Yes finally, the demo is now available on the PS Store in EU.
This is the shortest demo that you will ever play. Is only 5 minutes long but a hell lot of fun.
Impressions and Tips
Man impressions are coming in already whiles other people are struggling to get the download.
Damn!, I'm glad ps3 does have blu-ray. I can see it now, every 35 min or so: "insert disk X"
So what, is it going to self destruct after being played?
Downloading it at work from remote play on PSP :). This is going to be the longest day of work ever :(, I can't wait to get home.

begging for bubbles in every post.. If you make decent comments instead of running your mouth in Xbox 360 threasds like a fanboy you might actually keep what you get.

Hey Dude, I had to stay up to 3am for this.
Dammit 30% Has some bastard stopped time on me? Anyone see a little Japanese guy with a sword?
i don't usually comment here but i was wondering if any of you know if there was any other way to get this demo i only have dial-up and obviously can't access the playstation store with it and i would really like to get my hands on this demo
afaik no, only thing thats allowed from mem sticks is vids and music
and dl it there.
maybe by memory stick 2gb
because the demo 996mb
sorry i dont think its going 2 work
Okay this is by far the best demo out there...the play element is not button bashing as stated by the reviewers but its timed skill lol if you guys know what I mean, it feels really smooth and very accurate, damn love the counters...plays different then GoW but in a goodway lol now back to it again
btw Nariko is hot lol
*sheng long* lol dw u get your playtime
Update: cinematics are right on...graphically its pure smooth...you can see them being alive...mmmm Nariko...more to come and trust me if you guys play the demo you will think it is the best game out there! (not a fanboy)
65%, c'mon internet!
i gotta be at work in 1hr.. not gonna be able to play until tonight
To the guy who only has dial-up. Are you Serious? If so your screwed unless you can get Sony to send you a demo disc. I will download the demo when I get off of work today.
Can someone post an objective review, don't be all fanboyish with your it's the best game ever
Its awesome, fighting moves rock! The different stances are crazy!
Pure ball chopping looks sick. Graphics are stunning! OMG the music is great! Its actually pretty hard, the enemies block very well as well.
but short as hell ... :(
about 15 minutes gameplay ... or less. actually u faster u kill the faster u end the demo. :)
but look, a cut scene and about 10 minutes gameplay ... = 1 GB ... bluray ftw!
well it ended so fast thats because its pure fun and pure godness...and voice acting spot on
well im off to play more haha
combos are sick...looks like there be alot of combos in the final game
Nariko is sexc haha
on the westcoast in america.i'll give my non button mashing impressions later.can't wait.
button mashers need not apply.
getting use to a neutral block took a little time but the counter system seems like its great for the game which was more apparent the 2nd time i played it. Demo a bit short with a couple bugs with the sound. Graphics look gorgeous and movement is fluid. Im going back in to learn more. l8r
BOI: GOOD,AVERAGE,INCREDIBLE WHAT THE DEAL
Graphics my friend are incredible beautifully done.
its incredible, amazing...you can see the backgrounds and all, details are incredible,when the cam switched to far view its amazing... smooth that what you expect from a AAA title and safe to say this if it all goes well can move systems
Its a buy from day 1 for any ps3 owners and wanab ps3 owners
no button bashing or you die...need skills like how you play Tekken
the counter system is a blast, you can see different kind of counters not just 1 or 2
you can grab objects or enemies and throw...alot of moves indeed
blocking system to me is perfect because you can always counter which is very impressive...now i understand why they put that blocking system in...very precise but I don't block just counter
alot of deadly moves from attack,counter,chokes ect you get the feeling of killing off badguys...man I feel sori for the badguys lol
you can pick up dead enemies or weapons and throw them
The jump button not needed...you get what i mean when you guys play the demo, it will not be missed
and 1 last time Nariko looks hot in the art of the menu screen lol
i need bubbles guys please
It was very short (don't remember any demo as short as this) but it was great. I can understand how limited this game would be on Xbox 360 when just 5 mins of playtime (with all it's environments) takes up 1 gigabyte.
