Yeah ... come on there must be a patch or a fix or something, why the hell can't you invert the mouse for controling the camera.

I can understand this sneaking through in the demo but it doesn't work in the full version either!!

nono...I don't want to play with my controller...since there is a lot of shooting in the game I want my keyboard and mouse...and with the mouse, no matter what setting you choose, it won't invert...

(it does work with the controller but I feel so much more in control with a mouse than with an analogue stick :))

By default with teh controller it goes to invert mode, if you want non-inverted mode you have to choose inverted, so imagine if you want inverted, choose non-inverted.

Impressive demo. I loved the graphic, FPS (even with antialias, everything enabled, 1152x864, etc.). I like the Indiana Jones feel with the boulder and traps!

I won't be getting the full game due to lack of free time.

Its most definetly the size. I just installed the full game (please dont complain, i buy lots of games) and it requires about 7.2 gigs. Also that damned nivida blurb at the begining is really bad, and much worse then the last TWIMTBP. Even though i own a nvidia card, i still hate the fact that the devs push you to get one.

Because I can't sit and play it through in one sitting I must be retarded.

Heh, thats right! The RoL demo really needs a save too. After playing for a while the game started to get slow.. I wanted to save so I could restart the game and continue.

And the load time for the level for the size of it is bar none amazing. I do not think I have seen any other 3D game with such good load times.

Maybe the reason for the short load times is because the game loads the content dynamically according to your process much like PoP does. The loading screen you see in the beginning only shows the loading of the first screen's game content.

The readme cites demo installer size concerns ... I don't think they're trying to push the Xbox 360 version, the game is coming out for pretty much anything you can play a game on (PSP, PS2, Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, with Gamecube and Nintendo DS announced).

And anyhow, the PC retail edition will have the next-gen mode, too.

Once more: The high-end graphics option is not available in this demo. It will be made available as an add-on to the demo on a later date.

Still feels like punishment.

No Xbox360 on you?
Boo-hoo.
Your lack of a console is fey,
So the next generation hardware button is gray.

Until April 7,
whereupon you're in heaven,
and punting with your HDTV brethren.

/edit: your - you're, ouch!

Are they releasing a patch so we can make use of some of the more advanced PC hardware? It really doesn't look all that great compared to other recent titles (Prince of Persia comes to mind for some reason). Seems rather weird to have that "Next Generation" button under options, almost as if they're punishing us for not playing it on a console.

I finished the demo, and this title will definitely be going to the top of my gamefly queue.

Aside from a bit of a learning curve with the camera and jumping angles, the game was really well done, imho. I found myself literally saying "awwww damn" when the demo ended.

As others have said, it really felt like they got back to the TR roots, with intricate platforming, interesting environments, and a bit of fun, simple combat thrown in.

Good job =).

Ok, finished it.
Very nice.

And the load time for the level for the size of it is bar none amazing. I do not think I have seen any other 3D game with such good load times.

The camera I had one problem with at one point, but other then that pretty good. And it looks good too (and no I am not talking about her bouncing breasts), not top of the line, but really nice.

Actually, I think the good ol' MS Sidewinder pad is still the best PC gamepad ever made. Too bad MS stopped making PC hardware...

Grab one if you find it.
