    What did you guys think of this? I thought it was alright, and definitely has some potential. Seems like a great game to rent for sure.

    Was alright, but really too short to get any decent impression of it. Ill definitely check it out, I cant really see it blowing me away though.

    :werd: I feel the same, it seemed cool but was too short to get a good sense of it. I'll give it a rent when it's released. :hs:

    yeah because the dog info guy made a thread for each separate demo. But the demo was great, can't wait for the game.

    Pros:
    Visuals
    Art Style
    fucking Mark Hamill AND Kevin Conroy!

    Cons:
    No jumping?
    gargoyles everywhere inside the asylum. . .isn't this a crazy hospital?
    over the shoulder third person was kinda weird

    overall:
    will probably buy.

    To me it felt like a poor mans metal gear solid with limited options. To view should have been third person...instead its an obstructed TPS/OTS weird and annoying at times. I dont like how you cant jump or climb

    The crazys in the hospital all look the same and they are all roided up juice heads...how creative

    The charater profiles are pretty cool and it looks like a good rent at blockbuster on a rainy day.

    im all about run and gun, so I think this demo sucks. I want to give it another shot but I need to figure out a way to take out those three guards after you kick the grate off the vent shaft lol.

    I've tried it twice and failed so I played something else lol

    Tons of fun. If it weren't for the fact that I know I'll only play it once, I would buy it.

    Fuck it. I'll buy it. Maybe I'll surprise myself. I wasn't that impressed with it, but then again nothing else is out right now.

    What the fail, you just sneak behind each and silenty kill them. :hsugh:

    I don't know what to do when you get spotted though, I tried dodging and other stuff but after a bulet or two I die. Why can't batman do anything? :wtc:

    Seemed pretty fun, but i think it will get boring quickly. The view is horrible and learning about character every 5 minutes ruined the flow of the game

    i was pretty stoked with the demo.. i dont think they revealed all the fun shit. plus, i noticed that they allowed you to do the button presses a lot faster than when they show up on the screen, which makes it more fun.
