Dark Sector demo springs onto Live

Glaive us quite a fright.

Microsoft has finally flung a demo for Dark Sector onto Xbox Live Marketplace.

Anyone in the world can play it - even Germany - and it should give you a taste for the shooter that aimed to win our hearts with a mutant hero who had a Glaive for an arm and Zelda-like puzzles to solve.

Dark Sector came out in April and had lots of promise, but struggled to leave a lasting impression on us, although lots of you liked it. Perfect for a test-drive, then, if you quite fancied it but were put off by the initial asking price and mediocre scores.

Pop over to our Dark Sector review for a detailed examination.
