The game disc lacked the files to download the game.

Summary: I was excited about finally buying a Batman game, especially one so highly suggested, but it turned out to be pretty bad. When I got it, I had the flue so I waited to download it, and when I eventually got to sticking the disc into my computer and eagerly watch as the progress bar got to 3/4 way done on disc 1, it stopped. After seeking tech support that was rather vague and didn't much help, I turned to a friend who diagnosed the problem.
Summary: Not the newest machine in the world, but my boys play other games without issues and have installed various ones. 4core, 8gb memory and plenty of disk. Unable to install this game after 3-4 tries. Even uninstalled a bunch of stuff (norton, Visual Studio...) and can't get the thing to install. Always fails on disk two about 3/4 the way through. At that point we start getting errors reading the disk. I have two DVD drives and tried both.
Summary: The game doesn't save properly, if you don't have a windows live account. Which is near impossible to get working on Windows 8. So I strongly suggest against buying it if you have that version of windows. This is an amazing game, but don't get it on the pc if you can avoid it.
Summary: Wait Wait Wait.... This game doesn't save progress. I have been to the forums and they all say the same thing, "Set up a offline account with Windows Live". That is not working for me. Please Game Maker dump the third party game saving, it is a bad idea. We just want to play, not setup another account with some company. What happens when their servers go out, when they no longer support the game, when they go out of business.
Summary: The game is very entertaining. It has impressive graphics, a very unique fighting style as well as an amazing story line. However because of the mess of setting up a windows live account, connecting it to the game and downloading your windows live account to your computer and the horrible mess of frustration that consists of I must insist that no one ever buy this game for PC. In fact I will never buy a windows live game again.
Summary: This is a really fun game, but it won't cooperate with my system. Windows Live MUST work on your machine or there is no way to save the game. Windows Messenger broke for me a couple years ago, and now I'm fishing around the internet trying to fix it.
Excerpt: Today, my girlfriend and I celebrate our 1st Year Anniversary and being the sweet and loving girlfriend that she is, she decided to let me choose a PS3 game that she would buy for me. I chose this game, because I had been looking to get this for quite sometime now but never got around to doing so, lucky for me, my timing was right as the GOTY Edition has already been released, this means for little extra amount of money, I get bonus content for free!
