Hey guys, I know a thread has also been made for this but I thought I would make a newer one as the reviews out tomorrow. Can we all band together and try and stick scans up here as well as links? I'm betting it will get 8/9 out of 10.

Aslong as it gets 7/10 i'm happy enough.

Yea that would be fine. I'm sure they will take into consideration the delay for polishing and stuff.

Cheers in advance =)

Maaaaybe I guess. They might say " sorry but due to the game being pulled back we thought it best to review at a later stage, sorry for the inconvenience" I can see them saying that. But we will know soon enough, if you go past the magazine and it has Batman streching along the cover, then it's in there for sure :D

Oooh and one more thing, KEIR?! (sorry for the caps, but it might help get attention)
Are you able to tell us more info about the review and how it's going?........although saying that...I think he is still visiting Rocksteady for meetings.

I'm betting it will get a low score. I hope it doesn't but there's this sinking feeling that there is some nasty flaw or repetetive gameplay that will screw it over.
Plus, I have a bad feeling that we won't see a lot of villains. I mean, why hasn't the bio page been updated?

Why should it get updated? Not everything needs to be spilled out.

If they're delaying the game we should be given something to keep us talking, surely?

Exactly! They are not going to release every villain bio b4 the games release. Sefton Hill and Jamie Walker have already said that there are more surprises in store and I think more villains will include; Mr.Freeze, Poison Ivy and Scarecrow :D

I sincerely hope it gets at least an 8...

7 in my book is "above average and fun enough to keep it interesting." Critics are usually hard on games anyway but this game looks a lot more promising than a 7.

But then again, I haven't played it.

"Break Bane" trailer and "Joker challange maps" are pretty damn new you know. =P And you can't know what the future holds.

Will the review be inlcuded in the US/ Canadien playstation magazine?

I'm asking him for scans, but my friend got the magazine early, as some stores start unpacking a day or two ahead of the intended date. He told me that he flipped through all of it and saw that they rated Arkham Asylum 5/10, saying that it got very repetitive and was frustratingly unpolished. They also said that many of the boss battles sucked, as the devs simply disabled blocking, etc.

No wonder it got pushed back... hopefuly they will establish a release date that will meet the requirements of then concluding their polishing, and will become more inovative with the boss fight. We can only hope.

well that puts a real dampener on things :hmm:

5/10? Wow... If It gets scores like that, I might not even rent it. :\

If BAA is disappointing, I give up on all super-hero related games. And I'll be very, very mad at Rocksteady.

EliteF50
7th May 2009, 03:40
Wait, they said "frustratingly unpolished..."

Nooooo!!!

Why Rocksteady, why?! I can't stand unpolished games. As for boss fights, I agree. They shouldn't disable blocking. It sucked in the demo.

Hopefully Sammi can get use some screens to confirm this. I have to say I didn't see this coming.

A very cold post indeed:(

but i wont believe it till I see proof:hmm: , i find it quite hard for it to be just a 5 a lot of other sites and magazines (even people who have played the gamespot demos) have spoken about how impressive and fun the game is.:scratch:

I'm boycotting Eidos is this game fails, and I'm going to throw poop at Rocksteady's HQ.

Who's with me?!

Guys, I was just kidding. I had a bad April Fools this year, and I wanted to see how some fans would react without researching first. :) This game will be great.

Fine. We'll set a bag of poop on fire, knock on their door, and run away.

Better?

wait a second, if you posted this up, then why did you say this later on.



Damn. ;/

EDIT: Scans?

why would ask for scans over the interwebs when you said you where asking for scans from your friend in real life? :scratch:

and then there's this....

ok, im calling bullsh(t on this whole 5 rating thing. games this good looking get at least 6's and everything we have seen so far shows this game is going to play pretty damn well. plus the source its coming from is suspect in my mind.

no, i call BS on it all, and until i see a scan i aint believing sh(t.

Is this from Game Informer or something else and were you Ensanguined Walls and Gho-Gher...... just fooling with us. I could understand no blocking but Batman just dodges and parries, right? The only time I saw him block was in Batman Begins on the monorail vs. Ducard. He blocks the sword with both arms but he breaks it with the fins or guantlets. So it was more of a counter than a block. What good is blocking going to do when surrounded by 10 thugs. That is why it is free-flow combat, and again I have to say this Batman only counters an attack, just like how he uses a batarang or how he flips people over his shoulder and smashes them to the floor. Blocking protects you one on one but countering stuns a guy and leaves you to dealing with one less guy until he recovers again.

How can a boss battle suck that bad? Especially if you are using your tools and strategic thinking.

Unpolished.....There shouldn't be a lot either, but if this is true it is sad. BUT this rumor sounds a lot like the third or fourth quarter release of the game in December, so I don't believe it.

No offense to anyone but I have to say if it was an actual review get better players, beta, sounds like it was too hard for them

That was what I was thinking too kadashi666, sounds like someone else was on ensanguined wall's account

5/10 wow that sucks now I'm glad this game got pushed back, good thing I reserved the standard edition.

Next time dont posts jokes because some people take it real seriously and it also destroys the thread which leads to closing. Im not saying i cant take jokes, i didnt even take that seriously especially when other reviews have been good.

7th May 2009, 10:40
Hmm. Yeah.. I highly doubt any of this is true. Especially after all the praise from previous insider views.

Keir
7th May 2009, 11:06
None of it is true. What a lame thread this turned out to be.

It's difficult enough as it is trying to make sure people get the info they need without this kind of thing.

Closed.
