I think there was only one way you could get killed (unprotected sex!) and you could loop back endlessly to get stuff you didn't get the first time around. They were an adventure not multiple contests.. which being inept I relate to smashing the controller.
If it's about save points, you'll be better off with Uncharted 2. Batman only saves when you enter or exit a large area IIRC. Uncharted 2's auto saves are very generous.
Also, generally speaking, Batman is much more "gamey" than Uncharted 2. In Batman, you have to know a bunch gaming conventions and combine them (attack combos, stealth, multiple weapon types, backtracking, item collection, special visors, map use, etc). In Uncharted 2, it's pretty much a straight line and all you have to know how to do is jump, climb, and shoot. But unlike the first Uncharted, there's much more variety in the gameplay, and you won't hit any of those difficulty spike areas (large arena battles). Uncharted 2 is much better paced and smoothly constructed than the first one.
Both are fantastic games, but Uncharted 2 is by far the easier of the two for non-gamers.
