Demo Impression: Tomb Raider Underworld


Downloaded this over the weekend. The graphics are phenomenal. I have never played Uncharted: Drake's Fortune but I think this title on the 360 looks as good as that title on the PS3. However the camera is not my friend. It gets hung up a lot when you have to do jumps. In the demo you're taking a lot of leaps of faith, not unlike another heroine in a big title this fall. I hope that gets fixed. This video is from Gamespot and provides a behind the scenes look at the game.

Demo Impressions: Mirror's Edge

Recently the demo was made available for the PS3 and the 360. I took a run through the demo last night and was impressed. Once you get the hang of the controls, Faith's movements are pretty fluid and there is an impressive sense of speed as you move through the demo. If you're prone to motion sickness you may want to sit further back from your screen unless you're playing on a smaller TV. It was a little unsettling at first when you're getting your bearings. I didn't play the demo to the very end, but I did like the look and controls so much that I don't think I'd be disappointed when I do get a chance to play through. The attached video is a commercial but it highlights a lot of the action available in the demo.
