    I actually had to force myself to delete the demo off my Xbox because I'd gotten so addicted to it, I couldn't stop replaying it, but every time I got to the end, I'd get depressed. I'll tell you, tho', even tho' that demo is short, there's a LOT of depth to it. A couple little Riddler trophies, some really fun ways to take out your foes, even with just a bat-a-rang and a grappling hook. I used to not like stealth games too much (BG&E and Riddick are exceptions), but if this is the new direction other games start to take, I may start to change my mind - that new Splinter Cell has been catching my eye as of late as well..

    @ gatornation1254 I've played the demo 27 times each in a diffrent way winning, played the game and finished it on easy and currently playing normal, i got it early cuz waited out at the shop in a tent, the guy said shipment camed early and sold it to me at 2:00 AM cuz he wanted me to go home xDxDxD and there that is why it should get a perfect 10 and its in my opinion so :P

    Is the stealth better than Splinter Cell?

    professer chaos is a lucky person getting to buy the game before the rest of the gaming world

    ... a 9? You have got to be kidding. AA is the best Comic book game yet. Its Amazing. It Deserves a 10

    Demo was good but I'm not really a fan of Batman, although the campness of the old TV series was great.

    It's a pretty distant camera angle in the Free Flow video demo. I wonder if you can see all that much...

    Are you serious?! This is an amazing game and you only give it a 9! The same thing happened with Fallout 3. Then you give GTA: Chinatown Wars a f*cking 10! You guys have abseloutely no idea when you see a good game!

  • OldschoolAL - August 24, 2009 10:20 a.m.

    Wow, i already knew it was going to be good but i'm begining to drool in anticipation! Been playing Games for a long time and a Big batman fan, this is long overdue!

    The only thing I have to complain about is the lack of a PS3 review. If a game has extra content on a system, then I'd expect you guys to review that extra content...

    Lol, Wolf007's post reminded me of this Penny Arcade comic -
  • Maxstats69 - August 25, 2009 7:20 a.m.

    Nice, I was hoping this wasn't just going to be another game hyped up and previewed for a year only to let fans down in the end. I'm happy to see it lived up to the hype. Many games now-a-days don't do that....
