This game gets a lot of crap, but I love it. But it's heart is in the right place. Hope to see more batman games in the future and other dc comics videos games too.
I replay all the batman games since it came out.
What does disappoint is playing 10 hours (felt like 3, game time flies by) and crashing 9 times only to finally end up with a corrupt save game. All play time lost. If a game company is going to use Autosave (I understand this can be used to promote "game drama", but since Arkham saves anytime you earn exp why not allow us to make our own saves?) they should at least create multiple versions. Save every time you get exp like I said and then every 10m, or 20m, maybe up to the player. I'd rather lose 10 minutes of gameplay than 10 hours.
So I started again a few days later, played four hours and lost it all again. I'm done with this game until they patch it.
If you're hardcore about it you can certainly usb memory stick save yourself everyone once in awhile, rather a pain in the behind in my opinion but it's a safe workaround if you can put up with that nonsense from a $60 game you bought expecting the same polished work as the previous two titles were.
The game itself is fun, new villains and stuff looks like it could be interesting if I ever get to them and I enjoy the new leveling options (same basic stuff to buy, just set up differently, you start off with more tools/abilities at your disposal than the previous titles). Seems like there are less 'hook points' in the city for you to grapple to, even though the city looks like it should work the same, or maybe since its 5 years or so earlier his grapnel doesn't reach as far, so you end up gliding more before you can find a new place to boost yourself along and back up into the skyline. Seems to make travel slightly slower although the auto travel (to areas you must unlock, not hard, kind of fun to have a reason to beat up thugs anyhow) helps you loadscreen your way across the city and certainly makes up for the slower block by block travel in this game. Too bad most of my freezes came from using this feature....
One of the biggest problems with the story was its length. I felt like it rushed the last third of the story. It did not seem like the story flowed well compared with the beginning of the game.
The gameplay is more or less played the same way as the previous Arkham games. One issue I found was a delay in registering the player's commands/input. You may press the block button, but it would not register until after you get hit. There is also some issues with the direction of attacks(you may want to kick to the left, but he kicks upward instead). These are things I did not see in the previous games.
Another big problem has nothing to do with the plot or gameplay, but the technical problems the game has. Even though this is a AAA game, you will run into bugs and glitches. I had to restart the game because a cutscene was suppose to appear when you get a certain boss' health bar down to 25%. The screen went black and never showed the cutscene(I waited for 5 minutes). After restarting the game(go to Xbox dashboard and enter the game again) and finishing the boss battle (again), the cutscene played.
I also ran into a problem where Batman left the level. All of the enemies and the room I was in disappeared and all that was left was a gray environment with Batman in it(if you leap, you move further down the screen). You have to restart the game to break out of it(these problems have been shown in all versions of this game). While I can overlook the story's issues, having game-breaking bugs appear without a patch presents a major problem(it does not help that the developer has decided to not fix these problems and work on cranking out DLC instead).
If you want to see how the story plays out, I would suggest watching a walkthrough or a Let's Play on Youtube (or use wikipedia). If you absolutely have to play it and you don't want to watch it off Youtube, then pick up a used version or any version for the lowest possible price.
