This reminds me of the old saying you shouldn't talk about politics and religion... hell, those are the things I most love talking about!

How did we get to a place in society where arguing your opinion passionately and vigorously are a bad thing? Several posts in this forum over the past few days have tried to make me feel like an asshole for doing so, but it just isn't going to happen.

You can play the game on PC with a controller or a mouse. You can only use a controller on the consoles. PC wins the controls arguement. If you have a good reason that isn't true, speak up son.

I'm not trying anything mate. Honestly. I just think I've spend enough time arguing. Not withdrawing from the thread, but the discussion. I'll still post my opinion on the game and visit this thread. I already posted in the demo thread, I believe its a brilliant game. Highly recommended...

Is it Metroid style? Some people say it is some people say not... what I mean is a sort of open asylum and new abilities grant you further access in old areas.

Well, the Asylum is open, but you cannot access everything at once, the game kind of takes you on a fixed path, ie limited freedom lets say. What I like about it is the great story setting, great voice acting and very good gameplay variety. There's exploration, action sections, stealth sections, puzzle solving etc. It combines 2-3 genres very well. Not too much of one thing at once as to become tedious. Ie, puzzle solving, then an action sequence, then stealth, then an action sequence again, etc. 2 thumbs up...

This game is awesome. Got the PS3 version because I didn't want to wait. It looks good, I don't regret it at all, plus I can trade it in at a later date. Also, I wanted to check out the Joker stuff.

I thought the game was just a Devil May Cry rip off with Batman, but there is more to it. The detective mode is cool and I love the grappling hook system. This game rocks.

Why didn't you wait for the Steam version?
I also preordered it from D2D. I've never tried them before so I figured I would give them a try. A good thing I like about them is you can install the game where ever you want to instead of Steam not giving that option. We'll see how it works out.

haha, ya right. You don't even have smoke in the 360 version - how lame is that?? The PC version will look alot different with PhysX. Go back and watch the video that shows all the differences. (http://www.gamephys.com/2009/09/01/h...asylum-better/)

Its not just banners like in Mirror's Edge.

The console version almost doesn't even look finished after seeing it on the PC with PhysX.
