Kuje Yeah... it's pretty ridiculous how long it takes to set up. Then the demo is super short too, and it seems like they didn't even use the top resolution textures.

Not a God of War fan, so I haven't tried the demo yet, but I'll probably grab the first used copy I see come into my work. It looks awesome, but like everything else I try to play, I'll probably drop it in a day or two for more Morrowind or DayZ.

Went to my friends house to play it, and after just over an hour of trying to get the download to work (servers/store was crashing), it was brilliant Can't wait!

It was awesome to me!

bluexy Did you explore for supplies and ammo? If you alert a clicker then you need enough ammo and/or a shiv to take it out. I shot it a few times and then stuck a shiv in it, mainly because it grabbed me and was about to bite my neck. For the hardest type of 'Infected' opponents, they're not all that hard when there's one of them, but when there's loads of them, or hell even 2+ then you're going to have to play it very, very smart. The runners are pretty easy to take out, even with several of them, at least in the demo they were. In the full game, if you just take hits, run off, kill them all with melee or with a gun then it may be quite bad to do so. As in there may not be enough supplies to keep doing it, especially with other things to think about (like clickers) so you're gonna have to find a way (stealth) to make sure they don't all run at you. I wonder what the second type of infected are?

Yeah the 4th stage which was teased at in the file thingy in the demo seems interesting....

They might be bigger, stronger and even faster type of Infected. Although I don't see how it gets much stronger than a one-bite kill. Perhaps they take a whole lot more damage and move faster, maybe they have advanced sight, I doubt they'd have sight back but maybe something that lets them locate you and your movements even better than clickers. They could be like a mini-boss type Infected.

Was this demo going to be release to everyone or just those with GoW? I never pick up Ascension, first in the series that I've missed.

intoxication I'm not sure, it was always said to be 'coming first to those who have GOW:A' so I assume it'll come out at a later date to everyone else, perhaps on the 14th, when the full game comes out.

I've known all along I'd be buying the Joel/Ellie edition (gone for the Joel as it was £11 cheaper and there was nothing to choose between the two editions otherwise) on release date and the demo has, somehow, made me want it even more (didn't think it was possible). I've played it through several times. The full game should be awesome. 10/10 from Edge and 10/10 from Eurogamer plus several other full mark scores. Bring on the 14th!
