Overall excellent demo SSM. It seems that SP wasn't shafted after all.
Anyways, things I noticed
-3 menu options - Single Player (Kratos) 2 dude fighting (Multiplayer) and an unknown one at the back (possibly Treasures)
-Collectible items are back
-8 items/weapons" slots (including the Blades of Chaos, I'd assume the other items include the multiplayer weapons: Sword, Hammer, Spear, Gauntlets)
-Upgrade screen displays summaries of all upgrades before you unlock them (ie it tells you that Level 3 BoC unlocks Triangle combo while Level 5 BoC gives increased rage meter)
-Demo had enough orbs to upgrade to level 2 BoC
-Rage meter now steadily drains but builds up very quickly as you fight, when maxed you get more damage and more combos
-The full combo Plume of Prometheus (the leap-slam one) is only available when rage is active
-Cyclone of Chaos (the spin attack) is no longer L1+Square but rather hold Square
-Grab is now R1 and Kratos chains the enemy (allows for long range grabs and throws)
-Circle is knock back (Kratos uses his fists or kicks) which also disarms opponents
-L1+0 is a mini ground slam that is available from level 1
-Cyclops Riding is back
-The basic grunts in the demo weren't insta killable like the undead/goatmen in previous games
-Sliding segments from Ghost of Sparta are in
-The demo does hint at the Rise of the Warrior comic
Anything else you guys noticed?

Lord: >ground and pound
HC (mount)? It's in MP. It belongs to Kratos.
Disturbed: >Sprint as L3
I wasn't pleased with this or the ridiculous parry.
