    Sorry if this is old news but I thought I would tell everyone there's a Amazing Spider-Man DEMO on the e-shop now. Also, what do you guys think about it? I really wish it had the city roaming feature like the console versions.

    I actually loved the demo besides the mediocre graphics.

    I might pick up the full game. Or play the Wii version.

    Not only that, you only get ten demos. Really mess up. While think it good, I wish it was mor elike the ps3/360 one.

    It's great, but in my opinion the best part is how you can alter the camera angle with the gyroscope motion control.

    Publishers are getting completely ridiculous with the demo limit. Limit of 10 on this one, limit of 6 on Heroes of Ruin. FFS, It's just a demo. 15 minutes of play at best.

    The fight system is very Arkham-y.
    I hope this wasn't a representation of the final product, the menus look like a ps1 game. :lol:

    Menus were bad, and the graphics need work, it feels like a beta version, for sure.
    Combat was pretty fun, though. I liked it.

    Yeah, the whole play limit on demos is just pointless!

    I don't see why everyone is freaking out about the play limit. It's a demo, it's meant to give you a taste of the game before you buy it, and that's it... They could even limit it to 1 play if they wanted, and i wouldn't blame them, honestly. Less demo plays means you'll be more likely to buy the game (especially if you're talking about a 7 year old or inept parent who doesn't really understand the difference between a demo and a full game).

    Anyway, I have mixed feelings about this game... it definitely has much better graphics and gameplay than Edge of Time 3D. I also kinda like how disorienting the game is when web swinging and wall climbing, weirdly enough... it feels a bit more realistic to me.

    For me the Demo limits really don't matter. Usually If I play a demo I will decide within the first few plays whether or not I'm gonna end up getting the game. So even if it only has 6 plays I'll have gotten all I need out of it. I played through it once to try it out and it just wasn't for me. End of story. On the other hand the demo of Lego Batman 2 changed my mind with only one play as well. While I'm not gonna run out and get it right away I will pick it up eventually. just my 2 cents.

    or Not give us enough time to want us to continue looking at the game.
    Especially when this happens.


    If someone played the demo that much and didn't buy the game, that person wasn't going buy it anyway.

    You think demos would be use to not only see if you want the game, but to find bugs as well even if it is a small part.

    It is funny that they are promoting the game function "free roam" saying it is the essence of being Spiderman but guess what? They completely remove it in the 3DS game.
    Either they are lazy or they just don't give a damn. Oh well, it is not like I will be getting the game since it will not be releasing in JPN.

    How is 10 time limitless plays NOT enough time to decide?
    Precisely. If they don't have the opportunity to play the demo 30 times (even if you only play 30 minutes at a time, that's 15 hours), maybe they'll buy the game. You really can't blame them for wanting to promote sales.
    Following the 30 minute plays from my previous examples, 30 minutes each for 10 plays is 5 hours. How is that NOT enough time to see bugs?

    You sure about that? The first thing I saw when I started playing was a web-rush option. :blink:

    *Shrug* To each their own, I guess. Idk, I guess I just find it kind of silly for people to complain about the lack of features in a free trial for a full product. Especially when you consider that most games don't have demos available with a simple 10 minute download, let alone for free... Anyone remember the good ol' PS1 demo disc days you got for subscribing to magazines and such? :P
