Unable to get past first fight scene with Penguin's thugs

Postby traxxton » Jun 27th, 2015, 11:37 am

I played through this game when it came out, but recently purchased the GOTY edition on Steam. Im having a problem where I can not get past the first fight scene with penguins thugs after bruce enters the prison. I saw a walkthough on youtube and it seems that after a few punches the cuffs come off, take down the thugs, and climb up the ladder. Well, my cuffs never come off and I can never take down any of the thugs. Is there a bug in the game or am I doing something wrong here??? I have the game set to easy. I tried everything; dying, deleting gamesave and restarting the game, restarting my computer, even once I lasted about 20 minutes of just punching everyone till I died and none of them were taken down. Any ideas?

No man, I'm sorry. I have no ideas. Never heard of such a problem before.
10pm... I feel the rain coming down. My face feels wet, my mind the storm.
Flashing lights as people race to find shelter from the pour.

Don't strike only counter, it's a counter that breaks the cuffs.

That's it. The game didn't say anything, so I kept on punching and nothing happened. Works now!
