Just finished New Game + and made sure to switch on my Detective Vision during the fight with the Joker in the Steel Mill. Just to make sure.

Yup, they didn't mess up.

Has anyone done the achievie for all moves in one combo? I found a list online of the required moves and have done it about 8 times but nothing has popped!

If the online list includes every quickfire gadget, it's wrong - I got away with just quickfire batarang.

Also, make sure you do combat evade AS WELL as a vault over enemy, so to evade double tap X or whatever it is on xbox and move away from any enemies so you do a roll.
Make sure you do a triples stun AS WELL as a single stun.

Those are the areas that I stuffed up on initially.

Assistance required for a useless lump

Finished story mode, and now trying to complete as many of the side missions as I can.

Have found Deadshot's second victim, and followed the bullet trajectory to the Casino, where the bullet trail stops mid air (just below the dice)

Been all round the area, but can't find any evidence or suchlike to scan in.

I'm sure it's just me being a complete tit (not for the first time) but what the Sam Hell am I missing?

I too had problems with this mission.

I used a guide to help me.

This happened with me too, i was looking for ages for this. Near the edge of the roof is a stand hes used to prop a gun up- if you follow the trajectory all the way to the sign you wont find it.

On a side note I deleted all my game data. Breezed through the main story on hard though Im stuck again on that Catwoman Two Face bit!! Looking foward to playing the game+ again, plus I downloaded the free costume. Might give another DLC a shot too, Nightwing looks pretty interesting, anyone have it?

I just finished New Game + and was dreading to do the Catwoman/Two Face bit in the museum, but thankfully I didn't need to do that bit for the acheivement so I swiftly quit.

Does Nightwing have a differnet combo set than Robin?

Haha now this all sounds suspect!

I offered everyone before but I have some female Batman avatars. I'd rather give to regulars (even if it's for your missus or kids etc).

PM me and I'll see what I can do.

Cheers.

Anyone else have the game glitch at Zsasz's hideout?

It's still showing as an active mission for me despite me having taken him out and saved the hostages. I checked online to see if this was common and was made aware of another glitch. Apparently if you fall in the water before collecting the 2 riddler trophies (after defeating Zsasz) then the game doesn't register that you've collected them. Can anyone confirm if this is true? I fell in the water and I don't want to spend hours collecting trophies only to discover that the achievement won't pop.

I've really had my fucking fill of glitched achievements now, if I can't complete it to 100% because of a glitch then fuck it, back to Lovefilm it goes. Haven't enjoyed it anywhere near as much as I enjoyed Asylum anyway. .

Edit: How fucking frustrating is the plot towards the end? Talia could easily have, you know, just killed (or taken out) The Joker instead of faffing about offering him immortality. Also, how often does the "ooh nearly got the cure, fuck off now you don't" plot point get used in this? It's ridiculous.

SPOILERS AHEAD

Yes. Decent game, shit plot and some ridiculously badly conceived boss fights (much like the first in that respect). The Clayface fight has to be one of the dullest end of game bosses since Arkham Asylum. Also I found it much more of a chore than the first game at times. Suprised at the ending though, didn't think they'd have the balls to kill the Joker. As for the Hugo Strange side of the plot I dunno if the fact that it was Ra's Al Ghul behind it was meant to be a twist or not but I sussed that out as soon as I knew what Protocol 10 was. It's good but ultimately dissapointing imo.

Wanted to check you'd finished it before tackling this. Talia never meets the actual Joker that's why! The fight in the Steel Mill is all Clayface. Joker is dying throughout the whole game he only puts himself in harms way once and that's at the start of the game.

Regarding the plot as a whole I'd agree there are a lot of threads running through it. Jokers twist being the most daring at the least and most interesting at best. The Ras and strange story feels unfinished ... even though they both die. Because you find out Ras is pulling the strings but then he dies right after. If it isn't carried over in a sequel I'd be disappointed. Quite a few threads unfinished. For example go back to the Arkham Entrance where Ras landed. The body is gone. Batman never sees Talia's body again. It disappears from the room during the Clayface battle. It always amused me that he carries Jokers dead body out of Arkham but his true love disappears without a trace. I could ramble on more but yeah the plot has those elements of "the middle movie" bigger, bolder and throwing lots of story threads in the air to be continued. I'd agree it doesn't stand up on it's own as much as Akrham Ayslum did which told a smaller and tighter story.


Boss fights and combat in general ... thought they were a huge improvement on Arkham Asylum over all.

Right. I'm stuck and it's starting to piss me off so here I am.

I've just rescued Vicki Vale from the snipers and managed to get inside the Steel Mill. I'm currently navigating the water with my freeze blast island maker and I've come to a dead end with a fuse box in a mesh cage. I'm trying to turn it off with the Remote Batarang, the first time I do this Batman says 'A Batarang WILL hold enough charge to override the fuse box' but it doesn't turn off!

