QSF5.com - Batman: Arkham Asylum PS3 Demo Impressions

QSF5.com writes:

"This Batman: Arkham Asylum demo sits along side BioShock as one of the few demos which actually does the game a service. It's incredibly well made, it makes great use of the source material and it's releasing well before the holiday rush. What more can you ask for? Okay lots, but if you're looking for the best Batman game to date; give this one serious consideration. I certainly will."

I have already played the demo 7 times when I got in from work. This is truly the best Batman game made. You can tell that the developers really got into this project, and truly cared if the game was good or not. If you don't have this game already pre-ordered, u need too!!!!

Sarcasm2995d ago

Agreed!

Finally, a comic game that kicks major @$$.

The graphics, presentation, gameplay, and everything is top notch!

I'm just glad that Batman actually can get ownt by thugs... well, the ones with guns anyway.

It's a good game, but not my type.

Biggest gripe. "Why the f*ck does Batman have spider sense?!"

Visuals are average (f*k I've been playing KZ2 those last days, I'm spoiled sorry), models are low poly but the art style creates a good atmosphere appropriate for this game. I liked the demo but I dont feel the urge of getting the game day one. Combat is fluid and it seems you will be overpowered/outnumbered so stealth is a must, I like that. I still need to make my mind about this one. Amazon is offering a good discount if you pre-order.

BTW, game runs at 1080p, something I wasnt expecting.

...i'm pretty happy with the treatment the devs have given him, and the inclusion of more enemies than just the joker all of whom have been given a really cool new look (maybe to fit the unreal engine?).

just a few minor gripes:

-Batman's cape is...weird...
-The detective mode gameplay seems a little bit repetative already.
-fighting seems too simplistic right now.

but it's just a demo, and i'll probably warm up to it. what with the MW2 delays everywhere i'll probably just buy it because it's actually out!

plus i really really want that batarang from play.com...

ThanatosDMC2995d ago (Edited 2995d ago )

I threw my batarang like a machine gun (tap L1 repeatedly). Too bad it can only stun enemies. Sucks that Batman's a wuss here. He was more brutal (blood and gore) and even more jacked up with steroids in the comics.

JL2995d ago

This game was already day one for me, but I have to say, I'm even more excited about it after that demo (just finished it up and pretty much loved it). This is a Batman game done right. I like that. I can see how the demo might be a bit off putting for some though as I can see the "simple" comments and understand them. However from what I can tell, you'll 'upgrade' over the course of the game (or they just plain took alot of stuff out for the demo) so it should add more to it. Plays great though. I love it. And I'm really fond of the whole stealth/detective focus. Can't wait for August 25th.

yes it is one of the best batman .But for me its boring..its going to get a 7/10 for sure

Typical-Guy2995d ago

Exactly , the game is good , but not that GOOD.

In the end it's still a DEMO.

MiloGarret2995d ago (Edited 2995d ago )

T'was quite fun. Maybebuy.

The only thing I really disliked was how close the camera was when Bat walks, seems perfect when you're crouching as it zooms out quite a bit. Devs, add an option for the camera zoom!

Or maybe there is one and I just missed it..?

DexTh052995d ago

At first I didnt like the camera so close to him as he walks but I didnt mind it cuz it seems to zoom out at the right times..

JL2995d ago

Yes! That was actually my first complaint was the camera position when he's just walking along. I think I can eventually get use to that though as it doesn't seem to interfere too much, because, like Dex said, it's very good about getting in the right position when you need it to.

willie322995d ago

I was afraid to get my hopes up too high for this game. This is the first time in a long time that I played a demo of a game and was instantly sold on buying it. The best part about this game is how well it controls. They are quite responsive and easy to use. I love how easy the grappler is to use on the fly. I wanted to play more of this game so bad.

Silly gameAr2995d ago

Have to say it was better then I thought it was going to be. Played through It once, and then a second time. It wasn't really on my radar until i played the demo, now I'll be one of the first in line for the game.
