Nobody Said I Can't Be A Geek

Why the title? Because over the last 4 days I've been playing the new Batman game for the PS3.

How is it? Pretty good. Actually, it's really good. I probably will buy it (I rushed through it since I was borrowing the game) but I'll wait until the price comes down or I find it used.

Why 4 days? Because I had the hardest time finding the Batcave for the second time. You can rarely find any hints online for that one (drop down the elevator shaft in the Medical Facility since all other ways are blocked).

Why I think I liked it so much is that it reminded me a lot of Soul Reaver. I figure they'll never release any Soul Reaver games for the PS3 so this is as close as it gets. Complete with changing "modes" to figure puzzles out; Soul Reaver had Spectral Mode, Batman has Detective Mode. And being made by Edios, that doesn't surprise me at all. I didn't look at the credits but I'd bet the same guy did the music for both.

So if you're looking to kill some quality time, this is the game to do it with.

Thanks, Chris - you're alright.
