Played it. Creepy fun, but not really my bag of tea. I'm not a big fan of first person ration shooters. Sure it ups the intensity level, but I just don't like not having enough to shoot with.

I guess there are too many FPS's coming out soon. I'm saving my monies for Halo 3 and COD4.

IIRC, system shock felt similar, so maybe they were trying to keep that aspect of the older games.

That's what I figured. I couldn't play SC and a bunch of other games for the same reason.

i remember playing system shock in 1996 or whenever it was and not able to sleep or as the lights dimmed in the evening able to play alone. system shock 2 was much the same... this one? is it an fps or an rpg/fps like the old ones. if so, prepare to be bloody pissing yourself

The demo is waiting for me at home right now. Can't wait to get home and try it. I've been reading nothing but glowing reviews about it.

To answer the above question, this is supposed to be a FPS/RPG, like System Shock. They should be pretty similar in gameplay, but with a very different environment/plot. Also the interaction with the AI will be different in the case of things like the Big Daddy/Little Sister. That said all I've heard about the demo was good, but some people said it felt too linear, too easy, like any other FPS. However the dev team has said that the demo was meant to be more linear to give you a feel for all of the weapons and plasmids, just basic gameplay. The first level will not be the same as it is in the demo.

Since my kick ass pc simply stopped playing games I'll have to be downloading this one. Thanks for the heads up!

No Live so I can't download it, but I've got it on pre-order already. I just picked my 360 up a couple weeks ago off craigslist. Got a great deal on it, system with wireless controller, 20GB hard drive, Gears of War, Rainbow Six Vegas, a Fifa game that I already traded, and cables for $275. I picked it up basically for Bioshock and possibly Oblivion although I've already beat GoW on the casual setting and I'm most of the way through Vegas. I don't know if I want to get Live for online play, I got real sick of Counterstrike and such with all the whiny little pre-teen brats running around. I also don't have a solid group of friends with 360's to link up with. If a game comes out that truly has revolutionary multiplayer I'll consider it, but for now I enjoy the single player experience.

Bioshock comes out on my birthday, so I'm taking a paid day off to enjoy this game.

Anyone play System Shock with the 3rd party co-op multiplayer mod? My friends and I had some fun late nights on that one back in the day.

Awesome, so the final game won't be very linear then I take it? FEKKING AWESOME, seems like there's NOTHING that the devs missed, everything is just so perfect.

I just played that demo last night and preordered it today. I liked it a lot and hope the fun hold though till the end of the game and doesn't bury itself under a mountain of redundant room clearing. We'll see.

I've been told that the demo is basically the tutorial for the final game. After that it should become much more open ended. I can't wait to get my hands on more plasmids and weapons.
