    Playing as Batgirl is not quite as interesting as I had hoped primarily due to a lazy hacking mechanic, but, A Matter of Family was still different, interesting, and fun enough to recommend to Arkham fans.

    A Matter of Family lets players take control of Batgirl for the first time, but still feels very familiar. Though very short, the experience is still fun and it's hard to go wrong with more Arkham.

    Batgirl's DLC is not able to bring anything new to the work of Rocksteady and what we see in "A Family Affair" feels too generic and the large-scale map is pretty wasted.

    A pretty short experience that doesn’t expand anything that we saw in the main game. However, A Matter of Family is fun and makes some things right.

    This first DLC offers a very short ride and doesn’t really add anything new nor notable to the main game.

    Yes, she gets her own area that’s larger than the other DLC stories, but it’s devoid of anything that makes this add-on unique. A re-skinned Batman is not what fans need, nor deserve.

    A competent but completely unremarkable story mission that seems to exist more as an excuse to sell season passes, rather than through any creative justification of its own.

It was good to see the Joker in his old form, vice just being a prankster. The little distractions were a nice little nod to the old school batman fans that were familiar with the old death traps.

    It's a nice little expansion to the game, with the only wish that it would've been woven more into the AK main story. (There are only a few subtle connections)

    While it is fun to play as Batgirl for the first time there is just too many problems for this to be a good DLC.
    Length: The biggest problem
    While it is fun to play as Batgirl for the first time there is just too many problems for this to be a good DLC.
    Length: The biggest problem being that it is way too short, I finished the story in about 50 minutes and found all the collectibles 20 minutes after I finished the story meaning I got only 1 hour and 10 minutes of gameplay.
    Mechanics: Some mechanics used in the game were well made for example, to replicate Batman's fear take-downs you had to instead hack a device to cause people to panic and unleash the pain, unlike the fear take-downs this can only be done in certain places which emphasises on the whole tactical aspect of stealth, the dual take-downs are here as well with Robin tagging along for the ride, some length could've been added here with some Robin sections but instead he is nothing more than a combat buddy who shows up from time to time and then buggers off.
    Story: The story was very bare bones and I felt it didn't add anything to the lore of the Arkham games, instead of treading new ground they revisit the same story tropes from Knight, such as Batgirl's and Robin's relationship is mention an then brushed aside, and most everything else is gone before it gets going.
    Villain: The Joker is back and I'm sick of him now, he was an interesting villain in Asylum and City but he is just overused, if you're going to have a story with Batgirl and the Joker then do 'The Killing Joke' because that was the only interesting interaction between the two. The worst part is he might as well not be there at all, he is on screen for less than a minute and just monologues the whole time. "Save this save that and then you can fight me."
    Overview: In retrospect I didn't get much enjoyment from 'A Matter of Family' but it was possible to enjoy the predator sections, and the distance from the Batmobile was a relief.

All you literally do is theAhh yes, the proverbial 40$ season pass has many questioning whether this BATGIRL dlc is worth it. Well it's not. All you literally do is the same combat and predator moves as batman but with *Spoilers* (Not really) cool new animations! Oh, and the whole hacking thing was a joke too, just another shoddy marketing gimmick. But wait the joker story must be good! No its not, it is laughable and it sounds like Mark Hamill is about to cough up the frog he had en-lodged in his throat for years. You can wait to buy this piece of garbage for 7.00$ or if you are an impatient 10 year old you can waste your money on the "Season Pass" and play it right now. Oh how the mighty have been bought out and fallen! Thanks Rocksteady for showing you don't give a **** like the rest of these developers. Expand
