Trivia

The creators of the game decided that in order to have the voice acting top-notch, they'd use seasoned Batman actors from Batman: The Animated Series (1992). Kevin Conroy reprised his role as Batman in the game; as did Mark Hamill, who voiced The Joker; and Arleen Sorkin, who provided the voice of Harley Quinn. See more »

Goofs

After defeating Bane, Batman activates the Batmobile, still parked in Arkham North. When Bane surfaces and tries to kill Batman, we see the Batmobile barreling down a hill towards him. This means the car would somehow have to go through two locked doors, which appear in one piece and still locked later in the game, in order to make the journey to Arkham West near the water where Batman and Bane were.

Game of the year
3 October 2012 | by (Deadwood) – See all my reviews

Or, perhaps, of the decade. When I first saw a few trailers, I wondered will I be ever able to play this game? It looks so good, so demanding, so well done... I was wrong, fortunately. This game is an amazing experience, without a shadow of doubt, one of the best games ever to come out in the world of video games. Paul Dini wrote this amazing piece of art, from comic book mythos and he adapted it in video game.

Mow, the game looks terrific, graphics are outstanding, the gameplay is easy and well adapted to any player, but not that easy if you are willing to try hard game. Great choice of voice actors Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as Joker and Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn, from the old animated TV series. Other well-known voice actors as Steve Blum, Fred Tatasciore, Cree Summer, Adrienne Barbeau and Tom Kane are also here, and they all did a great job.

The Batman character looks amazing, the whole concept art is good, you can easily notice that some things were taken from the films, from Nolan's and Burton's for example, and it's all mixed pretty good here. Playing with Batman is cool, you feel like you are Batman, you are doing things that he is doing in comics, or films. You also have locked bonus stages. It's pretty cool to use batman to beat the living crap out of anyone who stands in your way. Get this game and try it. You'll love it!
