    played through the demo a few times and I came away feeling underwhelmed.
    I felt the camera was a little tight, combat felt sluggish, switching in and out of "detective mode" felt labored.
    I have high hopes that this will be the best Batman branded game released, but if the demo is any indication, I see this thing getting ratings in the high 7's or lower 8's

    I heard the demo was pretty good. I haven't tried it myself yet.

    Demo was good, looks good on PS3 considering it is powered by U3.

    I had a lot of fun with it and I will be getting it.

    I actually liked the demo, and I had low expectations.

    I played it last night. Some of the graphics were very nice but, after playing inFamous where the environment is wide open, wasn't impressed.

    I'll give it another try.

    Yeah but Infamous is awesome. Just not a fair comparison :))

    My PS3 time is limited. I only play the best. ;)

    I've not even finished "Unchartered" yet.

    What game are you talking about? The one I'm playing is about a private yacht which the player moves from port to port trying to get it chartered for a three-hour tour.

    This is the hero...
