What is this game?

Is it basically Infinity Blade with Batman? Is is basically MK with Batman?

And while we're on the topic, how did this happen? How did NetherRealm do a Batman iOS game?

Well. At least it's harder to totally eff up the online of an iOS Batman game... right?

It's WB milking the Arkham franchise for money.

Arkham City for iPhone and iPad..

DC Comics,Rocksteady and NetherRealm studios are owned by WB..So its not a big problem to make a Batman game..

ED boon is big fan of Batman :)

I am not complaining... Batman is the greatest comic book hero and having more great games around that character is well appreciated. I don't think this qualifies for 'milking' since we have only gotten 2 great batman console games in a little over 2 years. In that time other franchises have literally sucked the tit dry!

I can agree with this lol...i MIGHT want to get this, but fruit ninja, plants vs zombie, and angry birds pretty much all the games i need to keep me busy on my phone.

It's basically infinity blade in the Batman universe. Its simple, but it's a lot of fun. Only thing I don't like so far is that there is not iCloud saves with it like in Infinity Blade.

I'm glad you get the iPad and iPhone version at the same time, but what's the point if the saves don't sync?

It's also not quite as good as Infinity Blade. There's not as many options, and the combat isn't as fluid as it should be. Still a fun game though, and it's one of the best looking iOS games out there.

Its just the start of milking the franchise.

It's a less responsive and less impressive version of Infinity Blade that is worth maybe $2 (it's selling for $7) unless you're a Batman Batman Batman Batmaniac.

Hopefully NetherRealm adds iCloud syncing, but so far it's not used by many games to make that experience of switching devices seamless. Infinity Blade 2 does this now, and it's really nice.
