Though my computer meets the specs, they seem a bit high for a demo.

Everything seems standard.

Except: Intel Pentium 4 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 2.4 GHz.

Now that is pretty powerful. I bought a new computer about two years ago, and I can see that the 'Recommended' specs are creeping up. I have plans on buying another computer in October. I cannot believe that within two years my computer is becoming 'game challanged'. I have an 'AMD Atholon XP 3.0 GHz'. Everything else is way below my other specs.

High? No way :p those specs look pretty normal to me.

True that it seems quite high considering that it shouldn't look too much better then the original.
My guess is that if you can run the original, you can run the new one :)

Probably a safe bet.

But I'm struggling to get 600megs of free space!

I don't like the demo. It always takes to long to load. I've never boughten it. Is it slow on the real thing? (I have it for the PSP, and it's slow on there too)
