  1. I’m gonna try it, I really want to like this game and hopefully the demo doesn’t let me down.

  2. From the sound of everyone who tried the demo, its not really bad but pretty lackluster. The latter is which I was afraid of. This just turned into another reason why BW should have featured the titular showman himself as the playable hero instead of generic kids who should have stayed as support characters or something, atleast then the game could be more entertaining. I will still give BW a try tough.
