    I don't mean to insinuate this game was bad. I got to play a bit over at my brother's house when it came out (he is a huge Batman fan), and just don't feel like this is one of those games that really stands-out from the crowd.

    The story, from as far as I got, felt like alot of fan service (very similar to the previous title). Much like the previous title my primary complaint is the story isn't well structured for people who don't already know the batman universe. To someone like me, whose only exposure is from the movies, I spend large chunks of the game lost in the shuffle of poor character development.

    It also doesn't help that this game has TOO MANY CHARACTERS. This compounds my previous point, its fine if you already know the characters coming in, but to someone on the outside (or just in terms of traditional story telling) too many characters get muddled, harming the final presentation.

    Couple that with the fact that this game has alot of busy work... Alot...

    I don't know, my personal opinion this is a good game, but really doesn't stand out for me. Its kind of like GTA4 for me, alot of fun to play, but the moment I turn the game off I forget about it. The story doesn't have alot of staying power, isn't intellectually challenging, and doesn't have any real stand-out characters or character development (unless, as I said, you go into the game already knowing all of them).

    Before I get blasted, just note this perspective is coming from someone who is not entering the game as a Batman fan. I have no preconceived notions or knowledge of most of these characters.

    Even as a casual observer of Batman, this story is nothing special. Dark Knight and Mask of the Phantasm both run circles around this story.

    That being said, thats really my only complaint. The gameplay is flawless, I wish more games adopted this style of combat. I also really like the way this game handles stealth and you as a Super Hero, it adds alot of good tension. I am also really happy with how Rocksteady has painted Arkham City. It has both scale and character.
    Gauss's Piracy Uncertainty Principle: When you pirate a game, that act inherently changes the results of what is to come after your pirating. You can't make any statement with any certainty regarding what would have happened had you not pirated the game.


    Gauss's Rating Rationale:
    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    That's fair enough. We all have our different tastes and styles.

    So am I; but that doesn't matter as the game is so brillant.

    Great review Kerwan, just picked the game up today and reading that was a nice introduction to what I can expect. I'll have to see about the 10/10 score though
    Indeed so. You may be surprised - as I was - at how awesome it is.

    Well when you see a fair amount of the Saw movies and then see how The Riddler acts that comment is inevitable.

    Nice review. I missed out on the first. Definitely getting this one.
    Then make sure to get the first one and then work your way to this.

    Yeah, I really enjoyed this aspect; it happened to me a few times. You could stumble across a side mission and completely forget what your real objective was because of how fantastic the mission was.

    What? You haven't played it yet? You're missing out on a lot guys. Seriously...

    I said when I was 2 days in that if whoever reviewed it didnt give it a 10 they should be banned! And having started NG+ and gotten all riddles and all but 2 challenge rooms done, I am still interested! I am only 2 campaigns in and they seem the difficult part this time around! The single challenges are not to bad but be wary of those modifiers in the campaigns...
    Wow, thanks.

    Don't worry, I won't be banned anytime soon at this rate. And is NG+ really that much more difficult? I wouldn't have thought so. I'll have to see that for myself.

Don't take this the wrong way, as I'm only providing constructive criticism, but perhaps you should spend more time reviewing or rereading what you write before posting it. This is my only gripe. Other than that, an excellent review and I look forward to playing the game.



    I'm curious as to what you thought of the game Gauss as your taste in games is similar to mind judging from your past reviews and thoughts on games.
    No problem; a quality and self-respecting member of RT should always be open for criticism and constructive feedback. I'll made use to fix that in the future.

    And I rarely do the same. Actually, I haven't ever done the same. So this is an exeception.

    for sure.

I love this game, and it is possibly the greatest story game (to those who haven't played the mgs collection). It seems like a short story, but theres an endlessness to gameplay including riddles, fighting medals, and side missions. I think they balanced it out perfectly.
    True, but it's also up to others to say if they agree with the actual review and score itself; and I love reading through all these comments like this.

    Don't wait around. Get it now, and make sure you buy it new. Rocksteady more than deserves it.

    Great review Kerwan!
    Thanks, and I couldn't agree more.

    I agree with the score. This is one of the best games I've played. Graphics are AMAZING!! This game has the BEST combat fighting style. No game can even come close to that. The fight with that Demon guy forgot his name is EPIC. The way we had to take down Mr feeze was AMAZING. The way that fight was setup was great.. AMAZING GAME !!!

    I was getting this game anyway but I enjoy reading your reviews and I can see this game deserves no less than 10.

    Nice review, I give this game a 10 as-well. Got it the first day and it's the bomb. For those who don't have it, I suggest you get it or try your hardest to.

    I love how the length of the game is long to for the playthrough i didn't feel like i needed to rush it or wanted to since i had to answer phone calls and save political prisoners and all of that going for the plat though will be a bitch in a half can't wait for late november when robin and nightwing DLC will be on the PSN btw will be 6.99 each character and will come with all the challenge maps even the ones that were preorder only.

    For me trophies have become an integral part of gaming, like a stereo in a car. Is it really necessary? No. Is it a lot more fun with it though? Hell yeah!
