Great game..at times it gets tough...you really have to think/be careful.

Real great fun, the puzzles (including combat strategy) are varied and rewarding.

It's because DLC can have an effect on the single player. Bad design but avoidable. Rock band does this by just rechecking DLC when you go back to a main menu.

Very impressed with the game so far! The production values are incredible and they really capture the feel of what it would be like to be Batman. The gameplay is a great mix of puzzle-solving and visceral combat.

The graphics and audio are also stellar. Is the game still running on the Unreal engine? Very impressive even still...

This is interesting... there's an official "Map App" available on iTunes.

View all the maps in the game to find every Riddler trophy and solve every riddle. It's interactive to keep track of your progress. Costs $3.

I guess it's cheating, in the same way a strategy guide or Googleing a solution is, which some people won't like and others will welcome. I think this is an interesting, optional use of an iPad/iPod Touch to enhance gameplay.

Thoughts?

Console gamers curious/interested in PC gaming?

Exo, you wasted your cash. With BF3 just around the corner, Batman is going to be very lonely.

Looking forward to running with you, giovanni, and the rest of the AVS crew once again.

So wait, the Catwoman gameplay is through a DLC? So if you don't get the DLC you don't see or play as Catwoman at all?

For those looking into getting Energy speakers, or upgrading their current Energy setup, here are some reviews I've written that may help:

spyder696969,

Yeah it is dang close to BF3 time and that game will go in as soon as I get it.

I cannot play one game straight though for like 6 months. I usually have to take a break so I will either go back to this or AC when it comes out than back to BF3.

I played for a bit last night but was getting my rear end kicked left and right. Playing it on hard right now and need to learn to fight a bit better.

If you buy the game brand new, the Catwoman DLC code is already included in the case.

Oh okay, but I'm asking if you don't install the code, you don't play the Catwoman stuff, right? I'm going to let my little brother use my system while I'm out of town and one of the agreements between my mother and him is for him to be able to play, all the Catwoman stuff can't be on it haha

Plus the cool thing is that I could just use the code after I get it back and not miss a thing

Just finished the main campaign and some side missions. I wish the Boss fights were more challenging (I recall having a tougher time in AA). Otherwise top notch and one of the best in this genre for sure.

He's not allowed to see women with cleavage? I just don't get the rule...
It's not like she gets naked and whores around Gotham City.

There's bad language throughout that I would find more offending.

From what I know you don't play as her, but I think she may still show up in some cutscenes, no matter what. As I can't understand how he would get out of some situations without having shown that she was involved.

If anyone is undecided on purchasing this, I suggest you plop the cash down and join the fun.

Just finished the game on Normal and it was well worth it.... not to mention I still have an enormous amount of things left to do (side missions, trophies, DLC, etc.).

Mathematics is the reason for the season.

I'm trying to finish the last (I think) Catwoman bit after the story is finished and just finding it nigh impossible on hard. Plan to take on the hard plus that doesn't have any enemy attack notifiers....that's going to be brutal.

Yeah, well he's 12 and my mom is super strict. It's more because my mom researched it and saw the catwoman trailer where it zooms in on her butt and stuff (STUPID trailer) so she thinks she's all sexual all the time. It's more that than the cleavage stuff. And my dad swears all the time so the language won't be different than their household haha

It's perfectly fine to let kids actively "participate" in decapitations, shootings, beatings, stabbings, or any other form of violence...BUT SEE AN ANIMATED REAR-END OR SOME CLEAVAGE AND IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!

Gotta love those "Puritan family values."

-------------


Just beat the game. An okay time-killer overall; nothing ground-breaking whatsoever, still decent fun, but I'm glad it's over so I can focus on the far more important and entertaining games coming up.

I beat the main story campaign and about three of the side missions.

Epic gaming at its most varied and challenging.

I still have a bunch of side missions and riddler challenges.

Not to mention the challenge maps.......

I think My game is bugged. it keeps saying on the screen when not in detective mode, When grappling over long distance use the grappel boos to launch batman into the air, including the indstructions on which buttons to press on the bottom of the screen. It just wont go away.

I tried restarting, and its still there. I have it set to no on hints and same thing.

Go into your menu via the back button, find the Grapnel Boost and turn off the tutorial there.

You can setup any move or remove it that way. Helpful at first, but annoying otherwise.

Champer,

I saw the same thing last night and it would not go away until I did the boost process. Once I died and started at the last save it showed up again until I did the boost steps and then it went away.

I think I made a mistake and started on hard mode which seems to be a button masher. I may start all over again on normal.

are there any suits to unlock or are they all DLC? I finished the game and thought it would be cool to switch into the armored suit like in the first one, instead of the tattered bloody mess you finish as.

Yeah that would be cool if you could play again but in the armored suit. Metal Gear Solid this is and I went through game several times because each time you unlock something like the tux and the bandanna.

There are supposed to be 4-5 skins for suits...regular suit, as shipped, and Batman: Year One//Batman Beyond//Miller's Dark Knight//TAS (kinda cool with the big square jaw and everything...)
Not sure if they're unlocks, or codes... Does no one have these? Supposed to be Nightwing, and 3 Robin skins as well...
I have not purchased, as I am still having a blast in Gears 3. but I will very soon...

I'm pretty sure it was preorder DLC, which means it will be on sale for too high of a price... if it isn't already.

My comment on the "hard" mode was not to address what you are seeing, just a comment on the game.

If you perform the action does it not go away? Mine stayed on the screen until I actually did it.

I have not purchased, as I am still having a blast in Gears 3. but I will very soon...

There are seven Batman skins, some of which came with pre-orders. Animated Batman came from Gamestop. Robin came from Bestbuy and also had the Red Robin skin. Nightwing is stand-alone DLC. Catwoman DLC comes with brand new copy of the game. Animated Nightwing, Robin and Catwoman also come with their own DLC. Batman Beyond was a UK Gamestop pre-order bonus. 70s Batman was a Toys 'R Us pre-order bonus. Batman: Earth One was from MightyApe pre-order. Miller's Dark Knight Returns was a pre-order from somewhere in the UK, as well. My local Gamestop was also selling the Robin and Nightwing DLC as a separate purchase.

Most of these skins aren't available for use until you beat the main game, except in the challenge maps, I think.
