Well, the game was really cool and story was also awesome and graphics was very good thing. Well, my personal advice is that never go on a side mission when playing campaign story because if you set your map pointer on something else you will lose your story path :P (I have wasted a lot of time on that :D). The hand to hand fighting style was awesome and the gadgets were also very great. It was my first Batman experience and I have decided to play other two parts as well :). The graphics were also very great and the cutscene graphics were better than ever :D. Storyline was also very good with many unknown adventures. The Detective Vision and Evidence Scanners were the best things. Like a real detective, I really liked those two features of the game. Also there are many more Side missions to go through like defeating Enigma, Anarky and destroying Drug Caches etc. Well, the overall thing is that it deserved the title of most anticipated game of the year. I hope there are many more upcoming titles to the game :).
