This game is a masterpiece. This is how you make a super hero game! Even though Batman is a super hero, he can still get his batbooty whooped, which gives him a very human feel. The use of his cape is ingenious and exhilerating. I find myself just picking fights instead of the mission at hand. The variety of ways to dispatch of badguys makes for make for a great time. If you played the first Batman, then this is what you have been waiting for! I suggest playing the hard level off the bat (hehe), it will force you to use your batbrain which is quite satisfying when your plan pans out perfectly. I will play this game long after the hype dies down! Get your copy ASAP!
but a few thing keep it from being one of the all-time greats.
1. Story mode is too short - I beat it in one day, and I did some side missions and collected Riddler trophies.
2. Not enough boss fights - there's only 4 or 5. and they're not even hard, which brings me to...
3. This game is too easy - Besides some enemies wearing armor and shields and wielding guns, there isn't much of a challenge to taking them out. I wish there were more enemies that were as tough as the Abramovici twins, they added a little variety to the the mix.
4. Some of the side characters were used poorly - I thought some of them would have their own unique story, but no. Most of them posed even less of a threat than a generic thug. Very disappointed in that.
Other than those complaints, this game is perfect.
