Halo demo released

Play on The Silent Cartographer and Blood Gulch.

Two years, two releases, and more fiercely defensive fans than a Korean dictator - if you haven't played Halo yet, then you've missed out on a very significant event in gaming. Wait no longer. Thanks to those affable gents at Gearbox, you can now get your hands on a PC demo (or, in Microsoft style, 'trial version') containing The Silent Cartographer section of the single player game and the charmingly named Blood Gulch multiplayer map. It's 131MB in size, and there are links all over the place, including a BitTorrent download at 3D Gamers. While you're waiting to play it, you can enjoy our review.
