If you were in the market for something to download today, then you might do a lot worse than to shoot over to one of the download sites below to pick up the new Monolith-endorsed demonstration video of the Lithtech engine on PlayStation 2. The engine sports all the big-named features; environmental lighting and effects, breath-taking character animation, sublime graphics, and with any luck should produce a rather good game at the end of the day, if "No One Lives Forever" is anything to go by. The 27Mb demo features footage of some Deus Ex-like futuristic action / adventure title, but Monolith claim that despite the competance of this demo, the PlayStation 2 version of "No One Lives Forever" and Irrational Games' "The Lost," which will also be based on Lithtech, will use a decidedly more advanced version of the technology. The Lithtech engine receives major updates once every few months, CEO Jason Hall has told reporters, so whatever happens the new PS2 titles will measure up to the PC titles of that period, and then some. Jason also hinted that other games will be announced shortly based on the engine. You can download the demo from any of the following locations:-
