Repent and believe in the Gospel, for it is the power to save to those who believe.
My only (small) complaint is the need for a Windows Live account to play Asylum. Not terrible, but annoying if you didn't have one. I hate registering for anything extra when I'm playing what is essentially an offline game. Still, it was a small bump in the road, and not worth knocking off any stars, especially considering the 2-for-1 pricetag. Big thumbs up.
The second major criticism I have is of the game's mechanics. The combat system seems to not give enough control to the player. It's a basic strike and block system with combos and methods of evading attacks. In comparison to most fighting games, eg. Assassins creed, that's normal, but it pales in comparison with the combat in my personal favorite way to play Batman: DC Universe Online, which utilizes a rock-paper-scissors combat system involving combos and containing dodges.
The only potential deal-killer in both of these games is the integrated and required extension, Games for Windows Live. Despite creating and connecting with an online account, I could not save my progress across multiple PCs. Apparently, this feature cannot be avoided if you play on the PC, and the more I researched GFWL, the more rants and rages by users I uncovered. Thankfully, this is the only game I find worth buying that carries the GFWL parasite.
One final negative thought. The boss battles in Arkham Asylum with Scarecrow felt like a 2.5 dimensional platformer, and could have been improved upon.
Now for the good stuff. The multi batarang was fun and innovative. The detective mode was easy to switch in and out of and could be used like xray vision much like in Dishonored, Deus Ex HR, and Blacklight Retribution. The DLC's are all included in the GOTY editions (with especially nice ones on Arkham City), The voice acting is decent, the scary scenes are genuinely bone-chilling, the the cryptographic sequencer is realistic feeling, like the hacking in DEHR, not just a simple "hack kit", and the gadgets are believable.
Overall, worth a playthrough if you like batman, stealth gameplay, or if it's on sale. But is you want to play on multiple PCs, crave pure combat, or want a multi-ended story, look elsewhere.
This Game is a Classic.
Heaven forbid you try to install your game to more than one device and play them at different times (not simultaneously). Or if you have hardware failure within 30 days and you have to reinstall. Or anything else that might happen (ie., you change your motherboard, you change your video card, you reinstall your OS and update your firmware, etc.). WB uses a lifetime limit on how many times you can reinstall.
So what does that have to do with this pack? Amazon Digital Video Games guarantees you a key that works. If yours stops working because WB is stupid, contact Amazon Customer Service and they guarantee you another one that works. That's worth buying at Amazon DVG versus anywhere else because nowhere else does this.
