Shadow Complex Demo Glitch unlocks full game on XBox 360

Shadow Complex Demo Glitch unlocks full game on XBox 360Regardless of the fact that a lot of people find this morally objectionable – even going so far as to call it ‘stealing’ - it is currently possible to exploit a glitch on the demo of Shadow Complex which allows you to play the entire game for free. I for one am not going to lose any sleep over taking advantage of a programming error which, at the worst, is going to put a tiny dent in the already astronomical profits of some corporate giant.

So if like me, you don’t see this as anything particularly immoral, this is what to do.

1) Firstly, download the free Shadow Complex demo from Xbox Live Market Place.

2) Then, as you near the end of the demo, you will come up against a big mechanical spider. When you eventually defeat this boss and it starts exploding, keep hammering the start button.

3) Then, when it lets you, select ‘Load Last Save’ and this will enable you to bypass the point at which the demo should end and play the entire Shadow Complex game for free.

The only problem is you will not be able to save, however, as the game quite short, it is possible to complete in one sitting. Alternatively, for a video guide on exactly how to unlock the entire game from the demo check out this post on Savygamer. Enjoy!

Nice idea - but sounds like a great way to get your XBox Live account blocked - they do this to people for much lesser offences !!!

Not worth the risk of getting blocked on xbox live

Why not download it, disconnect from your 360 from the net, do the glitch, play the game, delete when complete, then reconnect to the net?
Surely due to no save file it will be very difficult for them to tell otherwise what your doing?
