GameBlurb, "After beating Batman: Arkham Asylum, I thought about why it was so great, especially when other licensed games pale in comparison."
They can learn to use people who have a genuine love for the subject matter they are dealing with. And treat the license with respect. It's something that is very clear when you play the Batman games, they seem to be more of a labour of love than just something to rake the cash in. There is a lot of attention to detail that a Batman fan can appreciate.
And what's really great about these two Batman games is that they are a far cry from the horrible horrible other Batman games made for a quick cash in on a name. It's like you said, it's clear that the devs are fans of Batman and that's why it's so great.
batman: begins is also great.. others.. hmmm
Cars: The Video Game, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Ratatouille (PSP) and Toy Story 3 are examples of other licensed games that kick ass too. Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Surf's Up was what kept me going back in 2007.
I would love to see what Rocksteady could do with Spiderman.
i really wish that rockstedy could make games based on marvel characters at times
i wish activation change the way the make games, they got great marvel games licensed but horrible playability.
As much as i loved arkham city the game is a shining example of how NOT to handle DLC content plain & simple!
Any game based off of a movie! 99% of those games suck.
Yeah. Except for Spiderman 2 on PS2.
The problem with games like this is the majority of the time they are low budget games that are rushed out to release around the time of the movie. I highly doubt that most of the publishers for games that have movie tie ins care if it is GOTY worthy or not.. They just want to sell some copies and make a profit from the hype of the movie. Batman however doesn't really follow movie releases and that is a good thing since they can spend time to make a great game and need to worry about making the stories similar.
