Well let me start with saying I am a HUGE batman fan. Have been sence I was a baby 2-4yrs old infact. I am 32 now and still love the pointy eared FREAK! However much I tried to be bias about this game I simply cant deny just how much I love the story and villians period. So if your looking for someone with a "Gamer" only perspective I am not the review to read.
so lets go down the list shall we
Controls/ Sometimes get goofy but a solid 8/10
Graphics/Batman does have rather large forearms and Gordan is REALLY ripped for being a 60yr old man but thats all you can say really enviroments are UNBELIEVEABLE!! 10/10
Story/ again I love batman its gotta be a 10/10
Now comes my only big problem with this game. This game and many others are too short for $60 man its really starting to get to me. It should take a week to beat a game. (if you work) Not a few hours
Replay is high for me cause I am a bat-a-junkie
Again sorry for the bias but I cant help it

I played this game the entire time waiting for the house of cards to come crashing down as all movie/comic based games usually do. What I found by the end though was one of the most amazing Batman stories, a really accurate bat experience, and one amazing game. Well worth a buy and you would have to be a fool not to even rent it as even if you are not a huge fan of batman this is one of the best games of the year. Take advantage of Batman's stealth ability and fear tactics, his mastery of martial arts, technology/gadgets, and his detective ability's in ways that you never dreamed could be possible in a comic liscenced game until now. Great graphics, good AI, Awesome cut scenes, and fun battles abound all wrapped up in one of the longest nights of batman's life. The leveling and unlock system work great while the Riddler's got all sorts of fun stuff stashed away as hidden collectibles adding to the game time even after the end. The only downfall that I have found with this game is the Voice work doesn't always match what the character on screen is doing facially but that is a very very minor hang up in this over all great experience.
