Demo is out.

The game is awesome, I could summarize, but Tycho/Jerry from Penny Arcade probably says it better then I ever could:

Quote from: Tycho

This thing is **** hot.

It's coming for the DS as well, but I'm having a hard time believing it will compare favorably with the demo I just ran through. Grab it for yourself, toss it in PSP/GAME/NPEH90001 and dig in. You can adjust loadouts on any member of the squad they give you, but there aren't many weapons available here. I think it looks great as well, but I found the destructible environments and precise line of sight features very appealing. When selecting an enemy to attack, that UI element that comes up is asking you if you want to add Action Points beyond the cost of the attack to improve your accuracy. At least, that's what I think. Also, I think you might be able to reserve some AP to attack enemies that cross your field of vision during their turn. At least, I think. I'm not sure.

Oh well, I guess I'll have to play it again.

yeah well, its not really fast, but you got to get the feeling of it. when i played the first level, i also thought it was boring. but when i passed level 3 it started to get interesting and fun.
