That was my constant thought throughout the entire demo! Great graphics, very solid controls with satisfying shooting, and 3 awesome characters!
There's lots of hints at a much wider more intricate story than just the average 'evil-dude-called-Ahmed-takes-over-the-world' schtick. Setting the game in Dubai is a really cool idea, and I'm guessing the dev team will have SOME level where the gargantuan Burj Khalifa building is put to good use!
I even thought good ol' Nolan North wasn't too 'Drakey' which he can sometimes be!
Overall a brilliant game, with a VERY lengthy demo giving a pretty great taste of the way the game is gonna play. I knew nothing about this going in apart from some 'buzz' about the sand mechanics, and I came away really wanting to know more about the story and characters!
Anyone else really looking forward to it now?
