Okay so i just spent the past 4 hours at my local gamestop playing the batman demo! It was quite the experience seeing how anxious I've been to get my hands on it.

Right when I started the game, I was blown away by the phenomenal job that they did with creating batman! The way his cape sits on the floor when he's standing and when it swiftly flutters during combat was simply beautiful. Speaking of beautiful... the thugs that you battle are definitely NOT! But in essence, they did an amazing job with making them look extremely scary and horrific. The attention to detail was incredible and the surrounding atmosphere sets the mood perfectly.

But besides how amazing the game looks, the gameplay was even better! Controlling the Dark Knight has never been so much fun! The demo throws you into the fray of battle and you quickly learn the simple controls. Even though they are simple controls that are easy to pick up within minutes, it's a combat system that will take many hours to truly master.

Bouncing back and forth between enemies is super cool and extremely satisfying. Punching the guy in front of you, then jumping over him to put yourself in the middle of all the badies, you put your boot to an ugly black thug's face while catching the enemy's foot behind you for a counter, then right after countering you chuck a batarang behind you at a thug who was aiming a gun at you, then you glide towards a scared henchman whose leg you pull into the air bringing him to the ground, then completely separating his knee from the rest of his body.

so ya... Batsy's a Bad *** Mutha F%#KER!!!

but anyways, if you haven't played this demo, you must!! If you're truly as anxious as I am about this game (which isn't possible btw...) you'll call up your local gamestop or walmart and see if they have it!

The true aspect of this game that I'm the most excited about tho is the stealth factor. Idk... hanging from a ceiling and swooping down to pick up a helpless thug sounds pretty exciting to me!

By the way... if anyone goes and plays the demo, take a picture of your high score and post it!!! Beat mine of 35000!!

Here's the info I have on the B: AA Demo, I have written this in another thread thats why it might be a bit reading it right now but, enjoy.

I found a site saying that there is a demo coming out in may in 2 different batman symbols, heres the link

The first symbol is made from words saying "coming in may"

then there is a normal batman symbol

then another symbol made of words saying "download the demo"

not to be an ***, but i think you guys in the UK get the actual game like a week or two before us across the pond. we may get a head start before you guys, but you get the prize first. I'm jealous of YOU guys actually. ;)
