Things have a way of evening out over the course of time. I do have to say after playing the demo and being able to get up to speed in no time this is an enjoyable game and true at 50% off it is like stealing. I'll buy some DLCs to make up for it, great job Lordz Studios and the publishers , many , many , thanks!!!
Thanks for the heads up, downloading the demo now. I have been sat on the fence about this game due to the price and the fact I have so many others I can play.
You are right, when demos are approached in the right manner, they will ussually tell you if the game is something that you will play and therefore worth purchasing. I always play through a couple of times as I have been caught out by demo "wow" factor and also by demo "blugh" factor on first run.
I find reading reviews only, can put me off games as someone will always point to something that is a turn off or major fault in their eyes. I think I get caught up in other peoples likes and dislikes when reading reviews or forum comments.
Also, some games are abused because of bugs and faults, that only exist on the writers PC (or have been patched out, but the writer has not patched). So many times I find myself playing a game that has been written off as bugged, only to find no issues whatsoever (I never purchase day one).
For example, I have FIFA Manager 2011 game. This was given bad comments in reviews and forums and I wasn't even going to bother, but I downloaded the demo and played through a couple of times. I bought it and it is one of my favourite games; I think it is the most fun football managment game out there. Turns out, looking back, the forum writers and review writers dislikes are based on the overhyped love of "Football Manager", a game I dislike (based on my having bought and played unfortunately, life stealing game)....
