Wow, that actually looks like it could be a pretty revolutionary game.  Graphics look nice too.

Needs more blood.

I couldn't help but feel the controls for doing all that came across a tad clunky?

Still have high hopes for the game and since this is probably the first hands on gameplay footage, I'll let it pass lol.

I didn't get that impression. Does looks like it's a Quicktime Event-fest, though. If there's as much strategy as advertised, I won't mind.

I'm slightly irritated how many peoples' only comments are "No blood wtf >:[" . Yeah, it would make sense to have blood, and I'm sure they'll add it, but seriously, if this game hit shelves with minimal to no blood, but played like a dream, I don't think I'd really care that I'm not getting glorious arterial spray every time I punch someone in the face.

From what I understand the combat is on a system where combinations of moves are used. And sometimes you get a sort of Assassin's Creed moment where you go into a slow-mo action shot as you deliver the fatal / fight ending blow. I haven't heard anything about QTE's though.

That looked pretty damn cool.

Wow, I saw a lot of stuff that was really interesting in that demo. When he looked at a specific enemy, it showed his mood and his heartbeat? That's pretty cool to me. I like the open-ended gameplay, you can deal with a situation in so many ways. This demo made me pretty excited for this game.

Finally took some time to watch this demo. It looks magnificent. Definitely looks like it has really great potential. But looks can be deceiving. The thing that's getting me most hyped about the game is it really looks like it makes you feel like Batman. The stealth mechanics looks good. I can't wait to get my hands on this.

looks awesome 

#17 Posted by Karmum (11509 posts) -

Still not that optimistic about this game, but my interest has yet to peak.

#18 Posted by Pie (6935 posts) -

Im extremely pleased they've gone with the stealth and strategy way of making batman instead of punch dude in face way.

#19 Posted by JoelTGM (5591 posts) -

what the hell, I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm impressed.  That makes me really want to play the game.  Also, I love the heavy look of batman and the way he moves.

That's some impressive footage to be sure, but I'm worried that the level designs won't play to the game's strengths or be too linear. That said, I'm still optimistic and am hoping for a demo.

I think it looks quite impressive.

#22 Posted by suneku (2997 posts) -

An extended director's cut of this video was released. Gives it a more in-depth look. Definitely worth watching.

embedding isn't working right

This definitely looks interesting. I agree, it seems like it may have clunky controls, but perhaps it could just be a learning curve that will take time to get used to.

Lol, it embeds to an Atari video. :P

Wow, that looks sick. Hopefully the full game can match what is shown here

The only thing I could think during that entire video...

Also, people...that demo...still makes me feel like Batman and Sam Fisher have a bit too much in common...

The game will be the best Batman game ever made...and that's not saying much.  I'm calling it:  mediocre.

Just tons of context-sensitive button hits that any retarded monkey can figure out...

Just saw Sessler's hands on video from GDC. It's a bit old so you might've seen it but he gives a pretty good opinion of the game, and some neat info I didn't know... like how the art came from Jim Lee's Wildstorm company. This makes it so much more awesome because he's one of the best artists to draw Batman, or in general.
