    Demo's or Reviews ?

    Before you buy a game do you always play the demo or do you trust magazine/website or friends reviews ?

    I usually play a demo if I can because I have cable modem so I can acually download them. Before I had cable I would just trust that magazines opinion.

    I normally check out the demo before buying. I remember playing the Half Life demo for about 3 minutes and then cruising out to get the retail game! LOL! Some games just feel right.

    I read the reviews, check out a couple sites and what tehy said, most likely I would go to hardwarecentral, read about it because usually alot of people would be talking about it, and then try the demo. If it still interests me, I would get the game.

    Always try the Demo. Recently I tried the Demo for Airfix dogfighter. A ton of fun, you fly a model plane, in doors, nice graphics, smooth. 35MB but worth it.
