    I really like Batman. I'm not a fanatic but it's almost obligatory for me to at least try some movie or game related to this hero. Nevertheless this game is bad. Oh, it's bad. And it's not about the assets - character models are fairly good as well as decent audio and animations. Fighting is also quite nice + you get to throw a batarang from time to time. What hurts is the game designI really like Batman. I'm not a fanatic but it's almost obligatory for me to at least try some movie or game related to this hero. Nevertheless this game is bad. Oh, it's bad. And it's not about the assets - character models are fairly good as well as decent audio and animations. Fighting is also quite nice + you get to throw a batarang from time to time. What hurts is the game design itself. I would recommend devs to a) test this app on casual gamers and b) write down or (better) draw a gameplay structure of this production... By combining those two elements I bet that something like this will come up:
    1. starting enthusiastic (graphics, cutscenes and all..)
    2. fighting, fighting, fighting -> dead
    3. why the f#$% there is no checkpoint and I have to start all over again?!
    4. fighting, fighting, fighting < OMG every enemy is 100% the SAME!>
    5. dying in a 6-staged batte and starting ALL OVER AGAIN! NOOO!

    Why is Arkham Lockdown a disappointment? Simple. It lacks everything that made the console Arkham games the greatest superhero games ever created. There is no engaging story to keep the player invested in the game, and it feels like a rushed set of fighting stages hastily thrown together. The minions are practically identical and the gameplay gets tiresome after the first half hour, unlikeWhy is Arkham Lockdown a disappointment? Simple.

The minions are practically identical and the gameplay gets tiresome after the first half hour, unlike Arkham City's unparalleled combat mechanics. In all honesty, while Asylum and City felt like large amounts of time, effort, and devotion were put into them, Lockdown feels like an easy money-maker. If you like Batman, buy this game just as an experiment. But for anyone else, Lockdown will be forever regarded as the Batman and Robin of Dark Knight apps.

    Although the concept of Batman: Arkham City Lockdown seems to be nothing more than an Infinity Blade-clone at first glance, the authentic Batman elements like gadgets, the music and costume amaze once again. It's a fun action game that'll keep you interested longer then you'll expect.

    Alas repetitive fighting holds this back. [March 2012, p.98]

    Not a very convincing game. It is always attractive to become Batman in a videogame, and it is quite a good adaptation, but its gameplay falls limited and repetitive soon.
