Alright, so I've only got about 1 or 2 side missions left in this game so I think it's time to write a review (The Riddler trophy collection and random acts of violence, which are in fact, random occurences so I can't exactly wait until I complete that and the trophy mission is a bit too time consuming) but all in all, this is really good, not as good as Arkham Asylum story-wise, but the rest is much better than Asylum in my opinion (although Asylum is so far arguably the best one in the Arkham series, just hope Arkham Knight can bring an epic conclusion and top the rest) but let's get in to the review.
The gameplay is overall really fun, especially the free flow combat and the number of ways to take an enemy out isn't that large, but you can still get creative. The grappling hook is really useful and fun to use, and the grapnel boost upgrade from the first Augmented Reality training will be really useful if you get it early on ( I got it after the main story, but I was still doing the Zsazs side mission which is time based, so the boost really helps in that matter) because it he;[s you move freely through the air (kinda) and is really fun in its own way if you were a fan of Just Cause 2 or watch Attack on Titan (I liked JC2 and watched AoT so it was really enjoyable for me) I don't know what else to say about the gameplay other than it's really fun.
The story is pretty good in my opinion, although I found it a bit predictable at times (like there's this part where Alfred supposedly has this antidote for you, but it turns out to be a trap, which I knew right when I got the supposed call, but just went with it) the ending is a bit shocking, but the plot twists are also in a way predictable. I really liked some bits, but the one with Ra's Al Ghul was kind of annoying. The side missions were also interesting to complete, but you have to do the story to unlock some of the missions and it became really tedious because I found myself getting more joy out of them than the story, like the Riddler's side mission with hostages you had to save. Harley Quinn's revenge was okay, but you could only be Robin for it and didn't get to choose to play through as Nightwing or Robin, it was just Robin and the ending left more to be desired.
The graphics are really good for it's time, and although my crappy computer can't run max settings, it can still run high, and I get a stable framerate too.
This is the end of my review and I hope you enjoyed and I persuaded you to get this game because it is really something I feel every Batman fan should experience for themselves (hell, this game got me INTO Batman and I've been reading the comics since)
