  Most over-rated game of all time?

| | See all NealDuncan's reviews (8)

Don't get me wrong, it's probably the best Batman game ever made but thats not saying much. Dull repetitive gameplay.

It has some strong pros
- Lovely graphics
- Nice user-friendly combat system
- Fantastic voice acting

But beware the cons
- Extremely repetitive
- Mindnumbingly dull in places

Don't believe the hype.

  This game is crazy

This batman game is my favourite game because it's so unique and there is no game like it and usually comic book games are not very good but this is the greatest game of all time.

  Couldn't have done a better job

I didn't know what to expect buying a batman game, as I didn't really look into it before I bought it, but it's brilliant. It surpasses every expectation I had.
The gamplay is exceptional and the story line is really well thought out.
A must buy for under a tenner.

  Pleasantly surprised!

This sort of game really isn't my thing but I ended up hooked on this game from beginning to end!

I think it is a seriously under rated title that deserve to have won the amount of awards it did, the graphics are awesome, the game it self is well thought out and is like a movie!

Gone are the days where all super hero titles are light and fluffy with no substance...this game sets the bar!

It's dark and very clever well worth it at the price you can get it for.

If you enjoy a hack and slash type game then this is right up your alley as the fights are brilliant as you can do all sorts of different combos, I normally only play shooters or FIFA!

I will be getting the other one with no hesitation what's so ever!

This game = WIN

  Batman Begins here!!!!

Great game with out of this world graphics. Along with a gripping storyline and top notch voice acting. Enter the dark underworld through arkham asylum and fight all Batmans greatest foes. The combat system is great too with new combos and upgrades throughout the game. Its a mst buy for any fan of this Capped crusader

  very addictive

Well...what can i say? this plays like a movie from start to finish and really should be turned into a movie as this is better than the recent batman movies and to say that means that this is something special that you should not miss out on.

  A credit to the Batman Genre

I am not someone who enjoys playing a game through and through to collect items, but this game had me hooked so bad that after renting and completing it I went out and bought it so I could complete it again... It's incredibly addictive. The storyline is awesome and will have you hooked from the beginning.
If you are not a Batman lover this game is still amazing (may even turn you into a lover of the bat- Like me!)

  As it should be

This is Batman done as it should be. Tight controls, great story and acting and stays interesting from start to finish.

  The Best Comic-to-film-to-Game title ever, bar NONE

I played the demo for this game from the XBlive network a few weeks before the full game was released, and reviews were starting to surface that the full game was a bit special. I wasn't taken 100% by the demo for some reason, but still enjoyed it enough to sit down and play through a few times, so I thought I'd give the full title a go.

I'm so glad I did. What followed was a good week's worth of gaming brilliance; the perfect balance of Batman-fiction blended in with solid gameplay, an amazing amount of depth (as well as the puzzle and platform element of the game you can deliberately SCARE your enemies, rather than attack them directly, seriously, I've left guards randomly shooting shadows because they thought they saw something there). The enemies are incredibly varied, the story is excellent and there's tons of secrets to keep you busy for weeks after you finish it.

I'm actually considering buying it again, just to keep it as a title that I'd go back to every now and again. A worthy contender for "Best Game of 2009", very few other titles come close to this. Buy it now.

  Game of the year

never mind all the call of duty hype ignore it and buy this, so what if its short thats why they put collectibles in the game and the other game mode to make it longer. this is the single best game i have ever played it's a masterpiece there isn't a word in my vocabulary to describe how good this game is it is simply pure genious the effort put into everything can only be appreciated more and more as you play it. I found that this game has superb replayability unlike most games and the story is just terrific every detail is perfect to the letter i have nothing bad to say about this game and all i can say is that it deserved the game of the year award 3 times over because no game can even touch this for gameplay, story, combat, brains,innovation it's music to my ears when i hear the name of this game so buy it or miss out on one of the single best games ever!!!!
