I was thinking that too

thats what it sounds like to me

Hopefully they just give you some incentive explore the open area (unlike Mafia 2).

Mafia II."

Ewwww. No, thank you. Mafia 2 was horrible. Batman:AA is superior in every way.

In Mafia's defense, it did have some of the most realistic settings in a city I've seen since GTAIV. Seemed like they actually took some time out to render a real life city with every nook & cranny.

kirsq's point was to do with the whole
"open world...but linear" quote, is it not?

no talk of what's good or 'horrible'.

krisq3335d ago

it's not complicated at all , geez , it actually existed with plenty games like 16 bits castlevania before ...

Its a big hub with multiple linear paths .

Myze3335d ago

Yeah, and I actually prefer that style for a game that wants to tell a good storyline. Open world is nice sometimes, but I am not in the boat where people are talking about the ps4 and such being able to make all games open world. I would probably quit gaming at that point.

Anyway, I like everything I've seen on Arkham City so far.

DevilsJoker3336d ago

...Was exactly like that. So it's not that complicated at all. It's a big open world but the game will funnel you down certain paths most the time for story events. Easy.

But the game is ,.. damn great,.. They made a lot of elements click,.. Gamer's game !

Just please record more audio,..(how hard can it bee to like program the stats,.. yes we played that 4 times in the row,.. next clip) cause Joker started repeating himself,.

Are you trying to simulate stuttering? Or why are you putting commas and dots where they don't belong?

Whoooop3336d ago (Edited 3336d ago )

Big open area... Not world.

The area is big but that's as far as it goes contrary to an open world that it's not limited to the area you are but by the limits of the whole map/world.

Batman 2 will be linear with some big areas and IMO that's a good thing. While I enjoy sandbox games, I prefer a linear storyline.

Agreed.. they tend to be more engaging

AwesomeJizz3336d ago

I love linear games, they're better and they focus on the storyline
