Anyone played this game? I was thinking of maybe buying it but would like to hear other peoples opinions on it first.

I absolutely LOVED the demo, downloaded it earlier this week from Fileplanet. I have to say that the water and fire effects , and the graphics overall in the game are fantastic (though admittedly I do have a very powerful gaming rig), the storyline seemed very good, and the music (which was 1920-1940s style) and sound were brilliantly atmospheric.
Just popped out to Game a few moments ago and bought the full release of the game. Looking forward to giving it a play tonight

I too was very impressed with the demo. I ordered it on Steam almost as soon as I finished it.
The copy protection that it comes with is somewhat harsh though :|

Its not too bad really..they give you 5 activations of the serial key. But thats simultaneous activations, so activate it once, then activate it again on another machine (thats 2 activations), then if you uninstall it off one, you get that activation back , which takes you back to 4 activations remaining.
Cant really see what the hoo-hah is all about unless someone wants to install it on 6 machines simultaneously..and they shouldnt be doing that anyway of course

I have posted about the DRM/SecureRom/Activation shenanigans elsewhere. I also pointed out the cruddiness of the DX10 implmentation.
Oh, there's no widescreen support either.

I know I'm dragging this one up, but got it last day of the Summer Hols and played it to the end over a week of evenings. Loved every minute. Superb in every way, and not one crash. I got the SE Tin version for ¬£22.99 on the PC from Morrisons.
If you liked the old System Shock and System Shock 2 then this is a real treat for you.
Only downside is that when you realise that you can't really die you lose the fear factor.
Big Daddies rock.
