And Rocksteady top it all off with the best trailer of all.

I'm just blown away by how awesome this game has turned out to be. A massive congratulations to Rocksteady, because I didn't think they'd be able to produce an AAA title of this quality.

Day one.

IGN is giving this game a 9.3 out of 10. Sweeeeeeeeet! My amazon.co.uk pre-order seems to have been a good choice :P

FYI for Belgians (and maybe French), due to the weak pound games on amazon uk are a lot cheaper then in our country.

Alright, so ignoring anything IGN has to say... this game is still getting awesome reviews. Got mine ordered :)

I really don't like the graphics in this game. Everything has this weird hue to it, just think it doesn't look nice at all!

Watched the Gametrailers.com review, and was pleasantly surprised. It'd definitely not a game I'd buy or rent, but I might borrow it of a friend of mine and give it a fair shit.

This game came out of nowhere, and is suddenly domination everything.
Just like Batman does to his foes.

And I have a feeling RockSteady is going to be one of the 'big boys' by the end of this gen.

Amazon and Play are always cheaper than Belgian retailers. I did pre-order the amazing limited PC-version of this game in Belgium, because Play doesn't deliver the limited edition outside the UK. (which makes sense)

It's like a couple of reviews have stated: Batman AA is the Bioshock of 2009. A game out of nowhere that becomes the best game of 2009 (so far). And as all other AAA titles later this year are sequels, it will be the best new franchise of 2009.

This month will be great, I must buy two AAA for my X360, Batman Arkham Asylum and Dream Club, I love japanese games xD

I can't wait to see how good this really is after having a 9.1 average so far after 15 reviews. Must be pretty damn good.

I really didn't think they would deliver on this level. I sure do love to be wrong about things like this :)

Don't think I'll buy it, as it doesn't look like the type of game i'd play more than once, but I'm sure as hell going to enjoy renting it on my gamepass.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of games would you at least rent?

Thats very kind of you, my question is "Is Riddler in there?"...
Plz answer!
Commented on 2009-08-25 09:47:04
Can't wait, pre-order is inplace and the girlfriend has been pre-warned! :)
Possible GOTY for me, for a new IP Rocksteady have excelled and are showing more established companies up! amaaaazing stuff!

yes, Riddler is in the game, actually there are 240 riddles for you to solve too which is a lot of fun.
The game is amazing, game of the year so far and best superhero game ever!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX FFA deathmatch is pretty fun in OW even though it's totally not balanced. Great Tracer practice. (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The Orville episode 3 was amazing. Very heavy topic but handled it extremely well. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (8 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (8 Hours ago)
