Any one played this yet? Demos been out for a couple days now but I haven't gotten around to DLing it yet. The movies for it looked incredible.

Was ok, short though. A real small glimpse of the game was given imo, so much so it's hard to draw a conclusion.

Just played it, you're right it is too short. Expecially for a 1.3 GB download. :(

It was pretty impressive though. I think the melee combat is better than Oblivion but the integration of magic is worse (you have to sheath your weapon to cast). Movement also felt a bit off. Rather soft and what I would describe as "Quakeish."

All in all I had fun playing it. I'm not sure it's enough of a taste to make me want to buy the game but it certainly left me wanting more. ;)

With the little we all played... :) The melee seems to have a few things better and a few things worse compared to Oblivion, a little to fast overall. With magic I just had it on the hotkey, I pressed the button and then clicked left and I was firing, that seemed to work fine. One thing I know is the UI is going to be a welcome change over Oblivion. I don't think Bethesda to this day understands how much a pain in the ass the pc interface was to what we are accustomed to.
