    I wonder how long the longest shot that can be made will be. It better not be some 300m either, I want a Kilometer at least

    Well I think in the demo I hit 600 easily.

    I'm pretty sure the maximum distance possible will be pretty near the realistic max range of whatever rifle you're using.

    I just played the demo for three hours on Xbox, I've never had so much mindless fun.

    I just stuck with the Sniper Elite difficulty for the most rewarding shots, I ended up hitting a guy in the head, the bullet went through and tumbled into a guy's grenade, blowing them both up.
    You sadistic fuck! Wasn't shooting him in the head enough?

    In the original, if you got in a certain spot on one level, you could make a shot over 1,000m. I'm just wondering if V2 is going to set us up for similar opportunities

    I took a shot, it clipped the back of a soldiers head, and what was left of the bullet, killed the guy a couple meters away by just hitting it him in the side. I suck at the stealth aspect though. So as soon as I take a shot, it turns into a generic shooter. I heard in one of the developers videos, that you're supposed to time yours shots with environmental noises like big explosions, but every time I shoot one guy, they all know where I am. It also doesn't help that holding your breathe drowns out almost every sound so you cant tell when to shoot to remain undetected.

    I should think/hope so. Feels very similar to V1 so I wouldn't see why they'd change it.

    Well the Copyright notice in the demo says "2011", and it mentions not being 'Representative of the final product'.

    So either this demo build is a few months old, or they didn't update the copyright text.
    Says 2011 when you first start it but 2012 when you beat it.

    Yeah that's the first, on that note I will install it again. What a wonderful thing releasing the demo later on PC for no reason.

    Apparently the reason for releasing the PC demo later has to do with the PC version and Console versions having different publishers.

    The Console version is published by 505, while the PC version is published by Rebellion themselves. They may have been pushed by their console publisher to release the console version before the PC version.

    Edited:

    They have said the demo will be out this month, so you will be able to try it on the PC before it comes out.

    I just discovered that it's possible to shoot someone's finger's off. I thought I just saw his finger bones shatter and mistook it for his fingers getting shot off at first, but then I went to the body and saw that his fingers were indeed missing and on the floor.

    Played the demo, the ballistics are pretty stupid. 30-06 shouldn't be dropping 1ft+ at 200M.

    The AI is terrible in this. I hope they really fix it so they take cover when the game comes out. It's just a shooting gallery.

    All the gameplay vids of the demo I've seen the AI has taken cover all the time.

    I've played the demo several times now on the hardest difficulty and only about one of them will go into cover at a time. The rest either just crouch, lie down, or slowly walk towards cover. I was kind of hoping you'd only be able to pop off 2-3 shots before having to move to a different shooting spot.

    It might be a early build of them game. Who knows.. Maybe it's better when it's fully released.
    Oh, definitely. I noticed the copyright on the demo is from 2011 and they released the demo in April of 2012. So yeah, there will definitely be progress. I'm impressed by the technical aspects of the x-ray and stuff, but the linear level design turns me off.

    It should, actually. 30-06 rounds can drop over one feet in that range.

    What made that even more dumb is that, iirc, they explicitly point out that you're disguised and that you don't have to worry about the Germans.
    If I remember right only a few missions have your cover blown.

    It has been a while, but all I remember is that in the first level the Germans don't attack you. Infact there is a Tiger tank that roams around and that doesn't attack either. The second mission has the Germans attacking you since you are helping other agents or something. Can't remember the rest.

    I don't know if the german soldiers have super vision but if you stop at the hole where you jump out at the beginning of the demo, (I'm playing on the PS3) right after you shoot the first guy, and you look down the street. Everyone immediately sees you.

    Also, after that part, when you climb up and take out the sniper from behind, you can sometimes get shot by the house. It's literally the building who is firing bullets at you. The PS3 demo is weird as fuck.

    I'm on the PS3 as well and theres another sniper on the building across to the right of the street, he usually crawls about so you'll have to be quick to spot him. I managed to shoot him but it went below his head and it went through his heart. lungs and stomach.

    No, he means there's a building right across the street with no one in it. The sniper you're talking about can see through it. It's happened to me on the 360.

    I don't know if many of you know this but there is some material penetration, you can shoot through wood, not sure what else. The first encounter there is an overturned.. something made of wood they'll take cover behind. Bad idea for them. It breaks Kill cams sometimes tho.

    Precisley. The sniper who craws around is easy to spot and take out. Shooting a building though, that's a whole different story.

    I thought I'd buy the original before I tried the demo, seeing as how it's on steam for only 3. Holy shit this game is good. Kind of annoying how your first shot usually missed by a few inches, and in the time it takes you to correct the aim, your target as fucked off.

    Also, best shot in the demo: Guy goes prone facing away for me, I naturally aim for the arse. Bullet enters arse, runs length of body and exits through the mouth in a shower of broken teeth.

    nice.
