A demo for Beijing 2008 is now available to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace. The free demo is available in all Xbox Live Regions and the dashboard text is as follows:

[ESRB: E (Everyone)] Embrace the competitive spirit of the world’s most prestigious sporting event, represent your country and bring home the gold, Beijing 2008 delivers an entertaining and immersive Olympic experience. The superior graphics capture the fine emotional detail of all 38 events where a fraction of a second becomes the difference between winning and losing. Innovative game mechanics challenge a player’s time, speed and co-ordination. Compete for glory with up to seven friends online while you strive to break records and lead your country to victory.

Our very own gold medallist, Anthony Barker, reviewed Beijing 2008. You can read his review here. Personally I think it’s a little bit too late to release the demo, especially as the Olympics have now come to a close. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the demo and the game.
