I'm liking the game a bit more, mainly when I'm doing missions.  So, I guess take out the city portion and I"m fine Tongue

Impressions: I Am The Goddamn Batman!! Superb presentation. Tremendous graphics. All characterization seems rock solid. The game just drips Bad-Assery! That's from an hour and half of gamiing.

Started playing on hard, and perhaps I made a mistake, as the thugs on the street are repeatedly kicking my ass. I just started to discover my gadgets--Batarangs to the face for call! Yipee!! Unlocked the Catwoman content right away but havent tried it. Detective vision is neato. You discover all sorts of fun stuff when you use it.

Will play more tonight!

I'm playing on Normal and get beaten more than I'd like.  Still, that's only, like, one in ten fights and usually I can pinpoint what I've done wrong.

I have to say that while I preferred the tighter gameplay of AA, I still keep coming back to this game.  As in I'm barely playing anything else.  I looked at my progress on the various side missions and I was surprised at how far along I already was.  I know I've put a ton of time into this, but it doesn't feel like it.

It's kind of like AA was something to be placed on a pedestal with a pin spot shining on it while a choir sings in the background, and this game should just be on a slightly lower pedestal next to it with diffused track lighting.  No choir necessary, but it deserves its place in the museum.

I agree with a lot of you,while i was overwhelmed at the beginning,the game is really starting to gel on me


Question:i keep getting Hugo Strange over the radio say things like "Protocol 10 will commence in 9 hrs"

all very well,but i have been mainly messing about in the city and not done much of the main story,last thing i did was
Spoiler for Hiden:
go looking for Freeze,who wasn't there but i have found out Penguin has him in the Museum,not been there yet though

my game progress is 10%(overall game progress= 7%)

anyway,after that again i was just messing about fighting a few thugs and looking for Riddler Trophies when Hugo Strange came on the radio again and said "Protocol 10 will commence in 7hrs"
Now i hadn't done any story related missions for a good 30 or so minutes....so have i really got a time limit here?



oh,and i really love the interrogation of the last man standing to get the Riddler secrets for that area,pretty cool idea

No, those radio messages count down according to story progress, not the passage of time.  You can spend as much time as you like running around solving riddles and beating down random street thugs without hitting a time limit.

Actually the big guy in the basement took me a while too until I realized what to do. Then it was a five minute fight. That one's deceptive. Actually the one I hated the most was in the Chamber of the Demon (you'll know when you're there) because it's a forced flying mission. That was when I realized how much I sucked at dive bombing so it forced me to get the timing right on it. After that sequence flying has been less of an issue.

Overall after about 12 hours of play, I'm in love. The learning curve is way steep and they don't necessarily hold your hand from the start. The result is disorientation ala my earlier post. The distractions are still overwhelming in number, but if you focus on the story then you can focus on the story and that's that. Didn't get that at first but I totally get it now.  Playing through again on New Game+ is going to pwn. I haven't done the challenge maps yet but I waited to do those in the first game and I'll wait this time.

The number of characters in this is just insane, for the record. But I'm jonsing to play it right now because it's just so damn much fun.

Spoiler for end boss:

I didn't mind the big battle with Mista Jay - the trains wouldn't hit me, and using the quickfire for electricity on the hammer helped clear stuff out. If you use the stun on the big guy (B,B,B on 360) you get on his back and beat the crap outta everyone.

CF was a bigger PITA - the first fight was easy, the only part of the second that was the damned hammer swing, and the third part was refreshing because it reverts to a more normal combat. I died once on the second battle - then they gave me a hint on the loading screen - get CF to roll into the explosives in the corners of the room for a quick win.

I watched the whole thing on youtube. It's incredibly short, or at least feels that way compared to AA.

Hmmm...I'm starting to get that feeling about the main storyline.   I'm at 26 percent on that according to stats.  I think I need to veer off the beaten path and pursue some side missions for a while.

