The combat is intuitive and ridiculously fun (dropping down silently from a gargoyle to snag a bad guy never ever gets old), the gadgets are cool, the voice acting is impeccable (hats off to Mark Hamill and Arleen Sorkin, in particular), and the level of detail and little nods to characters in the Batman universe scattered around the island really take it to another level.

Hammill should have been Joker in the Dark Knight. There, I said it.

I don't know how well he'd do in a live action role, but yeah, in terms of voice acting he's as good as it gets.

I noticed a lot of screen-tearing and pixelation, even in the cutscenes, and the lip-synching was meh, but overall it's pretty good, and the animations are really smooth.
