    • It's nice to see a game which shows that The Bat spends most of his time in detective work, but a game where you don't also get to do combat is really not one that is going to have a lot of legs to it. A shame they didn't opt to even put in a third-person view of a traditional Batman-game fighting system. People seem to insist on wanting to do first person, but to me it's very engrossing just to have typical games done in a VR manner just for the sense of presence in the game and the stereoscopic 3-D quality.
