IL2:Forgotten Battles has a demo now.

The demo lets you play 60 minutes of the full game it seems.

Now all I need to do is convince my friends to download the 1gb file. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Good work though.

Who on earth would D/L a 1 Gig file to play for 60mins?

By the time you had it configured .. time would be up http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

Quite ridiculous imho. I agree with the other poster about setting it up. I don't know about others, but it usually takes me between 1 and 2 days to come to grips with a game, configure it, and sort out the basics, especially with simulation type games becoming more and more complex (speaking from both the software and hardware compatability viewpoint).

If I look at every demo I ever downloaded, it's usually a good few hours before I can even make a basic judgement of what I think about it (unless the game is obviously not to my taste or otherwise clearly poor).

I'd probably be prepared to download a gig if I got at least 2 days play out of it, but 1 hour is absolutely, totally, out of the question.

Maybe it might not be quite so bad if you could run it for an hour, uninstall then re-install (maybe, maybe not), but what is wrong with giving users at least a day?

To compare it for you Star Wars Galaxies I just downloaded the trial (14 day) and it was 1.9gb ! and as soon as I fired it up I had to wait 20 minutes for it to update it ! So overall must have been around 2.5Gb.

1Gb download for this demo (IL2:FB) is well worth it as its a great game.
