News of The Dark Knight Rises, the third in Christopher Nolan's Batman movie series, has ignited hopes in fans across the globe that a video game won't be far behind.
of course there will be a game.
But the question is, Do we need it? We already have a wildly successful non-movie "adaptation" of Batman. Batman Arkham (Asylum/City). Is it possible to have TWO successful games based off of a series, when having one is practically impossible in most cases? (See Iron Man, Superman, and Spiderman [The Movie Games])
of course we dont need it . But it will happens like with every movie of that magnitude . Just dont expect an Arkham Asylum quality experience
as I said before. Wolverine the Game was turning out to be a really cool game until the company was forced to adapt it in the movie IP called XMEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE. It became less than half the game it could of been. Movie games restrict creativity and it sickens me.
Yes we will get a game, and it's called Batman: Arkham City.
But in 2012...
We have Batman Arkham Asylum/City we don't need no The Dark Knight.
i hope not - movie games suck. I'd rather it be a game with no time constraints or a script they must stick to that might possibly suck.
i wouldnt play it unless its made by rocksteady
Yeah, I think the big question that surrounds the movie game tie-in is who's going to be the team behind development. Would Rocksteady be willing to take on the The Dark Knight Rises game? The game will sell millions no matter what so it's a down to Warner to make the decision of actually making this a good game.
Dark Knight is right up there with Terminator 2 for me personally.
Nolan is beast! And really, who expects the video game adaptation to be any good? Isn't the Chronicles of Riddick still the best game based off a movie? Kind of a low standard.
King Kong holds that honor, actually.
a batman game a few years ago which was going to be a ps3 exclusive and it got canned
The 'Dark Knight' game was canceled after Batman:AA was shown publicly, and the (original) release date was to be so close to the release of the movie. It was being made by now defunct Pandemic Studios and EA, and was going to be like the Spider-man movie games... open-world, and repetitive crap. EA was already in over their heads on the game, financially, and the game was having a lot of issues running on the Saboteur engine. EA's license to produce a Batman game ran out in '08, and WB wanted the rights back (before another IP-damaging game, like Batman Begins, could happen. WB was publishing, and basically forced EA's hand...and ultimately Pandemic's closure. That is why WB bought Rocksteady ; they saw them as the future of Batman. There was NEVER any mention of it being PS3 exclusive....and as it was coming from EA and Pandemic, there's no way that was happening anyway.
I'd rather have an Inception game
Best movie of 2010.
Along with Scott Pilgrim and Buried. On topic, I don't think they should, I will happen but it shouldn't, we already have a top-notch Batman game series and film series, I highly doubt a movie tie-in game will match the quality of the films or Batman:AA. Then again money talks and the success of the movies could make this game sell a shit-load, good or bad.
I hope not. These are not comparable media, people. Movies based on games suck. Games based on movies suck. They don't target the same parts of your brain as forms of entertainment.
A cellphone game
I really hate that third film's title. So generic, lame, and repetitive. Ugh, between that an no Riddler, I am freakin' worried. Nolan has been hitting home runs for a while now, and he is due for a dud. I just hope it isn't this movie.
I agree on the title, Batman Begins..The Dark Knight..and something that doesnt have "The dark kinght" in it. Gotham City sounds good
Knightfall sounds way better than The Dark Knight Rises. I have a feeling WB are responsible for such a lame title for a potentially great movie.
Knightfall is stupid if the theme of the movie is anything like Dark knight Rises' title suggest .
I never said Knightfall was perfect. I just said it's better than just adding the word "Rises" to the name of the last movie.
I can only hope that after Arkham Asylum that this developer makes this a fantastic game. However looking at the track record of games based on movies has me incredibly worried. :/
