Final Breakdown


If you've ever wanted to really play as Batman, from stealth to beatdown, this is your chance. Past Batman titles have invariably been more about the beatdown, with no reward for stealthy play.


There are a few glitches here and there, and a few poor choices in costuming (plus a few GREAT ones... Mmm, Harley Quinn), but overall it's stellar.

Sound and Music:

Star, incredible voice cast? Check. Wonderful music? Check. Great atmospherics? Check.


Multiple difficulty modes give you plenty of options to make it as easy or hard as you like, and even the stealth mode reacts accordingly. Very nicely done.

Controls and Interface:

I managed to find one control that I didn't like in the whole interface. Given the immense number of options, I can't say that there is any way to improve it.


Pick it up, whether new or used, and play away.
