Harley Quinn’s Revenge is Batman: Arkham City’s Bad New Ending | Kotaku Review

Kotaku: Harley Quinn's Revenge has had the opposite effect on me than whatever its creators likely intended.

The linear, two-hour $10 PS3/Xbox 360 epilogue to last October's excellent Batman: Arkham City has diminished my desire to return to that game and give me new worries about this Batman series' future.

This add-on is as delicious a dessert as a poison-filled Joker pie to the face. (Batman Arkham City: Harley Quinn's Revenge, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -

"were the series creators at Rocksteady holding back here, saving their new ideas for a new game or have we evidence that a lovely two-game formula has run its course?"

This seems a bit dramatic to me... Say what you will about the DLC but I doubt that means Rocksteady is washed up. I think they're one of the most exciting developers out there and I look forward to what the future holds for them.

Exactly. Controversial s*** stirring at its best.

*SPOILERS Batman:AC*
I think I'd rather see the story of AC end with a dead Joker. The idea of Joker and Batman is all about the fact that they would eventually come to a deadly clash, whether they wanted to or not, and Arkham City EMBODIES that idea.

Thus, AC ended perfectly. There is no need for a tack-on of Batman going head to head with Harley. Especially if it ends up being some "Joker is actually alive!" crap.

Let me say it again:
ARKHAM CITY ENDED PERFECTLY.

I'll give it a chance, but the whole idea makes me uneasy.

edit: oh, I didn't realize this DLC was already out.

I finished it just a few minutes ago. it was alright but

*spoilers of AC and to the dlc*

nothing really major happens plot wise. All you get is harley is pissed at batman(already a given), batman is depressed because of what happened to the joker and talia(once again, already a given), and harley is pregnant(which was already hinted at twice with the main game). Besides all of that though, it was still pretty fun.

*SPOILERS*
"and harley is pregnant"

But the screenshot from the article suggests that she isn't pregnant (anymore). There are tests everywhere with a negative on them. Isn't the suggestion that she lost the child or something?

"Here at Kotaku, we love Rockstar and BioWare. We defend them to the last straw, so we save a bad look on a major title for others. PS Max Payne 3 is awesome."

Okay?
