    One of the only things I wished for with Arkham Asylum was the ability to use the Batmobile. Alas, it wasn't possible, but here it is.

    The Dark Knight Rises is a solid action game, with plenty of missions and a nice open-world map to explore. Camera and controls don't always work as they should, but it's a minor shortcoming.

    While the game isn't perfect, it's definitely a fun addition for all Batman fans. It's a great way to kill time before the movie.

    Overall, The Dark Knight Rises overcomes a few minor issues and provides fans with something worthy of the Batman name in a suitably shadowy Gotham playground.

    Like most Gameloft's titles, it's a small-scale rendition of a bigger console experience that's worth playing for all the collectibles, missions, and upgrades, despite several shortcomings.

    While The Dark Knight Rises doesn't quite live up to its cinematic namesake, Gameloft deserve credit for capturing the feel of the Arkham titles if not the depth and challenge. It's very true to the film without being a classic in its own right, so the so-called Nolanites will no doubt find something to appreciate here.

    If seeing The Dark Knight Rises has inspired you to put the cape back on, do yourself a favour and go back to either of Rocksteady's games instead. Because this one is wearing hockey pads.

    awesome graphics for mobile phone and tablet.I played both in ipad(friend of my) and in iphone. Is based on the film with some modification. You play as Bruce Wayne/Batman, you can drive the batpod and the batwing. I recommend to everyone who has the money to purchase that

    hope is lost
    faith is broken
    a fire will RISE by the movie

    Obviously, it doesn't stand a chance again Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham CIty. But thats not a fair comparison, you have to see it for what it is. For an iOS and Droid video game, it's pretty good. The graphics are surprisingly good, the open world is impressive especially for a mobile game, plenty of gadget upgrades, and the combat is pretty fun even if a bit repetitive. Collapse

    Graphics are good for mobile devices. The retelling of the story is simply not good enough - as one who have seen the film, the retelling of the story was just poorly done. Dialogues between characters are good for a Gameloft game. Combat is fun, but gets repetitive. Overall, a good go at a TDKR game with good graphics and some shining moments, but the retelling of the story and the repetition seriously ruins the fun for the game. Some will like it, but its not worth the $6.99 tag. Expand
