I was very fortunate to be at my local Best Buy during lunch today and found that they had a 360 and PS3 kiosk setup with Batman Arkham Asylum playable.
Now the demo they had up did not allow you to play the story portion of the game. All that was selectable was the Challenge mode where wave after wave of street thugs come out and try to bash you in, so I gave it a go. I have to say first impressions I am impressed with how it handles. Now here is the tricky part not that its bad but as you press the attack button depending on the direction you point at Batman will strike at the opponent. So if I am surrounded by a group lets say and I start swinging in the middle of a combo I go from the next guy to the next guy. It felt like the targeting system from Too Human but better.
I kept hearing the voice of Joker after every round give his opinion of that round only to say the next round is going to get harder. I made it just to the 6th round when the opponents looked different, some guys had shirts other wore hoodies.
There are some slow motion effects mostly when its the last guy standing and its a finishing blow.
Its a decent brawl I did not get a chance to try the stealth aspect seeing as how Batman took on these guys in just a room surrounded by electricity. It a fun game the only issue I had is that I can see myself get tired of this game very fast if this is what it offers again this is just a demo of the challenge mode so when the full game comes out maybe there is more to it.
