A demo of Criterion's latest foray onto the city streets breaking the traffic laws with Need for Speed: Most Wanted is available to download now, offering you the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage, before letting you loose with a further three Jack Spots.

With three stretches of Fairhaven's city roads to tear down, you can sample the Porsche 911 Carrera S, the Audi R8 GT Spyder and the Ford Focus RS500 with the opportunity to earn up to 50,000 Speed Points that you can then carry over into the full game should you decide to go out and buy it.

You can download the Need for Speed: Most Wanted demo from the Xbox Live Marketplace now and find out whether it scratches your, erm... need for speed. Need for Speed: Most Wanted is out now. You can check out our review to find out what we made of Criterion's open-world racer. Oh, there's a new trailer for the demo too. Look:

Oh sweet, I was holding off on buying the game as AC III took priority so this is something nice to hold me over.

@6 Because this site wants to continue to be invited to preview events. You can't be invited to a preview event and then shit on the game...

@3 Developers can't just pull demos out of thin air when ever they want. It takes a team a month or two to put them together, and then combine that with MS and Sonys certification process and things don't always line up. It could be worse and they don't do a demo.

@6 Last time I checked a 75 was a good review.

I will check out the demo, but already decided to pass on this and Forza. Time for a break in racing for me, though I still have Forza 4 to finish...

To each their own, but I love the game. SO much fun. Way better (more fun) than Forza. Keeping in mind that my fave current Gen racer is Burnout Paradise.

I'm in the same boat as #4. Assassin's Creed III has taken over my console, with the occasional Fifa 13 meet with the lads for some Online Pro Club Matches. I'm currently downloading the Demo now.

Users on metacritic have it right - The Run 5.5, Most Wanted 2012 5.5.

Nuff said. I finished this before the demo came out and if I had tried the demo I would have saved my cash.

Criterion should never be allowed to make a NFS game again since all this game was was Burnout with a NFS title.......what I'm saying is the game is nice but since it's not need for speed it SUCKS ASS

I agree 100% with SatNiteEduardo, i was so looking forward to NFS only for it to be a total pile of crap... Waste of money indeed! They could had least given us a story of some kind...

I dunno I think I'd play a Halo game again before I'd buy a straight-up Racing/Driving game.(And I'm mostly anti-halo anymore & lately disillusioned with FPS games as whole)
After NFS:Underground 1&2 wore out their welcome I just never had much patience for them again.

Most of you saw those Trailers, so why are you disappointed about this Game? I think this is a really Good Game.
