Demo Roundup - 28th Jan to 4th Feb

Conflict, Katamari, DMC4.

It's been another bare week for demos. But I stood up on a surfboard in the freezing cold waters of Cornwall. That made me happy, at least until I fell off and hit my back on a rock and tried not to cry. You could say I had a bit of conflict with the water, which is interesting, as Conflict: Denied Ops is one of the new samplers to tell you about.

It's up on Live Marketplace and in the US PlayStation Store (available last week on PC), and lets you creep around in a tactical shooting manner on your own or co-operatively with a friend. But alas, initial reactions show you lot to be rather unimpressed with Pivotal and its new casual direction for the series.

Also on Live is the European Beautiful Katamari demo, which lets you roll the world up in high definition for the first time. We were less charmed with the full offering than usual.

The only other demo on Live was the US Turok sampler, which is already available here. Should pop up this Thursday on PAL PS3 too, or you can pop onto the US Store and grab it now.

Elsewhere, you in the Sony camp will finally get your hands on the Devil May Cry 4 taster (again, if you haven't already got it from the US Store). Expect our review of the gull game very soon indeed.

Also up for PS3 grabs is a demo for MX vs. ATV: Untamed, the dirty racer from THQ with new generation mud and stones and wobbly wheels. It's the same demo 360 owners had back in November.

And that's all the weather.
