Nothing improved from previous attempts. 4 player co-op rocks, and horde mode still stands strong. Beast mode was not as fun as I hoped it would be though. Overall a pretty good game and worth the bucks for the single player alone.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.6Nov 4, 2011I love this game! I can't even begin to think of how much time I have put into Arkham City already, and there is plenty more to do! The openI love this game! I can't even begin to think of how much time I have put into Arkham City already, and there is plenty more to do! The open environment, great storyline, rich content. This game has it all, and is so much fun. The only gripe I have is that if I am downloading something and start this game, when the download is finished in the background, you will get bounced back to the main menu. Other than that it rocks! Possibly Game of the Year in my book.… Expand

It is just alright. Actually after playing Nightwing I came to the conclusion he is kind of boring. His fighting moves are not as dynamic and aesthetically pleasing to watch as Batman or Catwoman, and he doesn't talk. Not a word. If they released this content for $2 or $3 then maybe it would be worth it for the new environments to beat down baddies... but not for $7. After this I probably will not pick up the Robin pack coming out in a few weeks unless it gets rave reviews from those who buy it.… Expand

After playing it for awhile, I realized it wasn't good so I just wanted this game to be something other than the garbage it was turning out to be. I knew about the graphics and animation and dated game mechanics, but none of that bothers me unless it is fun. I figured it would be good for a few laughs... it wasn't. I didn't laugh once. Jr. High School bathroom humor riddles this trash with the frequency that was really quite insulting. Did the developers really think I would find this type of humor funny? After the second tasteless abortion joke I turned this junk off and traded it in.
With all of the anticipation, all the wait, all of the expectation, it really is mind boggling on where this whole thing went wrong. I think what upset me most is that they took a character that was funny with his macho bravado and quick one liners, and turned him into an unappealing jerk. I am not even interested in a Duke Nukem game if this is how they want to keep him.
Hopefully Gearbox and 2K will realize their error in not fixing this game before releasing it and try to reboot it with favorable results. I will still not pre-buy it like I did this one. This is the last game I ever put on reserve for early purchase. The second time this year I have been burnt by paying full price for a horrible game.
Certainly not worth $60. Not even worth $20. I would say wait a month or so when all the used game stores are trying to get rid of the surplus they have and mark it down to $3. Even then that is pushing it.… Expand
