( Im a huge Batman fan so it hurts me to say this) Its a bigger game just not better. This is basically Warner Bros way to make a quick buck before Rocksteady puts together the next Arkham masterpiece. ( Not worth buying at all )

Pros: Its Batman

Cons: My biggest problem is that they messed up the combat system which was amazing in the past.

The textures and models are complete trash

The city was huge but there was no one in it to protect

Im shocked at how they dropped the ball when they had so much to work with.

It's really no difference from arkham city everything still the same which is okay i guess.

Good
The story is probably the only thing that would keep u playing to see what happens. The riddler side quest are little more easier to get i hated collecting these for xp. The last thing i kind of like is there are other way to get xp by training or answering police calls.

Bad
I guess they could of done more for the game but all they did is made another dis for online play which i didn't care for very much.

Overall it was really no different from the other two if your a hard core batman fan go for it. Me i would pay $50 for this if it was the game of the year edition with a lot of good dlc on it like arkham city.

This game was a lot of fun for what little I could play. Unfortunately bugs and freezes make the game unplayable. I was only able to make it 7% into the game before I reached a point right after the fight with Deathstroke that the game would freeze. After multiple restarts and attempts to get past this black screen, I gave up. After a quick google search, it would seem I'm not the only one with this issue. It did seem to be a game worth playing, better than AA, but not as good as AC from what I played. The boss fights I did play were repetitive and a chore to play. The slowdowns were a pain. Overall a disappointment for a series that did such a great job in the past, unfortunately it appears the lack of Rocksteady makes this near unplayable game seem like a quick cash-in from WB.
