    Is the stealth better than Splinter Cell?

    @ 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

    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..

    @ Pr0fesserCha0s: how would you know that if you haven't played the game through to completion.

    I've actually had the CE on pre-order from Amazon as soon as it was announced. I am now strongly considering paying for release day delivery. It's only $6... reCaptch: unhorses Now

    phhhhhhffffffttttttt... Spider-Man? How dare you mention his name on a page dedicated to the Batman? Begone, heathen! Seriously though, ultimate spider-man video game was the last good one, and spiderman 3 failed... sorry dude.

    I didn't mean it was wrong for the Brits to review it, but comics (other than Watchmen and V for Vendetta) seem so American to me, it just seemed sort of unusual to me to have a British review of it. And the British review style seems a little more constrained and organized than the Americans' style, in my eyes. Good review, though, I may pick up the game if I run out of games next year (which seems almost impossible, with the lineup for the next half year or so.)
