I rented the game from Gamefly, but apparently that's not enough. If you aren't the "first purchaser" of the game, you don't get to play as Catwoman, who apparently is a big enough part of the game to be worth $10, which we can only assume translates into being 1/6 of the game if you bought it at $60.
That being said, I have to give this game a bad review. It's shoddy business and doesn't deserve my respect. Not to mention, the game never wants you to forget how to play it. It constantly throws "Press B!" indicators all over the place, so it's like the game is trying to hold your hand the whole time, which is terribly annoying.
The gameplay and story itself was fine, but unfortunately it seems this gem was a bit cloudy.

Great game hands down, without a doubt one of the best games i have played. The game play is so fluent and and easy to pick up. huge environment with amazing side missions and allot of great Batman comic villains to go against. Using the old villains as well as the newest ones. great main story plot full of anticipation and thrill. the challenges are tough but not so hard you wana tare your hair out. amazing graphics , the developers did a great job of showing some of the battle scares and damages in Batman's costume through out the game. Smooth movement map great transportation and great use of hi gadgets. Being a huge Batman fan i love the bios and the concept art on the characters. Batman: Arkham City is a definite keeper for sure with the constant add-ons i cant wait for the next title.

This game was great,if they didnt have walkthrews on youtube i wouldnt be able to do it it was so diffucult to get around i doubt anyone could do this game without an walkthrough or hours of looking around for a place to leave or door. this game was short and felt very unfinished for the main part (batman) I really did like the game though beat it in 2 days
