“Heya, Bats”. Playing this “I wish I was a stealth-action-dark game” was fun. Nothing really impressive, I almost let it go. It could have more of stealth-catch-you-by-the-ass scenarios or more ways to use all the bat-arsenal.
The devs had a bat-belt of possibilities but only near the very end you start to use all the features that can be used by the dark knight. Too simple.
Too much of “Go from A to B, watch cutscene, go back to B, find a hole and get out”. The combat is pretty dull against 3 to 5 opponents, and the big guys have only one mechanic that make them bite the dust. Only the last fights felt like “Yeah, this is challenging”. And the bosses? Only one worth the title of “boss”, and a hot one!!! Yes, I would kiss Ivy.
The collectibles are a pretty neat addition, lots of info and very nice for people who like to know the basics from the Bat-story. The cutscenes are pretty good, the voice acting too.
Graphically talking it is damn awesome. Nice work. Shame a spent too much time in detective mode and couldn’t appreciate more of the real visuals.
Now I gotta jump to the next chapters, I’m full of Joker and his jokes, let’s beat more shit up.
A movie with 2 gigatons of tnt and testosterone is what you get. All the most cliche scenes from a classic action movie is here and still you feel like it’s a fresh piece.
Movie one was like “here we go, let’s take the shit we’ve done in the past and put here”. Movie 2 is the “ok we got it, now let’s put some light mood here, some jokes there, increase the action scenes length” and boom! Bull’s eye. The last piece is where you got the felling that “nice, very nice, well this ends well and if they come back, we’ll be here to watch again”.
The newcomers in the last movie were nice, but for me felt like they could do the mission without them. Except for Galgo. Galgo is the best touch they added, so much fun.
