This game is amazing can't wait for the third one to come out. Great exploration and story along with the fighting! Now if only Rocksteady WOULD MAKE SUPERMAN!!! There is only one thing I don't like about this game an that is that you have to use detective mode more then regular visual cause its dark and all the gray colors make it a little hard to see.

I was very excited to see this game in my mailbox. I had been waiting for this game since Arkham Asylum. I was not disappointed.

This game build on and improves everything that made Arkham Asylum great, and adds a number on new features that make it even better.

First off, the scope of the game is 10 times bigger then the last game. At any one time, you will have your main quest, three or more side quests, and a handful of Riddler challenges staring you in the face.

Speaking of the Riddler Challenges, there are over 400 in the game. You would think that it would be difficult to find them all, but they sneak a clever mechanic into the later part of the game to make it easier. By the time I completed the game, I had only acquired 65 of them.

The story is amazing, with lots of plot twists and secret agendas to keep it interesting. I was definitely not disappointed with the flow of the story, or how it ended. The voice acting is top notch. They use the same actors as in the Animated Series, so its no surprise there.

Graphics are amazing, just like the last game. I love the detail they went into with the Batsuit. As you go through the story, you can see the struggle Batman goes through just by looking at his suit.

This game was awesome. I would recommend anyone who liked the first game should definitely pick this up. Even if you have never even liked Batman, you need to give this a try. As was I, you will not be disappointed.
