    I found it pretty long. Especially as I haven't finished it yet.

    Seriously though: I'm taking it slow anyway...

    How many hours did it take you?
    Also were you just rushing through it?

    If you just do the Main Quest is fairly short.
    Between 6-8 hrs.

    Finished the game yesterday, I found the game pretty short too. I did maybe half of the side missions, and I haven't touched the challenge maps yet.

    There is enough content to keep me occupied till November. But the main story is actually really short, and in my opinion, really disappointing.

    While I agree that looks like a short game, if we compare it to most new games, it's fairly long .

    It is meant to not be rushed thru... If you did most side stuff and riddles along with it it will last longer. Problem is ppl putting the disc in and rushing straight thru the main storyline and then saying it only lasted 8 hours... THATS CUZ YOU DIDNT HAVE FUN WITH IT!

    Exactly so ... it's best to take your time and settle into the role, and mindset of the main character. That's what RPGs are all about.

    In BAC, each time I sit down to play, I start off with a warmup - namely, going off in a random direction and clearing an area of all visible thugs, starting from the rooftops, and working down to street level. Once all the gunmen are gone, I'll put away the grapple gun and just charge headlong into the biggest gangs I can find and beat the %$^& out of them. I'll try to cycle though at least half my gadgets, in order to build reflex memory. Once I'm warmed up, I'd resume whichever story mission I'd left off on.

    Non-sequitur: I wish they'd given Catwoman more dialog. Batman has some nice variations when he's interrogating riddler thugs, but Selena rarely says anything.

    ^This.

    ...To be fair, you're actually further in the story without doing certain side missions. You havent solved the first riddle, rescued a hostage, completed Bane's side mission... etc. I'm jealous - I love this game. (I'm judging that on you having a story mission trophy, yet not having the others).

    Agreed - you need to take everything in and once you do everything there is to do, then your 8 hours will span 30+. For example, just try to get all the riddle challenges without a guide to back you up and hours will pile up on you like nothing and you will actually be having fun doing it. Although some of the riddle trophies can be frustrating until you realize what you need to do.

    I'm planning on getting everything possible prior to riddler's revenge and leaving that until the end 'cause I know I had some trouble with them in Arkham Asylum and there will be plenty of retrying and restarting in my immediate future. *sarcastic yay*

    Actually, thinking about it, it did seem really short. But then again I did blast through it.
