Sonic Unleashed demo now on Xbox Live

Try out some of the better bits.

SEGA has released a Sonic Unleashed demo via Xbox Live Marketplace.

The sampler offers an early stage of the action from the game, which launched late last month. Tellingly, however, there's no sign of the shonky werehog levels. We found these sluggish, gluey, repetitive and frustrating. Rubbish, in other words, though Sonic Unleashed, in parts, can be fun.

Lest we forget, the New Xbox Experience lets you order your console to download the sampler from your PC, so everything will be in place upon arrival home.
