    It's definitely a strong "fix", reminiscent of the single-player joy that we experienced throughout Arkham City, but Harley Quinn does not include some fascinating set piece or an essential scene that will ascend the general experience. [August 2012]

    The story of Harley Quinn's vengeance adds nothing to everything that's been said in done in Arkham City. If you're having a greed attack over the $10 price tag of this DLC, well… just ignore it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Harley Quinn's Revenge takes place during an unspecified time frame from the death of the Joker. Batman never is the same since Talia's death, and the death of the Joker. As a result, you get a sense he finds it to be his responsibility to bring Harley Quinn to justice, even though she has a hot vendetta against Batman. The high point of this campaign is playing as Robin through most of it, in a quest to rescue Batman from being captured. If you never purchased the DLC for Robin to play on the challenge maps, you are getting a real treat with the speed of Robin during combat, and his unique abilities. Everything felt like the Batman universe, however my excitement was cut short by the actual length of the campaign. If you play it straight through, it's about an hour to an hour and a half depending on how you play the game. It was pretty cut and dry, and there isn't an option for free roaming afterward. The only challenge (i.e. anything comparable to the Riddler challenges) are destroying these "Harley Quinn" balloons (similar to the Joker balloons if you did the Riddler challenge.) There isn't as much free roam, and it is pretty linear compared to the normal Arkham City campaign. Honestly I expected this, as it was only $10, but it was worth it for that extra taste of Batman story that I have been craving in anticipation for the next game. Expand

    Did you like the main campaign in Arkham City? Yes? Well then, this DLC takes everything that was good about the original and stuffs it into a 1 hour package. Seriously, its every good set-piece moment one after another. Its fun, although I would have enjoyed it more if it was a bit longer and had a slower pace. Oh, and robin's basically the same as Batman just with different gadgets. Expand

    The HQR DLC feels like it's been made by an entire different team. Everything that was great about the original game is being thrown away and we're left with a very linear experience, a lack of interesting puzzle elements, bad story and voice-acting, predictable ending and a complete dumb down of the characters. The game play remains the same but even though the new playable character (Robin) has a nice addition of gadgets, they are not used to their full potential due to pretty poor level design.
    As far as time goes it will take anywhere between 45 minutes to 1 hour and a half depending on how fast you decide to run it and apart from a bunch of balloons you can search and pop there's nothing that should slow you down or make you want to replay it.

    I got this while it was on sale on Steam, and I'm so glad I didn't pay full price for it. The expansion is about 1-2 hours long, with not many achievements. Worse still, if you missed any of the Harley baloons you have to replay the entire thing from the start to get the achievement for popping them all. The quality is fairly average, with nothing particularly interesting or new compared to the original Arkham City, but the content that is there isn't awfully dissapointing- just not anything which improves or adds anything to the game. I would not recommned this DLC unless you can get it for a stupidly low price. Expand

    Don't bother. Massive rip off. £7.99 for 2 hour's worth of DLC. Barely deserves a zero rating. I shall not be buying any WB games in the future. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I finished this DLC in somewhat like 70 minutes. They made it almost as short as the Catwoman DLC which was free for me. Whilst the story hardly made any progress at all, Batman treats Robin worse than a dog despite him saving his life, which felt weird to me. Maybe because he's hardened after the Joker's death, but it felt wrong nonetheless. In the end I didn't take anything with me after finishing HQR. Some side missions in the original game are even better than this. Maybe my expectations were too high. Expand
