Consoles Have Batman Fever: He's breaking out everywhere!

This article looks at three very different interpretations of Batman in upcoming titles LEGO Batman, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and the rumoured Dark Knight tie in, along with his role in Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe.

XboxOZ360 asks:

So with 3 different Batman games that are set for different audiences which Batman game would appeal to you the most? The family friendly LEGO Batman, the darker more gritty evil version of Batman or the movie tie-in Batman game?

I'm wondering when the Lego craze will end actually, we'll have Lego Tomb Raider soon,now how are they going to show Lara in Lego . . hmmm . . the mind boggles.

But as far as the others go, if they are done right, and the Rocksteady one looks damn nice, they should come off really well, hopefully.

You not think these LEGO games are all the same ? They use the same engine etc just with differert locations. I have Lego StarWars and although its fun at times its very repetitive, hit a block collect coins / build a device to get some more coins / shoot a bad guy & collect more coins etc etc etc... Now if they just done away with this bloody coin collecting and replaced it with something different for each game then maybe these 20 different Lego games would be worth getting, but as they stand they arent. If you have one of them you will be wasting your money buying another.

I wonder as well when the LEGO craze will end but it seems that they are doing something right as everyone seems to be buying them and loving them.

B: AA does well and truly look like it will be the Batman experience every villain you can think of, comic style Batman, and everything else we love about our caped crusader...

Regarding the movie tie-in i really couldn't care much about that game anymore seeing as B:AA has truly overshadowed it. And The Dark Knight train has heavily slowed down so while a game could spark interest again it will be hard to overshadow Arkham Asylum

Another game which is set to feature the caped crusade is the PS3 Exclusive DC Universe Online...

The only thing i ask for after all these games is that they do not start milking the cow with Batman... the last thing i would want to see is a string of Batman games that are less than average popping out on each console..

how do you kill the batman?
its easy of course... release a bunch of movie tie-in games its bound to kill him sooner or later

right now a few of these games look promising but sooner or later they will overdo it, we already have 5 games with him in it counting MK VS DC a few more and it will have gone overboard. And its only been a month since the movie in theatres

Yeah I wonder if too much Batman will ruin it or even be profitable. Especially with the Dark Knight one; not sure there is much to play as really...it was more of a visual experience with good writing that may not translate well to video game.

That all 3 Batman games aren't the exact same thing..

LEGO: Batman more family friendly Batman game for everyone
B: AA more darker gritty Batman aimed at teens and older
and the supposed Dark Knight game aimed at young teens and older...

If all 3 games were basically the same stuff different smell then we would have a problem but it's good that they are 3 different alliterations of the Dark Knight..

Lets just hope after these 3 games and DC Universe Online and MK vs DC that people don't start making endless games with either Batman as a featured character or just based around Batman...
