Kills your battery, high difficulty, paid continuation
In front of you is an incredibly dynamic action game from Gameloft, where you have to defend Gotham City from everyone trying to plunge it into chaos. Naturally, in the role of Batman invincible. Although, the degree of his invincibility will depend on you and no one else. The game The Dark Knight Rises is built on the same-name film and the similarity between them is simply astounding. However, in the game, for obvious reasons, most of the episodes far from action are omitted, but that doesn't make it any less interesting.
It all starts with a short introduction in which, as expected, the basic nature of the game and the motives which impel its main characters on certain things are reflected. To be successful, you must follow a certain sequence of actions and take into account whom you have to fight against. It won't be very difficult to determine the location, because in this respect, you will literally be led by the hand, but you will have to decide yourself from whom of the enemies to begin the battle. In many cases, this will be the determinative factor.
Objectives and tasksOf course, your main target will be a person in a kind of a muzzle named Bane, but you are still very far away from this and, at first, you will have to deal with his mercenaries. There's no sense to retell the plot of the game. If you watch the movie, you will understand, and if don't, then a short retelling will give you nothing useful. The main thing is to correctly and in time react to the appearance of people whose behavior is far from that of a law-abiding citizen, and then you will get what you were looking for, namely an adventure with the blood smell and the leaden taste.
The events of the game are developing very rapidly, and this is probably one of the first games from Gameloft in which nobody will slop about you. While in the game The Amazing Spider-Man you could still afford to relax by upbringing one of the enemies, in this game, as long as you beat one culprit, others will blaze away at you. You can feel it in the second or third mission already.
Game featuresSince we recall Spider-Man, it is worth mentioning that the games are, in fact, very similar. This is reflected in the manner of the main characters to move across locations (one is flying through the web, the second moves by the wings and the rope) and in controlling. There are still lots of buttons in the game, but most of them will be active only when they can be used, and depending on the situation, the same button may be responsible for different actions. So at first, you will definitely fail to play blind.
ResumeAs for the graphics, it is really gorgeous and way better than the one that we used to love in the new Spiderman. In general, the game is really worth a lot of attention, even though its price is higher than the average price on the market of mobile applications. We recommend it to all fans of the genre.
