Last night while playing I thought I would try something different, so near the start of the beach level where you come across the first patrol boat I went swimming.

Where the boat had stopped there was a section of sand just about high enough to stand on and shoot the guards. I thought I would try the demo from my new gun boat toy!

I was really surprised to find that you could travel around the island by sea, and getting inland is easy with all the rivers. Its great floating up the river shooting everyone in reach with the onboard gun.

What other ways has everyone found to do this fantastic demo?

Oh and the ability to take off any auto-aim.

I was trying to shoot a barrel and ended up shooting a guard about 2 feet away even though I was using the silencers.

Went back to it again, this time I just ran up and knifed the aearly guards to pieces because it's just that easy with the demo's AI. Then I got the boat and blew a load of people away (daft how if you go to far you get a warning and you're basically dead as soon as you hear the warning as the helicopter comes and kills you no matter how wuickly you get back into the safe zone).

Found a new valley and the waterfall with another boat, found another way into the base you steal an ATV From and wiped out the base this time (couldn't work the digger although I'm sure in the main game that's something you can use to break a fence/building.

Rather than race down the last bit I walked it leisurely killin guards on the way (shot the gunner out of the heli straight away - had the impotent heli following me for a bit though it was unable to do anything.

Found a way to get back into the valley I found earlier from higher up (kind of pointless but I liked the way that I could get back there rather than have an invisible wall block my way.

A few issues, some places you can fall 5 feet and be fine and in others you fall 5 feet and it's instant death. :S

Also fallen trees that are half a foot wide and are yet unscaleable/unjumpable aren't welcome either.

It was odd walking along the last bit watching the scripted events go off one after another (Helicopters taking down trees instead of just blowing me up as I was walking instead of driving) but there you go.

Good fun - I just hope the AI and later levels are better, and a bit more freedom wouldn't go amiss either (hopefully that's for later levels).

I quite enjoyed playing the demo too. It's one I'm going to keep an eye on I think.

Reminds me of Turok Evolution.

Heh, hopefully it's better.

:p

Yup, the ragdolls are generally excellent.

There's a few bugs in the demo, but I'm sure everything will be fixed for the final release at the end of the month.

I'm thinking of getting this.

Hopefully it has a nice ragdoll physics engine so the deaths are even more funnier.

No and yes.

There's a lot of vines on the island you can climb up and pick enemies off from. The best one to climb takes you up high and you can roll a log down a hill to take out the guards below, it looks hilarious.
