ITS THE BEST GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED, the full version is SO much better then the demo, trust me, there are hundreds maps, new mods coming out, and people willing to teach you how to play. I've had savage for over a year and half now, and its never let me down :D you should all buy it!! lol

The graphics are good, there are definitely some stradegy elements, and non-stop action. Its fun for a while, but it gets repeatative pretty quick. Re- spawn times vs life-span is pretty meager, which can get frustrating. No adventure element or single player mode, just kill kill kill. And hey, sometimes thats exactly what I am looking for. But seriously, VP gave me enough in the demo not to warrent paying for the full version, considering the shallowness of the game play and how little time it takes me to get bored with it. So if you are into perpetual fragging, this game is for you! As for myself, I prefer a little more substance and depth. For what it is... an on-line multi-player non-stop frag-fest, VP did a great job and its worth a download to scope it out! But it's no WoW.

I am having the same issue as 'Anonymous'.

Downloads, installs, launches (screen goes black like its beginning to launch & change screen resolution) and then just quits. No error message, no nothing.

I am on a duel 867 G4 running OSX 10.3.8 with a Gforce4 and 768mb of RAM.
I too would really like to try this demo!

Can anyone out there offer us some help?

Try looking in the Console program (found in your Utilities folder inside your Applications folder) for hints as to why it suddenly quits. This is a good strategy to follow when something goes wrong in Mac OS X in general. If the answer is too technical to understand, try doing Google searches to help you even more. I haven't tried the game yet, so I cannot say why it would quit suddenly, but it sounds pretty cool.

I've tried to run it on my G4 iMac - with a GeForce2 MX card and it won't work. The OpenGL Engine version isn't high enough - needs to be 1.2 (I've got 1.1). :(
