Elite Force 2 Demo Impressions
Alright, here is my best impression of the Elite Force 2 demo. *Ahem*
"Look at me, I'm Elite Force 2! If you jammed any more over-used game devices into me I'd kill your desire to ever play games again!"
Let's see here, the opening of the first mission has you starting in a room full of crates as small insect-like aliens attack you. When you kill them, they explode (hold on to your hats!) in a spray of green goo. Once you kill the initial rush of critters you have to jump over some gaps that (oh man, I'm gonna nut!) have fire shooting across them every five seconds. So you have to jump across the gaps in those brief moments when there isn't any fire shooting out. Man, it's innovation city around here!Ok, sarcasm off now. The Elite Force 2 demo is fast paced, good looking, clean running (Quake III engine), tight controlling and somewhat fun even though it contains no originality what-so-ever. It's worth a download and a quick play though to see for yourself but those of you on dial-ups may want to wait for it to hit a magazine cover CD. I don't think I'll be buying the full game unless the multiplayer has something a bit more original than the singleplayer demo.
