Demo Roundup - Christmas to 14th Jan

What you might have missed.

The Club or Yakuza 3. Those are our pick of the new demos. You can probably scoot off now. Not a lot else to suggest unless you own a PC. Oh, you do. Better read on then!

For you there are a handful, lead by gritty shooter Kane & Lynch. Reviews were unspectacular, despite there being a great story buried underneath some slapdash action. US PS3 accounts can grab a demo of this as well.

PC enthusiasts might also like a taste of Sam & Max Season Two with Moai Better Blues, which we will be reviewing very soon. Otherwise it's Dawn of War expansion Soulstorm and sporty remake Speedball 2 - Tournament demos for you.

Elsewhere Japanese PS3 account owners can grab a pair of Yakuza 3 demos, as mentioned, while Europeans can snaffle up one for The Club - also available on Live.

Apart from those you will have to rewind a couple of weeks for the Burnout: Paradise demo on Live and PSN.
