    They put it up for download on the 360 yesterday(1,600 M$ pts), and I tried the trial version this morning. Controls aren't 100% tight, but seems to be a pretty decent game. Your standard run around and beat the snot out of everybody. Great graphics for a downloadable game too.

    Pretty simple controls consisting of a light attack, heavy attack, throw, block, and special moves on the trigger buttons. Light and heavy attack can be chained into combos, pretty easily too. Night Owl had some pretty cool finishers too(haven't tried Rorshach yet).

    Pretty decent game here. And for a movie tie-in game, it actually doesn't suck.

    I know, right?

    It's probably because they're doing this game in episodes, which allows for more development time and such.

    Yeah, how long of a game is it for that price?
    I hate to say it, but Castle Crashers raised the bar pretty high.

    One of the achievements is to beat it under 80 minutes, so that should tell you right there. But, despite being a little short, I've been liking it. The fighting is pretty cool. And it's not a bad looking game for an Arcade game.

    Wow, it's that short? Not worth the price of admission then.

    Played the demo, and it was pretty fun. And for $10, maybe. $5 they'd have me. $20, after reading how short it was though, no.

    It's a fun brutal game, but it does get repetitive. It might seem expensive for such a short game, but it's worth it for the novelty of maiming criminals with Rorschach. Hurm.

    I think Part 2 is due out soon. They're releasing both parts on a disc for thirty bucks a bit later, I'll wait till then.

    I'M GONNA SHOVE THAT MASK SO FAR UP YOUR ASS YOU'RE GONNA PUKE INKBLOTS, RORSCHACH!

    As I plan on getting the Directors cut anyways I might spring for the complete experience. I enjoyed the demo for The End is Nigh, don't think its worth the price they are trying to charge for it though.

    Haven't seen Part 2 up for download on PSN yet. Anyone else?

    I'm hoping they offer a discount if you download both parts together, as I haven't gotten Part 1 yet. Downloaded and played the demo, though -- pretty cool!

    Didn't find out about "The Complete Experience" until my movie-only BR had already shipped. Oh, well.

    Ebay:
    I saw them both on disc today, so I assume it's already out.

    EDIT: Should also add it was on PS3 aswell, so the UK has a version NOT bundled with the movie.

    They haven't announced a date for download yet. It might be a while if they plan on releasing it on both networks the same week. There is a disc version for 360 as well for $30, the PS3 version only comes bundled with the movie for $50.

    Ok so what is so wrong with this game that reviewers are giving it such low scores. Yes, it's a brawler, but why don't they penalize other brawlers. The fighting in this game is fun and very cinematic, and the graphics are decent for a 15 dollar game. On top of that it's offline coop and you do some cool comic case investigating. The demo was fun. My fiance and I played it and plan on buying it, but I want to see what the best deal for it is since I don't own the bluray yet.
