Alone in the Dark
Alone In The Dark and Wall-E Demos Hit XBLM
Written Monday, August 04, 2008 By Jason Debelyak

Major Nelson revealed today that two brand new demos hit the Xbox Live Marketplace in all regions today:

  • Alone in the Dark, the action game from Atari, weighs in at 1.35 GB. 
  • Wall•E, the game based off of the Pixar mvie, somehow takes up even more space at 1.44 GB.

If either game interests you, they're now available to download, so have at it.  However, if we see you playing Wall•E when it's not for achievements, we may just have to laugh at you.

Alone in the Dark has to be candidate for worst game of the year. I died in the middle of a cutscene last time I played it.

I have to see first hand how bad Alone in the Dark is.

And I'm interested in Wall-E. Could be fun co-op.

The demo is NOT going to help Alone in the Dark. After going through the whole thing I can honestly say it's the best worst game I've ever played. A very strange experience from start to finish teetering from awesome to terrible from one moment to the next.

wow i thought alone in the dark was ment to be awsome after all the delays and stuff :| i was actually hyped because i thought it was going to be one of the biggies of 08 oh well. Im still going to download the demo tho, i still what to play what all the fuss is about. haha.

Wall e is a terrible game but i got all acheivments in like 7-9 hours i cant remember but its really short and way to easy.

The problem with AITD is that it's just broken and buggy like no released game should be. A couple more months on character control would have resolved a lot of problems. It's one of those things you have to see to believe and if you or anyone else has the chance to rent it and can suffer past chapter 2 I recommend it.

I was actually going to buy AITD but I rented it and realized what a mistake it would have been. Wall-E might just be for achievements for me depends but people on my list thinks all kid games are easy point, but Open Season was tougher than they thought, Wall-E might be a rent for me unless a better game is up for renting.
