    Note that the download is about 2.03 GB in size.

    I just tested this demo out on my 15'' NP8662 Gaming laptop running Windows 7 RC 7100 X64.

    I have settings at very high detail level, resolution at 1680 X 1050, AA disabled, everything else on and Physx set to high. I get from 35-40 fps, sometimes 50-60 fps.

    With Physx disabled I get a more constant 45-50 fps and a lot of the time 59-60 fps.

    I guess this is where SLI would come into play in terms of being able to use Physx without frame rate drops.

    Either way, this game is perfectly playable and I love the combat. It does look much better with Physx enabled though.

    It would be interesting to know anyone elses performance.

    Oh nice, I will download it and give it a go later.

    Will post my opinions of it later here, I have been kind of looking forward to this game.

    took a while to download, anyway

    1920x1080 with everything max except with physx off, almost max FPS
    physx on is pretty horrible, around 25fps... (and thats on normal)

    combat is pretty good, better then I expected

    Well I gave it a go, performance wise everything was set to max apart from physx which I disabled. I got a rock solid 60fps, it wouldnt budge from that so I guess its capped at that.

    Gameplay wise I played it for three minutes, tapped X 100 times on my 360 controller then deleted it. I wasnt too impressed with it to be honest.

    It just seemed like the most bog standard, basic beat em up you could play but with Batman tacked on.

    I really liked it. Detective mode is pretty cool. Guy above me, you didn't play it fairly. Very fun. Fighting is fun for combos. Combining finishers, cape stuns, and quick throws makes for a fun fight. Will buy.

    It isn't actually, later on in the level you can't even go in all guns blazing hitting X 1000 times, you have to do silent take downs, counter attacks to survive and make use of detective mode to find hidden items or ways to take down enemies. There is a hostage scenario so you have to be careful.

    Playing anything for 3 minutes is no real indication of what it has to offer otherwise they would have just given as a 3 minute demo to download.
