If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Warner brothers have announced that the next arkham game be a silver age comic prequel for when batman first meets the joker, the justice league is also said to appear in the game as well along with batman, if you ask me it sounds like there making a none lego version of lego batman 2 but without the story of that game. What do you people think, good idea or a reason to bring back joker and bring in the justice league, to be honest i really couldn't see superman or the green lantern work in the same place as arkham city.
...If you ask me, it sounds like they're making a non-Lego version of Lego Batman 2 but without the story of that game.
So, it's nothing like Lego Batman 2 at all. In fact, it sounds like they're just making another Batman game.
Also, you get an F- for your grammar. Come see me after class.
B-B-B-BUT YOUR JUST A GRAMMAR NAZI! WHAT DO YOU KNOW?
I meant like lego batman 2 with the charcters showing up in the game to help batman
I really like the idea, but I'm definitely worried that it'll be bad after the complete disaster that was Arkham City.
And they'll have to use new character designs. The old ones just wouldn't work.
Arkham City was a disaster?
I haven't played either of the Arkham games myself, but can you give me a brief overview of why you think this? Generally all of the stuff I hear about these games is pretty positive, so I'd love to hear a dissenting opinion.
I actually liked Arkham Asylum. I hate Arkham City.
Arkham City is an open world style game and I'm not a fan of open world style games in general.
The best thing the game does is the combat, but it's combat that's taken from Arkham Asylum.
The things that make me mad about the game are the characters and the story. All of the characters are ugly. As in they look, act, and are modeled ugly. I know it's Rocksteady's personal spin on the heroes and villains but they are all noticeably worse. People always bitch about Harley Quinn but she's just the tip of the iceberg. It's grittiness for the sake of grittiness and what you wind up with is a bunch of characters that all are just nasty and boring and sort of lame.
More than that, the plot is bad. It's convoluted, forgets logic, and sorta fucks up a major part of the Batman mythos.
It's just bad.
Same. City isn't as good as Asylum, but I can't say it was bad...
I was considering picking up Arkham Asylum and later getting Arkham City: Armored Edition as a launch title for the Wii U. Perhaps I'll rethink the latter part of that plan, after doing a bit more research before I form my opinion mind you.
Totally agree with your sentiment about open world/sandbox games by the way. It seems that far too many games are doing it these days just for the sake of doing it, usually adding nothing or even detracting to gameplay and story in some cases. I don't mind it every now and then, but I feel that these types of games are starting to over-saturate the market.
It's totally possible that you'll enjoy Arkham City. It just wasn't for me.
And to be fair to Arkham City, it does have a ton of easter eggs and collectibles that make it a decently filled open world game. But like I already said, it's an ugly world filled with easter eggs about obnoxious villains.
The team definitely has talent.
I didn't think there was another person on Earth that didn't like Arkham City, as well. Then again, I'm not a fan of Asylum, either.
One thing I can't understand is how everyone can over-look the worst thing about both games: the voice direction. It is absolutely atrocious. Besides the odd choices, everybody speeds through it with break-neck velocity. I swear, that last speech from Hamill at the end of Asylum before he injects the serum into himself was said in one breath.
My only issue with the voice direction is how Tara Strong, an amazing voice actress, managed to make Harley sound like a squealing 12 year old girl. I was totally okay with Tara Strong taking Arleen Sorkin's place but the result was... cringing.
