Concept Art by Meinert Hansen



"Some more Batwing designs, from when I was first exploring shapes. There were some pretty goofy-looking shapes too, but all part of the exploration process. The fundamental goal was to design an aircraft that was Batman’s first successfully working prototype, but still had to look mean and cool. VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) needed to be an essential part of the design. I added a rendered version of the final below, and you can see how it evolved from the initial designs and my final blueprints." - Meinert Hansen

Concept Art from WB Games



Features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline occurring several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Taking place before the rise of Gotham City's most dangerous villains and assassins, the game showcases a young, raw, unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. As the story unfolds, witness identities being formed and key relationships being forged.

I hope some the Design of Affleck's Batman will look like Arkhams Suit.

Great game it comes in second or third out of the series so far. I loved the ending though, cannot wait to see a Suicide Squad Game!

you know what the batwing reminds me of.... the X302 from Stargate SG-1... look it up

Great game!

Nothing "deal breaking" as I already have the game, but I actually don't like the design of the Batwing, and would have preferred one of those alternative designs.

@DukeNukem, I bought it but I haven't played it yet (been playing the Deathstroke challenges while in between the Deadpool game) so I can't give you a full review. But I will say this... it appears that it is just additional challenge maps and the option to be the ninja Bruce Wayne rather than Batman on all Challenge maps. I haven't looked into it to see if there is anymore to it (like story).
Minghagz - 12/23/2013, 2:58 PM
oh nevermind BlackJack beat me to it.

This game could have been so much better.

Black Mask could use some Head & Ashes shampoo before putting that white Tom Wolfe suit on.

@GL
Not really, it's a prequel. Prequels always suck because you know what the outcome is and you cant really add new things that weren't there in the other games. All things considered, this was a pretty decent game.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 12/23/2013, 3:06 PM
I have it but I only played online so far

I love this game. This whole freakin series actually. REALLY want to see some more DC characters with games like this, could be epic.
GliderMan - 12/23/2013, 3:14 PM
This was an alright game. Wish it had more story to it and more Black Mask. I think it was just to tie us over until the next game.
GoldenOne33 - 12/23/2013, 3:48 PM
WoW you guys are really crying out for Ben Affleck/Batman concept art.

It's blantantly obvious.
GL - 12/23/2013, 4:02 PM
I mean, it was good, but I guess I got my hopes up to high. What if really didn't like though is how in the end it was all Joker's plan. I actually wanted no Joker in this, time for a new main villain.
chrispunk28 - 12/23/2013, 4:17 PM
too bad this game sucks
GliderMan - 12/23/2013, 6:27 PM
More Joker. More Loki.
DrunkenPirateNukem - 12/23/2013, 8:24 PM
@Black...@Ming...thanks!....yeah i have the deathstroke and its good...but the idea of him fighting with a stick instead of his swords...i mean...he is not robin...he is a killer!...but whatever...i hope rocksteady annouces its "rumored" justice league game (i heard they were developing this for next gen)... in 2014..
DrunkenPirateNukem - 12/23/2013, 8:27 PM
here is the link where i saw it a long time ago..

Minghagz - 12/23/2013, 11:56 PM
@Duke, Ya the staff instead of the sword is definitely a let down. But I think its because they cater those challenge maps to Bat-family heroes so they probably didnt want to dive into combat fighting for someone without "morals"
PrinceOfCrime - 12/24/2013, 1:10 AM
Am I the only one having a fatal bug in the game? When joker is throwing with glass in the prison chapel I can't counter.
:(
jimoakley666 - 12/24/2013, 2:01 AM
I think they need more wing and less bat.
JediPhilosopher - 12/25/2013, 3:41 AM
As long as the games do well, the spirit of Batman is being preserved I think, until WB finally gets off its lazy stupid ars and makes a truly amazing Batman movie that represents the charcater anywhere near as perfectly as these games do. I'd say maybe this next movie, but even my optimism is wearing thin after all these years.

I could look at these all day
