7 Times You Got the Wrong Idea from the Demo

  • Published: 08 June 2017
  • The point of a free game demo is to be a sample of the game proper. Sometimes though, they're nothing of the sort. Just consider these times we got the wrong end of the stick from the demo, and subscribe for more videos like this! tinyurl.com/SubToOxbox

    Brutal Legend for instance is a game in which heavy metal roadie Eddie Riggs is transported to the heavy metal world to fight the forces of the demon Ormagoden.

    What it also is, in a fact you would be completely unaware of if you only played the Brutal Legend demo, is a real-time strategy game.

    The demo leaves you with the impression of a heavy metal God of War, and, to be fair, I can see why they lead with that, because that sounds awesome.

    In the final game, however, once you get out of the opening few hours, the big battles all take the form of real-time strategy skirmishes in which you select units, boost them with various buffs, and send them against your foes’ armies of S&M demons and moody goths.

    It’s still enjoyable, but really, careful and meticulous strategic planning is the least metal thing in existence. That’s why there isn’t a black metal theme for Microsoft Excel.

    Ever gotten the wrong idea from the demo? Kindly let us know in the comments.

    As bad as people may think about Sonic Unleashed, it's still better than Sonic The Hedgehog (2006)

          Oh wow, nice job to the devs for getting an RPG Maker title into a serious Top 10 (er, 7) list.

            That FF15 demo looks like an alternate Toy Story level for Kingdom Hearts

                Is it me or does Eddie look like a ripped Jack Black? Just asking.

                          There was more than one demo for FF XV. The one on this video was more comparable to bonus content that gave you an edge in the game.

                            The other demo was more comparable to the game. The quest was vastly different as you had to kill the behemoth to get 25k to fix your car at hammerhead.

                            Wtf? That was not the majority of Brutal Legend. Ypu act like thengame does a complete 180 when it actually just ads different aspects. That demo was appropriaye for the majority of the game

                                Just because a demo doesn't represent the final game, that doesn't mean that the demo was bad.
                                It could also mean that the company received a lot of feedback and changed the game according to that feedback.

                                                    seriously , in the first minute of your video you already make a mistake , ormagoden is not a demon , it's a god beast who is killed by the demonix
                                                    and at 1:48 who are you to say that strategy planing game is the least metal things in existence ? you are not even a metal head so don't speak about things you don't know
                                                    I bet you think a metal listener is the cliché of the big brute who only like action game , well guess what , I love metal and I almost never play pure action game , I largely prefere strategic games and RPG

                                                      to be fair halo 2 was never going to have the master chief in it, but 6 months before release they realised their error and hastily put together a mix match of both the arbiter and master chief. And you wondered why Halo 2 campaign was bad... i mean really bad...

The game is actually about a long slog down darkened corridors to fight the same enemy over and over. Only to be periodically interrupted by the whiniest, ugliest, Japanese vidal-sassoon millenial complaining about why nobody else ever thinks about his needs. I imagine the interesting bits must've been in the DLC, which cost approximately $380.
