I loved Asylum, but City left me increasingly distanced and bored. The writing was a large part of that, as it was nigh-incoherent, culminating in an ending that would only have impact if it actually was in continuity.

Arkham City's story was abysmal. It really spoilt my enjoyment of an otherwise awesome game. I hope it doesn't get an award for it's story... Anything but it's story!
