    Finished the main campaign, but still have a lot of trophies to collect and riddles to solve. Is it just me or did the end feel a bit rushed?

    [result]You go very quickly from confronting Strange in Wonder Tower to Ra's revelation and then death, to the final confrontation with Clayface & the Joker. In fact, I think all of that probably only took me 90 minutes (or possibly even less) in game.[/result]

    Arrgghhhhhh.....I've been getting these 'download content errors' every now and again, which means re-starting the game. It was just occasionally, but as soon as I got into the museum it was every 20 mins. Through the annoyance and stop starting (I figured once I got out of there it might be better) I got to and beat Solomon Grundy....then as soon as Penguin says 'just you and me, batman'...'download content error'..I've beat Grundy 6 times now, and the error happens as soon as Penguin finishes line.:mad: I nearly put my foot through my Xbox I was so pissed.

    I'm not currently online with my 360, so I'm taking it around a mates tomorrow, to see if I can download a new update. If it doesn't work something is getting smashed up.

    I was really loving the game as well.:(

    I cleared my cache....and I got past Penguin, woohoo. I thought that might be the end of my content errors....but it popped up again half an hour later.:rolleyes: As long as it only once in a while, I can probably deal with it.

    Picked this game up (for ps3) about two days ago, and finished it today.
    Is it me, or was the game too short? To be fair, I went through the story withouth getting too distracted by the side missions or riddler trophies.
    And I also found the boss battles to be way too easy. Which is a shame, because they were well thought out and more creative than the generic boss battles in Arkham Asylum.

    But other than that, one of the best and most epic games I have ever played!
    A masterpiece (bar the minor complaints).

    Bring on the third game!

    I'd say it was my top game of last year....and there were some great games released in 2011.

    I got about 15 hours worth of game play out of it...which is pretty good, but I did all the side missions (except riddler trophies...which didn't interest me) during the main story line, and before I faced the final boss. Some of the side missions are cool, well worth doing to extend the gameplay. If I was to just follow the main story arc, and not explored, it would have been quite short for a modern game.

    Yes. I think I will revisit the game again, some other time, and do all the side stuff when I replay it via the game plus option. Imo it is well worth playing again. I really enjoyed the game. Arkham Asylum was one of my favorite games. I say Arkham City is a great improvement, with new gadgets and combat moves, not to mention an immersive city to free roam in. Easily on my top 5 favorite games of all time to be honest.

    It's probably the second best licensed video game ever, right after Knights of the Old Republic.

    I searched Google and it appears it will not be a pure Batman game in that case, but a Justice league game where we get to see Batmans first meeting with Joker.

    Ive also heard another rumour that Rocksteadys next project is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game.
