed that the headline wasn't Demo Will Rock?

Or relieved?

I'm talking about the site itself, not downloading files from the site. The pages themselves are taking over a minute to load on my dsl. It used to be as fast as any other site for me, maybe it has something to do with the updated design (which does look nicer, btw).

That wouldn't have made any sense, since the demo is already released..

Thanks - that layout was launched in January though, so if you didn't have problems until recently, that can't be the reason. We're also not seeing any server load or bandwidth problems on our end. Did you try a traceroute to our server? Maybe you've got some bad routing from your end.

Exactly what is this thing anyways? I've run it before, and it seems to work well, but is it really doing P2P transfers? Am I invisibly sending chunks of the file out myself? With Will Rock, I was getting insane speeds for the first 70%, we're talking 2.5 megs per second, which is about 2 and a half times the norm for me (cable modem). It just kinda dropped out, now it's chugging along at a still acceptable 300k/s. So if nothing else, it sure works well. Does this FileFront thing have any spyware on it or anything?

I had the Tukati thing running at 300k then it dipped to now 30k and dropping. I've been at "5 minutes left" for close to 20 minutes now

Ironically, it doesn't.

The game handles very badly, something about the player movements which is just off. Perhaps the jerky movements I could let my character make are referred to, but it's certainly not what one would expect when they tell you the game 'rocks'. Otherwise the game is a decent SS ripoff. I especially like the tigers and the birds (right until they start dropping their fireball turds).
Some cool special effects on that temple thing.

I just wanna thank Croteam for yet another exciting entry in the Sam saga. Oh wait...

Yeah, well, I guess SS started a new "manic FPS" genre or something, and so far there seems to be plenty of room. Very polished and slick, and I can SEE MY OWN FEET! That's immersion, baby!

Bit buggy, though. You can reload at any time, even when your clip's full. I ran out of arrows in zoom mode, and instead of going to normal view, it stayed zoomed and suddenly I found myself using the acid gun, unable to unzoom. Switching weapons fixed it. Also, I saved right as the Cyclops started emerging, before he got out of his cage, and when I loaded, no Cyclops. Hence, impossible to win!

Fun game overall, and I LOVE the pistol. Better 'n Sam's Colts, if I daresay. Just 'cause you can fire as fast as you can click.

If you loved 'Serious Sam' you'll love 'Will Rock'

If you hated 'Serious Sam' you'll hate 'Will Rock'

I enjoyed it enough, on a purely mindless run 'n' gun level; it's not 'Half-Life 2,' but it's not trying to be.

One other thing: the demo runs quite well. I only have a 700mhz processor (minimum calls for 800mhz), I was able to run the demo at 800x600 with most of the visual details set to 'high' and it ran smoothly.

"Now that's a lot of pussy!" will probably go down as the worst one-liner in FPS history.

Thanks I was wondering if it was like SS because SS was an insult to the people who tried playing it. I was about to download the demo too..... thank Jesus!
