4.0 out of 5 stars The definitive Dark Knight experience September 28, 2009
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Overall, this game is great fun and is definitely the best Batman game released on any console so far, but there are a few issues that keep it from being perfect.

First the negatives:

I didn't have any problem installing the game, and since I had already set up a Windows live account for a previous game, that wasn't a problem (I was somehow automatically logged in whenever this game started). But I use a Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2 instead of a 360 controller, and the game wouldn't work properly with it at first. The y-axis on the left analog stick was reversed, so that pushing the stick forward caused Batman to turn around and walk toward the camera instead of walking forward, and the A and X buttons were swapped with the B and Y buttons. I could have remapped the buttons within the game, but there was no way to invert the y-axis of the left analog stick! The game was unplayable in this state, but by downloading and configuring an xbox 360 controller emulator, I was able to remap all controls to the way it should have been. If you don't use an xbox 360 controller as your PC gamepad, be aware that you may have this issue, but you can find a work-around.

The second problem I had with the game was that the camera follows Batman too closely. When running or fighting, the camera zooms out to give an adequate view, but otherwise, it's so close that Batman takes up about 3/4 of the vertical screen space. I was constantly having to maneuver the camera around Batman whenever I wanted to see what was right in front of me without switching to first person view. This isn't a game-killer, but it is an annoyance that together with the controller issue takes away a star from the review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Batman for the PC September 18, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I received my copy the day it cam out an am about 4 hours into it and I can say that I am truly enjoying it. The developers did an outstanding job on this game and creating something that should be remembered for years to come.

I was not sure if I was going to get this game or not until the demo came out. After playing through that half a dozen times I knew that it needed to be in my collection. So a note to developers out there, PC demos help.

The graphics are gorgeous. The detailed models for batman and the surroundings keeps you immersed and you honestly do feel like you are there. I love the Physx effects and can say that they are worth turning on (and the FPS hit). The smoke, papers, spider webs, banners, and other things all move realistically and it just adds to that immersion feeling.

The sound seems good. I can tell that a lot of the voice acting is familiar from the old tv series. I have some complaints about some cheesy lines but overall it is quite good. This games works well with my 5.1 speaker system and just as well for my headphones.

The game play is better then I thought it would be. I was afraid from the demo that the fighting was to simplistic and it would get redundant but have changed my opinion about that. The upgrades you get along the way can also open up some new moves and it really isn't button mashing, you really do have to time your hits right and have to be aware of the enemies around you.

It runs well and the installation was easy. I do not have internet at my house so I don't like DRM that requires you to register before you can play and limits your installs. This game does not do that However you do have to set up a Windows Live account online which I did several months back.

2.0 out of 5 stars Games for Windows Live dampens this experience September 19, 2009
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is not necessarily a review of the game, as I have only played it for a few hours (it is great though). However, for those who are considering purchasing the PC version, be aware of the mandatory Games for Windows Live service. Apparently, there have been issues with this in the past with other games, but this is the first time I have had any direct experience with it--and I have to say, it is an intrusive service that actually hampers what would otherwise be a great game.

At boot up, the game asked me to create a Windows Live account. If I chose not to, the game would be unable to save. However, I went with it and created an account. This when problems started to kick in--the gamer profile would download, but then I got a message informing me that I needed to update the Games for Windows Live client. The first few times that I tried to update, it would get to about 90% before getting stuck.

I tried this several times, and after about an hour, it finally updated. I played the game for about 30 minutes, with the game saving my progress...or so I thought. A few days later, when I loaded up the game, my profile was still in the game, but my saved game had disappeared.

Today, I played the game for about two hours. I exited to the desktop and opened up the game to see if it saved--so far, so good. However, I still have no idea whether my Windows Live account was created successfully, because there have been several times that I have started up the game, only to be told that I cannot log into my profile. That, and I have little confidence that when I leave the game, my saved game will still be there.

This is a frustrating situation, because the game itself is so good.
