ITS GOOD BUT NOT AS GOOD AS ARKHAM CITY BUT ITS JUST AS FUN THE CONTROLS AND SOME ANINIMATION GLITCHES TAKES SOME OF THE PERFECTION OUT OF THE GAME. BUT THE STORY IS VERY GOOD AND DETECTIVE MODE IS FUN. I THINK ARKHAM IS A SMALL CITY MAP IT COULD OF BEEN MORE INTERACTION WITH CITY LIFE. BUT OVERALL A GOOD RENTAL TO HAVE.

I am absolutely floored that this game hasn't gotten better ratings. When I wrote this, review, it's average rating was 7.9. That's RIDICULOUS. This game may be the best game I've played in 30 years gaming. It's without a doubt, in my top 5 lifetime games. Grand Slam! Hat Trick! Triple Crown! Pick-6! Winston cup!! Winner!

WB Games butchered this franchise

I see A LOT of negative reviews for this game and it seems fitting I am huge fan of everything Batman especially the previous games, but this they ruined it all with this

The first thing I noticed about this game is how they changed the combat system, not by some large margin, but little things the counters do not work as they used its very difficult now to maintain combo with out making mistakes it used to be effortless now its just frustrating to the extreme, The cape stun has been dumbed down, Snipers on rooftops have Deadshot's accuracy, I have gotten shot by snipers around corners while I was gliding it made absolutely no sense.

The fast travel was a good idea but its just a cutscene to Bats flying in his Batwing ( We should be able to fly it come on what a tease!) you used to be able to grapple almost any darn thing you pleased they changed that and it seems you can only do it from certain distances.

No 100% completion achievement, The challenges to get upgrades is completely ridiculous because by time you complete them the game is over. The dark knight mode is crazy hard and you are only given 1 LIFE! If you die you start at the beginning!

Multiplayer is unplayable (for me) because you cant find any matches or it takes forever to find one.

Glitches, Freezes, Slowed framerates at certain times and certain cutscenes, and the interiors do not repopulate. In the previous games if you cleared out a building and left then came back in all the enemies would spawn again but not this time which is repugnant considering you have to complete challenges, that run parallel to the predator challenges to get upgrades

Boss fights were cool and fun but challenging....

Only reason why I played this game was for the story sake I was really disappointed with the games performance and gameplay I had reservations to buy this game but after playing I canceled that decision, If the same people are in charge of making the next one I probably wont even bother pla
