Red Alert 3 demo on Xbox Live

2GB sampler available to Gold subs.

EA has released an Xbox 360 demo of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, although the 2GB sampler is currently only available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

Red Alert 3 ratchets up the silly in EA's long-running real-time strategy series but, as Quintin observed in our Red Alert 3 PC review, all the war dolphins and Tim Curries in the world can't disguise the fact it's a chaotic and entertaining update with excellent, campaign-length co-operative play.

The Xbox 360 version is currently unreviewed on Eurogamer, but we'll get to that in due course with any luck, and find out whether EA's had any more luck getting the fiddly PC genre to work on the everyman 360 pad.

Oh, and since New Xbox Experience now allows you to download stuff remotely, those of you with your 360 on at home might want to pop over to the Xbox Live Marketplace website and set it going.
