    Has anyone tried this demo?

    Normally I'll play a demo for a few minutes and then turn it off, but this one kept me interested until the end.

    Anyone who has played inFamous will be familiar with the way the character handles. It's not 100% polished, but the demo was intense and a lot of fun. That's the way you make a demo.

    Terrible is relative, but I have a seriously short attention span. I spent 3 minutes on the Vanquish demo before thinking "Played this before" and turning it off. It's not that we haven't seen this before. It's just that story driven demos, where you want to see where it ends don't come along very often, and the infamous familiar controls made playing it almost second nature.

    I also like/dislike the "main character." You start not liking him, feeling sorry for him, then thinking, "what the hell, he might be alright."

    If you plan on playing it during lunch today, you should have started the download on Monday night, lol.

    I played it this past weekend and loved it.

    There may be some DMC reboot haterade spreading these days toward Ninja Theory, but I'm looking forward to playing this one. Will definitely buy this.

    EDIT: I wonder if this collector's edition is still going to come out? I didn't see it listed on Amazon UK's site. http://gamerinvestments.com/video-game-stocks/index.php/2010/08/26/namco-bandai-announces-exclusive-european-collectors-edition-of-enslaved/

    I saw that on video game board.
    I guess technically I should have said 'Dragon Ball' and not 'DBZ'.

    You know, the main character is 'Monkey', he has a staff, and it's based off Journey to the West.
    So it's a Dragon Ball ripoff -admit it. :)

    You took the words right outta my fingers. If this is like DBZ, why do I like it??

    He's a Monkey? I never got the impression he was a monkey in the demo. He's like a convict in a floating prison. No cloud riding, but from the video after the demo he does ride some enery shit over water, lol

    the game is based on the story that Monkey was also based on, the classic sixteenth century Chinese novel "Journey to the West".

    dunno about Dragons BallsZZZZZzzzzzzz.
