All that was CG right? I couldn't decide for some time if it was CG or live-action or some kind of a mix. :) It's only in the close-ups that it looks CG, otherwise even the lighting, and the shaky cam were VERY convincing! I bought the game almost four months ago and I still haven't played it. There are just so many other great games that are also in the queue. :(

Asylum's size was perfect. Big enough to play on, but small enough that I didn't spend the entire game running from one empty space to another. Every inch of it was filled with something. Now they've gone and made a generic sandbox game... Sad. Also, most of those graphics are live action.

@slaigo7 hehe i see your point, lol i had to google his name to remember who you were refering to but that comment was pretty much a line from that show when you read it.. I must retire to my room and dwell on that

I didn't even think it was possible to improve on the graphics of the last one!

I loved the first game way more than I thought I would, its on what I call my classics list as well as one of my top games. It sounds like Arkham City will top Arkham Asylum in ever way possible its going to be interesting to see what they can do.

Oh. my, god. Is this real or a game??? Man, if this is ingame, this is honestly the best looking game on the market.

Oh my God! It looks perfect! And real! He doesn't even look to point that up and shot to escape! Because he is Batman, and already known where to shot that damn thing!!

Sounds super awesome. Assassins Creed mixed with Batman and nice visual is a big win for me. Looking forward to it immensely.

all other superheroes are jealous of Batman. he has the best game, best movie and best animated series. how bad a$$ can batman get???

Never thought I would see the day when a good Batman game would come out, let alone a good enough game to warrant a sequel.

it looked like real footage with some cg make ups, i mean some parts of the people were too detailed to be cg...yet it s great

@ziyad888 ...yes go out more because there is CG outside, stupid idiot. This video showed a trailer or the in game video and is not a tech demo of the game.

@Tormentor-1000 I'm normally an advocate for co-op but I think in this games case it might actually ruin the experience maybe in a separate mode perhaps like in the Predator and combat rooms but not in the main game

This is definitely my most anticipated game of this year hopefully they'll actually let us see this demo at E3. This game looks to be alot less linear then the first game and that one was pretty open ended to begin with so looks as if this one will top it in every way. Did anyone here find the secret room in Batman AA that detailed Warden Sharps plan to open Arkham City which hinted at this game.

@Tormentor-1000 Co-op? one reason i like BAA is because it WASNT co-op, (having someone else slowing you down or slowing them down, would get annoying, real fast)

@Tormentor-1000 : LOL, co-op with whom? Robin? That would be fail indeed.

As long as you don't feel like you HAVE to play in detective vision the entire game like Arkahm Asylum, the game will be good.

wow, awesome cut scenes. Can't wait for this, AA was awesome and i have always been a massive Batman fan.

This cinematic is one of the best I've ever seen...I hope it's co-op this time around.

looking forward to this, AA was probably one of the best of 09 (not sure). Can't wait for this one

no gameplay? what an ahole,telling me to the face that he saw a demo and shows nothing of it cant wait for this, AA was a masterpiece and batman is simply the best super hero anyways

Bigger doesn't always mean better. Will it have as much as content as AA? Which was in development for a looong time. I realize they are not rebuilding the game and will be reusing assets but it's only been in development for less than two years and it's supposed to be a much bigger game.

Can't wait. Can we get a release date as tomorrow?

I hope they have some type of vechicle or something to get around the big city and batman have some parkour moves; It would make the game a lot more fun and adventures. Can't wait for the demo to come out and the game

Couldn't be more excited for this game. Played through the first one hard, and a bigger city and new attacks are welcome additions.
