    The Resident Evil 5 Demo was japanese only but you could download it and put in on disc to play here in the states. I imagine you can do the same with this one...

    I wanted to try the First Templar - I don't think it got good reviews but a demo is better late than never I guess.

    What's the point in releasing a demo for a 9 month old game that got middling reviews? Seems like more trouble than it's worth for the developer.

    Good call. It's definitely up, but when you go to the Marketplace online and search for the release date, it doesn't show up!

    Will update now. ;)

    Played the First Templar - can tell that it's a "budget" game but I enjoyed it...reasonable story and simple gameplay make for a good relaxing enjoying game. I'd recommend it.

    Just played through The First Templar and I would avoid. Also, when played in co-op, only the host gets the 'complete game' achievements - farsical.

    TFT Game is poor, its made for 6 year old Childs, press X and block some times.
    And its totally linear and has nothing to explore or even to loot/farm what ever!

    Maybe a good game for G-Whores but i stay away from it. ;)

    The First Templar has all the characteristics of a bad game but somehow keeps you interested long enough to finish it. Simple, linear, and somehow fun enough.

    Syndicate demo froze my xbox twice already. Seemed pretty laggy too. There's nothing amazing in it in my opinion. Pretty much regular shooter with upgradeable abilities and weapon improvements. You also have to hold left button now and then for different actions... yawn-a-roonie.
    The wobbly version of the original soundtrack gives me shivers...terrible.

    But still, as a big fan of the original Syndicate, I'm going to wait and see how the final game shapes up and what kind of reviews it gets.

    I have found the Binary Domain demo with my Japanese account but forgot I do not have gold for that account uahaha. This sucks.
