    the music in this game seemed heavily inspired by Hans Zimmer's score in many parts

    I really like the soundtrack. It's used really effectively, and I agree it's definitely inspired by the Nolan movies.

    Yes, but the 1:56 part plays through all the battle, i dont think its the main theme i would have noticed it.

    I love the amount of detail they put in the game. Like the scratches on the costume the more you play it's just so awesome.

    I'm fucking terrible with Challenges. I can't even score 10 000 points, let alone 24 000 or more for 3/3 marks.
    The secret to high scores is stunning the first few enemies with your cape and taking them out that way because you get like 3-5x combo each person. Then when the combo meter goes into the red take them out normally because you get x2 for each punch. Oh, and try to take out each enemy when they are on the ground because you get 75 points x whatever your combo score is. You will most likely get used to it soon enough. I was terrible at first since I had not played Arkham Asylum in over two years.

    Wow! Dat ending!    We salute our fallen hero! At least we know what Quinn'll be doing in the next game.    Also,   Batman with a sword just felt way to good. Best part of the game for me. I just guess the little boy in me was in awe at that.

    Is there a way to get those startup videos to stop playing (without breaking everything)? I mean, they're cool and all, but they make starting the game up take so much longer. I've tried renaming them, and I've tried messing with the engine.ini's, but everything I've tried has either messed everything up or not worked at all.

    Renaming them worked for me.

    Which ones, and where, specifically? Because I tried renaming a bunch under C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\batman2\BmGame\Movies and it would always mess up the main menu. Batman would be capeless, almost entirely dark (except for his eyes), and would have weird reflections on his face. The main menu would also be under a transparent grey artifact that covered most of the screen.

    Only rename startup.swf and startupNV.swf
    I don't have the Steam version though, maybe (but unlikely) that is causing your problems.

    Countering is so easy, I don't know why so many people struggle with it. I mean fuck, after playing through the game on New Game+, I counter their moves before the notification even pops up.

    One of the upgrades is extreme combo mode (12+) and another upgrades all your quickfire weapons in that mode for extra potency. The most notable one is quickfire explosive gel, which creates a large explosion radius and knocks down people for quite a bit of time. Another upgrade available is the multi-ground takedown.

    Combine the two and you have a way to clear a room of 30+ people down to 5-ish.

    I did this accidentally in a campaign challenge. Got to 12+ and used the explosive gel which knocked almost everyone down. Hit a few people and with critical strikes, got back to a 5 combo which then I immediately used the multi-ground takedown. Suddenly green circles everywhere and the game actually takes a massive frame rate hit. Went from 30 people to 5.

    Unfortunately, this combo doesn't actually give you a lot of points. You're much better off beating up everyone individually, but taking down 30 people in one attack is just way too much fun.

    Also should note, I'm playing it on the 360, so seeing the frame rate hit was actually very surprising.

    Size=! Optimization. It's because they do Pre-rendered 720p Cinematics at 6+Mbps... They actually look good this time. I think they listened when people complained about the compression artifacts in Asylums cinematics.

    Buying retail allaway.

    I just finished the main campaign and just just found my Robin DLC key. Does this also include Robin-campaign missions? If yes, how do I play them after I've already beaten the game as Batman and Catwoman?

    Also when the DLC finished downloading I was fucking pissed because for some reason it though it was a good idea to rip me right out of a challenge campaing without saving even though I was on the last map and there were only 2 enemies left!

    uh he did try and use spoiler tags, no other forum uses [sp]
    But he still didn't edit it...

    When you defeat    Clayface    and Joker nearly jumps into the pit it looks like the explosion    pushes Clayface into the pit   . Is    he    still alive and more powerful than ever?

    That's arguable. There's no way to know if    the Lazarus pits can affect Clayface the way it affects humans, seeing as Clayface is a mound of living goop. For all we know it could have completely destroyed him, or it didn't affect him at all (and let's face it, Batman probably didn't kill Clayface during the fight. He may have knocked him out for a bit, but I don't think a mound of living goop like Clayface could be killed that easily, if at all.

    I didn't know about    Clayface    before playing Arkham City (I only watched the Nolan Batman films) and was surprised when Batman suddenly started    cutting him in little pieces    when he wouldn't even want to kill far more evil criminals.

    I just killed a henchmen. On the predator map "Top Of The World" I was on one of the outer gargoyles when it said I could do an inverted takedown even though there's nothing directly below me but a sheer drop to the city. I performed the takedown and batman kind of swooped over to a henchman that was on a balcony, picked him up and hung him from the gargoyle I was on. Then I used a batarang to cut the rope and watched him fall all the way to the bottom. There's no way anyone could survive it. I broke batman's rule.

    Did you inspect him with Detective Vision? It would probably still have showed him as "unconscious".

    I would certainly hope    Hush    won't. Batman said 'I'll take care of him tomorrow', so unless the next game takes place the day after, Batman really dropped the ball on that one.
