I wanna pick up batman tomorrow but I was wondering if it might not be a waste of money seeing as there haven't been any reviews and in Australia the price is cheaper then a usual new game.
I would kill for a dead or alive Batman game
Reviews will be coming on day of release which is friday. This game wont be a game changer but it will probably be a pretty god damn good game.
I'm guessing 4 stars/8 out of 10; great game but a bit derivative of it's 2 previous installments.
It seems like a bit of a tacked-on end of generation game along the lines of Gears of War: Judgment or God of War: Ascension. It'll probably be pretty solid, but I doubt that it's going to do anything all that mindblowing.
That being said, it's been two years since Arkham City, so I wouldn't mind some more Batman.
I was half hoping that title meant "Batman Dead or Alive".
Or you forgot the "T" and meant Batman DOTA.
Shit, Batman (or DC in general) DOTA could probably work - given that there are so many characters. Actually, what about Green Lantern DOTA :o
@beachthunder: DC MOBA, YOU SAY?! http://www.giantbomb.com/infinite-crisis/3030-42065/
Oh man, Dan's reviewing it. He's been pretty harsh with some certain reviews of his games as of late.
Also from the looks of it, it's probably not going to be awful that's for sure. Might not be as mind-blowing but it'll probably be pretty solid. I'm gonna call it now that the averages are gonna be a 7-9/10 or a 4/5.
@moky01: Here is a review. I've read articles from the site before. It seems reliable, but you should take it with a grain of salt:
Truth be said, personally I never had great expectations about the game.
@jeust: Honestly I've had my doubts about the game but that review seems awfully vague to be trusted, it seems like it's a review based on other people's impression and the information that has come out so far rather than the actual game. I could have written that review and included all the same information, which is a little weird considering I haven't played it. I've heard of a few new mechanics and things that have been shuffled up that I think a reviewer would at least touch on especially for a game apparently this generic.
Honestly I think there will be quite a few reviews that reflect the sentiment of this one in a way (more of the same, kind of like the treyarch/infinity ward situation used to be) but I think it's best to wait until tomorrow than trust this rather suspect source.
@moky01: I can't speak for anyone else, but the reason why I'm not excited for this one is because 1.) It's not made by Rocksteady and by an unproven studio, 2.) There's not a whole lot of apparent improvements/changes to the Arkham formula and 3.) It hasn't been that long since the last game (granted, there was also a two-year gap between Arkham Asylum and Arkham City).
I'm actually finding the game incredibly boring... The game only unlocked today on steam and I've managed to clock maybe an hour or so but man, it really is just more of the same. It's probably just me but this time around the dialogue just feels off and any comedic lines are cringeworthy. It suffers from the same city issues as SRIV where it all just looks the same and even now I can remember playing through similar looking areas in Arkham City.
I dunno if I'll be going back to this one but I sure am glad I picked it up for so cheap using vouchers...
It's definitely more of the same. It all right, but not quite as good as Asylum or City. The lack of polish, attention to detail and cut corners are quite evident.
Right now i'm plagued with a bug making it impossible to glide kick and hence glide kick into instant take down either.
