I think Rocksteady will also be able to make a superb Spider-Man game, I'd buy it
This Batman Game is a masterpiece in my opinion. I LOVE THIS BATMAN GAME!
BATMAN IS THE BEST DC CHARACTER,EVEN BETTER THAN [SUPERMAN].
Just finished it. I thought Arkham Asylum was good, but this one definitely hit the 9/10 range. Overall, it did everything Asylum did but made it more varied and fun to play.
Damn this has a lot to offer
Well if I wasn't already sold by playing the original and waiting for the sequel, this review more or less, sealed the deal. I still kinda wish they SA crew would just go back solely to the "Buy, Rent, or Fuck it" rating system, just because that set them apart from the rest and pretty much simplifies what one should think coming into a new game, but oh well.
I just wish they would do a similar game for Iron Man or Ghostrider.
I have yet to play either Batman game. But this review has tempted me...
That's the Internet! :)
Great! They didn't change the game!!! I love the screwattack guys put the name of the developer. Great touch guys!
It seems to me that the problems people are having stem from their perception of what the numerical score means. For years, review outlets have trained gamers to look at games on what was actually a 7-10 scale. Sites like Screwattack have begun to lead a push away from that, taking the 1-10 scale seriously. Naturally, games receiving the same praise will land a lower numerical score.
Jow was that controversial? You praised the shit out of the game.
Ok, I get what you mean and I respect you're review and score, but for me it's still a nine.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with this. Expressing opinions on matters is actually an individual's right that has also its limitations and we should be aware of that. What's controversial with Batman is the way some people react to his being famous and icon of being a super hero considering the fact that many individuals are now doing some horrifying things in relation to Batman. Just like wearing Batman costumes even in an ordinary date and place and even in doing some crazy thing. A male in Michigan was sentenced to six month probation for his tricks in a Superhero costume. Mark Wayne Williams was arrested in May in Petoskey, Mich. Officers, responding to reports of Batman being spotted on a roof, found him dangling off the side of the building by a rope. Some reports say police the officers helped him up, some say he was “rescued.” It is not clear whether the would-be superhero was stuck. The man was detained for trespassing and having a concealed weapon. He has already been instructed to hang up his cape for six months. I don't think this would-be Batman unmasked in court and sentenced to probation had a great idea of what heroism should be.
Sidescrollers said controversial....I see no controversy here. That was Jared's opinion and its fine. Me personally gives this game a 9.5 or higher but maybe I felt more freedom than Jared did as I was going through the whole giant city.
why are people so upset with this review. Why are all the little girls just whining and complaining here he gave his honest opinion, and just because it differs from your doesn't mean it's a bad game. It's a fair rating and the people who complained about it saying that it should be 10 go find something better to do than bitch about a game review.
Just watched the video and I honestly don't anything wrong about the review. The rating and everything said in the review seems right.
I agree, people can be so immature.
Looks really good, and to the opinion thing, I agree. I don't understand why people get all butt hurt over other people's reviews. IT'S THEIR OPINION! just because Jared or even Craig hates something doesn't you have to or that the hate you.
