    I hope you're right. I read a couple early reviews that weren't favorable, however MetaCritics (whoever they are) gave it 90/100. So maybe the reviews I read were garbage.

    if they complained that it is a lot of mashing buttons then they should be discarded. I do not understand this complaint. God of War is a bunch of mashing buttons and that game is AWESOME!

    agreed, but Dynasty Warriors are button mashers and they are not (well the first ones were okay but now that they are on 6x10^5 they are not good anymore)

    I think playing one Dynasty Warrior game is pretty fun.

    My problem with Dynasty Warrior is that if you played one, you played them all.

    Devils May Cry is pretty funny and that is pretty much a button masher.

    There are good button mashers and bad button mashers. I just do not believe that being a butotn masher makes a game bad.

    My brief take-

    Solid demo...
    Didn't like how gargoyles were tossed randomly inside the asylum just so that you could swing to and from them.
    Graphic style is cool in my book..Batman looks awesome
    The game seems like it could get extremely repetitive though ... I hate games like that.

    Looks like a solid weekend rent.

    I'm have a PS3 and I'm bitter about God of War. I by one to find out after I bought it, Sony decided to remove backwards comp in the model I picked. It isn't the only reason I bought the thing but was part of the appeal. BASTARDS!!! :tantrum:

    Looking forward to Arkam though.

    i think the people who complain about the game are the people who only played the hand to hand combat stuff. Cause the combat system is easy, generic, and a little boring.

    ...BUTTTTTTT, swinging around on the statues, taking out the guards from the ceiling, and sneaking around them while picking them off one by one, now that was kick ***.

    I played the demo today, and I have to have this game. I hate stealth games, but this one adds depth to the stealth game,while still being fun. I love the strike-counter graphics. Great demo.

    360 for me... only because FREE > ******

    And, like everything else DLC, I'm sure the Joker stuff will eventually come over.

    I played the demo. Kick *** game. Loved taking out the guards one by one. My thing was to hang a guard on the gargoyle. Then when all of the other guards rush over to see what happened, I attack the one douchebag that's alone.
    And, I didn't know you can play as the joker. Can someone tell me how?

    I have played the demo quite a few times now and this game is unbelievable. I wish I had the money to throw at this on the 25th, but I might have to wait.

    The combat is basic in the demo, but it will get much more intricate as the game moves forward (according to the reviews). The stealth on the other hand is nasty right off the bat. I love hanging a guy and cutting him down with a batarang when the other guys walk under him. I take them out one by one and when the last guy starts freakin out I mess with him and take him out when he runs screaming into the control room by crashing through the glass.

    I f***in love this game already.
