It's Enjoyable Enough but Not Great. Worthwhile if On Sale

Summary: I was a little dissapointed to be honest. I played Arkham City and was pleasantly surprised by it and really enjoyed it. I loved the open world, moving around, the Joker challenges and more. It was very immersive and the gameplay was very smooth. My complaint then is a little wierd I suppose. I feel that this game is just more of the same. Now I know what you're thinking, you loved Arkham City, why wouldn't you want more of the same?

Summary: The game came when expected. I loaded the game fine but when I went to play the game it would not allow me until all the updates were installed. The updates are going at a snails pace, I figure next week I might be able to play this game.
Summary: Meh, kinda let down. I probably should have waited for it to drop in price (which it is now). It's basically more of the same, with only minor additions to Arkham City. If you liked Arkham City and Asylum, you'll probably like this, too, just don't expect anything too different. The challenge stages can be done playing as Deathstroke, which is pretty cool, and there are some new gadgets to use.
Summary: Upon my initial play through, about halfway through, I couldn't help but wonder why this game got so much hate. Yes, it's repetitive. Yes, the story's not great. Yes, it copies virtually everything from Arkham City (even half of the map). Even so, it was very entertaining, and fun to be the Batman again, pummeling criminals and swooping around a pre-disaster Gotham.

Summary: Decent game, yet they obviously just stole resources from the previous games. This one is also a lot more glitchy than the other two, and the combat doesn't flow quite as well. Thankfully we will be getting the original game design team for the next game.
I'm an absolute fan of the Batman game series, but not so much this time.

Summary: The game is really average, considering it's predecessors. The story line is mediocre and definitely is out of context with the other games....considering it's a prequel. It's also suffers from "stupid ways to extend the game-itis". Hopefully I don't release any spoilers. Shaking a virtual floor is one thing, but outright changing the camera angle several times for no reason during a battle is not nice.
