    you dont even get to play the opening level, you get a taste of the combat, as you progress through the game you unlock new moves and gadgets and abilities, but to dog the intro level for being too easy is a tad much. that liek playing the intro level of deus ex and complaining the training level was too easy.

    It is super easy, but making a demo too hard is a sure way to put people off, so think they got the difficulty right, and kept it fun, it will surely get alot more difficult as you progress.

    Have to say, its the most old school fun i've had on a game in ages :)

    Not exactly, as combat just consists of spamming attack, so regardless of getting more combos, or even making the enemies more difficult, the combat is just stupid IMO. When I say it's too easy, I don't simply mean difficulty, but the fact that batman does everything automatically when you spam attack.

    Why not make a combat system like a traditional fighting game, real combos to learn, actual blocking, multiple attacks, guess they think the average tard will go into stupid mode and complain about it being too hard.

    well we will see when the game is out how it is. you are a super hero, be kinda dumb if trash could kick your ass, its the boss fights and later trash levels that will make or break the actual combat, never mind that your suit from what i read takes damage as you get beat up and would make sense if you lost armor as your suit and cape got trashed, according to the one preview i read when you cape gets damaged your glide is less effective etc, so fighting effectively and efficiently would be key to getting along in the later stages of the game.

    unlike xmen wolveriene where you just healed up no matter how recklessly you played as long as you did not die. so it made not a dif how effective you were outside of taking enough damage to get killed. plus in that game it was not like trash mobs were all that difficult you could take on scores at once, and the boss fights were extremely repetitive, as well as the mini bosses.

    but i hardly think that the opening few rooms of the first level are hardly indicative of the entire games play or how you will fare when you got rooms full of guys with guns try and rambo that room in the demo you will find yourself taking tons of damage quickly and die if you do not book out. sure you should be able to get by mashing the attack button early on, but that not to say it will remain effective throughout the entire game.

    As I stated in my last post, regardless if it gets more challenging later, the combat system is still comprised of basically mashing a single button. The stealth parts seem slightly better, but judging from the demo and various preview videos, they still appear to be extremly simple, and nearly forced onto the player as "this is a stealth part, use the grapple!".

    Just finshed playing through for the 5th time, it really is an amazing piece of work.
    All settings on max including AA and Physx, it was really smooth. Using 190.56 drivers.
    Definitely the best looking unreal engine game.
    I really like the new combat system and the way it switches to a cinematic view when Batman kicks someone.
    The only complaint I have is that the cutscenes are pre-rendered.
    Would have been better if it was rendered in realtime as the download size may have been smaller.
    But overall a fantastic game, will definitely be buying it.

    Batman should know how to avoid gunfire...
    at the end when you die from gunfire joker appears and says to get rid of you so you are not really dead but badly hurt... all those 50 kilos of body armor are really useless...

    So I knew this game was coming out, but didn't really care because I figured, "oh another stupid crappy super hero game".

    Well, I got bored yesterday and installed the demo, not realizing who the voice actors were going to be. As soon as Batman spoke, I was like "holy..."

    The game itself is very easy to play, but very entertaining as well. It's a very good casual gaming experience IMO. I just wish there were options for Co-op.

    I'm so disappointed you guys aren't raving about this game! I haven't had a chance to download it yet (computer issues) but I've read some really good reviews and the trailers look really good! I'm going to download it tonight on Playstation home, I hope that the game lives up to my expectations! Even though I'm already bummed out that you only get a plastic batarang in the CE =(
