 :D Looks pretty slick. Have to say the whole Matrix presentation is very professional. They have come a long way.

Video of action shows they did not implement friendly fire.  The guys out front were immune.  And the bugs don't seem to moe nearly fast enough.  Have find the movie and rewatch the shower fight scenes.

Got to say - the demo hasn't overwhelmed me. Very weak sound ... and less than visceral.

Just another day on the BF forum ... one demented idiots reaction to BF disagreeing about the thickness of the armour on a Tiger II turret mantlet.

Personally, I would like a game based on the Heinlein book.  Jump troops with flamethrowers and nuclear missiles.  However, the bugs in the movie series were great.

Good use of the IP in terms of presentation and UI. Gameplay though? Meh.

It has potential to be fun and addictive, but it would need some work to get there and I'm not sure they'll make it.

Based on what most of you are saying, maybe this thread should have been named "So what if the Order of Battle devs made a STARSHIP TROOPERS game?"   :-"

Amazing what a little comma can do to the meaning of a sentence.

I've been quite enjoying it.  I agree the sound is very weak, though.  With at least five months until release, hopefully this is an area that could still be improved upon.

I actually really enjoyed the demo. But am really bummed about there being no  multiplayer in an RTS game still. This title reminds me of command and conquer way back in the day.
