Cold War Demo

A demo is now available for Cold War, allowing the chance to go behind the Iron Curtain for a sample of Mindware Studios' recently released third-person stealth/action game. The single-player demo offers two missions: "An Uninvited Guest" and "The Halls of Hell." The demo is a co-premiere on 3D Gamers and FilePlanet (registration required), and the 385 MB download is also now mirrored on Filecloud, FileFront, Filerush (torrent), Gameguru Mania, Playfuls, VGPro, and Worthplaying.

These pauses have happened with older nvidia drivers (even with 71.xx, which are not that old, it got fixed with 77.xx I think). Try upgrading.

I hate to say it, given its "popularity" ;), but I think it might be Starfoce.

Whenever the demo starts, I get about one second of a "CD spinning" mouse icon and then another two to four seconds or extremely erratic mouse pausing/stuttering. Nothing seems to be happening on-screen during that time, but then it goes to black and all is well.
.
Just guessing,
Ray

I was looking forward to this game from the previews I've seen.

Unfortunately the game would pause for 3 seconds at a time every other second. I couldn't get past the start menu.

Too bad.

I actually got two crashes/reboots while playing. Haven't gotten one of those in the last 2 years.

When trying to access the control menu once it rebooted my machine, but didn't do it the next time, and got a second reboot when autosaving (F5). Weird. Wonder if it has something to do with the copy protection since I haven't run into this crash in numerous years.

Oh well, not worrying about it, I'm not that interested in it anyhow.

I decided to try this demo even though its Starforce was in it. It wasn't too bad. Don't expect it to be good as Splinter Cell and Hitman games. I wished the civilizans did more than just run away. Graphics weren't too bad, but at least it was smooth on my old ATI Radeon 9800 Pro AIW (128 MB).

As for Starforce, it can be removed (requires a reboot) during the uninstallation. How nice, but it is still unneeded in the first place.

funny how they think starforce helps, but it does nothing. farenheit had it and it was released on the warez scene damn near immediately with an easy to use workaround which lets you play the game flawlessly

so fuck starforce and fuck everyone who puts it in their game

Be forewarned you Starforce haters.
Yeah it looks like every piece of sh*t game released these days has that extra piece of sh*t attached to it. I hope enough customers avoid these games that Starforce will become the "kiss of death" when it comes to sales.

I have no idea WTF I am doing, but it is pretty neat.

It is all XII, Splinter Cell, crafting, and sneaking all jumbled up together. Looks pretty good, too, and the x-ray view view is neato freato.

I have to see if there is more environment interaction and a way to get a stealth kill/takeout, but it is pretty good.
Edit: (Other than the gas and rubber bullets - like how Fisher can grab any character you sneak up to)

Nothing amazing, but definitely worth the demo download.
If anything, it tries too much.
Back to play again :),
Ray

Installing now; looks decent from the shots.

Be forewarned you Starforce haters...
I do think Starforce in demos is dumb, though.
Not particularly familiar with the game,
Ray
