I've played through three demos in the last two days and this has given me a false sense of accomplishment. I haven't been finishing many games lately. And, those games that I have finished left me with an empty feeling (ex: 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand). I played Enslaved the other day and was really taken with the game mechanics and story of that game. Last night I played through the Darksiders demo, which was really long. I really felt a sense of accomplishment after my one hour playthrough of Darksiders. Finally, I just finished the new Castlevania demo on PS3. I found this game pretty bland.
After playing trough Darksiders, Dante's Inferno, and the new Castlevania demo on PS3, I have realized that this GoW apeing is getting a little out of control. I think that this style change is a good restart for the 3D Castlevania franchise. But, because I am playing Dante's and GoW on PS3 this new Castlevania just seemed like a bland copy. I think that this reboot is much better than the other 3D incarnations of Castlevania.
Playing these demos has given me that same feeling of satisfaction when I finish a full game. Its nice to finish something, no matter how small.
