i pre ordered this game today after playing the AWESOME demo i loved it... but sadly i and everybody else have to wait 5 more days : ( lol
I carefully designed an adamantium house for games like this. I want no interruptions from no1! I need no windows and I dont care about the trees, grass, birds and stars.
issizots, ivy calls the plant to cover herself, you know as she can control plants. so she just takes huge plant and uses it as weapon. no big deal and i think its very true to the storys of bat vs ivy. better than just running around and tossing acorns at your ass :D
@ lukasdot The demo is free, it's always free, just goto "Downloads" section and its there for download
Just played the demo at 1280x1024 (true HD) with everything maxed out. If you think there's ANY superhero games you should buy. THIS IS IT!!! Intense fun, LOVED IT, and CAN'T WAIT!!!
[continued..] only thing i'm not feeling about this game is the fact that poison ivy gets ate by a huge plant and battles batz and it totally takes away the rush you get originally if it would be her controlling the plant instead of being devoured by it. does it vomit her up after batz kicks her butt? why not keep it original like the rest of the villians, with a huge plant like that poison ivy just seems abscent from the picture when you're fighting her/it/etc. Also the demo is awesome, a BITTT short though for a demo, but i understand that even a minute more of the story revealed could spoil alot and no developer wants to give the story away in the demo, especially being it's a big mystery except the fact that joker wants dr youngs notes(for some reason) and batman does aswell to solve whatever is going on.
But i will enjoy finding out the story, I'll just play the demo about 1000 more times until I get my PS3 back from repair and when the game is released. I also wonder being Nvidia is reenableing PhysX on PS3 again, I wonder if Eidos will patch the PhysX in when it is reenabled. The ps3 i firmly believe could easily match the PC version if/when physX is enabled(if it is for this game). All in all i'm still gritting my teeth thinking and wondering HOW am i ever going to do a perfect combo doing all batmans moves to get the perfect combo trophy, now that'll be hard. I pulled off a 26x combo at gamestop on the challenge room demo on expert, ironically on easy i did worse lol. also you should be more specific on which demo version you want UrRoyalBlacknes because all you have to do is put in a search on the internet for the demo for PC and for PS3 it's on the PSN as any demo is. :)
Chi2ggz, almost every batman movie/animation he has more life to him than just standing like Ken doll :D but like i said, those are just things that bothered me but not enough to not buy this game :)
i played the demo, and i want is a lot. payday on release day for me, so im going straight to my local game retailer :D Shadow complex should keep me going till this is released :P
@graavigala I'm not sure which batman you used to watch, but I dont remember him ever hopping around or even putting up a guard when not hitting people. The way he stands there stays true to the character.
supernaught360, is there something wrong to want great game to be even better? ;) I just would want little more life into bats, and pointing him to target he speaks doesnt make him look into target, he still looks over yonder, and there are lots of games where character you control looks at target he speaks, so why not on this one too? and i didnt mean the animation AFTER battle, i ment during battle. when you stop tapping attack button Batman just stands there like nothing was happening around him, that is what bothered me. and the running animation is crap. try runnin like that for a while and you see how wrong it is :D and i didnt whine about cape, hell that alone is the reason to buy the game! :D im just being perfectionist, not OCD ;)
@graavigala ? If you want Bats to look at the people he's interacting with: POINT him towards them. Personally, I like this level of control over a character. Michael Keatons Batman walked and behaved much the same way - hands always at his sides, stoic, and intimidating. Also, he "cracks" his knuckles often after he finishes off some goons - very cool. The running animation?? LOL. The flow of the cape alone when he ATHLETICALLY runs is enough to make anyone gawk with glee. Methinks you have an obsessive compulsive disorder.
the demo was great and if the full game is same as that then this will be great game. BUT there were few things that felt unfinished. Batman was lifeles, he just stand there and didnt do anything. Even when he talked to someone he just watched into distance and showed no life at all, and yes i know he is the mystery etc etc but he could atleast look at the talker. combat animation was great but when not hitting Batty was just standing there, again lifeless. I would have hoped for little off-combat animation other than just standing while still in combat. Running animation looked stupid, just play the demo and look how Batman runs and you will see it too. No selfrespecting superhero should run like that. but still, this is one game that will find its place to my home
@MischiefmAker thanks for the heads-up. I have been eagerly anticipating this game since I last heard about it and was sad when it got delayed but this game comes out two weeks before my birthday so now it can be used as a birthday gift just wish I had more time to play it before I got back to university. And yes I beleive there are only two riddler-trophies. My first play through I really tried to explore the place and get into many ducts to find others.
Just played the 360 demo of this game, and I have to say I wasn't prepared for the sheer technical polish, or the TLC with which the 70 year Batman mythos is packaged in such a modern, meticulously rendered work of art. It's a perfect marriage of the best of the Dark Knights many incarnations, with dashes of Frank Millers The Dark Knight, Alan Moores The Killing Joke, Grant Morrisons Arkham Asylum, and Even the superlative Animated Series, among others. This is Unreal Tech at it's best, and the re-imagining of some the popular characters is nothing short of awe inspiring - especially for Batman super-fans like myself. I can't wait to dig in, and I predict that this game will be 2009s Bioshock in regard to it's financial, critical and pop-cultural success. If you're in, UP THE BAT!!!!!
@RajBauer I know of at least one Walmart that still has the challenge room demo on its PS3, so the store demo is still around if you wanna see more variety in combat (it's a demo of the first challenge room with 2 difficulty settings). Also, anybody else find the 2 (assuming there's only 2) Riddler trophies in the downloaded demo? :D
Just played the demo on the PS3 and I was not disappointed. Finally, a good that comes out earlier than everyone else!!!!
I thought the demo was good too but was sad that it was so short. I hope that the game is long though. In one of the videos Sefton Hill said with a video game they could have 12-15 hrs so I hope it is that long. i really hope Mr.Freeze and Riddler are in it as well as the Penguin. I basically want all the main villains. From the trailer I see that there seem to be a lot of mutants that look like they will be good bad guys but i want the real villains as well. I wish teh combat was a little harder than pushing square repeatedly and then triangle when there is a blue thing above the thugs head. Maybe soem other combos. I do enjoy the alst section of the demo where you pick off the thugs because they are so scared and it makes you feel awesome.
the demo is awesome, i just keep playing it over and over!! cant wait for the game, think i may have to take a week off work to play it!!!
I played the demo and now I AM BATMAN!!!!! LOL!!! no but seriously this game kicks ass. im glad they kept pushing the release date back so that when it does come out it will be perfect.
i just downloaded the demo n omg is freaking great love it thank god a good batman game at last, but eidos please bring back lok to.
I PLAYED THE DEMO OMFG THIS GAME IS F**KIN SiiiiCK GAMESPOT BETTER GIVE THIS SHYT NO LESS THEN A 9 IT WOULD B A 10 IF IT HAD CO-OP (IMAGINE BATMAN & ROBIN OMG)
OK, the demo is so sick im pre-ordering this game now because im so pumped for this game. this is batman the way he was ment to be played man, superb just superb
I've played the demo several times now, and when I beat a certain part of it I usually just hit the start button and restart the last checkpoint so it lasts longer! This game is TONS O FUN! :D
