A playable demo of Need For Speed: Most Wanted is available to download now on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network.

The demo offers players a glimpse at Most Wanted's open world city of Fairhaven, and lets them take one of four different cars out for a spin: the Aston Martin V12 Vantage, Porsche 911 Carrera S, Audi R8 GT Spyder and the Ford Focus RS500.

The demo will also let players earn up to 50,000 Speed Points (Most Wanted's form of XP), which will carry over to the full game if you decide to splash the cash.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted launched earlier this month on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, mobile devices and PC. The game debuted at number 5 in the UK Top 40, before climbing to the number 4 spot earlier this week.

We called the game "one of the smartest, most enjoyable racing games of 2012" in our review, before slapping on a 9/10.

Looks like they are not bothering with a Vita demo. Just like the didn't bother with any trailers or any marketing really.

Aaaand... that's a no, didn't do anything for me other than annoy with with an unskippable intro, timed demo, 'invite a friend playing this demo to unlock this car' (that one really annoyed me), Back Button features taking too long to load, making me think the game had frozen when it was just loading the next 'here's a menu and an announcer to get in the way of you actually playing' feature, crash scenes bringing back memories of death animations in Too Human and, unbelievably, lag-type symptoms in places (are you kidding? in a demo?).

To be fair, the letters EA at the start probably meant I was going into the demo negatively in the first place, so to balance the negatives... nope, can't do it.

It's on Live, 1.49GB download. For all that I whinge about adverts on the XBox Live Dashboard that one actually came in handy.
