Blazing Angels demo takes off

The Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII demo is now available on Xbox Live Marketplace for downloadable dogfight action. This is a relatively un-hyped title that's supposed to better than some may have expected. Amateur fighter pilots please comment with your first air combat impressions.

XBL has turned in solid  week for demo freaks with Burnout: Revenge, Blazing Angels, and now Battlefield 2: Modern Combat hitting Thursday.

[Thanks Shane  et. al]

1. I thought this game was pretty good actually thinking about buying it

2. Just played through the Demo, it's really good. I can't wait for this game to hit. And I really can't wait for BF2.

3. I liked the demo as well. I do hope they can up the visuals a little though...

Now to find money for Blazing Angels, Oblivion, Battlefield and Burnout.

Anyone want to buy a kidney?

4. don't sleep on the Ridge Racer 6 demo either, I ended up buying it! It's great! I'll report back after trying Blazing Angels tonight.

Thank god the developers are taking advantage of the downloadable demo system. It is a win-win situation for all involved:

1. Saves gamers time and money by not having to buy OXM for a demo disc.

2. Gamers will end up buying games they didn't plan on buying (take me for example with RR6)resulting in higher sales figures

3. Gamers have an alternative to playing Xbox Live Arcade games and regular 360 titles
