Batman: Arkham Asylum Will Get a Downloadable Demo

PS3Vault: 'If you've been wondering why you haven't heard anything about a demo for the upcoming and great looking Batman: Arkham Asylum, you can stop wondering. The official forums for the game have a notice that assures us that there will be a demo release at some point. It doesn't give any details, other than the demo being available for PS3, 360 and PC, so we have no date, yet...'

played the Batman Arkham Asylum demo at target

Same here, I played it at Target. I was hoping for a downloadable demo, it's kind of hard to play the game and really get into it when you have like 10 kids behind you just starring and asking questions like you're part of the damn development team. "What game is this?" "Who do you do that?" "when is this coming out?"

At least at home I'd be able to at least really get into it.

I remember asking to get dropped of at Wallmart when I was a kid just so I could play B&K on the N64. Beat that whole game in the store. Beat SMW 64 like that too! :D

Well Gamecrazy still has that "try before you buy" thing...just not sure how long you could "try" before they say hey you need to "buy" lol

@armo and blaze
I can't be certain, but I'd assume this demo is actually going to be the real demo and will be different. As far as I know the one you played at target was just a combat demonstration, not so much a demo of the game. At least that's what I played at Walmart.

Agreed. I remember that when I was a kid too. Going to the store and as soon as I walk in me and my brother tell mom we'd be in the electronics. And off we'd go to go hit up the lil game set up they had (for each platform out at the time too) and join all the other kids there waiting in line to play the game that was being demoed that week. Was like a popular arcade machine.

I also miss the good old days when you could play the demo or full game at your local game store.

I will defiantly be picking this game up. Even if there was no demo coming out. I think i may have to go with the PS3 version due to being able to play as the Joker though. But I may wait and see what version of the game is rated higher.

Nice. I have been following this game for quite sometime. This may be the best Batman game yet.

I was pretty down on this game for a long time given the spotty history of Batman games, but I got to try it out at Best Buy and I'm genuinely excited for it now. The combat is fun and fluid and it looks amazing. Didn't get much of a feel for the stealth elements or anything, but I'm sure it will pan out.

Oh yeah, you can target individual body parts on your enemies and huck batarangs at them mid-combat. It's not even that hard to pull off and it feels AWESOME.

yea I agree it looks awesmome. Cant wait for the demo.

I can't wait for the actual game to come out. I think I will have more fun playing as The Joker in the game.
