You're not alone in that. Many people have been reporting similar problems (see here
, for example). There's also discontent at the download times - it took three failed attempts and 12 hours for me to download it.
The demo itself, when it plays (the loading times are atrocious - twenty minutes just to the main menu) is impressive. The naval battles are *very* good, when you get the hang of them.
I'd try to get some screenshots, but the demo doesn't seem to like alt-tab.
