"best stealth game ever made"
metal gear anyone?

Idk, I was having trouble in the demo being stealthy. It become somewhat annoying because I kept dying. Maybe the demo isn't representative of the whole game.

This is really a odd ball. I didn't expect that much rave review.

Kleptic5154d ago

yeah I don't know either...demo wise its not even close to the 'best stealth/action game ever made'...as hand to hand batman is ridiculously powerful...which is great...but the stealth sequences seem pretty forced, simply because batman by nature does not use 'real' weapons...

and I wasn't buying the detective mode very much...either way...great game, definitely will play through it one way or another...but I guess I just prefer MGS's approach to stealth where its necessary at times, and not at others...and the choice is sort of yours in all but boss fights...this game is more that you HAVE to be stealth for large portions, and HAVE to be aggressive in others...and that there really isn't much of a gray area to that...again, thats based on a demo...so i really don't know, its just thats what it seemed like gameplay mechanic wise...to each their own...

DonCorneo5154d ago

even the reviewers admit that.. but for some reason no points were deducted for it.. it's a lot like tenchu, only this on is easier..

I didn't care about this game till i played the demo. I have the same exact thoughts about this one. Anyone that thinks its a rip off like Wolverine origins needs to try it.

Joker is now on the U.S. PSN store.

Definitely not. Great game? Absolutely! I loved the demo. It has a lot of variety between the free-flow combat and stealth action, which is excellent. I may not get this one just yet, considering I'm saving my money for 2010 where I'll need it the most. But sooner or later, I'll get around to this one for sure.

I'm sure R* knows the Nintendo Switch install base and probably dont really care to port over more R* games to the Nintendo Switch tho i gotta say playing GTA4 & RDR1 on the go on the Nintendo Switch would be dope

Knightofelemia446d ago

I would buy Lollipop Chainsaw, Alice Madness Returns, Enslaved, Splatter House, Brutal Legends, Dante's Inferno, and Dead Space for sure if they were ported to the Switch.

Mobis-New-Nest446d ago

Deus Ex Human Revolution would be a great title to The Holy Grail of All Consoles aka The Nintendo Switch*. Also Haze Remastered, Grand Theft Auto 4 and 5 Remastered, Silent Hill HD Collection, Max Payne 3 Remastered, Call of Duty World At War Remastered, The Orange Box Remastered, Halo Master Chief Collection, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 Remastered, Metal Gear Solid 4 Remastered, Afro Samurai Remastered, Demons Souls Remastered, Xmen Destiny Remastered, Jack and Daxter Collection, Def Jam Icon Remake, Folklore Remastered, Spiderman Edge of Time Remastered, Persona 5 remastered, the list goes on. (*Best Selling Console of All Time)

I wonder how many already have them.

gamefreaks365667d ago

Yeah, that's a good point. Still, if anyone missed out on them, this is a great deal.

Wow. That is so cheap, but I know I personally already have all the games in the list. haha. I guess I should have waited.
