I don't see what that has to do with anything. Not all Christians are like that.

I think this was supposed to be ironic.

He's thanking God.

Plus he capitalized God. Which usually means the person doing so believes in God.

Not necessarily, I'm an atheist but I still capitalize God because it's a proper noun

Even though that I'm a christian, I got to admit this is just ridiculous. Most of the comic books(if not all of them) contain blood, and violence, so, what did you expect from a video game based on a comic book that is rated 16+?
Also, how can you feel bad for kicking some thugs' asses? I mean, they killed and beated the shit out of some good people in this game, so, punch them until they get unconscious is the least that you gotta do. You gotta give those bad guys what they deserve for their bad acts, this is justice, this is what the character of Batman is all about.
If you don't like or want to avoid the use of violence by your own hands to achieve the good of the people, simple, just go play Nintendo Wii, I bet that there you will find a lot of fun games for the whole family, that also doesn't require the use of violence.
Sorry guys if I sounded like a dick. I just had to take it off my chest.

BTW "Graphics: 40/100" ?! This is bullshit.

So it's bad game, since rates for T and 16 isn't child-friendly?

And Batman shouldn't punch bad guys, but ask them to stop?

Graphics 4/10? If you played with low-PC then yeah.

This.


FAMILIES MIGHT WANT TO KNOW IF IT WOULD BE A GOOD GAME TO PLAY TOGETHER


ITS A 16 GAME! Families do not I repeat do not play 16 rated games together. Well they at least they should not. Seriously another game review by some religious guy who says, "OH THE BITCHES IN THIS GAME WERE SLUTTY AND I LAUGHED SO I HAD TO PRAY". Its fucking dumb.

what...the...POW...

I mean, why did they even review the game? Of course it's not a "family friendly" game because it's not meant to be a cutesy Disney game. I mean, I get the whole christian thing but holy shit, it seems to me like an christian extremists review...

That was almost laughable how ridiculous that review was...way out of line and way out of hand.

As a Christian, this review kind of frustrates me... It's basic premise for the review is flawed. It's getting a poor rating basically because it's not rated appropriate for small children, and fails to understand that game's are not just for small children. Now, if this was not meant to be a "review" of the game itself, and serve as more simply how appropriate it is for small children or for parents to play with children, then it's fine. That said, if this is the goal of the website, why is this even being reviewed in the first place? First, all of the violence is well justified. These inmates have either hurt, are hurting, or intend to hurt others, and will just about as readily attack you too. That's perfect justification for knocking out some teeth and snapping some arms every now and then... Personally, I typically overlook "language" on occasion as it's just normal. Guess what? People curse. Nothing new. Besides, "bad words" is very relative as what makes language inappropriate is the context in which the term is being used. Now where I can have a problem is when you can't go a single sentence without cursing. That's just annoying, stupid, and honestly, it shows lack of a good vocabulary, and in the case of a book, movie, and video game, it shows poor writing. I also hate poor language when the expletive makes no sense in the sentence. I'm surprised how often I hear every day people curse in a way that makes no sense simply because they wanted to throw a curse word into a sentence in a way that makes zero sense. If ya gotta curse, fine, but at least make sense. The only time I actually got annoyed with the language was in the Arkham games was AC's Catwoman DLC when every other sentence had someone calling her a bitch. Honestly, the whole argument of the game being able to "give people nightmares", that all depends on how easily scared you are, or if you're a 3 year old... It's dark and occasionally creepy, for sure, but I wouldn't say nightmare inducing... I have cousins, Christian cousins, ages 13, 10, and 10 who greatly enjoy these games, and yeah, they found the Scarecrow sequences freaky, they thought it was awesome because Scarecrow is one of their favorite Batman villains... only my 5 year old cousin probably couldn't handle it, and while my aunt and uncle let him play it, I personally do not think those games should be advertised to anyone under the ages of at least 10-12, depending on the kid of course, as I have relatively mature cousins for their respective ages. But that's just me. Bottom line, the review wasn't about the quality of the game itself and more of "why this game isn't good because it's not marketed for toddlers"... in fact, this game doesn't even pretend to be for small children in the first place. I find the site's Arkham City review, while not all that extensive, a much more objective review. I applaud the site's goals of picking apart games to see whether or not they are appropriate for parents to show their kids, but that's where it should end, and not try to be an actual
"review" of the game, as a great game such as this, may not be the most appropriate for children. Guess what, just because it's a game, doesn't mean it's meant for children, nor does it mean it HAS to be for children.

I don't see the point of reviewing this type of game for a family friendly website, it has a mature tone to it. If people are reviewing a game based on how family friendly it is then they themselves are pathetic. An opinion on a game shouldn't be given based on who it caters for.

I am ashamed to say I did laugh at some of it, and have since repented for that sin.


Wow really? I really wonder what people think of Christians... It's these types of people that give Christianity a bad image.

Either way I'm not here to shove religion down peoples throats' as I don't agree with that. I'm just very annoyed with how pathetic some people are.
In short, this review is absolute bullshit.

As a Christian I can't agree more. People like this who can't see that life can be dark and we can enjoy that, really get on my nerves.

Really good job. I am a catholic and I completely agree with you especially with the fact that the Catwoman dlc went to far.
