Goofs

After infecting Batman with his poisonous blood, Joker says he had also shipped some all over Gotham, possibly infecting even more people. By the game's end, Batman manages to cure himself, but it is never mentioned if the other people in Gotham managed to be cured as well. It is implied, however that the cure likely will be sent out to the other infected by way of mass producing the cure which is now within Batman's bloodstream. See more »

Crazy Credits

Finding the positive early pregnancy test next to Harley Quinn's costume unlocks an easter egg where Harley sings a rather chilling version of "Hush Little Baby" over the final seconds of the credits. See more »

My mind was blown
23 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

So I am a huge Batman villain fan. More so than is probably good for my health. So when I saw all the villain trailers that were being released, I got super amp. And once I saw all the perfect scores it was getting, I was even more excited. And did it live up to all the hype? 99.9% yes. The possible only flaw was that the campaign seems a bit too quick (took me around 12 hours to beat, without side missions). Other than that, it's more Batman butt kicking, and mind blowing plot lines. If you thought Inception played mind games, then this will blow you away. Not buying this would be a disservice to yourself. It's that good. And although I called the ending, it's like I said: I'm a freak. I was playing with my friend online when he got to the end, and he was freaking out and not knowing what was happening. It's. That. Big.
