    Pr0fesserCha0s: Best comment ever. And to be honest with you, the "9 or 10?" decision was a genuinely hard one, but the stuff I mentioned in the penultimate paragraph gave me no choice but to knock it down.

    Holy super review batman! I must get my hands on this! Very well done Mr.Houghton, very well done indeed!

    Oh and for anyone in Canada and possibly every where else, if you pre-order it at EB games and pick it up on release day then you get it for like $40 instead of $60 :D That sounded like an ad haha :P

    The demo didn't really make me want to buy it, but it didn't put me off much, either. It's good to see reviews a little while before the game comes out, but it seems odd to me to see the Brits reviewing an American institution like Batman.

    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....

    Lol, Wolf007's post reminded me of this Penny Arcade comic -

    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...
  • 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!

    F batman hes stupid i played the demo it sucked
  • Wolf007 - August 23, 2009 3:12 p.m.

    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!

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

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