I have to say I wasn't overly impressed (didn't actually finish it before getting overly bored). The game as a whole is overly scripted, you just run from one bit to the next, hit the buttons and move on. There's no searching of various rooms or exploring and very little time to do anything but follow the script. My biggest gripe however is with the AI, or rather lack of it. It seems really dum to design a game where you're going to play the leader of a special op's team but not put any system in place to command your troops. You can't instruct specialists (or civilians) to stay put while you deal with the enemy, hence I found myself repeatedly reloading 'cos said specialist had gotten themselves killed.

Over all I'd say it's better than the first one and could be enjoyable from a 'run round and shoot everything in site' kinda way. But I'm rather disapointed it's not more than it is. Maybe the game itself will be better than the demo.
