The Batman: Arkham Asylum demo released today on the Playstation Network and I eagerly downloaded this much anticipated title as soon as I could.
The demo seems good although stiff facial animations but overall seems like a good game and for a company like Eidos its amazing since they haven't done a decent game in ages. Fighting seems simple to do and hard to master. This game could be a revamp of the franchise which is a really good thing for Comic and hero style games looks like Wolverine made a good impresion.
fighting seems simple to do but hard to master? All you do is press square a couple of times, it is nothing to master. Its a good game though, if I see it for a good price I will get it.
What I've noticed with these comic book games, same as the movies, is that they're aiming for a more mature audience. I also think the fact Wolverine didn't follow the movie too closely and Batman Arkham Asylum isn't being rushed out to meet a movie deadline, has resulted in good comic book games especially now people realise crap movie games don't sell as well as they used to. Arkham Asylum really captures the mood of Batman so well, the timing to take out enemies one by one and avoid detection because you aren't invincible really sold me.
I'm pleased for Eidos. This isn't really my type of game, but i saw there was massive anticipation, and the store update was crap, so i went ahead and downloaded it yesterday. I played it earlier today and, apart from hating the camera, i really enjoyed it. It pushed me to preorder it anyway, which is what a demo should do. Like i said, pleased for Eidos, they haven't had a decent game in a while. Hopefully this brings in some money for them :D
Eidos made Battlestations: Pacific which is great too
I thought it was a mixed bag. The demo was very polish in certain areas and very generic looking with very bad textures. The gameplay is pretty easy also but I like some of the platforming stuff. I just hope they polish up the finish product more. Also it is very clear this game utilized the U3 engine.. sigh.
We'll get a good spiderman game...? AAAHHHH HA HA HA HA HA Ow wow. woooh. I got carried away there for a minute.
I just downloaded the demo on live. I like it. I might buy the full game. edit: 2disagrees really? LMAO!
Wow N4G really hates you, I see massive disagrees on each of your posts. Don't let it bother you though.
But Graphically it was not up to my High(PS3)Standards!!! ;-D When i saw that 'Unreal' Logo at the start of the Demo i thought 'Oh Dear, xBox 360 SH*T Graphics i bet' and i was right. Anyway for some reason the 'Unreal Engine' games seem to give me bad Headaches after playing them for a while, god knows why??? Oh well...if your a Batman Fan buy it;)
"The demo is short, it took me about 30 – 40 minutes to complete" LOL How much of a game do you want in a demo?
I know, right? It's a single player game - was he expecting to get at least one chapter of the game or something? I think the demo was great - it gave us the basics of the game (hand-to-hand combat, detective work, and sneaking gameplay). This is what made me happy about my purchase because I actually got to experience just a minimal amount enough of everything I hoped the game would be.
I was playing the demo and it looks amazing. I played a challenge demo at Gamestop and the characters textures looked more detailed than in the new demo, I noticed than stuff like the body hair is almost invisible in the new demo but the anatomy of the characters looks more realistic now, I'm wondering if there are the same characters.
Game has tremendous graphics, very good looking textures and all that but the gameplay is kinda meh really, all brawling and sneaking it just doesn't have excitement.
will come from the boss battles.
Good that the demo is turning out well. I was worried when they delayed the game that it was trouble and whenever Eidos is involved you never know what could happen. Incidentally, I'm playing TR:Underworld another Eidos game and despite its flaws, it is an enjoyable game.
I'm seriously impressed by the demo ...i still hate this damn engine but the game is turning out to be really good
I thought the demo was great. I loved the stuff you could do (the inverted takedown and the glide kick) the darkness of the game leads to a real batman feeling of in the shadows. I now can't wait for this game!
at that picture in the article, makes me think. Someone should do a Riddick vs Batman comic.
YES! Batman Vs Riddick Would KICK ASS
the game was good, not great but the trailer at the end and the story made me feel like i have to buy this game
