I thought this was an ok demo, on expert it was quite immersive and required some concentration, as opposed to some other games of a similar genre, i agree it is a reminder of Cod2 although i could not help feeling it was less gritty and perhaps a little consoley in that sense. Did anyone find that if you got the 3rd marksman awards with a rifle, the dudes flew miles when you shot them? that was kind of fun, and almost echoes HL2. On the down side, the AI are still stupid, and a bad shot, but way more aggressive in close quarters. i also found that whilst the parachuting etc was quite cool, and 'greased' landings were rewarding, the disappearance of dead enemies was highly annoying. Maybe i am the only one who thinks this, but there should be more blood and gore in wwII shooters, you know: pink mist, body parts, screaming - in this demo, there is the odd spurt with a well aimed headshot - i dunno, you see it in other games and then i find myself wondering why wwII Fps' are left out. A frag grenade should frag a nazi, not just aliens etc and leave a nice mess.
Anyway, on the whole it left me wanting more, sorry that wasnt particualrly technical but i had no issues with frame rate or anything, jsut crashed once at a checkpoint.

Anyhoo - i'll give it a bash i reckon, will be annoyingly easy i think....hmph.
