Story too short?

Is it me or was the Story mode too short.  I expected more villians and a longer story.

It was not too short.  It was perfect length.

It was just about perfect. Although I think 2 boss fights right at the end were a little too close maybe a bigger build up to Joker would have been nice.

I had a friend that beat it the day he got it, but he said he still wants to go back and collect.. the tapes or something? I dunno but it seems to have good replay value even if you beat cause he enjoyed it a lot.

The game is a good length but the pacing leading up to the final boss is terrible, it feels like there should have been a lot more game to it. You literally just walk through a door and its hey you should go fight the Joker. They could have added maybe another hour and another villain in there. Two-Face or Mr. Freeze would have been nice, get some more of the core villains in the game while still keeping with the overall feel of it.

I expected more villains too, but the length seemed fine. Although I certainly wouldn't complain if it were longer.

I haven't finished it yet (about to face a juiced-up Poison Ivy), but I actually like the fact that it doesn't ever drag. The game just goes and doesn't stop. As for the villains, half of me wants there to be more, the other half fears the roster would get too crowded and thus no one would get sufficient screen time.

Yeah, I have to say the length was about right.  It's longer than most games these days, and I wouldn't have wanted to see them squeeze in more villians, just for the sake of having them in the game.  Did we need random boss fights with Catwoman, Two Face or Penguin?  I'd rather see them given proper stories in a sequel rather than two minute cameos here.  
The game is worth playing through at least twice, the Riddler trophies extend the amount of time a fair bit and the challenges will keep you amused for quite a while too.  I think the length is perfect.

I think the length is just about right. Though I found it to be rather easy on the normal difficulty.

Not short, just lacked variety for me. Big room, take out bad guys, go here, big room, take out bad guys, fight a Titan. Yawn!! 
Still enjoyed the hell out of it, nut it could have been so much better. High hopes for the second instalment.

Don't get me wrong I loved the game. The pace of the story was very good. To me I wish there were still a few more villains.  I mean we did just go back to Arkham Asylum. Mr. Freeze was there in his cell covered in ice. He could have broke out. I mean the Joker did say he had a lot of surprises for Batman and if Harley Quinn  did not have a soft spot for Poison Ivy we would not have fought here. Remember she said that Poison Ivy was not on the list? I dunno all I can say about the game is: Great game, Great story, Great gameplay. Still felt a little short to me. Just my opinion. 
Oh and honestly. The joker was hidden thru the enire game. Then we just go into the Visitor Center and BAM there he is. Could have made it a little tougher to get to the Joker.

It was concise. You're not used to it because most game stories have filler and bullshit, and this game didn't, which made it a better game.
