    I haven't read or heard anything about this, and Amazon lists as coming out in 2 weeks! The screen shots look interesting, though not amazing. But I love the sound of playing through Die Hard! [​IMG] I found the original Die Hard Trilogy game rather underwhelming. [​IMG]
    The details for this one sound interesting:
    -40 single-player levels-one on each floor of the Nakatomi Plaza
    -Missions are based on the film but also include many unique never-before-seen scenarios
    -A bag-inspired inventory system allows players to store weapons and devices
    -Morale System lets players' decisions affect the reaction of hostages and the aggressive behaviours of the terrorists
    -Nakatomi Plaza is re-created in exacting detail per the blockbuster Die Hard movie

    Let's hope it doesn't suck. Has anyone heard anything else about this one, or played the demo. I was a bit put off by Amazon's low £16.99 price - why so low?

    It will probably suck. I think there is a demo out somewhere for it.

    I've fooled around with the demo. It's pretty cool. The graphics look standard for FPS. The AI of the enemies in the demo was pretty good as well. The terrorists are a bit wiley and don't just stand there when I kill them.

    I played the demo for all of 15 minutes before deciding it was another extremely bland action game. A complete yawn fest, at least from the small portion I played.

    Well, I heard this uses the LithTech engine now, but there used to be a Half-Life mod in development called Nakatomi Plaza which sought to recreate the first Die Hard movie. And, in all likelihood, the product was ambitious enough that Sierra decided to pick it up and publish it at a lower price in order to see some return on the game, instead of it being a free mod.

    Now whether it's good enough to warrant that, I couldn't tell you, but the screenshots from its Half-Life days looked fine enough to me.

    The graphics (atleast from the demo) aren't going to blow anyone away. They weren't, however, offensive to my senses.

    They are using the Lithtech engine...so you are right, this isn't going to blow anyone away graphically.

    Ok, stupid question: I can't figure out for the life of me how to use the wire cutters once you get them after killing all the terrorists in the first level ( 39th floor ). Any hints ?
