It’s Batman! If your a Batman fan, like me, it’s worth playing.
Pros: -30 Levels (Six Acts) 15 of the levels you play as the heroes and the other 15 levels you play as the villains, through their perspective. Each level took an average of 15 minutes (unless you got stuck) which I felt was a good amount of time. -Around 25 playable characters. Each with their own strengths and weaknesses. -Plenty of replay value. Story mode allows you to unlock the main characters and Free play allows you to go back to any level to find hidden treasures. Each level must be replayed in order to get 100% completion. -Access to The Batcave and Arkham Asylum. Nice “home zone” to view trophies, purchase extras, and to just run around. -Access to ride the Batmobile and other Batman vehicles. Adds a nice change of pace. -A few cute cut-scenes.
Cons: -The levels can be difficult. This was due to the game’s lack of direction. This can be a problem, since it’s a kid’s game. A lot of senseless puzzles that didn’t make much sense. -The loading time is slow. -There wasn’t a real storyline. You’re mainly just bashing up criminals. -Criminals have a tendency to have limitless number of lives. -The game itself has too dark of lighting. Without control of the camera angle, this can make the game difficult to view certain objects. -The game’s autosave feature is very inconvenient. The game will only save when you unlock an item or when a level is completed. This is a pet peeve of mine, let me save when I want to save!
Verdict: 7.8/10 = Good Overall this game was worth playing :). However, it could use some improvements.
