While this particular outing for the goddamned Batman could certainly stand to be better (especially on the technical side of things), it still manages to combine a beloved license with bog-standard triple-A game design tropes in an entertaining way -- something that happens far less frequently than most publishers would like it to. At the very least, it's a good enough introduction to the Arkham universe to make me want to finally go back and play the previous chapters of the series.

Rocksteady certainly raised the bar, leaving Warner Bros. Montréal with big shoes to fill. Nonetheless, they manage to deliver a gripping adventure worthy of the dark knight, even if the starting hours leave a bit to be desired. A stubborn and arrogant Batman is a perfect segue for the series, and one that’s sure to appease fans’ appetite for costume-themed justice.

One thing we will admit though, is that Batman’s next-gen appearance is most certainly going to need to bring ambitious new mechanics and ideas to the series – if we don’t get to drive the Batmobile around town, we’ll be crushed. Following the same exact formula another time out could devastatingly tarnish the brand. What's here is assuredly fun, but it's dangerously close to stretching itself too thin.
