The 1st installment. I was a little late on the whole Batman series. Better late than never. I just finished this one when I received Batman Arkham City. What can I say that hasn't already been said? It's a great game!!!

  Very slick.

I'm a World of Warcraft head and the only other game to distract me recently was the brilliant GTA IV. Other games I've bought in the last few years I've installed, got bored of very quickly, uninstalled and loaded Warcraft again. I fancied another distraction so I bought Batman because it was so cheap and the reviews were good. It did not disappoint. I normally skip the intro to get straight in to the game but I watched this intro twice! Very atmospheric game and the graphics are very good. The voice acting is also top notch. I even enjoyed just walking about because of the graphics; the way the camera pans and the way Batman looks so cool and menacing and the way his cape flows around behind. Game play is great as well, easy controls, the combat sequences are good fun and satisfying. I was just hugely impressed as soon as the game had loaded. Good stuff!

  At £5 a must buy!!!

Got this delivered on friday and a brilliant game for less than the price of a portion of Fish and Chips. Excellent graphics and gameplay. Buy it you and won't be dissapointed, especially at this price!!!!

  Buy it!!!

If there was a 10 star rating I'd give this game it. The graphics are fantastic, the story line excellent, the audio brilliant, and the difficulty just right.

If you don't like this game, especially as its a fiver, then you really just don't like games.

Wish every game was this well thought through and executed!!!

  Best Game Ever

There's nothing I can say about this game that hasn't been said 100 times before. I own the Collectors Edition on PS3 as well as this PC version. If you have been sitting on the fence wondering about this game I HIGHLY suggest you get it. Amazing characters, Blockbuster Story. Fantastic Graphics and to top it all off. A REALLY REALLY FUN game to play.

Perfect. The graphics and texturing on this game are flawless absolute perfection on max settings. I have a mid range gaming rig and it plays flawless.
Gameplay can feel a little awkward at times but having full xbox controller support is a lovely touch. Saying that with a little practise the play does become quite intuitive and is a joy mostly. Which gaming should be right??
It just makes you wonder why so many other games look so bad and run so poorly, alot of these programmers work with xbox right so why not pc as they are basiocally both microsoft. I dont get it.

Presentation of this game is the best of any game by quite a long way. It really is quite special with cinamatic moments which you would expect from such a game and a wide variety of stunning characters with humor and grit and some quite scary!!. Quite gritty and a dark in places you really get that batman feeling.

But back to my original point in that so many other games just do not run smoothly or look or play great. If a game can be made this perfect why cant other modern titles, which bite off more than they can chew.
I play fps and sims and rpg's and this has revitalised my interest in PC games. Hope crysis 2 and deux ex human evolution continue the trend.

  it's in ITA???

Simply superb. Quality attention to detail. Good graphics. Smooth gameplay. Interesting story.
You really fell like YOU are Batman,
Combat system is good - easy to use, but tough to master. When you start stringing combos together, and the sound effects go "whooomp" when you land punches, and Batman is taking on 20 guys at a time - cool!
When you hang upside down from the ceiling in the shadows and grab a guy and string him up - awesome!
I am Batman!
