    Pros:

    Great looking graphics.

    Storyline kept the game interesting.

    Creative multiplayer options.

    Cons:

    Boss battles can be frustrating.

    Overall:

    The third instalment in the Batman series is a prequel with Batman relatively new to the superhero game and getting to know the villains of Gotham. The storyline is strong including twists and turns, keep it exciting throughout as Batman is faced with the darker elements of the streets chasing after him to claim Black Mask’s 50 million dollar bounty. The combat system has been kept the same which is good for fans of the first two games (hey if it ain’t broke don’t fix it). There are a few new toys to play with, but the old faithfuls are there to make sure you can hit all the switches and pull down those wide spaced ducts all around Gotham City.

    The city is full of side missions and collectables galore to keep the explorers happy throughout the game. There is a detective mode for all the NCIS fans out there where Batman can piece the clues together to work out what exactly happened before dealing out some sweet justice. The fun beat downs are all there and with some practice you can put together some great combinations when you find yourself in the middle of some thugs that wanna play. The boss levels are a little more challenging with it usually needing the player to work out the weakness and time it just right continually to wear them down, while also fighting off other thugs or dodging bombs.

    There is also an extra disc for the multiplayer modes which do show some creativity with the team thug battles, where randomly selected players take control of Batman and Robin to take out members of the gangs. So not only do the players need to watch out for the other team, they need to watch their backs for an angry Batman from above. There are some original components to the multiplayer play, but most of the fun will be had in the main story. Overall another great game in the Batman series with the graphics, storyline and combat system. Beware of the Bat!
