Yeah, I think it was one of the best single player FPS games I have ever played. The first-person hand-to-hand combat is the best ever. I hate stealth games but in CoR stealth was done right. The pacing in the game was great. Player movement and weapons were tight.
I normaly buy games for the multiplayer but I picked up CoR because of the buzz the game was getting. It is the only single-player FPS that I was really compelled to play all the way through. I have so many AAA FPS titles that I have never finished. CoR on the other hand did so many things right I really do believe it was/is one of the best gaming experiences I have ever had.
As far as I am concerned I do not need a demo for this game, I will be buying it on launch day.
Will you guys shut the fuck up about a demo? They already said they're releasing one for the PC by the end of the monthThat's fair enough, as the last story I read said there was no word on a PC demo. I do believe it would be better to coordinate a demo for release on all platforms at the same time but it's not a big issue.
Speaking of Steam, in the age of digital distribution I think demos should always be modular components of the full game. In other words, you wouldn't download all of the full game's assets, you would just get the ones the demo needed. But you would have part of the full game, so if you chose to buy the game, you would only need to download the extra assets and maybe a new executable. The demo could even incorporate integrated unlocking functionality. Why don't more games do this?Well, that happens with smaller games on Steam - things like PopCap games and I think The Maw did it too, though that's more downloading the full game in a limited mode and unlocking it (much like the original Alone In The Dark did). But yeah, I'd definitely like to see that become more common.
PC Demos = Bit Torrent
Get with the times.
I don't know why everyone gets their balls in a knot over no demo releases though since it seems like there are fewer and fewer. It sucks but I trust gamerankings or any aggregated site to give me all the information I need. If it scores high on every site, I know something about the product just like if it scores low.It's not the most important thing but it stacks up with other decisions, like Atari not releasing games on Steam in the UK. It's also sad that a demo has been made for other platforms but not PC. If they're not willing to keep with the times then what's their post-release support going to be like?
