Goofs

At the beginning Harley Quinn set charges to an elevator and causes it to crash down while being pulled up by the counter weight. If the elevator cables were cut (as they clearly were) the elevator comes down, but so should also the counter weight. See more »

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.

Now, 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. We have a big return 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. Overall voice acting was amazing.

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. The story is solid and is not just another comic book episode. It also have some pretty dark and scary tones. Also, a really good soundtrack. 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. And to mention the usage of all Bat-gadgets. Get this game and try it. You'll love it!