I'm a bit shit with the remote batarang but I have managed to hit it a few times now and it's still not working. Am I doing it right? I can't think of anything else that will get me past this bit.

Help me please!

Bought this a couple of weeks ago, and it's not fun as Arkham Asylum. In fact it's quite boring. I really can't be arsed going after all the Riddler trophies, there's fucking hundreds.

Shame.

I found it quite dull at times as well. Gameplay wise I'd say it's inferior to it's predecessor in every way. It just wasn't anywhere near as much fun to play as Asylum in my opinion.

I actually found collecting the trophies more interesting than the last 2 or 3 hours of the main story.

I've made my feelings on the game clear a few posts up (in discussion with you ). I didn't dig it as much as the original, it felt aimless, bogged down, unfocussed and a little bit dull.

Simple really. I didn't hate the game, in fact I did like it but I loved the original. This was a massive dissapointment in comparison, especially after all the hype.

The combat, stealth, flying, gadgets and bosses (well most of them) are all improved. Wasn't a fan of the plot to be honest but it's still decent. Not much room for disapointment personally. Unfocused? I mean the buildings are further apart but it's still the same setup of getting gadget X to open area Y.

I couldn't tell much difference between the combat in Asylum and City personally (it has been a while since I played Asylum though). I thought it could have been tighter in both cases to be honest. I also found the bosses just as dull in City as Asylum. The Ra's fight bored me, as did the Grundy fight and the Clayface end fight was tragically bad. Considering the only real complaints about the first game were the boss fights it surprised me that they didn't make more of an effort.

I thought the plot was utter bobbins and I found a lot of the side missions samey and in some cases too long (the Zsasz one especially).

The flying/gliding was great fun though, I enjoyed the flight challenges and the Ra's level (right up until the boss fight) and some of the puzzles were a joy to solve.

Like I said, I did like the game but expected it to be better and I had more fun with the first one.

It bored me. What can I say. It lacked the atmosphere of Asylum, the main plot was muddled, or at least it felt like it, probably due to the whole, the guy who you think is the main bad guy is perhaps not the main badguy and lets not forget Joker he could turn out be the No1 villain but then again hey may be just a slightly larger distraction than say the Cockney Cobblepot.

I'm pretty sure Asylum gave me the willies on a couple of occasions aswell.

So yeah, it struggled to maintain my interest.

I've made my feelings on the game clear a few posts up (in discussion with you ). I didn't dig it as much as the original, it felt aimless, bogged down, unfocussed and a little bit dull.

Simple really. I didn't hate the game, in fact I did like it but I loved the original. This was a massive dissapointment in comparison, especially after all the hype.


We had a dicussion but it trailed of, as you've pipped up again I thought you'd have more to say.
You've made some fair points and some constructive criticism which is what I was after.

The combat, stealth, flying, gadgets and bosses (well most of them) are all improved. Wasn't a fan of the plot to be honest but it's still decent. Not much room for disapointment personally. Unfocused? I mean the buildings are further apart but it's still the same setup of getting gadget X to open area Y.



All true! Though in regards to the game being unfocused I think I can understand that. It's partly due to opening the game up and offering more freedom. If you do that you can't focus the game and have players do exactually want you want etc. You can guide players and the game does that for sure but it's a trade off of offering more freedom.
Balance is key. I remember a few people complaining Arkham was too linear etc

I couldn't tell much difference between the combat in Asylum and City personally (it has been a while since I played Asylum though). I thought it could have been tighter in both cases to be honest. I also found the bosses just as dull in City as Asylum. The Ra's fight bored me, as did the Grundy fight and the Clayface end fight was tragically bad. Considering the only real complaints about the first game were the boss fights it surprised me that they didn't make more of an effort.

I thought the plot was utter bobbins and I found a lot of the side missions samey and in some cases too long (the Zsasz one especially).

The flying/gliding was great fun though, I enjoyed the flight challenges and the Ra's level (right up until the boss fight) and some of the puzzles were a joy to solve.

Like I said, I did like the game but expected it to be better and I had more fun with the first one.



Regarding bosses and combat ... I think you should replay Arkahm. As they are an improvement for sure. If the bosses didn't meet your expectations that's still fair enough. Though combat is much improved.

I can understand not going after the trophies, but boring?



Indeed. Elaborate.


It bored me. What can I say. It lacked the atmosphere of Asylum, the main plot was muddled, or at least it felt like it, probably due to the whole, the guy who you think is the main bad guy is perhaps not the main badguy and lets not forget Joker he could turn out be the No1 villain but then again hey may be just a slightly larger distraction than say the Cockney Cobblepot.

I'm pretty sure Asylum gave me the willies on a couple of occasions aswell.

So yeah, it struggled to maintain my interest.



You can say a bit more than "it's boring" Which you have now ... a bit.

Have you finished it then?

I agree as above it isn't as tight and focussed as Arkaham is. But that's in large part due to the freedom it gives you in regards to a larger more open world to play in and side stories, side missions and more extra challenges to do in your own time.
