Default Castlevania - Lords of Shadow

Anyone play the demo? I liked it. It had some nice unique things and some copy and paste from other games (GOW).

Ah, I knew I should have checked this week since it went up last week for EU PS+ members. I will probably check it out tomorrow sometime.

Demo is too short for my liking and ended just when i was getting to grips with the combat. It does look good even if it is a little jaggy and the framerate issues are distracting, particularly in cut scenes. I have pre-ordered the 360 version though, although time will tell with the demo. If it runs worse on the 360 then i guess i will cancel that pre-order and get the PS3, but i hope that is not the case. I really just want Exclusives on my PS3 and not have multiplatforms soiling my view of it I feel that the PS3 is special with just Exclusives......well to me anyway

Well its 1 disc on PS3 while its 2 disc on the X360. I didn't notice any frame rate issues with the demo... jaggies were there but I am pretty close to the monitor since my ps3 is hooked up to my gf pc monitor.

I am looking really forward to it. Trailers make me crazy. I love muddy atmopshere and great voice acting. I just hope it wont be frustrating hard

I liked the demo, combat seems very fluid. I played it at the hardest difficulty they let me choose and I didn't feel that difficult. It definitely gives me hope for the full game that it is good. I love the DMC GoW Bayonetta type games. I didn't notice any frame rate issues but unless it's major I don't usually notice them.

Some reviews mention parts, that can be frustratingly hard, but we'll see.
