A demo for Call of Duty: United Offensive is now available, offering a chance to check out the World War II shooter add-on.

I don't have a top-of-the-line performance beast by any means, but this thing ran straight-up ASS at decent settings. And this ia at 1024X768, no AA. I can run Doom3 at High Quality, same resolution, runs pretty much butter 99% of the time.

What
the
hell?

The original (which I kinda liked, more than MoH anyways) ran better than this, and I was still running a GF4 TI4400. Granted, my video card is basically waiting for a better system to be put into, but still, I can't believe the 10 fps and worse I get towards the end. Once the Germans broach the line, it got downright slideshow. Very odd.

Had it run smoothly, it'd be an ok demo, though pretty much anything looks bad after coming off of Doom 3, and knowing HL2 is close. At least this time you get a real mounted gun on a jeep, and you're not shooting with an inaccurate MG40 at high speed.

Shan't be buying, mostly since I'd have to go and re-install CoD. If it wants to do a check for the original disc to install, fine, but I'm not gonna have the extra gig sitting on my hard drive, knowing the expansion is probably stand-alone guts-wise anyway.
