    Im "Swinging" (Pardon the pun) towards Batman but the Online Co-Op of Resident Evil 5 is tempting.

    Batman is the superior game overall but keep in mind it lacks any multiplayer at all.

    Been playing Batman for the past few hours ... I much prefer it over RE5.

    Both as they are 2 of the strongest PC releases this year. RE5 has online co-op + LIVE for achievements & will be a lot of fun and it takes around 1 month to get the full 1K GS and do everything.

    Batman: AA also has LIVE for achievements but will not take anywhere near as long to complete as RE5 so is slightly worse value for money.

    RE5 if you can only buy 1 as there is a lot of gameplay to get through. Took me well over 100 hours on the 360 version which was around a solid months worth so PC will be at least as much if not longer.

    I thought the Batman game was already out :) I'm going for the RE5 game, not played any of the others except the Gamecube remake.

    Why is there no Resi Evil 5 reviews anywhere yet? - I mean PC version.

    Great reviewing games that aren't even released. I remember a while back a few companies reviewing certain games then basing the reviews on stuff that companies were saying would be in the full release - got serious egg on there faces after they pulled stuff out to release on time.

    I much prefer peoples view points rather than 'exclusive' interviews. Personally though I'd go for Batman at least that has the look of some originality in it.

    If at all possible get both.
    By all accounts they are both fantastic games - some of the best games of 2009 so far.

    At £17.95 for Batman and £16.95 for RE5 I went for both. :D

    My slight annoyance now is that I was also partially tempted by Red Faction Guerilla but don't think I'll bother with it now. If it had been released this week or last I probably would've picked it up but now it's a one day maybe, which knowing me will be never.

    These people really do need to sort the release schedules out. :(

    Already had Batman on pre order for £16.10 from the Ex Virgin Megastore site, begining with Z and sounding like ravvi.

    The same site also have Res 5 on pre order for £16.95, so for just over the price of one of them from Steam I'm getting both.

    Batman. I am eagerly awaiting this. It may even take me away from Tiger Woods 10 and Dirt 2 on my XBox.
