It shows alot of the changes that have been made and gives you a general idea how the game will play. But the unit balance is horrible and there are some nasty movement and targeting bugs with some of them. Who knows how old the demo build is, but hopefully they have made some serious changes since that version.

PS there is a command you can run in the demo that unlocks all of the tech and units which will be available in the full game via the debug console. It's rather amusing that they left them all in there and just disabled them via the mission structure rather than disabling them properly. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to look at the cybran and illuminate tech trees, it just unlocks the upgrades themselves.

I've been messing around with them to see how the units have been designed, balance issues aside the illuminate seems to have the most effective units overall. But yeah, some serious balancing needed if the multiplayer is to be any good.

Then again, if it's like supcom 1 the single player and multiplayer ended up having all different stats anyway.

Is it just me or does this run a hell of alot smoother then SupCom1 did?

I've ran both on the same machine, and it seems like this time around the requirements aren't as hefty

Game has been scaled down in terms of poly count and some other things to work better on 360, so it will run better on lower spec machines that sc and fa could.
