WORST. DEMO. EVER! (Battlezone, Xbox Live Arcade)

April 19th, 2008 by Tommy Gun

Could this be the shortest demo ever? Yes, this is on the “high-speed” version of the game (“throttle monkey”), and I did kill the tanks as fast as possible, but my very first try at the demo on normal wasn’t much longer (30 secs?). The demo ends after you kill four tanks, so it’s possible to play longer, but only if you suck.

It was pretty fun, but maybe at the 40 second mark you realize there’s nothing else to do. The game got pretty mixed reviews, although it’s only $5. Eh.

    If I remember right, the Scramble demo was ludicrously short, although probably not as bad as this one. For me the trial for Screwjumper was both the worst demo on Live, although my friends got a good chuckle out of the voiceovers: “Green good! Red bad!” “You were killed by burn up!” All said, I really don’t like Microsoft’s plan of delisting games to reduce the clutter.
