Thought I'd update you with what I have been trying out recently, first off I have been downloading a few demo's on Xbox live.
The first demo I downloaded was Resident Evil 5, which has two playable levels. I quite like the look of it and was quite impressed when I saw that its the first ever game to use a virtual camera. The only bad points of it was that when shooting you can't walk back slowly, you have to remain stationary while shooting.
Second demo I downloaded was Halo Wars, which looks really good but I didn't play it much, the demo looked pretty limited, so I'm now waiting for my rental copy to come through the post and hopefully I will have time to write a review for it.
The last demo on Xbox live was Tom Clancy's H.A.W.K which is a Jet Fighter simulation game based in the future, the control's I found really easy to use, I had a few games on it and will look forward to picking up a copy of it soon. Here's a trailer for it.
Other than that I have allowed into a closed beta of the Battlefield Hero's game, a free cartoon shooter, similar to Team Fortress 2. The game is basically Battlefield 1942 but with a cartoon and comical twist. I'm quite enjoying playing that, here's a trailer for it.
I hope to update soon.
