My thoughts are currently: I wish I wasn't at work so I could play it.

Muhahaha

I have been playing it :D

It is actually rather good, seems to be the game we expected last year...

Shame it cost us nearly twice as much in teh end, but still, seems they finally did a lot of stuff we've been asking for.

played it for a couple of hours last night when it finally was released. Good fun, runs MUCH smoother than l4d ever has for me, anyone else finding that?

We did find that the top two difficulty settings have quiet a large gap though, we failed the hardest setting (extreme?) about 5 times before swapping to the next one down (advanced?) and finished it first attempt. :oops:

The defibrillator seems to last for ages, i found one about 2 minutes after someone died, ran back to his body and revived him.. (and then he stole my medkit i dropped to get the defib :evil: )

and that bloody charger! :o :(

Actually yeah, the engine runs a bit smoother and with more detail.

Overall, fairly impressed....but it makes me want to play infected! :D

I quite enjoyed it. Frustratingly short and annoyed that I have to turn multi-core off.

I really hope that gets sorted with new drivers or the release version.

I also have to turn off Multicore rendering on the laptop, seems to make things slower? Very odd.

Still get 60+ fps tho on max.

The multi-core thing doesn't seem to be an issue for me. I get a sound loop at the start of the game, usually freezes up for about 30 seconds then it's fine from then on - I get the exact same thing in L4D.

Other than that I'm enjoying it. Expert mode seems to be a challenge now. I don't like the Spitter (so rude!) and the goo is hardcore. Loving the flying zombie limbs when you pipe bomb them.

Can't wait for the full game.

Not noticed any issues with multi core here either.

So far played the demo a couple of times, im liking how you can shoot a hole right through a zombie and then peer through the hole, now if only there was a /wave emote. Nothing more fun than shooting a hole in a zombie and then waving at your teammates through the hole :D