I liked it but it isn't really my gengre, if you look games like this then go ahead and download it, I'm sure you won't be dissapointed :).
My only complaint is the blocking system. I'm used to manual blocking like in GoW, but I guess it just takes time getting used to. Well, I'm off to go play it again...Definitely gonna pick this game up when it comes out.
God of War had blocking? ROFL...this i never knew. HAHA i don't think i ever blocked in that game. No wonder them shrieking medusas used to pwn me so often.
It looks fantastic, better then NGS. (Which I own) After you fight guys on the rock top, you jump down and fight a butch of guys below, after that the demo is over. In have a 720p (also 1080i) HDTV and it looks crisp, clean, and just ugh great lol. Again I wish it wasnt so short, but theres alot of combos to try so going back and beating up the same guys again isnt a big deal. Its a demo, we've been spoiled by the other ps3 demos, sony knows they dont have to try to "sell" this game. They know everyone wants it. (hell its the reason I got my ps3)in janurary(thinking it was coming out in march) lol. But anyway the demo, Its a teaser plain and simple. Which is ok, cause now I just want to get the game even more :P
The game look insant beautiful on my new Sammy M86. I must say it is truly beautiful. I love the counterattack and the combo. And damn..she is HOT! Wish my gal can look like that :)
hey guys just want to ask if Nariko's hair looks better when playing on HDTV than when watching A VIDEO?
One final sneaky tip: don’t kill the axeman during the opening hero sequence (i.e. miss the final SQUARE press) as you slide down the ropes. This’ll give you a chance to see what it’s like fighting a tougher character!
oh [email protected] Sound`s like you [email protected]
Fist of all Wow. i got stunned by the pretty Graphics. and it was so smooth running. and first you jump on the big rope and need to press diffrent buttons to sussceed. after that your on a platform fighting. its hard in the begning but when you learn the blocking system. the fighting is like and All crazy Cinematic witch is a good thing. after that you jump of a falling rock. and fight a bunsh of enemies. Really this is the Best demo i have played the experiance is rich with entertaiment. the only thing thats bad is the sound sometimes but thats cause its a demo i hope but the rest is Amazing
Graphic: 10/10 Gameplay9.5/10 Sound 8.5/10 overall 9.5/10 Great Game AAA
EDIT: Wow i just found out another Awesome thing. you can change the language of the game!. i live in norway and i took on norwegian. and Everyone one in the game Speaks Norwegian now!! Awesomess. ive never seen that in any other game!!
Day One purchase in my opinion.
Heres a quick and dirty video I shot of the first half of the demo. Can hear me clacking the sixaxis buttons pretty bad cos of the cammed audio lol. Figured I'd share this for anyone still at work etc ;)
Not bad for a beginner,at least you pulled off a combo kill lol!
hope you post the complete demo after you get use to the fighting and learn some combos i`ll check your youtube video account later! <wcngm43>
awesome game,love the counters but its just too short...ninja theory theres nothing to be scared of we love the game man.
are you ppl nuts. I must say i am very very very dissapointed in Ninja theory. The gameplay is top notch i like the fighting combat system kepes the variation and all that but that demo was too damn short. Like rediculously short. Officially the shortest demo out on psn. There is no part of that demo i havnt seen played a thousand times i mean common ninja theory get serious. The impression left on me off this game dosent make me want to buy this game anymore than i wanted to in the first place so my overall demo impression is, it simply didnt hit the home run i expected. Probably because of the length. Quite frankly i just didnt see enough especially enough of sumthin new to truly appreciate the game. I am not saying the game will be bad i am just sayin the demo wasnt much of a demo
Homie you need to relax that's why they call it a "DEMO"... I think EVERYONE loved it besides you, just because its short dosn't mean it ain't a hot "DEMO"...
Go enjoy it and quit tripin' about how short it is, least you're playing it =[ i'm at work and can't wait to go home and DL/PLAY it =D
somarus so what if the demo is short that doesnt stop me and other people from enjoying it so your saying your dissapointed because the game demo is short, so what, atleast you got to play it and remember its just a demo!
