SoF First Look

I set my modem to download the Soldier of Fortune demo as I slept last night (it took about six hours at 4.7K/sec). I installed it this morning. The graphics are pretty slick and the EAX sounds are nice. The realistic settings really draw you in. The violence is close to being a little too real for my tastes (exit wounds, etc.) but that can turned down or off altogether. I like how you have to be stealthy at times and have good aim (breaking out the shotgun against a thug holding someone hostage is a bad idea). Definitely worth the download if you have the patience.
