Yeah, my impressions were the same really. The graphics were pretty good, but the motion blurring/DOF at times looked layered on, as it wasn't processed in 3D, but in 2D, and I can notice that.
I was impressed by the A.I though, and the way when you hit people, they reacted where you hit them, which is missing in quite a few games.
I did feel it was linear though, so nothing different there. i.e, you have to kill all the baddies before something will complete to let you carry on, like in the warehouse section.
The demo took me around 8 minutes to complete, and I was expecting more. After the fade out, I was expecting another short section, but didn't get it
I've got it pre-ordered. Its certainly worth the buy, by the looks of it.
Yeah, they messed that up. There is no logo in that box... haha. I just made the gamma so there was good black levels, without spoiling the upper whites, etc.
