I have several friends who absolutely swear by this series of games. Maybe I'm spoiled, but, there are some real letdowns IMO. Among them: 1. No environmental manipulation: You can't use/destroy anything like boxes, boards, vehicles, lights or anything else in the environment. It's just all staticly drawn. Example: Throw a grenade and you see a big flash, but none of the surrounding items is affected. I'd expect things to go flying hither and yon in thousands of pieces. Not even the vehicles budge. 2. Squad commands don't work to expectations: I commanded my team to HOLD position while I went down through the stairwell. My intention was to flank the enemy from behind and then draw my comrades from the front. Lo and behold, as I opened the door at the bottom of the stairwell, there was one of my comrades. Before I actually ID'd him as such, I shot and killed him! He wasn't supposed to be there yet! 3. Overall Dissatisfied: I'm just not sure what draws anyone to this series under these circumstances. Not even a prone position for sniper focusing. I think I'd rate this maybe a 3 on a scale of 0 - 10. Does anyone expect the released version to be any better than this demo?