I have just finished(at least the story anyway)

it was....BRILLIANT!!!! icon_biggrin

Played on Normal
its hard to judge how long it took me because i was distracted a lot and did a lot of side missions and getting collectables

gonna go for the rest of the Riddler trophies etc,but i have a feeling i wont have a chance,some of the ones i came across looked rock solid to get


I would say Storywise,AA and AC are about the same,depends on how much other stuff you do,and if you haven't got the Catwoman DLC,then its about an hour at most shorter(again storywise)

I sent them money for a copy on behalf of you ibdoomed.  I even included a letter telling them not to bother sending me the copy since I'm not playing it, but that I thought they should have the money since you like their game so much.

I must have missed the reason why you are boycotting them.  Is it because they did this Catwoman DLC thing to supposedly combat used games sales but then apparently struck a deal with Gamestop to include codes with used copies?  Or was it something else?

That's pretty shifty too but I was more referring to delaying the PC version but not the consoles, and not only selling more copies of the console versions for practically double the price of the PC version, but then double dipping because people are too impatient to wait but want the best version. This level of greed belongs in a special place in hell with the child molesters.

They haven't denied it. If it's for bug fixing, then why wouldn't they delay the consoles to fix their bugs too? In fact, wouldn't the opposite be easier? It's far easier to patch the PC version than the console version.

I must need to use smileys more, there's very little anger involved in any of my posts. If anything, it's frustration about how things could have been better if someone hadn't dropped the ball or whatever.

That's pretty shifty too but I was more referring to delaying the PC version but not the consoles, and not only selling more copies of the console versions for practically double the price of the PC version, but then double dipping because people are too impatient to wait but want the best version. This level of greed belongs in a special place in hell with the child molesters.


You have proof that this is why they delayed the PC version how exactly?

They haven't denied it. If it's for bug fixing, then why wouldn't they delay the consoles to fix their bugs too? In fact, wouldn't the opposite be easier? It's far easier to patch the PC version than the console version.

They also haven't denied my theory that they delayed the PC version because God told them to, doesn't make it true.

Bugs can appear on one platform and not on another.  Happens every day.

Xbox version - one platform only
PS3 version - one platform only
PC version - thousands, if not millions, of variations

I've been playing this and really like it but I just suck at using the controller. I spent 30 mins doing the second VR mission and can't actually do the 3rd yet. While my brain knows what to do my fingers won't comply. Finding it very frustrating

I don't know about the ps3 version but the xbox version has numerous bugs, you would think they'd fix them. It's not like they didn't have time.

Did you finish it already?   icon_eek

I watched the whole thing on youtube. It's incredibly short, or at least feels that way compared to AA.

You crazy.

But why leave the bugs in the xbox version?

Just checked the forums, it's not just the xbox version, it's both.

are they show stopping bugs?  if so, I haven't heard about them.  most games are patched for bugs after release if they don't make the game unplayable.  the pc bugs may be show stoppers.

I did the first 4 okay,but the advanced ones,i can't do for the life of me,there is one where you have to leap off a ledge,glide over and dive bomb to the first,go through the second and then double back on yourself(which makes me try and turn upside down),so after the second hoop,i have failed

System freezes, text overwriting text by the hint system, the hint system (for moves like press BBA for something) doesn't stop when you turn off hints in the options, and loss of button function and movement stick but camera control sticks still work are the ones I've heard about.

If we're still talking about the game, I'm liking it a lot. Adored the first one. Just finished up the Zsasz side mission last night. The advanced AR training bits are pretty tough and the Riddler stuff is tricky and well crafted/concealed. I can take or leave the Catwoman missions, but it's nice to play a slightly different, if not mostly similar, experience.

I got all the Riddler content in first game, and I fear I may lose some hair trying to complete all the Riddler ones in this game. But I'm loving every minute if it so far.

So you've only "heard about" them or have you experienced any yourself?  Cause I've played through the entire game and most of the side quests on the Xbox360 (probably 25+ hours), and I haven't had any bugs at all.  The only thing I've seen in your list is the subtitle text, but that's not really a bug.

If I were you I'd be careful of making it sound like this game is buggy for everyone when it's clearly not.  The main NeoGAF thread does not have many reports of people thinking the game is buggy.

I've been playing for about 4 days straight and I haven't seen any obvious bugs either.

No bugs for me (360) at 30+ hours of playtime.  I've also heard that at the end of a rainbow there is a leprechaun carrying a pot of gold. That's why I boycott St. Patricks day
