Universe at War demo on XBL

Consoles version of ex-C&C blokes' new RTS

Sega has slapped a demo of sci-fi RTS Universe at War: Earth Assault on Xbox Live, so you can make your own decision on the shaky 'does it work with a joypad' debate yourself.

The demo weighs in at just under 550MB (in case the size actually makes a difference on your download decision) and lets you sample a section of the latest RTS from the boys and girls and Petroglyph, who used to work on Command & Conquer, don't you know.

You can read the review of the PC version right here, which tells us the game's quite good, but not brilliant.

Look out for a summary on the Xbox 360 version, controls and all, shortly.
