15 Killer Game Demos You Have to Try

15 Killer Game Demos You Have to Try
By
Killer Game Demos

Computer game demos offer users a taste of upcoming and released computer games. They can showcase features that a game developer may want to highlight or even provide some surprising replay value outside of the full game itself. We've compiled a list of game demos that we've taken a shine to, ranging from big budget, brand name AAA games to quirky, little indy releases. Give them a shot, and who knows, you might also find a game worth buying.

    What a coincidence. I rarely try demos, but I just finished the XCOM demo before seeing this article. I wasn't impressed though, although it seems to be getting praise. Maybe if it was $20 or $30 instead of $60.

    That Kung Fu game looks interesting. Apart from that only minecraft interests me in that list. (Minecraft has some sick stuff, like the star trek ship scale 1/1 or earth project :D .

    The project where the ship looks like blocks, can't move or do anything interesting but takes hours to make? The wonders of unemployment...

    I love Orcs Must Die 2! The game engine is near-perfect, the graphic design is excellent, the play balance is superb (there are no killer tricks) and it's funny and fun to play. It takes a long time to get bored with this one. The one drawback of this sequel, for single-player, is that all the levels are set up for coop (two-player) action. So there are always two goals to defend, which I simply don't care for. Others may find it adds to the challenge.

    the only thing that even looks slightly good, and i'm already being generous, is Sniper Elite. If anyone is really into a sort of sandbox, Soft Bodied (cars are destroyed in all ways possible) car simulator, you need to check out BeamNG Drive. they have a free tech demo and the Paid Alpha is only $5. Also another good demo i didn't see in here is Kerbal Space Program. This game is like nasa's Do-It-Yourself program where you build rockets and control them and ultimately fail at everything possible. They have a free demo on their website (https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/demo.php) and the paid version is like $10-$15 or something like that. Anyway, these are two great games that are absolutely incredible and more people should play them.
