Two new full, current generation games have just been added to Xbox LIVE’s Games on Demand service today, namely the excellently moody third-person action adventure game, Dead Space, as well as the original (also excellent) off-road rally racer, Colin McRae: DiRT.
If you’re not familiar with Dead Space, the setup is summed up nicely, thus:
“When an immense mining ship, the USG Ishimura, comes into contact with a mysterious alien artifact in a remote star system, its communications with Earth are mysteriously cut off.
“Engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair the Ishimura’s communications array, but he arrives to find a living nightmare-the ship is a floating bloodbath, the crew unspeakably mutilated and infected by an ancient alien scourge. Clarke’s repair mission becomes one of survival as he fights not just to save himself, but to return the artifact to the planet … at any cost.”

What about DiRT, though?
“DiRT is an off-road racing game.” OK, what else? “The player’s role is to race their way through the world of off-road motor sport, increasing their fame and prestige on their way to becoming the ultimate Off-Road Champion of Champions.”
That doesn’t really sum up the thrill and excitement of throwing your car around off-road tracks against a variety of competitors, but good enough. Check your region’s pricing for Colin McRae: DiRT over here, and watch a bunch of trailers for the game below:
