Liked it, GTA meets FarCry was an apt description. One thing though, is their anyway to change the keys, I hate using W-A-S-D keys for movement and driving. If you can't change the keys in the full version no sale for me, I like to customize the keys as do most other people playing PC games.

You can? I tried everything the enter, mouse button1, space bar all the standards for editing keys but nothing worked.

So is the answer you can on the full version but not on the demo?

I love this game! :thumbsup: I just can't get over how Gorgeous it looks either! :eek:

I couldn't find how to change the keys either! :( (I like to use the arrow keys for movement)

Playing the demo was a blast. I never bothered with the objectives though, not after the first one, 'cus i just wanted to explore and shoot everything in sight! :D

It was alot of fun mowing down vehicles with the Jeep's turret, and watching them fall apart, tyre's bursting and all. Great attention to details in this game, oh yes! :)

As for the graphics, well, i reckon this is the prettiest game i've ever played! :thumbsup:

OMG, i nearly forgot! Man, all that vegetation! Woah!

PS. Loved the sound effects too, especially when you walked through the trees. :thumbsup:

PPS. Oh, and that water! SPECTACULAR!

*nods* It's looking very promising. I also instantly fell in love with the real-world 24h effects, ie clouds moving, weather changing and sun setting and rising, thats something that just adds another dimension to the game... Damn, going up in a heli at night and freefalling when looking down over the islands... yumm :-)

This demo is crap. Worst AI and physics I've seen since Boiling Point. It's just laughably bad. Cars driving around randomly, up hillsides. NPCs just walking around oblivious to the firefights going on.

The driving probably is the owrst part of the game, it feels like your car is on ice and it would be better if the camera was fixed on the vehicle.At one point you get a speedboat, but the controls and physics are so poor you just end up driving it onto land, where it's impossible to get it back into the water. When this happens, the mission is effectively over, but it's never quite clear what you're supposed to be doing. The game just leaves you to wander around in confusement and then display "mission failed" after a while.

The enemy boats also just run aground as soon as they see you on the beach. It's so ridiculously stupid I just sat there with my face in my hands, shaking my head.

I have to say the environments look nice, but everything else is average at best, with some particularly bad looking characters & animation.

You still have time to fix the AI, the driving, animation , glitches. Use Hitmans AI and animation if you have to, but really the game will fall to 60-70% if those things don't get fixed.
