Codemasters has this week released a minute-long video demonstrating some of the physics tricks the player can take advantage of in Free Radical Design's forthcoming project-your-mind-'em-up Second Sight, which is due out on PS2, Xbox and GameCube in the second half of 2004.

For those already up to speed, this video shows lead character John Vattic taking a novel approach to dealing with some of the more unsympathetic people he meets during his attempts to escape a US medical facility.

We're starting to get quite excited about Second Sight. In fact, it's the first time since Star Wars that we've been inspired to try and lift things without using our hands. So far it's not working.
