Extra Punctuation: The Sandbox Killed Batman

For all of Arkham City's good qualities, I think taking the series in a sandbox direction is going to be remembered as a bad idea. By relinquishing control of the game's structure and moving away from the somewhat Zelda-y model that the first game had, the concept lost focus. And the tragic thing is, there's no way to go back. The next game in the series, if such a thing comes to be, cannot be smaller than the previous one, that's the sort of thing that creates awkward conversations with the publishers

Until there actually is a bad game in this series no one is going to agree with this article.

Edit:
Actually, not only does there have to be a bad game in the series, at least twice as many entries also have to go off the same cliff to justify this.

In other words: you're four games too early to be submitting this piece...

Even then, people won't agree just because Batman:AC was such a success.
