Anyone try the demo yet?
Skiing was a nice surprise for me. It plays like a fun, immersive racing game. Assuming the course included in the demo was on the vanilla side, I can't wait to try out the other courses. I might even consider a DLC purchase for additional courses down the road.
Given that I've never played a golf game before, I actually found the golf in the demo easier to pick up and play than disc golf in the first SC (which I still totally suck at). By the way, for anyone buying the game in its first run, you get a voucher for a free Golf DLC pack that includes Scramble, Best Ball, and Stableford Golf modes, and a set of carbon fiber golf clubs for your Champion (according to the PS Blog
Lastly, the tennis was as fun and accurate as I hoped and expected, though of course on the easy side since the demo offers essentially the first match of the bronze difficulty. And the AI automatically moves your avatar to where the ball is coming, similar to beach volleyball in SC1. Maybe at harder difficulties you get less of an assist.
My only criticism, and I hope this is just because it's the demo, is the graphics. The bright sunlight seems to wash out a lot of the detail and textures in each of the sports, and the character modeling was a step backwards from SC1, which I always thought was decent for the type of game it was. In other words, you don't see anything remotely resembling the quality in the screen shot of the golf game posted above.
