In reponse to Valenka I've added some formatting that hopefully will make it easier to differentiate between games.

'This is the most fluid boxing game I’ve ever encountered but from the demo seems to lean towards the casual gamer, which I understand.'

How did you come to the conclusion the game leans towards casual gamers?

Thanks Errod88!
caseh, the Demo I think tries to allow the casual gamer to easily pick up the game and play it with some success and enjoy it. It's not necessarily a commentary on the full game itself but rather the Demo. With big names like Tyson, and Pacquio on the demo, it easily becomes agreeable to a casual gamer. That was my take on it.

Yeah I can see what you're saying, I guess if the demo had Margarito Vs Mosely most people other than fans of the sport wouldn't have heard of them.

Aren't these demos free?

My personal favourite demo is Skate 1. You just had so much time to free skate in an open environment without being forced into tutorials etc. Skate 2 demo lowered your time limit and forced you through a tutorial I think which killed replay value. Skate 3 had an optional tutorial and decent time limit, but the location didn't match that from Skate 1.

You should really save a spot for classic demo's in your future blog. Good read, bro.

The Homefront MP demo is pretty cool too. Unlimited play time on 1 map.

On a side note my Forza 4 demo never downloaded past 99%:(

N4G-er: Yeah these demos are free. I guess the real cost is in the time it takes to download the demo. The time to install it (PS3), and use of hard drive space.

None of these is a big deal, unless you play the demo and realize it's a real dud and you either delete immediately, or let it hang in limbo on your hard drive never to be played again.

That's been my experience. So this is like an amateur guide I guess. Some direction as to what you can expect from a demo. Maybe you find one you never thought
of downloading.

GametimeUK: Thanks and time permitting will try to get as many demos as possible. New and older.

The Daredevil: Forza 4 stopped at 99%! Been there. Not with Forza 4 but with some others. I think it was my Xbox. It was a while back. Homefront, haven't tried it.

If this list and the additions in Part 2 encourage you to download some demos you would not otherwise have considered, then I think that's a good thing.

Bayonetta.

No games demo made me go out and buy the full game as fast as the Bayonetta demo did. I only played for about 10 minutes, and then I swear to God, I immediately stopped and deleted it, to not further ruin my full experience with it, then went to Gamestop and got it the same day I downloaded it. The game is AMAZING. The demo was easy to pick up on and fun, and there was two arenas, with two bosses I believe. Highly recommend any one to download the demo if they haven't tried the game yet.

I think the demo is only on Xbox Live though, I dont remember finding it on PSN.
