This Friday Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers will get a chance to see whether the hype surrounding Batman Arkham Asylum is justified with a demo on Xbox Live and PSN. Though the action adventure isn't due for release until August 28th, previews have been extremely positive and the first review, from the official PlayStation magazine rates the PS3 version 9/10 saying: "Arkham Asylum is comfortably the best comic book game that PlayStation's ever had, and is up there with the system's best actioners, full stop."

The Batman: Arkham Asylum demo opens as the Dark Knight and Commissioner Gordon return The Joker back into confinement at Arkham Asylum. But things soon fall apart as The Joker gains the upper hand and springs a trap, setting Arkham Asylum’s occupants upon Batman. The demo offers gamers a taste of the fierce FreeFlow combat system, the stealth of the Invisible Predator mechanic, and the feeling of becoming the world's greatest detective as they navigate Arkham Asylum’s imposing Intensive Treatment facility. Players can unlock character bios, as well as get a sneak peak at some of the infamous foes that Batman will encounter within the cavernous and macabre confines of Arkham Asylum.

This brand new demo trailer gives you a taste of what to expect:

The demo for Batman: Arkham Asylum will be available for the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 worldwide on August 7..Fans can visit www.batmanarkhamasylum.com for details on how to download the Games For Windows LIVE version.
