Hands down best batman game ever

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.

What can I say, this game has surprised me in many ways. Everything looks great and the fighting presentation that this game offers in remmarkable. I like how you can focus on more then one person when your in a group fight and the sneak attacks are crazy. Finally, a batman game that uses more gadgets then a simple batterang. The controls are simple but it's nothing to complain about. One click of a button and your gliding down to kick someone in the face or hanging a goon upside down and letting him fall and smash his face. The A.I. is pretty decent, not the brightest bunch, but that was to be expected. There wasn't to much to complain about when it comes to this game. It has marked it's territory as the best Batman game that has ever graced a game console.
