    Just a competent arcade game and a dire soundtrack. [Christmas 2011, p.97]

    Like the periodic table? You're in luck, because Mercury HG is flipping obsessed with it. [Christmas 2011, p.109]

    The repetitious enemies and rail-line progression make this occasionally thumping adventure little more than an aerobic ghost train. [Christmas 2011, p.109]

    As solid as the combat is, there are numerous contemporaries that offer as much challenge and fun with much more visual flair, and without horrendous loading times.

    Between the travel sickness, the lurid colours and the nightmare-inducing soundtrack, one level is the playable equivalent of food poisoning. Another over-used puzzle has you rolling around collecting stars as time ticks away in a manner horribly reminiscent of a smartphone app that would cost around £17 less.

    It quickly becomes repetitive nonsense. [Apr 2012, p.97]

    A bit inconsistent. [Apr 2012, p.115]

    Give me the option of a night in with the first season's Blu-ray boxset or this mostly shabby spin-off and I'd go HD Sean Bean chivalry every time.

    As a whole, this is a step back for the series and an insult to those who know that Vita and Gotham deserve more. This is not the Batman game that you need.

    This courts motion sickness with a bottle of wine and a mixtape. [Aug 2012, p.107]

    The turn-based combat is swift and (overly) simple. [Aug 2012, p.117]
